7:00 PM Update- In the mad rush of today I missed a photo this morning.  I hate when that happens.  Anyway; Martin Supsie weighed in this nice 25 pound, 1 oz. bass from the Barnegat Light surf this morning on bunker.  Marty now takes over 1st place in our store tournament.  Nice job Marty!!! - John










5:05 PM Update- Our fresh bunker has arrived.  But he was only able to get us 70 pounds, so it will not last long.  Very sorry about that.  Clear water today made the bunker fishing a challenge today. - John


1:25 PM Update- We are currently out of fresh bunker - sorry.  Expecting more this afternoon.  Will let you know as soon as it arrives.  We do have some bunker from Friday in a salted brine for those wanting to go that route rather than waiting on the fresh.  Tony A. stopped in with 1 of 2 bluefish today from the LBI surf on bunker.  They were not weighed.   I will try and keep you updated as best I can. - John










​7:00 AM Update- Yesterday was again on the slow side when compared to the action we've had over the last few weeks, but fish were caught as you can see below in yesterdays report.  Several guys were in throughout the night and early this morning for fresh bunker.  Let you know when we hear back from them.  We are running VERY LOW on Fresh Bunker.  We will be getting more later today but not before we run out.  Let you know as soon as it arrives. - John




Yesterday (5/23/16)- Slower than it has been but fish were caught along the beaches and again at the inlet.  Joe (left photo) was in cleaning a few of the bluefish he caught from the Beach haven surf using bunker.  The largest went 9 pounds, 4 oz.   Jimmy Betz sent a text from the mid-island surf.  He had an 8 pound bluefish in the evening on bunker and noted that he was the only guy on the beach.  Then the @ReelMaxLife crue (right photo) stopped in to ice down their fine catch of bluefish from the Barnegat inlet this evening on artificials.  They ended up catching 12 or so.  Also mentioned some short striped bass at the very end of the south jetty.  Pictured left to right are: Ellis, AJ Max, and D Man.  Congrats guys and thanks so much for stopping in and letting us know how you made out today. - John

We really like when we get reports back & pictures make it even nicer. Towards the end of June 2015 we had the pleasure of meeting a friendship duo Wayne & Jim. Wayne was kind enough to say these words~Good morning Sue, John & Holden, 
We came to Surf City for a family reunion, but I also came with the intensions of catching some fish.  That's why I call it 'catching' and not fishing.  And all three of you are the reasons we enjoyed ourselves so much on the shores of Surf City catching our different fish after the sun AND moon cooled off in the ocean!  The blues were fun to land and certainly quite different than landing them from a boat 25 miles off shore.  Perhaps with a bit more practice, we could go for their striper cousins!   Jim spent the last 20+ years in Alaska claiming he worked for a living, but we all know he spent years tossing his fishing line into the beautiful waterways of the state.  My wife & I are from Pittsburgh, Pa, and we have been blessed to have put our fishing lines in waters(salt & fresh) all over the USA & Canada at different times. Thanks for your gift of enthusiasm & passion for the sport and for the use of your equipment and cleaning station on the morning after.  We hope to see you next year about the same time when we stop in to see your smiles, check on what's running and pick up the necessities to go 'catching' once again. God bless.  Wayne

If Wayne & Jim are reading this-please know the pleasure was all ours. We love what we do & we are who we are because of you & everyone else who steps through our doors. We are truly blessed. It was so much fun getting to know the two of you. Look forward to seeing you again. Until we meet again, keep smiling & enjoying life, after all each day is another day in paradise!
