Capt. Lou Grazioso has been keeping track of the remarkable yellowfin tuna run in the Triple Wrecks area, and reports that they are still there feasting on large sand eels. Bluefins have also moved into that location.
The Golden Eagle from Belmar had an :OK” trip there this week, catching some tuna and losing others. Some blues and little tunny were also caught. They had a pick of big blues and sea bass on both bait and jigs today, but will be fishing for tuna tomorrow.
Miss Belmar Princess reported a pick of 8-12-pound blues mostly on bait today.
Capt. Rob Semkewyc really didn’t have enough fares to sail his Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands today, but he went anyway because the weather was so nice. All but one of the eight anglers caught their one striper limit.
Betty & Nick’s in Seaside Park had good news on the surf front as bass up to 35 inches were reported from the pocket area at the park.
Wednesday’s forecast is for south winds at 5-10 knots before increasing to 10-15 in the afternoon with gusts to 20 knots.
