Oceans East Fishing Report
Great fishing continues! All up and down the beach and in the sound the DRUM bite has been on fire. Inshore boats are catching lots of keeper size DRUM, TROUT, FLOUNDER, SEA MULLET, and SHEPSHEAD. Piers are catching BLUEFISH, SPANISH MACKEREL, SPOT, CROAKER, SEA MULLET, SHEEPSHEAD and the occasional COBIA or KING MACKEREL. I have heard that they've been seeing schools of TARPON around the piers too, but no catches yet. Offshore remains good with TUNA and lots of MAHI the last couple of days. Still alot of BILLFISH being caught as well.
Pictured is George Etheridge with a NICE DRUM on his brand new Penn combo we set him up with, Loreigh Akers has been putting the boys to shame with the DRUM she has been catching! two photos of her fishing with Grant Tate. Matt came in and grabbed some bait and went straight to the beach and got him one too! Marcus was just shy of a citation for this TRIGGEFISH.
