Fishing in the inlet area is producing small bluefish and small stripers on soft plastics or poppers, but we are still waiting for the fall run to materialize. Bayside is still producing spot at a slower pace and blowfish.
I was able to get out with my father for a nearshore trip to an area between the Mud hole and Glory hole - NOAA definitely botched the forecast that morning, but we still made the 38 mile run out in choppy seas. We ended the day with a nice 35in mahi-mahi (picture attached) that went for a live-spot. We also had a tuna on for 15 minutes, but lost him when the hook popped. A 8-9ft blue shark came into our slick and proceeded to try to taste the swim platform and engine.
