6.13.17 Fishing Report

We have been experiencing some of the best June fishing that we have seen in the past few years. I can honestly say that the last time I saw this many fish was back in the late 90's to early 2000's. What is also nice is the different size classes of fish that are around. Fish from 10 inches up to over 40 inches Can be found in and around the river and beaches.

Depending on what you are looking to do I.e. catch a pile of fish or target Larger fish will depend on how you should be fishing. If you are looking for fast action find the Terns, and use small soft plastics like the Hogy Pro Tail 4" or Ron-Z's. Thankfully the bass have not keyed in on a specific color so stick with the perennial favorites. Larger fish have been keyed in on the river herring and pogies. Throw larger baits in the 7-10" range. Live lining mackerel and river herring is always a viable option as well.

Sand and Blood worms, clams and chunk mackerel have been hot off of the beaches. There has also been some bluefish running around the beaches, so keep some wire leader handy and a topwater popper as well.

Good Luck!
