Cape May
Plenty of croakers gathered off Cape May Point, in Cape May Canal and at the Cape May ferry jetty and Higbee’s Beach, said Nick from Hands Too Bait & Tackle. Kingfish swam off the point, and sharks haunted there and the surf. Dusky, sandbar and sand tiger sharks, all required to be released, roamed the waters, and were a blast. A chunk of mackerel on a large hook on a 2-foot, wire leader clocked them. A couple of anglers headed for summer flounder on Delaware Bay, but nothing was heard back yet. Ocean reefs held flounder, and that fishing seemed to improve. Striped bass began to bite in back waters again, like along bridges at night, once the new-moon current slowed. Thin-profiled lures on jigs caught them, and Berkeley sand eels worked well on them and also flounder. Peanut bunker and mullet began to be heard about from back waters more than before. Blackfish and triggerfish loitered along jetties and inshore reefs, and green crabs are stocked for blackfish bait, now that one of the tautog became the bag limit starting July 17. Blackfish season was closed previously.
