Default 7/16 Report.....and bunker kill???)

Had family today so motored shallow hitting Skeleton Hill and back to the Bridge.

Drop offs from 8-20 fow had plenty of shorts on 1/2 oz bucks and 2” swimming mullets. Same MO as every other day. Good bite. Smallies galore.

4” snaps busting bait all over the sand bars.

How in the hell yall who fish back here deal with the the salad is beyond me!!!

And last...::.ran into dead bunks around coming around Earle then again later in the evening. All had road rash.

After seeing the water temps beginning to rise into the high 70's and with a heat wave arriving this week, expect to see more dead bunkers in the rivers. Any additional runoff from rainfall will only expedite the algae bloom and the consequential fish kill.

By the way, there are miles of bunkers in the ocean. We saw huge schools in areas from southern Monmouth County to Rockaway, N.Y. That is quite a spread.

I would have thought it was a water temp/quality issue but I don’t think that was the case. Healthy schools both E / W and N of Earle the last 3 days. Almost looked like dumped old bait the way they were rashed up but way too many floating for that to be the case.
