    A buddy of mine fished there on Sat, he got 6 blues up to 6lbs, a couple of short bass at 24"s and two Searobins. He was fishing from the surf.

    I was there Saturday and would consider trip a waste of time. There were ALOT of boats out and it was my first weekend trip an about ten years. Don't think I'll do that again either. We caught some blues but they were not there in any kind of numbers. The talk on the VHF all day was the same "Anybody catching anything?" Even got the homer simpson "Boooooring" once. I did'nt see much bait, no bird activity, and not many fish. The blues that were caught were decent 10#'s or so. Just not enough to make me go back. I have gotten a little spoiled over the years though. If I don't catch atleast 50 fish I don't consider it a very good day. The water temps were from 53-55 which is still a little cool for the like of bluefish. Didn't see or here of a striper caught all day. Ran the boat probably 40 miles looking for action to no avail. Kinda what I have come to expect from Jersey fishing over the past 5 years. CT will turn on in the next few weeks and thats where I'll be until July when the large stripers are on the cape.

    Hope that helps...

    They may be in by Wed. Temps are pretty warm this week. Might be easier without 10,000 other boats out there too

    Almost went to the hook saturday, we picked Barnegat Bay instead. Ran a mile north on the Ocean side of IBSP. Found acres of 10-15lb blues working bait on top. Insane popper action!
