Capt. Chris Di Stefano said Frank Criscola’s Crisdel from Brielle Yacht Club had red hot white marlin fishing this week in Hudson Canyon — but there were no tuna at the time. They couldn’t catch up to the 33 whites posted in the Manasquan River Marlin & Tuna Club Offshore Open by Reel Steel. That contest has ended, but the club hasn’t posted official results as yet.

Fluke fishing conditions were good today on a calming ocean and with less current.

At Belmar, the Big Mohawk reported a pick that included several limits and an 8.5-pound pool winner.  They will sail at 6:30 a.m. all week. The Ocean Explorer had high hooks that took limits from four to six keepers, though others had a hard time hooking the fluke holding tight to structure. The Golden Eagle  found blues to be a little tougher today, but some fares caught up to 10 plus a few  bonito and Spanish mackerel.

The Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands reported a couple of fluke limits were taken, but jiggers didn’t do as well as yesterday. Gulp and bait was best.

Capt. Stan Zagleski had a decent pick of keeper fluke  on his Elaine B. II from Bahrs in Highlands. Robert Finley of East Brunswick took the pool with a 6 1/4-pounder by just two ounces over Melanie Fazio of Spotswood.

The Queen Mary from Point Pleasant did well with blues, bonito and a few Spanish mackerel today, but they are chartered on Tuesday.
