Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report

Thursday, June 02, 2016: A bit drab but not bad... and fish to be had. TBT Billfish battle.

REPLEN UPDATE (Sorry but I keep getting updated info.) Please bear with me – as I’m going crazy with changeable replenishment info.

I’m now told that Holgate will have a multi-dredge start -- as at least two dredges will be pounding sand there soon.

Here’s the latest: Holgate should begin in the next week or so. The Liberty Island will flip and work south from the pipe landing at Nelson and the Dodge and Padre will work north from a pipe landing at Inlet Ave and then flip and work south to the project limit. After about three weeks the Liberty Island will move to North Beach/SC while the other two finish Holgate.

Obviously, this schedule is still subject to change -- but with the Holgate start so near, this final arrangement seems likely, per ACE.

Thursday, June 02, 2016: A bit drab but not bad. The surf has built rapidly, though the clarity is still excellent. Once again, for tougher surfcasters, this is great water for bassing.  

Here’s a vid-look I sent to the Weather Service at 2:30 p.m. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CZmIEyGCGs

I’m getting only a sprinkling of fishing reports due to the tricky winds for boat fishing and a general drop in angling pressure, partially due to many folks having had their fill of big blues.

Obviously, nobody has had their fill of bass – a "fill" that seldom ever happens. While some savvy casters are doing decently with bass, I still think it’s a bit bass-quiet overall – though not bad, mind you. Bass being kept are showing a typical crab presence in-belly, mainly lady crabs.


The bay and inlet fluking will be a tad snotty all afternoon. Those ENE winds are pushing 15 mph (3 p.m.). They shouldn’t get much higher, though. Winds are going around the the SE for the weekend. Cold front(s) on the way. Sunday could see the stronger frontal passage, kicking up harder SE winds. Still looks decent for fishing from tomorrow into Sunday. Mariners will need to feel out the day -- wind-wise. Forecasting winds are always a tricky call this time of year, especially along the immediate coastline. Again Sunday could get very gusty if that front stays intact. If stalls, winds wont be as hard.  

Winds have blown away the nagging fog we've been having. Could be more by tonight, though. 

Below: Uh ...

Ocean temps are still below normal, which isn’t bad for bass and blues but problematic for larger fluke. Water temps are up – upper 50s to low 60s. That’s the onshore flow influence. 

Need I remind folks that reports like this still come in ... 
Rob CraneWell didnt even get a bite today. Pretty much disgusted. Think im going to give up fishing and take up drinking.
