Last saturday we did our first shark trip of the year out of Barnegat. Found the makos but the water temps were very low (54),and they were not agressive at all. Missed 2 hookups. They were mouthing the baits very lightly. Best hit of the day was on one of the floats We'll be at it again on friday
Just read the fish reports on BayPark fishing station.The first mako on the south shore of L.I. was brought in late Sunday afternoon.It was a 192 lb mako,taken on a bluefish fillet near the Texas Tower.Things should start heating up just in time for the tournaments.
Fished 35 miles SE of Moriches inlet on Sunday in 58 degree water for 6 blue sharks with some pushing 200 lbs plus. Loads of bluefish everywhere. good to hear about the first Mako. Good Luck to everyone.
