The weather forecast for the next two days is as good as you can get it for boaters with today’s gusty northwest decreasing to 5 knots west by morning — and only getting up to 5-10 SW Thursday before increasing that night. The NW did its job of knocking down the swell, and that’s always good news for bottom fishing.
The Big Mohawk from Belmar is taking advantage of that by sailing the next two days at 7 a.m. Blackfishing was good Saturday with some limits and a pool tog of about 10 pounds.
The Big Jamaica from Brielle 11 p.m. every night this week. Call 732 528-5014 for reservations on those jumbo sea bass trips.
The gusty NW this morning made surfcasting uncomfortable, and waters remained dingy. I cast at Belmar and caught only one small bass on a Castaways white teaser. There were about 15 anglers spread along the beach, and that was the only one I saw. Joe Melillo, at Castaways Tackle in Point Pleasant said he heard of a couple of other bass hooked at Belmar and knew of a couple at Bay Head. Jerry Lasko fished IBSP from his buggy and cauught one small bass. Water conditions should be better tomorrow.
