Sorry for the late blog, but I just got back from the awards party in Brick for the JCAA Tournament. I’ll have all the details tomorrow.
The MidAtlantic is all set to go on Monday out of Cape May and Ocean City, Md. with about 150 boats and a purse of over $6 million. I’ll be doing late blogs this week with results each day after the scales close at 9 p.m.
The Jamaica from Brielle reported a slow start to their daily 7:30 a.m. trip, but ended up with a good mix of blues, bonito, chub mackerel and sea bass. Joe Andros of Bound Brook won today’s pool with a 5-pound bonito. On Monday they will run offshore to concentrate on bonito.
