Speaking to several of the fisherman at Gloucester Point Fishing Pier; They have reported that fisherman are catching red drum, speckled trout, croaker, and flounder. The bluefin crab has brought several people out to try and catch some seafood. The sting rays, sharks and mudfish are still abundant and finding themselves hooked and causing havoc for some fisherman.
