There was no lack of bluefish today for N.J. party boats as the Golden Eagle from Belmar reported a boat limit was jigged. They also had some bonito, and saw a little tunny. Those blues were on the small side, but some days bigger blues are mixed in.
Bob Matthews at Fisherman’s Den in Belmar Marina reports small blues, porgies and kingfish are in Shark River. The bottom fish are hitting worms and small pieces of clam. Bob is most impressed by the yellowfin tuna run at the Triple Wrecks where the Golden Eagle boated 54 during this week’s trip.
The Queen Mary from Point Pleasant also scored with those tuna up to 80 pounds on their final Tuna Tuesday trip of the year.
Great weather continues with a Friday forecast of northwest at 10-15 knots with gusts to 20 that should settle and clear the surf somewhat.
