Bob Dodds invited me to join a Brett Taylor Fluke charter for Friday May 6th. However, due to incessant NE winds, we rescheduled for Wednesday May 11th for 4:30 to 8:30 PM. Brett picked up Bob, me and a third angler, another Bob, at Bobbies Boats in Barnegat Light and we proceeded up into High Bar Harbor.
Unlike Double Creek which still has no marker buoys, High Bar’s buoys were not removed. But what remains is all but useless since the buoys are moved off their original locations and only a handful of the stick markers remain.
After an initial drift by the clam stakes which produced only one hit, we moved up past the homes and fished along the bay side of LBI. We were all dressed warmly and it was a pleasant evening fishing after a long spring. We only caught ~10 fish with 4 keepers – two 17’s, one 19 and a 21+ caught by Bob Dodds. Not the best catching, but the fishing was wonderful!
