Small craft warnings are up for northeast winds at 15-20 knots with gusts to 30 on Monday. They may diminish during the afternoon. The Big Mohawk from Belmar reported an improvement in bottom fishing for sea bass, porgies and winter flounder. They will sail for that sport in the morning, and have scheduled a striper trip for Wednesday. The Golden Eagle from Belmar got into stripers and sea bass today. They claimed a striper of about 50 pounds was boated. There were also tuna around the boat, with one hooked but lost. Rich Carione fished Saturday with his Bustin’ Chop out of Manasquan Inlet and jigged school stripers at Breezy Point before trolling at Romer Shoal and Ambrose Channel for a bass in the 40-pound class. A 26-pounder was added while jigging. Everyone yesterday reported huge bunker schools in both the bay and ocean. Several thresher sharks were hooked by bunker spoon trollers.
