All anglers fishing in saltwater over the age of 16 need to register for the free saltwater fishing license in NJ. However, any person fishing on a party/charter boat DOES NOT need a license as they are covered under the captains license. The fines for not having this FREE license are STEEP and start at $300 for the first offense. I know this is absurd and there is a movement to lower them but be safe and make sure you have it. They ARE enforcing it. It takes three minutes to get the license. Here is the link to register:

The past two nights Captain Zig of First Fish Adventures has taken a couple of nice stripers on clam in the cricks behind Sea Isle. Captain Joe Hughes of
guide Service has been landing nice stripers on top water plugs. The Bigger stripers are biting in the surf on hole clam with the occasional puppy black drum. I have herd reports of a week fish or to being taken in the back water also. The flounder fishing continues to get better with every passing day. The report of the week is the TUNA are biting. From what I have herd there are a couple of hot spots of water in the canyons where there have been yellow fins and mahi-mahis taken. For up to the minute reports give us a call 609-253-4575 We are open 6-6 longer on the week ends. To contact Captain Joe 609-827-3442. To contact Captain Zig 609-602-9004. Jersey Cape

Getting some good reports about the stripers in the surf and even a couple of puppy drum mixed in most bites have bin on clams. The bass in the back bay have bin hitting clams also but some are being caught on top water plugs on the out going tide. Fresh clams will be in to day and we will have a bunch of new inventory for the week end.
