New Jersey Fishing Update – Bluefin, Bluefish & Makos all around in good numbers

The offshore season has certainly started off on a good note.  Early reports a couple weeks ago of Bluefin moving through the area, are now confirmed with fish taking up residence on many of the lumps along the 20 fathom curve, about 30 miles offshore.  The Bluefin are mostly smaller fish from 15 to 30 pounds, but some larger fish are mixed in and when you find them, they can be caught in good numbers.  The bigger Bluefish are holding in the same areas, and of course, where you find the tuna and blues, you will find the sharks.  Mako Shark fishing has been quite good, with some nice Threshers and Blue Sharks mixed in as well.  The shark action can be found anywhere from 30 to 45 miles off the beach in the 20 to 30 fathoms depths. The inshore Shark action should hold up another week or so while the Bluefish stick tight to the lumps.  Meanwhile, the next few weeks should offer some great opportunities to target Yellowfin on the 100 fathom curve (take a look at Capt. John’s report from Ocean City, MD), during the day, and switching over to Makos in the evening.  Big makos often travel with the Yellowfin this time of year and a couple tuna heads are deadly on them once the sun sets.  A Yellowfin/Mako overnight combo trip would be the perfect way to target both species and the next couple weeks should present one of the best opportunities to fish for them, until we get similar conditions again in the Fall as the water cools. Best Bets for Fishing the next couple weeks:

1.       10 Hour Inshore Shark Trips

2.       8 Hour Bluefish Trips

3.       10 Hour Inshore Bluefin Tuna Trips targeting school fish on light tackle

4.       22 Hour Overnight Trips Targeting Yellowfin during the day and Makos’ at night

5.       Back Bay Flounder Trips

Bahamas Report

That’s Right is back up in Ocean City and I started out this weekend with good fishing. The shark fishing has been outstanding with lots of Makos and Blues and a handful of Threshers. The Offshore fishing has also been good as some warmer water has pushed into the 100 Fathom line in between the Normans and Washington. And there have been Yellowfins scattered up and down the line. Most of us were catching anywhere from 4 to 15 fish ranging from 30 to 50 pounds…a nice class of fish. The water was clean green and 68 degrees. Most bites were coming on the plastic stuff, spreader bars and chains and a few bites on the Hoo’s. Just a touch outside in 500 fathoms the guys were finding even warmer water. There was quite a bit of debris and most of it was holding nice gaffer Dolphins. The Billfishing was even productive with both Blue Marlin and White’s running around. So, overall it has been an outstanding first week of fishing and the outlook is looking good!

Tarpon fishing in Key West and the Lower Keys is at its peak, with anglers reporting double digit hookups on conventional gear as well as fly rod.

In Key West Harbor, our best fishing has been from our center console using shrimpboat trash or by catch. From the skiff, we've been having great action live baiting and fly fishing. The best catches have been coming early and late, and it’s a great time of year to do a split day, where you fish from 5 am to 9 am, then hit the water again in the afternoon starting at around 6 pm until 10 in the evening.

Another exciting opportunity are our Marquesas mothership excursions. We just got back from one last week, in which 6 anglers on three skiffs jumped 30 tarpon to 120 pounds. Fishing from the mothership Playmate, we're able to be on the best water at daybreak, just about the time most other skiff guides are putting their boats in the water.

We still have a few openings for the evenings surrounding a probable palalo worm hatch from the 24th until the 30th. Contact us for more information on these one-of-a-kind multi-day flats fishing adventures.

Offshore, we're continuing to see some good dolphin fishing and the reef action has been excellent for yellowtails, mutton snapper, black and red grouper. That should continue to get better as we move towards another spawn on the full moon.

The Pretty Work has been steady going in the Florida Keys, which by the way is still wide open and Oil free!! Capt. Mark and Capt. Andrew have been catching plenty of schoolie Dolphin with a few 15 to 20lb fish mixed in. There have also been some Blackfin tunas on the Humps. Inside on the reef edge the Snapper fishing is crazy limits in an hour!! The Permit are still on the wrecks and eating the live crabs like gumdrops. Capt Clyde and Capt. Jeff have been doing well on the flats, bridges and backcountry. Capt Clyde has been slamming the Bonefish and Tarpon mostly on the fly and sight fishing. Capt. Clyde has released several 130lb plus Tarpon as of late and real good numbers on the Bonefish and Permit. Capt. Jeff has done well on the Bridges for the night time Tarpon bite and tells me the Backcountry is full of life with super catches of all types of fish. The outlook for the next couple weeks in the Keys is good. The Dolphin fishing should stay great with the bigger fish due to show up anytime. The Reef will come alive with great Mangrove and Hogfish fishing.
