Seaside Heights
Five- to 8-pound blues were knocked around from the dock, said George from The Dock Outfitters. Crabs began to be nabbed from the dock, and surf anglers mostly dragged in blues, a couple of striped bass between. The blues weighed up to 16 pounds all week, and were walloped on bunker chunks. Blues probably schooled Manasquan Inlet, and fluke probably swam the inlet. George mentioned them previously, saw them caught, but hadn’t been back to the inlet recently. The blues then ran the inlet at dusk and dawn. Fluke season will be opened beginning Friday, and besides being hooked at the inlet, many were landed in Barnegat Bay behind Island Beach State Park, while anglers waded for blues and stripers, fishing plugs. The shop is stocking the Double-O Fluke Rig, and anglers might be unaware about the rig. Killies will be stocked for fluke bait on Saturday. Baits stocked include fresh bunker, fresh clams and bloodworms. Check-in catches to enter the free tournament awarding a $50 gift card to the shop each month for the biggest entered that month. The Dock Outfitters, located on Barnegat Bay, blocks from the ocean surf, features a bait and tackle shop, boat and jet ski rentals, a café and a dock for fishing and crabbing.
