Old Inlet Bait & Tackle Fishing Report

Updated: June 29th, 2015 @ 2:08pm
Windy rainy weekend. But.... July 4th Week is here. Let the insanity begin! A couple of stripers on the scales recently - Don Jackson weighed a 11lb 8oz striper on 6/26 caught in the Inlet on an eel. Jacob Bubb weighed a 8.5lb striper caught in the Inlet on 6/28 on a Storm lure. Its not fast and furious but there are some fish around if you want to work for them. Then again right place right time works too! June 26- We interrupt a busy start to the summer season to bring you a quick update the fishing report: The croakers have moved in to the Inlet. Hitting squid and bloodworms. They are picking at them. Not a blitz. Reports of flounder in the Inlet as well. On lead head with Gulp and the usual squid and minnows. Striper bite is at night on fleas and eels. Mostly shorts with the occasional nice one in the mix. Flounder fishing on the Old Grounds and Reef Site 10 has been really good. They are using Spro bucktails with a long squid strip. Yellowfins in the Baltimore Canyon along with gaffer dolphin. White marlin bite in the Washington. Had a report of a gaffer dolphin at B Buoy! June 15 - Father's Day weekend is almost here. The kiddies will be out of school. Summer is here! Surf is a mixed bag of croakers, kings and snapper blues. Frozen mullet, fresh cut bunker, real and/or fake bloodworms should be in your bait box. Snapper blues, short stripers and the occasional flounder in the Inlet during the day. Picking at a few keeper stripers at night on bucktails and eels. Best flounder fishing is in 80 feet of water southeast of B Buoy. Doormat flounder reported. New regulations in effect! Effective May 11, 2015, Striped Bass regulations for 2015: 2 fish per day. Length: 28" to 37" or more than 44". The summer regulation for the Bay estuary is now 20"-25" The short version is that there is a NO TAKE slot from 38" to 43". Any striped Bass caught in that size cannot be kept. This is a maximum of 2 fish per day, not 2 fish per size range. Notice - Tautog season closes May 11 and will remain closed through July 16.
