Fishing Report 7/21/19

Written on: July 21st, 2019 in Fishing Report

Dave, Kerry and Dustin Wolf of Reading, PA caught this 371.4lb thresher shark was caught out at B-buoy using bunker.

We hope everyone is surviving this final day of the dangerous heat wave. The marina and the DSSP beaches have been pretty empty.


Offshore boats landed some nice sized gaffers, plenty of tilefish, and some scattered wahoo.

The tuna headed out for cooler, deeper water. We’re hoping the cool front Monday and Tuesday will bring them back.


Inshore reports of flounder, bluefish, and a couple nice cobias.

KUDOS to all the brave anglers that could stand the heat and finished the Paradise Bay flounder fishing tournament. We can’t wait to hear the results.
