Joe Massa took advantage of today’s weather to run down the beach with his My Three Sons from Morgan Marina to some of his favorite blackfish drops that produced enough keepers up to 21 inches among lots of shorts on whitelegger crabs before coming across working birds on the way back. His crew then had light tackle sport releasing 20-24-inch stripers on jigs.
The Elaine B. II from Bahrs in Highlands had lots of tog action Friday, and added their first cod of the year.
Bob Matthews reports from Fisherman’s Den in Belmar Marina that party boats there continue to do very well with blackfish, while surfcasters are catching small bass.
Good weather continues tomorrow with northeast winds at 5-10 knots before shifting to east in the afternoon. On the other hand, a gale watch will be going up for Monday morning through late that night.
