Fishing was heating up, and slammer blues and keeper striped bass were dragged from the surf last week, a report said on The Dock Outfitters’ website. Not a blitz, but a good sign that fall fishing was coming. More and more baitfish migrated to the surf from bays, attracting fish. Popper lures, swimming plugs, bucktails and metal will catch this time of year. Fresh mullet, fresh clams, sandworms and all frozen baits were stocked. “So whatever your pleasure, we can hook you up,” it said. Some keeper fluke 18 to 20 inches were hung from the surf, but fluke season was closed beginning today. The Dock Outfitters, located on Barnegat Bay, blocks from the ocean surf, features a bait and tackle shop, a café, a dock for fishing and crabbing and, in season, boat rentals and jet-ski rentals.
