Bluefish, striped bass may be anywhere in or adjacent to the rip – look for diving birds or baitfish near the surface. False albacore and bonito later in the season. Popping plugs, metals, swimming plugs, flies recommended.
Troll south side of the rip from buoy “12” to buoy “6” (Wreck Shoal) in same direction as the tide, following 15 – 20 foot contour. Use deep diving plugs or swimming plugs, metals or large soft plastics on wire line.
A favorite area to bottom fish for large fluke (use cut squid). Fish depths of 15 – 30 feet on the north side of the rip.
