8/8 Beach Trip

Anyone interested in a beach trip Thursday 8/8? Open to locations.

My plan is to head out of Philly around 2:00 in the afternoon and target fluke or blues. I know the backside of Sandy Hook has some decent wadable flats. Although something closer, like IBSP or LBI could be considered.

Was looking to fish with someone else, so I'm open to suggestions if someone is interested.

look for these to, have been hitting. watch the teeth they will shred you. put up a good fight run like a marlin. Hound fish great on flys. some are over 40 inches.

Sandfly - Best bet to head to IBSP in the surf? I also thinking walking Monmouth Co beachs/jetties is a good idea on incoming tide.

either place should produce, problem with beachs now is crowds. back areas should fish well now. ibsp at the jetty and walk back towards the geo tubes (black cylinders) behind the dunes, no crowds and usually lots of fish.

I agree with sandfly. Go to the jetty and walk around back. You should find a few.

Try tying a small #6 treble behind the hook on the clouser. I use clousers, deceiver type flies. small hooks work better than large. # 1 to #6 work. double hook rigs work also.

Interesting. They remind me of needlefish. Sound like they'd be a heck of a fight on a fly rod!
