The surf became lots more fishable Friday than in previous days, a report said on The Dock Outfitters’ website. That was after last week’s offshore hurricane. Fluke and snapper blues bit in the water during daytime. At night, sharks and rays chomped in the surf. For the fluke, tie on a ¾- to 1-ounce bucktail with a Gulp swimming mullet. Two fluke 16 inches or larger is the bag limit at Island Beach State Park’s surf, compared with three fluke at 18 inches in most of the rest of the state. In Barnegat Bay, plenty of snappers schooled, and crabbing was slow. 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, boat rentals and jet-ski rentals.
