LBI NJ Fishing Report 10/5/20 #LBI

It was a good weekend weather wise and the fishing was great here on Long Beach Island. There’s a lot of opportunities right now to get a line wet and catch some fish for both beach and boat anglers. Here’s a look at the Long Beach Island surf on Monday October 5, 2020 at 1pm. At the time of this post the surf is in the 3-4′ range with a light northerly wind. Dropping tide with low at 4:30pm and sunset at 6:30pm

Next weekend is the start of the LBI Surf Fishing Tournament. The 9 weeks of surf fishing fun kicks off on Saturday October 10th. For this year’s 66th Annual there’s some changes. Due to change in striped bass fishing regulations, where anglers are allowed one striper in a “slot” (28 to less than 38 inches), the LBI Surf Fishing Classic has adapted the rules and prize structure. There is no more $1000 Striped Bass Grand Prize, BUT there now is three $1,000 segment prizes. To spice up the competition a new species, Kingfish was added with cash prizes for the largest (daily, weekly, segment and grand prize).
