Jersey Shore - Sandy Hook to Island Beach State Park

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Remember to try offerings in all levels of the water column, top, middle, bottom. Water temps are still low so the fish aren't always ready to leap.

Seven-day forecast 

There's some big fish out there, 30's, 40's and 50's on the fly!!!!! Not so many on the beach- try start thinking like a lazy nosing fish if youre fishing from the shore. Crab patterns in the trough will get the bass and the fluke.

Conditions 

It's the start of summer on the Jersey Shore. The weather has been up and down and so has the fishing. Striped bass have been moving through in waves and not many are sticking around either due to a migration pattern change, bait availability, or structural changes along the Jersey Shore due to beach replenishment. Bluefish have been thick and the fluke season opened this week.
