The Canyon Runner fleet, which is booking for an Oregon Inlet charter boat makes a point about the abundance of giant bluefin tuna in the offshore waters there. If you’ve never caught a giant, this may be your best shot at doing so. Trolling is also producing “meat” in the form of school yellowfins and mako sharks.  Call 732 272-4445 for info.yellowfin - N.C. winter

 

Phil Sciortino, at The Tackle Box in Hazlet, got reports of school stripers bitting after midnight for shore casters along Raritan Bay. Bloodworms are the bait. Phil saw a photo of a released bass that was definitely over 28 inches. That fishing should get steadily better in the warm days coming up.

Fisherman’s Den in Belmar Marina reports just a few winter flounder were caught there yesterday during the opening day for that species.

Small craft warnings remain up tonight, but the morning forecast is for only southwest at 5-10 knots before going to south in the afternoon with possible showers.
