The bay is clam and 72°.
Low tide is 3:59AM and 4:01PM. High tide is at 9:52AM and 9:55PM.
A handful of fluke weigh-ins yesterday! First we had Dave Lampman, from the Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club, with a 2.84lb, 20.5″ caught using minnows near the inlet. Then John Wall with a 4.22lb, 23.25″ using pink shine gulp. John was on the Miss Beach Haven. Both of those were Jingles tournament fish! Then we had Bob Severi, 5.10lbs, and 23.5″ at Little Egg Reef!! In the surf Connor had a few shorts, but they are out there along with kingfish, bluefish, sharks and rays. In the bay, fluke, weakfish, bluefish and some blowfish. Reports of bluefish in the inlet and crabbing still good.
Today we have fresh bunker, minnows and bloodworms.
