Island Beach, New Jersey - Saltwater Fishing Report
South of Gillikins

Alot of short Bass today. Little runt sized up to 31 inches and 10.25 lbs. The Blue fish were up to around 5 pounds . I only kept one Bluefish, cocktail sized, which in my opinion are better eating. I think that I had the only keeper on the beach from wher I was fishing down to the inlet.
