ISLAND BEACH STATE PARK REPORT
THIS REPORT IS FOR ISLAND BEACH STATE PARK AND THE SURROUNDING AREAS.
THE TACKLE SHOP IS NOW OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK FROM 4:30 AM UNTIL CLOSE WHICH IS 7 PM WEEKDAYS, 10 PM WEEKENDS.
5/23/13 UPDATED 1:26 PM Sorry for the late report. Nice, sunny day, but very windy out of the south. Seems to be dirtying up the water a bit. Not a lot of
anglers out there today. I guess the south winds and predictions of thunderstorms have scared people away. Lotto big fish caught up north yesterday and another
40 plus pound bass taken on bunker of IBSP.
Yesterday's Report: UPDATED 5:43 PM Just had our biggest bass of the year at the shop weighed in, a 26 1/4 pound on bunker chunks. The closer we get to Memorial Day, the
bigger the fish get and you can sense the slaughter coming. Tom Segear of Somerset, NJ weighed in this beauty and there was bunker jumping everywhere right
on the beach.
UPDATED 2:30 PM Just had 3 keeper bass hit the scale. Jeff White, whose hook broke on the monster bass in the wash the other day, said he was landing
one bass after another around the middle of IBSP on clams. He left them biting. The incoming tide has them running good right now.
UPDATED 9:29 AM Perfect fishing day. Cloudy and calm with just a little whitewater. Just had the shop's biggest bass of the year weighed in about 10
minutes before I started writing this report. Mike Chamberlain of New Egypt landed a fat 21 pounder on clams. He had other fish and said the bite was real good
about an hour before and after dead high this morning, then it stopped. We had a 16 pound bass weighed in yesterday along with some good bluefish action at the
south end of the island on Atom poppers mid afternoon.
