Here is this week's report:
Blowfish are the fish of choice here! Still large quantities, good size to them and still at Research Buoy, the BI Buoy, on the west side of the bay in the sedges, in Highbar Harbor, and even off the bulkhead. A young angler has been dropping a chumpot off the bulkhead in Waretown and picking up 50 in a clip! Big kingfish are being caught-bigger than anyone has seen in a while. The same story with the weakfish. There are quantities in the bay and in the ocean.
At Garden State North tautog are being picked up, large sea bass are there as well and sharks have been sited too. Still picking up crabs in Oyster Creek.
