This week shaped up to be quite fishy! From inshore reefs to the edge, there was a lot of catching going on!
Local striped bass anglers are still chipping away at good fish on our local reefs, specifically fishing with eels. These luck folks got into this nice 35 pound bass doing just that on Monday morning.
The seabass bite is still molten hot, but some of the fish have left the “shallows” as of lately. While last week had the fish in 40′-60′, I would suggest trying 60′-80′ now. Our local sharps are having incredible luck with the Savage Squish Jig, specifically the lighter models to 100 grams.
One of our customers found a deep water stranger hanging around the grounds this week in the form of a keeper sized cod fish!
Fluke have begun to move inshore a bit, but it seems to be feast or famine as of now. Those catching are still doing will with the Gulp! and strip bait combo.
We have some new fluke killers headed into the shop just in time for Fluke Fest ’19! They have been responsible for some MASSIVE fish lately so we had to get them in the shop! Welcome M3 tackle to the BHO arsenal!
Offshore straight up went OFF this week. BHO ambassador and friend Mike Prete and crew but a whoopin on most of the pelagic species in our water! Yellow fin, blue fin, mahi, and big Eye all took turns eating mostly bars on their most recent trip. A two boat canyon run early season is a good way to find fish as there are little reports and boat traffic early in the season. Captain Steve Sorrentino and Captain Mike Luzzi put Mike and company on the meat! just look!
