LBI tons of small snapper blues in the surf. 3 fish to a mullet. Caught a 4' brown shark too. Water still almost 70%.

Got out Monday evening just before high tide in the ENE blow. Water looked good. Produced 4 hits, and caught one short. All of the action happened right at the lil and with the wave action it was difficult to set the hook. Oh well, next time.

I'm mid-island and there is such a large sandbar in close that I have been fishing low tide, where I normally prefer high tide. At high tide the water is only around 2 feet deep (or less) out to casting distance.

At low tide you can literally walk out an additional 80 yards and get to some deeper water.

I'm hoping the storm might mix thing up a bit.

I only used them once, with no success, but do know of a guide out of Stone Harbor who uses them successfully for both sheeps and tog (assuming you mean the tidaltail ...or similar... blackfish jigs)


I do have them but have much success with regular blackfish home tied rigs that I don't have much incentive to switch.

Out front Ocean County around 2pm, first ten casts landed a 23? bass on a white bucktail, stayed another 3 hrs and not even a hit. Threw the bag. Birds were working up and down the beach but were diving further out. Water was pretty stained.

Out today from 4-8, big blues made a appearance, in and out fast. Seen a few caught, I dropped one I caught one short bass on one of my teasers wind was cranking 15-20 and the water was youhoo . The water is still warm, a week of cooler temps ought to cool the water down a bit.

Water temp is still 70

Just hooked into the biggest shark of my life, took a bunker head, 20 minute + battle only to get it to the wash, ft of water and break off. Easy 4' dorsal to tail, tail looked to be a ft

70+ lbs

Arms are aching.

Later...
