Most days recently we have had bottom fish like Spot, Roundhead and Perch. Some very nice Speckled Trout in the 2-4 pound class have been pleasing anglers at varying times and tides. More smaller Specks and Grey Trout have also been caught.

Bluefish are no longer showing up in the vast schools that were seen in the 70s, 80s and 90s, but some fish up to about 13 lbs have been caught. Smaller Blues in the 2-4 lb class are more readily available and they tend to be around all Summer long.

Blue Crabs are plentiful this season. If you don’t have any crab nets be sure to stop in the Pier Tackle Shop for all your crabbing needs. They are also open 24 hrs starting May 26th.
