7:25 PM Update- Loads of small Bluefish all along the beaches again.  Mullet & small metals with teasers are a good choice for these little guys.  There is usually a few Herring/Hickory Shad mixed in as well.  Both are loads of fun on light tackle.  Tog/Blackfish action at the inlet continues to keep anglers busy.  Henry K. (photo below) was in with his Mom to get bait for the weekend.  They shared this awesome photo from last weekend and the bluefish action Henry had.  Nice job Henry!!!!  I'm sure you will get a Striped Bass next.  Thanks for sharing your report and photo. - John

6:30 AM- A few local/resident Striped Bass along the beaches mostly on bait.  Loads of small Bluefish still along the beaches on Mullet.  Blackfish/Tog action at the inlet has been productive using Green Crabs.  We received another fresh supply of Bunker yesterday and have more ordered for later today.    We had several early birds in this morning for bait.  Will let you know when we hear any specific reports. - John

Yesterday (10/20/16)- Had a report from Jimmy Betz in Loveladies.  There were large pods of rainfish with small bluefish and herring in them.  Keep an eye out, they are probably headed South.  Small bluefish continued to dominate the surf scene again today. - John

Day before Yesterday (10/19/16)- We had our first Bluefish weighed in for the Derby.  Marcella Friedman (left photo) landed the fish at 11:00 AM in the morning from the Barnegat Light surf on an Ava jig.  The bluefish weighed 8.96 pounds.  She had 3 other nice size bluefish, but this was the only fish over 30 inches.  Nice job Marcella and Congrats!!  There was also a nice Bass weighed in for the Derby at Jingles B&T.  Jimmy Finn caught the 45 inch, 33.44 pound bass last night at the north end on bunker.  Very nice fish!  Sorry, I don't have a photo of that one.  Loads of small Bluefish still along the beaches on Mullet.  Mike sent us this picture (right photo) of a nice haul of bluefish he got yesterday along the mid-island surf.  Blackfish/Tog action at the inlet has been productive using Green Crabs. - John
