Well Dads day out with pop produced..... 0 yep 0. Actually we were out from 6am till 9:30 trolling from BI north, and then again past the inlet south. On our way south birds started working right outside the inlet. Before you knew it there were 75 boats there. It was actually kinda comical as instead of fishing we watched. Between the bennies ripping right through the birds, and all the boats trying to follow the birds, it was kinda funny to watch as the birds scattered and then all the boats moved all over again. TIP... when birds are working, come up slow, or stay outside the area and let them come to you. Happys pops day everyone anyway, it was fun.

Got out for the first time this year on the boat since my daugter was born. Fished the causeway at the last of the high tide. caught 1 short bass and 1 15.5" fluke both on clam. It was great to get out.

Fished ludlam Saturday morning. Fluke were hitting everything. Minnows, mackeral and gulp shrimp. 10 throw backs and 4 keepers.
Sunday was a slow morning with 7 throw backs and one keeper. I was surprized that I did not catch any blues.

Here's a shot of a couple of late spring fish that were hanging out together in the South Jersey Backbays that my good friend Ron (BassCharger)fooled with the go-to Blurple Bomber.


32"/8.7lb Weakfish & 29"/8.3lb Striper.

The water was alive with surface action during the late night out-going tide and the night included some other hits & misses with smaller fish aswell.

Good Job Ronny,

Got the slam and then some last night! Started out behind WWC with three throw back Flatties at the beginning of the outgoing on the Gulp Shrimp. Switched to some top water poppin and landed two bass to about 22". Made another move and we got into the weakies using pinkies and white Gulp shrimp, 10 trout to 21". Also landed three small blues, two keeper flatties to 19" and several shad which decided to take over after an awesome night. I'm heading back out now ;) Sorry no pics, batteries died but I can't complain.

Fished in back last night for 4 hours around the
bottom of the tide in the O.C. area. Man did it
suck! I took the skunk...this time last year
there were peanuts everywhere with bass all over
them. Hopefully, it's not too late! The water
felt awefully cool for the end of June???

New to the barn, been reading everything I can find on tactics etc. Caught a 42" Stiper on a friends boat out in the rips last Nov. and that got me hooked on ocean fishing, previously into Steelhead and Salmon in upstate NY.
Got the fish mounted, bought a 97, 19' Seaswirl Stiper 1850dc, see my url, took the boating coarse & passed.

Been out on my and on my friends boat the last two Sundays in bays behind Wildwood out of Cape May Harbor.
Threw everything posted here at them and got one short flat was all last week, one keeper flaty the Sunday before.
Been mostly fishing middle of the day.
Seems from many of the posts that the best fishing is early morning, evening and night and seeing guys posting hitting fish on all tides even slack low. Does the boat traffic shut them down?
We mix our rigs and baits up trying fish finders w clam/squid, clam/minnow, while they are out I am throwing Gulp shrimp in Penny & Natural on 1/2 or so jig heads working channels, feeder creeks, drops, sod banks on outgoing, not much luck.
I think we are rigged right just not working the right places at the right times in the back bays of Wildwood.
Hoping to get some smaller ocean waves soon to go out in the ocean more, not so comfortable yet in 2-4's with a 19 ft. boat.
So I am starting to think we arent doing something right, wrong times, wrong places?
I tried all I can think of and seen posted except fishing early AM and nights but starting to think that is the way to go?
Any and all tips appreciated.

Welcome to the barn Papabear! Your be addicted to this site, believe me....Keep on doing what your doing, eventually you'll find what works best for you. Use a white bucktail for flounder with a piece of mackerel or herring, thats it! Put out a rod with a single gold hook with just a big fat minnow while your bucktailing! Try and get out early in the morning to beat the yahoos. May is the best month for backbay flounder fishing. Its gonna start switching to ocean fishing real soon. Hit the reefs they are within your reach, only a few miles of the beach. Good luck and keep reading.......

Thanks for the welcome, seems like a great group of people here. I am new to the boating in the ocean part too. My buddy can't fish as often as I can and I don't want to go out alone in my boat too much just yet, especially at night.
Maybe I will find a few of you decent folk to fish with at times, show me some of the ropes.

Thanks for the tips. I have fished for 30+ years almost all freshwater and love the steelhead fishing in NY too. But the ocean and never knowing what will bite is awesome imho.
I think I have to learn more about fish movements at different times of the year for one thing, but reading some of the posts it looks like even the most experienced get skunked at times too.
I bought a south Jersey chart that covers the oceans and shows a few wrecks. I have an old timers Loran hot sheet he created over the his many years. I am just taking my time getting used to going out into the ocean as I said I only have a 19 footer and dont know what it can and cant do in what kind of weather and waves yet either.
With folks like you and the Barn I am off to a good start I think.
Thanks again!
Frank
