Fished at one of the well know spots in Tuckerton/Mystic Island last night for the last two hours of light. Trying to redo the success I had Saturday evening in the same spot only this time the word must have gotten out because there were about 20 anglers fishing from the sod banks and 3 boats anchored up. Everyone looking for those elusive tiderunners. Unfortunately, I only saw one weakie caught it was a beauty but I didn't do the catching :(

There were quite a few of the toothy ones caught but it appeared that everyone there was aiming for the weakfish. The one that I saw was caught on a ¼ ounce jig head with a pink fishy.

Hi BB. I was "there" too. Caught 1 about 11lbs. I only saw 1 other caught. Which guy were you. I was on the left of the cut, in the middle. When I left, there were still about 10 people there. I have been doing ok there.

I was on the right of the guy with the kids. I couldn't believe how crowded it was. I was there last Saturday about the same time and there was only like 4 of us. I need to make up a Bass Barn sign and hang it around my neck next time. Maybe people would come up and introduce themselves :D Congrats on the tiderunner. Are you the one who walked back to the road with it in the net over your shoulder?

There is plenty of water in that channel if you come in from the fish factory side, The other side is really shallow at low tide.

Just thought I would check this out. When I did go out on a boat, I went with an ex boyfriend who had his boat in Mystic Islands. It may still be there. It is "Michael Joy". Jack and Mike Steinman own it. Anyone know if it is still there? Also knew Mike and Joy Benfield down there. Mike has since passed away after a motorcyle accident. Anyone know them?

Basically just while the tiderunners are in. Went this am for a few hours. Not a hit. Do not have my boat ready for the water yet. It will go to Del Bay though.

Do you plan on being there at all over the next few days? I could see me making another run soon.

My next boat will probably be a Del Bay boat but the 19' bowrider I have now is much better for the back bays.

If you don't mind saying how were you fishing for them when you were there the other night? I was throwing 1/4 ounce head with a pink finS.

Same. May try a little heavier, depending. Go slooooooooow. Have caught 11 there this year. Still hit and miss. Don't know about the next few days. May be on the bay over the weekend. Tide is good early (outgoing) the next few days also. Maybe in the am, depending on work.

If you looking for BB, just look for a great big guy, thats friendly as all get out. I was out that way this morning, and saw Dolphins in front of the Coast Guard Station. BB should have a picture of one of them by now. Thats all I could get. No luck this morning, try again this afternoon.

George and I went to the Brick Pile, all we caught were skates, and a shark. We headed in early, right before dark. I didn have my spotlight hooked up yet. It will be by next Thursday.
