    Tuna just now showing up, but it's still hard to predict, same as sails and dorado, we focus on the amberjack, and other target species that are still in season, such as swordfish, and Mangrove, vermillion snapper, always hope for the fish of a lifetime! Looking to book for some overnight trips for yellowfin and marlin 100+ miles offshore.

    The amberjack bite has been on fire as well as Almaco Jacks, Triggerfish are running small so hooking up with a keeper trigger has been a chore! Plenty of Vermillion snapper and Porgy's around though. Trolling has been hit or miss, depending on the current some days we catch 6 and some days they aren't hitting! The blackfin are on the move as the water temp starts to drop they are moving closer inside of state waters! King mackerel have been the main ones we have been hooking up with on the shotgun trolling! Red snapper are everywhere but out of season for us!

Fishing report from Frank B. in Stone Harbor, New Jersey.

    Not really doing a whole lot at this time with school back in session. We were out this past Saturday and mugged up on nice flounder. We were throwing back over sized fish, which was painful. The key was making short drifts over the structure and working it hard. When the bite stops, hit the next piece. The fluke have turned on just in time for them to go out of season on the 27th. The back bays are alive with peanut bunker, spearing, and some mullet. When you can get anything to actually bite there are stripers and weakies around. Small blues too. But the bite is very spotty with all the bait. But worth the effort. Fun times are ahead. Sea bass will be opening soon. And tog is just around the corner. As are the stripers. Come on Fall!

    The weather this time of the year is very moody but the fish are still biting there’s plenty of vermilion snapper and white snapper to be found and the deep water grouper and tile fish doing pretty good as well and the tuna fishing is about to get red hot

    The spanish mackerel , jack crevalle, and mangrove snapper have been caught inshore and a slight cool front just cooled the Temps down for us. We've caught big amberjack, mingos and Spanish mackerel offshore as well!

    Late summer/early fall fishing is starting to heat up. Getting a weather window to make the trip out has been a challenge. However, when able to get offshore, we are catching a variety of species with the second half of trigger fish season open and now Amberjack opening back, I expect a lot of great offshore catches over the next few weeks. Deep drop fishing for vermillion snapper, porgies, and various grouper species has been on fire. For those who like our top water action, the waters have been boiling with skipjacks and Mahi. Now is the time to get out there and catch them up before they move out to their winter waters.
