After party boats enjoyed very good ocean jigging for 2-pound blues yesterday, it was just the opposite today.

Miss Belmar Princess reported only a few were jigged during a frustrating day in good conditions. Surprisingly, there were quite a few short weakfish caught.

The Big Mohawk from Belmar got back to bottom fishing yesterday, and had the expected action with porgies and triggerfish — but everyone also had their one fish tog limit.

Nick Honachefsky has been loading up on small blues the last two days in the the Seaside area surf. There are a few to 4 pounds among the cocktails which are taking mullet rigs — but also hit on shad lures and teasers. Nick finished up blackfishing off Elberon today. and caught some along with a conger and a tropical pinfish.

Nick’s Barrier Islands Beach Brawl is coming up next weekend. It’s necessary to sign up right away at — or in person at Betty & Nick’s in Seaside Park.

Light winds continue on Sunday with southeast breezes at 5-10 knots before shifting to east in the afternoon.
