ISLAND BEACH STATE PARK REPORT



THIS REPORT IS FOR ISLAND BEACH STATE PARK AND THE SURROUNDING AREAS.






5/25/17 UPDATED 6:11 AM Rain...every day.

Yesterday's Report: UPDATED 1:09 PM Just had another angler come back to the shop and reload bunker. He had 10 big blues, most on bunker, but a couple of polaris poppers. These pictured are made by a local guy. Cast great, push a lot of water, reasonable.

UPDATED 12:03 PM B&N regular Greg Haines just weighed in a nice 14 pound bluefish, had several others, saw several others caught, and saw some bass caught as well. He also said there was birds working and bait in close. Now, of course I don't know anything about fishing(just ask anyone), but with the 5 days of northeast wind, you would figure that any bunker that was here would be all offshore. So the fact that there's bait near the beach would say to me one of 2 things, 1, it's not bunker, or 2, there's a lot of pressure on the bunker pushing it towards the beach.

UPDATED 7:43 AM Although this is the worst Spring weatherwise since I have been doing this seriously since 1994, the fishing is getting really good again. Lots of blues yesterday afternoon in the 9 pound range and a really nice 16 pound bass as well. Conditions are perfect for today as you will see from the videos. Fisherman will once again have the beaches to themselves.
