It appears that the Sunday and Monday blogs I thought had been published never did appear. Therefore, I’ll repeat that information as there may mot be much more fishing coming up with small craft warnings today to be followed on Wednesday by gale warnings with gusts up to 45 knots in the afternoon. Bitter cold temperatures and perhaps some snow are also in the picture.
The Canyon Runner from Point Pleasant has been enjoying great giant tune fishing while operating out of Oregon Inlet, N.C. for the winter trolling. There latest and largest catch was a 115-inch giant that had a cored weight of 706 pounds. apt. Deane Lambros used a formula to place the total weight at from 868 to 893 pounds. They also had their first bigeye of the year on that trip plus a yellowfin. A 106-inch was caught Friday, — and a 90-incher was boated Sunday along with a wahoo.
The Canyon Runner Seminar on Saturday in Atlantic City is almost sold out. That must for offshore anglers can try calling Adam La Rosa at 732 842-6825 for a possible ticket.
The Big Jamaica from Brielle had another successful porgy trip to the offshore wrecks where those fish were read 40-50 feet thick on the fishfinder. There was also some variety with a few ling, white hake and pollock plus lots of mackerel for those that wanted to jig them. Earl Speer of Forked River won the pool with a 8-pound pollock, and Rob Fusiek from Cape May was second with a 4.5-pound ling. That trip will be repeated Saturday, and the Jamaica may get a break again as only a 5-10 knot northwest wind is forecast for that day. Call 732 528-5014 for reservations.
