As far as the fishing goes, the bass bite in the surf is very good right now. Clams have been the #1 bait but for those who want to throw lures bucktails and SP Minnows have been working. There are no particular hotspots and while the bass seem to be all over, they are not everywhere. If you hit the beach and a spot looks promising, but doesn’t produce anything in 30 to 45 minutes, make a move. Sometimes just a mile or two down the beach is all you need to do.
The back bay is still producing smaller fish. Small rubber shads like the small Keitechs, 3 inch NLBNs, 4 inch DieZel Minnowz, and small Vudu shads are working. The 6 inch sluggos are also claiming some fish.
Here are some recent catches:
Mickey on the fish. All on clams.
Our very own @wefish138 got out at night with @david_eurell and some clams and got into a bunch of fish last night. David had the biggest while Scott had the high hook Clams where the ticket. We are not sure what professional model pose David is attempting with that fish. At least we are hoping that is a professional model pose...
That didn’t take long for @dylan_hall19. He picked up some fresh shucked clams and quickly landed this beautiful 35” Bass.
Congrats to @the_incredible_volk on this beautiful Surf Bass that taped out at 45”. Caught on a clam.
Our first bluefish report of the Spring! Adien reported a small cocktail bluefish on a mullet rig from the surf.
@johnjohn_ with a Surf Brute!
Fran and Joe Hettler with a pair of bass up to 30” and 8.9 lbs. They reported good action on…you guessed it: clams.
It’s 4/20. If you know, you know. Based on the what we are seeing below, Ray and Sean know…
