Fishing Report

By The Dock Outfitters | July 18, 2022

Surf fishing is now in summer time mode. Although the water temps are still on the cooler side, the bite says summer is here. Fluke, king fish and blues are the main targets with rays and dogfish also putting bends in rods. The bay has blowfish, small fluke and medium size blues. Crabbing remains steady…

The surf bite has slowed a bit. Fluke, bluefish, and king fish remain the main targets. Crabbing out back off the dock is good right now, with the rental boats also putting together some nice catches. Fluke and blue fishing in the bay is spotty at best right now.

Fluke fishing in the surf remains good! Bucktails tipped with Gulp is the way to go! Bluefish and bass are also being taken on cut baits and clams. The crabbing in the bay off our rental boats is heating up, with our dock producing as well.

There is still a nice mix of fish along our beaches. Blues, bass, and fluke remain the main targets for the surf angler. Cut bait and clams will work well on the blues and bass while Gulp fished alone or tipped on a bucktail jig are accounting for the lions share of flatties. Crabbing in…

Fluke remains the main target in the surf right now, with blues and striped bass still in the mix. The number one bait for the flatties is Gulp fished on a buck tail or a high low rig. Cut bunker, clams, and sand mole crabs will all bring fish to your hooks when the fish…

Nice size crabs were being pulled up on drop lines yesterday from our dock out back! Anglers fishing cut baits were also into small to midsize blues! Looks like things are starting to heat up out there! Surf fishing remains the same. Bass blues and fluke are still feeding in close, not a ton but…

The fluke bite in the surf at IBSP is starting to heat up. Tipping a bucktail jig with gulp, squid or spearing is your best bet. There are still some bass, blues, and black drum around taking cut bunker and clams. Bluefish are being taken out back off our dock on cut bait, not a…

A mixed bag is available right now in the surf, bass, blues, fluke, and black drum being the main cast. But the ever pesky dog fish and rays seem to be always present. Bait is still the way to go. Cut bunker and clams are your one two punch followed by squid and mullet. The…

Surf fishing in our area has slowed down a bit! But bass, blues, and black drum can still be picked on clams and cut bunker by those willing to put in some time. The lack of bait and cool water temperatures are to blame for the slower bite right now. Fluke fishing in the bay…

The keeper-plus size bass that were along most of our beaches out front gorging themselves on clams and cut bunker have thinned out a bit, they are still around both on day and night tides for those willing to put in a little time. Fluke fishing in the bay has been good. The usual spots…
