The Jamaica from Brielle ran beyond their usual daily range today and came up with more bonito, blues and little tunny than they’ve been seeing — plus a couple of bluefin tuna and some Spanish mackerel. As a result they are taking reservations for a special 6:30 a.m. trip to that area on Monday.
The inshore forecast remains good for tomorrow morning, with south winds at 5-10 knots. Thunderstorms are possible in the afternoon.
The mid-range yellowfin tuna bite continues. Mark Roy overnighted Thursday and his crew caught three of the 11 they hooked from Release Me out of Raritan Marina in Hazlet while chunking. He said there were 80 boats in the area on a Friday.
