Seaside Heights
Big blues assaulted the surf, and small to keeper striped bass were in the mix, a report said on The Dock Outfitters’ website. This was no time for light rods, because the blues weighed up to 16 pounds and heavier. Bait-fishers dunked cut bait and clams, and anglers fishing artificials threw metal, swimming lures and popping plugs. Remove front hooks when fishing for large blues. The fish will almost always get hooked on the rear hook, and the front hook will swing wildly when you try to unhook the fish. In Barnegat Bay, small to medium-sized blues swam usual spots, and small stripers bit along bridges at night. 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 and jet-ski rentals.
