The Jamaica from Brielle had their best canyon tuna trip Friday night They were reading tuna all night, but there were only sharks and no tuna hits until Kyle Budd of Lakewood jigged a yellowfin at 6:30 a.m. Then the bite turned on with both jigs and bait. Check with the Jamaica about this week’s canyon trips by calling 732 528-5014. They will be fishing for stripers tomorrow and other days when not in the canyons.
The Mimi VI will be running open for bottom fishing out of Point Pleasant Monday and Thursday. Call 732 370-8019 for reservations on the 7 a.m. $75 trips.
Today was a blowout with a gale warning and lots of rain, but all that died out this evening — though the surf will probably be discolored in the morning.
