Outstanding Surf Fishing for King Fish

Just returned from a week vacation at the beach (Sea Isle). We surf fished on 3 different days for about 3 hrs each time. My son and I had a total of 76 king fish. I talked to some older guys who live there and they said this is as good as they could ever remember. Blood worms, fish bites and chunks of clam all worked but blood worms were the best for us. These fish a delicious.

Also fished the back bay for flounder 3 times for a few hours each time. We caught a lot of small flounder with a lot of 16-17.5" throwbacks but we managed 7 keepers to 25". Enjoyed the week with the family.

Sounds like a great week at the shore.

Fishing like that spoils you. I love Canada fishing but it take me a month or two to recover from depression when I come back with PA fishing.

Yes it does. We didn't catch many last year and we were down the same week. It's special it when it all comes together.

Great report Whaler!! Been at Chincoteague last 2 weeks mostly crabbing but did a lil flounder drifting. Best day out put 4 in box. My one friend had s dozen keepers in his 3 days on water. Crabbing steady with a good percentage throwbacks. Yesterday repowered my Lund with a new Suzuki. Heading out tomorrow to some new crabbing grounds for some fun.

In Florida you are probably talking about King Mackerel. In Jersey we're talking Kingfish, which are in the drum family. Two totally different critters.

That's what I was thinking. Had to google them. They look like they may be tasty
