With a nice day on a holiday weekend, I expected to get a lot of reports — but that wasn’t the case.
Capt. Stan Zagleski of Elaine B II from Bahrs in Highlands said there was little movement today — which is never good for fluking. Some keepers were caught during periods of movement, but fishing wasn’t up to yesterday’s standard.
The Golden Eagle from Belmar found bluefish, but they were skittish and wouldn’t hit well. A attempt at striper fishing also didn’t work, so they filled in with decent sea bass fishing though not enough.
Jim Louro ran his Vicki Lynn from Manasquan up the river where he and Frank Manzi caught two keeper fluke plus shorts in a couple of hours this morning on pink and chartreuse bucktail jigs tipped with Gulp of the same color.
I gave Point Pleasant Canal a try despite the weekend boat traffic, and got a couple of bumps that kept me there longer than I planned. I didn’t see anything caught.
