9:50 AM Update- We just ran out of Blood Worms, Sorry. We are also out of fresh mullet, but have a load of thawed mullet that was pre-frozen. - John
5:00 AM- Small bluefish continue keeping anglers busy on the front beaches using mullet. Kingfish action improved a bit yetserday as you can see from yesterday's report below. Blood Worms & Fish Bites are the baits to use for Kings. A few Weakfish, Fluke & small Striped Bass have also been caught by anglers targeting Kingfish. Blowfish, Kingfish & small Bluefish in the bay on Blood Worm, Fishbites, Spearing, & Clam baits. The boats continue doing well with Fluke, with the season coming to a close this Sunday. Snapper/Cocktail size bluefish at the inlet on small metal lures and bucktails. A few keeper size Tog reported at the inlet, but you have to weed through a load of small fish to get them. Some keeper fluke also in the inlet but short fish are still the norm. Crabbing is still doing very well. Good Luck to all fishing the ASAC Surf Fishing Tournament today in Harvey Cedars hosted by the Long Beach Island Fishing Club. Will let you know if we hear anything today. - John

Yesterday (9/23/16)- Several reports of Kingfish today. One duo of surf anglers scored with 10 nice size Kingfish. "Yellow Boots" (left photo) was in with a nice report. He had 2 kingfish and this 30 inch Bass all on Blood Worms this morning. Lachlan Pirrello (right photo) just weighed another Kingfish for the "NJ Beach N Boat" tournament. It was 12 inches and weighed 11 oz. Lachlan's dad Steve lost a nice Striped Bass in the wash today while targeting Kingfish. I saw several short Fluke caught from the South end surf this morning while hunting for mullet. - John
