It’s not likely that there will be any reports to add during a poor weather day, but there was continuing good news from the far offshore wrecks that have been producing limit jumbo sea bass catches on the Big Jamaica from Brielle.
That party boat reports there have also been lots of porgies plus some bluefish, weakfish and ling. Weekend pool winners were Tony Tran from Germantown, Md. with a 12-pound pollock and two anglers with 7-pound sea bass — Jerry Chen from Staten Island, and Fred Cheng of Sayreville. Melito Bisany of Bellville had a 6.2-pound sea bass. The Jamaica has openings on many trips through the end of the year. Call 732 528-5014 for reservations.
The gale watch is continued tonight, but improves tomorrow to northwest at 20 knots with gusts to 30 that should start knocking down the big seas. It may take a day or two for the waters to clear.
Chuck Many has been releasing many trophy stripers since moving his Ty Man to Cape Charles, Virginia. Mike Greene and Bob Bowden have joined him. When I fished live eels with Chuck there several years ago, my first bite was from a bass over 50 pounds. Those interested in releasing a trophy striper there can get in touch with Sho-Nuf Sportfishing at 757 710- 0098.
