Small blues on the surf and in the Inlet. Still a few croakers and short flounder around.

Night time bite for stripers. A few more keepers in the mix. The migration is still north of us in upper Jersey.

Live eels ate the best bait in the Inlet at night.

Flounder fishing is still good on the Old Grounds and Site 10. When the wind does not blow to hard to get. Those days are rare lately.

Fresh bait getting tough to come by. Looking for it daily. Not much luck.

The mullet run was late this year and the front that just moved through seems to have pushed them south.

Cold rainy weekend in the rear view mirror. Nice fall weather in the forecast.

Less than optimal weather did not stop the anglers in the DMS Surf Fishing Tournament. Conditions were tough but those that braved the weather found small blues and kingfish on the beach.
