FL Fisherman,

My last trip was a week ago, but that was to OCMD. Caught a billion small croaker, a short flounder and a nice puppy(my first black drum, darn tasty) aboard neuman/zooms boat. I will be out again this weekend, probably on my boat. Not sure where I'm going yet. Most of the flounder have moved out of the back waters. It seems the best bet is some croaker fishing down in DE or MD until the water temps cool. The stripers and larger blues will be back soon. Toggies too.

Croaker were being reported off of Cape May Point last week (per Jim's Bait and Tackle). They also told me that people were picking up weakies under the bridges at night. Bluefish were at the half bridge on the way to Stone Harbor.

I stuck to the inlets on both ends of the wildwoods. Caught some more kingfish from Hereford inlet, nothing doing in the Cape May inlet (50 cent bridge).

Greetings All!

Cold water and crappy weather have combined to make NJ fishing tough. Lots of small croaker being caught in Delaware Bay by South Jersey boats (high hooks with over 60 fish), and a lot of boats are still targeting sea bass. The only good news is the number of large fluke being caught offshore at spots like the Old Grounds or the Cape May Reef. Kingfish are being caught througout the surf.

The weather is supposed to shift to a more seasonal pattern by the end of the week. Whether it will be enough to warm inshore and offshore waters remains to be seen. Maybe if the water doesn't get too warm the stripers and blues will hug the coast this fall on the way south.

Don't worry about next week, Jason. Capt Dave will put us on the fish! Positive thoughts, positive thoughts....
