The first ten days in June have lived up to their reputation. The first ten days historically are some of the best fishing days of the year. The weakfish bite has been the best in years. The average size is 4.5 to 7 pounds. The Drum fish bite this May was phenomenal, limit trips were common. The excellent Drum fishing is now continuing into June. The back bay summer flounder bite has been producing some limit catches. Mako shark fishing is on. During the South Jersey Shark tournament the sport fishing boat Relentless caught the heaviest Mako 338 pounds. Contestants boated 114 makos. 169 blue sharks, 21 threshers, 1 dusky and 13 brown sharks. Looks like one of the most action packed South Jersey shark tournaments, considering there was only 97 boats in the tournament. That tournament is one good reason to own a Jersey style offshore fishing boat. The fishing pressure is usually very light weekdays in June. Now is the time!
