It’s a bright sunny but cool morning today in Beach Haven! Sun should keep shining all day but it’s not going to warm up too much. Winds are mild this morning coming from the ENE at about 8mph. Currently, the surf is choppy but with only 1-2 foot waves. You will need 4-5 oz to hold. The LBI 5th Street Beach Haven sea temperature is 52°. The air temp is currently 45° (feels like 39) and heading to 52°.

The bay is calm and 49°.

Low tide is at 4:19AM and 4:08PM. High tide is at 10:02AM and 10:11PM.

It’s been a couple of day since a Spring Derby weigh-in but striped bass are still being caught up and down the island. Rob Z and Bob G were both out mid-week and each caught stripers that were just under, and I have had others come in the store who had some nice keepers. And don’t forget to try for the bluefish – there were two bluefish weigh-ins earlier in the week.

Don’t forget to sign up for the Spring Derby at Fisherman’s Headquarters, Surf City Bait & Tackle or here at Jingles. $20 to register and its a 100% payout! Plus a great $150 gift card prize for the “Surf Master” Catch & Release segment. Here at Jingles we also have our in-store tournament. We still have a $25 gift card still up for grabs here at Jingles for the first IN-store tournament bluefish weigh-in.

Today we have SURF CLAMS and BLOODWORMS! Don’t forget your bait bucket. If you do not have one, we have Jingles Bait Buckets for just $3! Catching fish?? Send us your reports to jinglesbait@comcast.net!
