When blue fish are taking mullet in the surf (Florida frozen that is) although cocktail size and the evenings are getting cooler how far away can the start of fall be? The boat anglers just north of us out of Belmar are really pounding the fluke but for us in this area it’s not so much. The areas…

Great weather but not so great fishing. The surf is kinda slow with the usual fluke and blue fish being the main daytime targets. Brown sharks and the annoying occasional ray at night. Crabbing has still not bounced back from the effect of the full moon, but snappers are still keeping anglers busy from the dock… John…
