May 23, 2023 - Went out Sea Bass fishing today and Sunday. Sunday afternoon I was invited to fish on the On Point with Captain Alex. Fished a number of spots on the Axel Carlson reef. We limited out in 2 1/5 hours. Many, many fish caught on both jigs and bait. Today fished with Captain George and ventured out to a rough patch just inside and north of the Shark River reef. The ocean was a little sporty, but very fishable on the drift. Didn't have the numbers as we did on Sunday, but we managed 23 nice corker sea bass. All the fish on bait. We started off with regular salted clams, but switched over to the rainbow clams, which were much more effective in staying on the hook.
May 20, 2023 - Sea Bass fishing continues to be outstanding on the local reefs, wrecks and rough spots. Jigs and clams have each been effective. Fluke in the river is improving daily, with bigger fish being reported. Bluefin tuna have also been caught over the weekend. It was reported that the fish were caught on the troll. Ocean stripers have also been caught from Seaside up to Long Branch.
May 18, 2023 - Sea bass fishing for those who were able to make it out Wednesday was outstanding. Captain Alex on the On Point came into the dock by 9:00 am with a limit of sea bass. The fishing was good on both the Axel Carlson and Sea Girt Reefs. The bluefish have been blitzing the Manasquan River at times. And the fluke fishing in the River keeps getting better as the water temperatures continue to rise. Many fish over five pounds have been caught.
May 16, 2023 - Blues are busting inside the Inlet this morning!!!!
May 8, 2023 - Striper fishing picked up in the ocean over the weekend. Most of the fish were reported in the usual areas; Asbury Park, Deal, the Rocks. The bay/river striper fishing was also good this past week, with fish being caught at the railroad bridge, the canal and the areas around the Mantoloking Bridge. Fluke fishing was hit or miss, with the best action being reported above the canal. There have been tuna spotted going through bunker schools, but haven't heard or seen any hookups.
May 3, 2023 - Fluke season opened yesterday, have heard of some fluke being caught above the canal area. Bluefish exploded today in the Manasquan Inlet. Good size fish hitting SP Minnows and XRaps.
April 12, 2023 - Fishing this week continues to improve. Captain Bob on the Gambler reported good fishing today for blackfish and cod on the local rough spots. Stripers are biting in the River and bay at the bridges and holes. There have been a few flounder and blackfish caught in the inlet.
April 3, 2023 - Good size Striped Bass have been biting for the last week in the northern Barnegat Bay. Fish are being caught on plugs. Flounder fishing has picked up in the last few days as water temperatures continue to rise. Blackfish are also being caught on green crabs in the canal.
