Capt. Ron Santee Jr. got out today for his first bottom fishing trip with his Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands and reported a one drop bite of porgies as everyone loaded up.
The bluefish news wasn’t as good as the Golden Eagle from Belmar found off-color waters and just a pick of blues even though they could see them in the waters. They also released some sea bass and boated a 5-foot “sand shark”. They plan to look further offshore tomorrow.
The marine forecast is for northwest winds at 5-10 knots before going to southwest in the afternoon. The seas are down to 2 to 3 feet.
A real last minute opportunity is a Hudson Canyon trip at 7 a.m. on the Mimi VI from Pt. Pleasant. There are two spots left at $480 each. Call 732 370-2019.
