Canyon tuna fishing continues to be poor during what used to be prime time. Fortunately, dolphin have been providing party boat anglers on canyon overnighters with plenty of action and good eating,
The Golden Eagle from Belmar returned from this week’s trip with lots of dolphin, but only lost one tuna and a swordfish. Tuna were even breaking out there, but wouldn’t bite.
Porgy fishing was good again today for Capt. Ron Santee on his Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands as his anglers went to heavier weights to hold bottom in the new moon currents. Some sea bass, blowfish and bluefish were also hooked. Santee advises clients to fish tomorrow since it may be too rough for a couple of days after that.
The forecast is for 10-15-knot southwest winds with gusts to 20 and 4-7-foot seas in the morning as land temperature may hit 80 degrees. A small craft advisory goes up through Thursday afternoon. There’s a shift to northeast tomorrow night with 15-20-knot winds and gusts to 25.
The east swell was back on the beach this morning, and fishing conditions were poor during the low tide period.
