Sterling Harbor bait and tackle 7-27

Fishing in Southern Jersey is at its summertime peak right now! Flounder fishing is excellent. Flounder are still being caught in the back bays, but are moving towards the inlets as ocean water temps warm. Mike Woertz of Runnemede, NJ checked in with a 7 pound 12 ounce flounder caught on a Spro Bucktail near Grassy Sound. Good reports came from the Wildwood Reef late in the week. Bill Stewart and crew of Swedesboro, NJ had a good catch of Flounder both Friday and Saturday at the Wildwood Reef with fish up to 5 pounds. Good Fluke catches have also been reported from the Cape May Reef, Reef Site 11 and the Old Grounds. Suzanne and Ken Smith Philadelphia, PA and Scott Pierce of Drexel Hill, PA reported 15 keeper flounder up to 6 pounds while drifting Reef Site 11 on Sue and KenÂ?s boat Tuna Chic. Suzanne also boated a 20 pound mahi-mahi from Reef Site 11 while flounder fishing! Offshore fishing has been great with white marlin, yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna and mahi-mahi being caught in and around the canyons while trolling, jigging and chunking. There was a good big-eye tuna bite in the Wilmington Canyon late in the week. Ken Freeman and crew of Upper Black Eddy, PA had four bluefin tuna to 90 pounds while chunking sardines at the Hambone on KenÂ?s boat Â?Quality Time IIÂ? out of Wildwood. Jamie Neill of Rio Grande, NJ landed his first ever bluefin tuna while jigging at Massey Canyon on Tuna Chic out of Wildwood and the crew reported six more bluefin and two mahi-mahi while trolling and jigging. Joe Cannon of Boyertown, PA reported a big white marlin caught while trolling the Wilmington Canyon on Joe GillenÂ?s boat Â?Y-KnotÂ? out of Wildwood. Surf fishing has picked up @ Sunset beach in Cape May and at the north end of Wildwood with kingfish and croakers being caught. Crabby Jack gives the crabbing 4 Claws this week!
