Fluke season ends on the 27th so there is only a few days left. Bucktails and gulp with a teaser could get yo dinner off the surf. Plenty of blues out there as well.

Blues hitting mullet, bunker chunks, metals including Hopkins, Gators, and AOK's and swimmers swimmers including SP Minnows, Baker Lures and Bombers. So in other words pretty much anything you throw out there. We will be getting in a new delivery of AOK's today including Steve's Stealth T-Hex for you night guys. Plenty of Fluke in the surf and Short Bass on poppers before dark is another option.

Blowfish in the back with chum logs and blowfish rigs "Near" the BB and BI. Short Bass on poppers before dark in the Berkeley Island Park area is picking up as well.

If you got threw the grass on the surf yesterday you had Blues. Short Bass on poppers before dark "Again" was the ticket. Keeper Fluke reported yesterday but the grass was heavy fishing the bottom. If you want some action on poppers try the river and bay before dark or at first light.

Metal was the way to go yesterday to cut the wind in the surf for those small Blues which were there. Short Bass up to 26 inches and Blues are being picked up in the back behind IBSP and on the opposite side around the Cedar Creek area on poppers. We have Fresh Clams, Fresh Mullet and fresh Bunker came in last night.

We got in a delivery of the new Gibbs Pro Series Pencil Poppers and Dannies (with eyes) in 1 1/2 and 2 oz. We also got in some Penn Battalion Rods in sizes 8', 9' 10' and 11'. These are pretty nice and very affordable with all 4 sizes being priced under $100 for those looking for a rod for the fall.

There are some cocktail sized Blues roaming the Toms River river taking small metals and poppers as well as cut bunker and fresh mullet. There are still some crabs around but you have to work for them unless you have overnight pots.

Plenty of Blues out there yesterday chasing mullet and for those who targeted them cashed in. Gonna be a little windy today coming out of the East so you might want to bring some metal.

Anglers were lined up at Huddy Park yesterday getting in on the snapper bite. Crabbing was a little slow again yesterday.

Murphy's and Go Fish Bait & Tackle will now be stocking Choopy Lures. Charlie, founder of Choopy Lures has been building custom wooden plugs for over 15 years and we will be stocking his product in both shops. Charlie is a local and anglers fishing the shoreline of NJ and the Northeast put his plugs to the test. The fish and fellow fisherman approved. We should be getting our first delivery of Needlefish in about 2 weeks and the Metal Lip Swimmers will follow. We will post pictures of sizes and prices as they arrive. These Needlefish and swimmers are a must have in the plug bag for the fall Bass run.
