Fisherman Magazine Update

After a heated week of Jersey Shore politics, state parks are once again open throughout the Garden State, with surfcasters back on the two fluke at 16-inch limit at Island Beach State Park. A few stripers still in the mix, kingfish are mixed with fluke inshore, while sharks are taking up a position in the night surf. Meanwhile boats hitting some of the deeper reefs and wrecks are finding gangbuster action with jumbo ling and giant winter flounder, while also picking away at the cod and enjoying the two-fish sea bass pickups along the way. A few bigger fluke are coming by way of the Old Grounds and inshore reef sites, while Raritan Bay doormat action is on the uptick as well. Offshore, reports have more yellowfin moving into the Lindenkohl now, along with bigeye, though what’s being called a “mid-range bluefin bonanza” has big game hunters looking to the Chicken Canyon and Triple Wrecks for quick limits. For your chance to fish with a BASS PRO, the IKE Foundation will be holding their annual pro-am contest this weekend in Camden in an effort to get more kids into fishing. Advance weather forecast for the weekend ahead shows mostly sunny skies and lower humidity, with plenty of options from the coast to the canyon to keep you in the thick of things in this second weekend of July.
