Most of the Barnegat Light boats will sail for the Mac Attack, assuming the fish come in range. Depends on wind, water temp, and how close behind the bluefish are, but we usually see about a week of good fishing one of the middle two weeks in April. Keep an eye on Cape May reports, as they usually are 1-3 weeks ahead of the LBI boats. Miss BL, Doris Mae, Miss LBI, and Carolyn Ann all sail for the tiny tuna, often switching to wreck fishing once patrons have a coolerful. Bring a baitcaster and some small jigs for fun after the barrel is full!
