I went diving at the Manasquan Railroad Bridge today 7/15/13. As the tide was coming in the visibility wasn't great, but once the tide slacked I had about 4-5 feet of visibility. Water was still cold, but the bottom was filled with life. I saw about two dozen baby fluke 2 to 5 inches literally everywhere. Black Seabass were all around and there seemed to be a fair amount of blue crabs as well. Many starfish and schools of killies and a few scattered Blackfish. I was talking to another diver as I was leaving and he swore that earlier in the week he spotted what he believed to be barracudas and he said that he saw a school of squid for his first time ever in the river. He also was talking about how Superstorm Sandy seemed to bring a lot of fish he hadn't seen in the river in years, like blow fish and trigger fish. Hope this helps -Enjoy!
