Jersey Shore - Sandy Hook to Island Beach State Park

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Look for bunker and signs of blues or bass around or underneath them. Get ready to toss some big flies, like Popovic's Hollow-Fleyes, to entice the big fish to eat. From the beach try sinking lines and give a Clouser a shot for summer flounder.

Seven-day forecast 

Today is July 10th. There's been a mix of weather and wind and as of late. Fishing is better with the west wind or when the wind shifts to north-northeast. Striper fishing all around is a slow pick, so bring your Clousers and have fun with the fluke that can be caught off the beach along the rocks.

Conditions 

Early summer season is now here at the Jersey Shore. That means, usually, striped bass bluefish, and fluke. This spring bluefish were up and down the coast in both big numbers and size. Bass remain scarce and anglers are finding numbers way down along the East Coast. Fluke season has started and are always a fun option along the beach on the fly rod.
