Porgy fishing on far offshore wrecks was even better than it has been yesterday for anglers on the Jamaica from Brielle as everyone was able to limit on the big scup,  There wasn’t much variety, as Ralph Reevy of Camden won the pool with a 7.5-pound white hake while Angel Garcia from Lancaster, Pa. took second with a 3-pound porgy.


As a result of that fine fishing, the Jamaica will make the far offshore wreck trip next weekend on both Saturday and Sunday.  They’ve also added March 2 and 3. Reservations are required for the 1 a.m. trip. Call 732 528-5014.hake


Though the weather was good today, there were no other reports.

Some snow or rain is coming in with 10-15 knot east winds after midnight. The marine forecast for the morning is northeast at 10-15 knots with rain before shifting to northwest in the afternoon with gusts to 20.


  1. Hi Al hope all is well. Looking to bring my son on a tarpon trip for his college graduation present. Do you have any suggestions?


    1. That’s what I did with my son Mike when he graduated from Miami, and we caught so many big tarpon with the late Joe Alexander out of Key West that he said he’d never have to fish for them again. i
      Capt. Rick Kilgore in Tavernier (305 852-1131) is an old friend and as good as any. Richard Stanczyk (305 343-8351)at Bud’N’ Mary’s in Islamorada can fix you up with his son who even catches tarpon when it’s “too early”.
      Good luck!-
