3:15 PM Update-We now have live Blood Worms!!!  Got a report from one of the customers on the "Hunter" Charter Boat today.  They did very well with keeper fluke and a few Seabass.  Capt. Eddie Yates always seems to find fish.  Brandon (left photo) just stopped in with 2 keeper fluke to 2#, 11oz. from the north end surf on bucktail/gulp.  He had a pile of shorts as well.  His buddy Rad (middle photo) released this nice fluke just shy of 18 inches also on gulp.  Just had a nice crab measured in for our store contest.  Stella (right photo) with a 5.25 inch blue claw.  That was her first crab and it was a nice one.  Thanks everyone for stopping in to let us know how you made out today!!! - John

​7:05 AM-Decent Kingfish again yesterday as you can see from the report below.  Week #4 of our Kid's Crabbing Contest is still underway - good luck to all.  Some of the small Snapper Bluefish in the bay are now large enough to take a hook.  Skates & Dogfish continue keeping most surf anglers busy.  But there are also a few Bluefish, Summer Flounder, Kingfish, Rays, Trigger, Weakfish, Striped Bass, & Brown Sharks to keep things interesting.  The fluke fishing in the bay and ocean has been decent for boaters with a few more keepers being reported.  We now offer more rentals for the summer.  We have always offered fishing rod rentals in various sizes, now we have added crab trap rentals, clam rake rentals, and a seine net rental.  Supplies are limited and can't be reserved.  First come, first served.  Stop by the store or call for details.

Yesterday 7/27/16- We have a new leader, or co-leaders for week #4 of our store "Kid's Crabbing Contest".  Alex & Will (bottom left photo) came in with a big 6.25" crab.  Their sister Allie (bottom middle photo) also came in to measure a crab that they later released.  These guys were all in yesterday and said they were going back for a bigger crab,.  And they did!!!  Great job kids, and thanks so much for bringing in your catch.  Love the smiles.  Brandon P (top right photo) stopped in with a nice 2 pound, 11 oz. Blackfish today.  Waiting on the photo and will post as soon as I can.  Lots of Kingfish reported from the beach the evening.  Bobby (top left photo) stopped in with a few of the 8 kings he caught from the Surf City beach just now on Blood Worms.  Also had a visit from Nora (top middle photo), and her Dad.  They had a blast catching a load of small snapper bluefish at Sunset Park in Harvey Cedars on our rental rods.  Nice job everyone, and thanks so much for stopping in to let us know how you did!!! - John
