2019 SeaView Fishing Pier
It is starting to look a little bit like fall with schools of baitfish swimming around the pier heading toward the south. The weather was nice but still a little on the warm side. Flounder, Bluefish, Mullets, some Spade Fish and a few Sheepshead, and Pinfish added to the mix today. Some large Spanish Mackerel were caught today using live bait.
Some Bluefish were being caught all day but the bigger ones were in the morning. Big Spanish Mackerel were caught using live mud minnows. Lizard Fish, Pinfish and some keeper Flounder were also caught.
Today was a great day to be at the beach. The weather was nice and Bluefish were being caught with some being a nice size in the morning. Spanish Mackerel, Pompano, Pinfish, Lizard Fish and some Mullets added to the catch.
A lot of small Flounder were caught today with a few keepers. Some small Bluefish were caught during the day. Some Mullets were caught with some being nice sized. Pinfish, Sharks, Ladyfish, small Trout and Lizard Fish were being caught as well.
It was a fairly nice day with some big Bluefish caught early in the morning. Smaller Bluefish were caught off and on all day. Some Mullets, Pinfish and Lizard Fish added to the mix.
Bigger Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel were being caught today with Gotcha plugs and diamond jigs. Once again Mullets were off and on all day.
We started catching bigger Bluefish with Gotcha plugs today with smaller ones being the most abundant. Mullets were being caught off and on all day from small to fairly large ones being caught. Puffer Fish, Sharks and small Trout added to the catch.
Today was a pretty good fishing day with a moderate wind and scattered
Sunshine. A lot of small Mullets and small Bluefish were being caught by bottom fishing. Some undersized Trout, Puffer Fish and some large Mullets added to the mix.
It was a nice day with plenty of sunshine and a light wind. Sting Rays and Dogfish were being caught along with plentiful Puffer fish, some Mullets and some small Trout.
Today it was a little overcast with some rain. There was the usual catch of Puffer fish with a few mullets being caught for the first time.
The opening day at Seaview Fishing Pier was an overcast and rather dreary day. However, a lot of Puffer fish were caught which is typical for this time of the year.
Since last winter ended on the wet and cold side, it seems we are going to have a late spring fish bite. The average year we really don't start seeing good sized Sea Mullet (Whiting) until the first day of spring (March 20th) but I'm thinking that the fish will start to bite a little later this spring, especially with the water temperature still around 57. The Northern Puffer Fish are the first fish to move in and then the Sea Mullets and Black Drum are the next to move in. Hopefully this will be our last blast from old man winter and we can get back to the seasonable temperatures that we are used to. During the spring on our part of the coast, SW, S and W winds are the best for fishing and the N winds are when the fish tend to bite the least. With the water temperature still below 60 degrees, an occasional puffer or dogfish might be caught but once it goes above 60, that is when the fishing should start to get better.
Seaview Fishing Pier is happy to announce that we will open for the 2019 season on this Saturday, March 2, 2019 at 630am. Come on out and spend some time on the planks. The restaurant will be open for breakfast and lunch.
