Cape May
The northern bay toward Miah Maul and Fortescue seemed to fish best for summer flounder, said Nick from Hands Too Bait & Tackle. Not much was heard about flounder from the bay near Cape May, the southern bay. Most customers who fished for flounder worked the ocean, and catches were good there at Reef 11 and the Old Grounds. Cape May Reef on the ocean also turned out some. On the bay, decent-sized croakers were yanked-in near Bug Light. Surf anglers hit the croakers at the concrete ship. Blackfish were boated along the rocks at Brandywine on the bay, and were cranked up along the jetties at Calpe May Inlet. Snapper bluefish swarmed around Cape May Point. Sand tiger sharks, required to be released, haunted the surf at night. Mullet started to be seen in the surf, so anglers might keep an eye out for early season striped bass in the water that might feed on them. Other baitfish, including lots of peanut bunker, filled the back bay. The baitfish will pour into the ocean this fall, feeding the migration of stripers and blues. Minnows, fresh clams, jumbo and regular-sized bloodworms, and green crabs are stocked.
