​6:40 AM-We should be receiving fresh bunker today - will let you know when it arrives.  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 7/26/16- Kingfish & Fluke continued keeping anglers busy off the surf & inlet, along with our summer resident skates & dogfish.  Snapper blues & blowfish in the bay on suid/spearing/clam baits.  Had a small crab come in to be measured by 9 year old Will (left photo).  After the photo they released the crab to grow bigger.  Thanks so much for stopping in to measure your catch!  Captain Rick of the Sea Eagle (right photo) charter fishing boat got his customers on some nice Stripers.  One was 18 lbs - Not bad for July!
