What a weekend to fish.

There has been a steady bite of stripers with the occasional black drum.  Even with the shortage of live clams in the Cape May county area people switched over to salted frozen clams and kept on catching.  The kingfish bite in the surf has also been picking up.  The inlet has been producing stripers and drum with the blues showing up.  Blues have been taking spoons with the bait of choice being mullet and mackerel.  In the bay the flounder bite has increased with the warmer water Saturday.  We had several boats with 2 anglers catching up to and above six keepers.  The best bite was in the afternoon with the outgoing tide. The baits of choice have been GULP, live minnows and mackerel.  The stripers in the back bay have been hitting poppers and swimming plugs more consistently with the increased water temp but the people chunking clams are still reporting the best numbers.   There have been many good reports of the drum biting down in the Delaware bay.  If the weather is fit we receive shipments of bait/clams on Tuesday and Friday. If you need bushels of clams, flats of butterfish or cans of chum let us know early and if we have room we can order extra for you (609) 263-6540 or .  Our hours are Monday thru Thursday 5am 7pm,  Friday and Saturday 5am- 9pm and 5 am- 6pm Sunday.
