We had some derby weigh-ins yesterday – including bluefish!! But first, Matt Shapiro brought his catch here, a 17.02lbs and 35 7/8″ striped bass caught in Holgate using surf clams. Up in Barnegat Light, Vince Orzel caught a 5.52lb, 27.25″ bluefish using a plug. It’s a great time to be down here fishing! Bass, blues, fluke….
Today we have surf clams in the shell, and fresh shucked. We also have live minnows.
