Baitfish

Grass shrimp found inside  a 20" summer flounder

Grass shrimp found inside a 20″ summer flounder

It started in  May  with millions of spearing. I noticed them  being pushed around the sound by stripers , bluefish and weakfish. This June I seen the best run of grass shrimp  in a decade , along with a good amount of minnows.  Thus far in the back bays of Cape May County, NJ we have had a good fishing season. The success is linked directly to the presents of the bait. Hopefully the bait will hold into  the fall.  In this area red drum and speckled trout usually show up in the fall of the year. However, Kayak Bruce caught the first Jersey red drum  this season in June. The first Jersey speckled trout has been caught also,  by an Avalon sharp. Maybe this is a good indicator for the upcoming fall season?
