There have been sea bass openers when that fishing died down to a pick after the initial burst, but that doesn’t seem to be the case so far as limits are still common. The Golden Eagle from Belmar was able to put in the day on just one wreck that produced 95% keeper sea bass. However, conditions weren’t right for bluefish which have been showing up most days. Those 2-4-pounders have been hitting jigs.

Due to the slow start with fluke, the Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands will be switching to live lining for striped bass on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. The trips are limited to 20 anglers at $100 by reservation.
The Sea Tiger II from that port did a lot of running around for few fluke Sunday morning, but had one fare with the first three-fluke limit on the afternoon trip when a few blues were also caught.
Capt. Stan Zagleski Jr. said the first weekend of fluking on Elaine B II from Bahrs in Highlands only produced a pick of shorts and keepers, but the highlight was seeing a large whale just 20 feet off the bow at the dock.
Results from yesterday’s Governor’s Surf Fishing Tournament haven’t been posted as yet.
