The steady bluefish jigging was tougher today in rain and wind, but the Golden Eagle from Belmar reported that those who stayed at the rail did all right — and sea bass were aded to the catch. The forecast is much better for Monday with north winds at 5 to 10 knots before going east in the afternoon — which bodes well for the bluefish bite.
The Jamaica from Brielle has room on its last tilefish trip of the year at 10 p.m. Monday. The cost is $330, and reservations are available by calling 732 528-5014. They’ll be trying to find a tilefish bigger than the one Dennis Muhlenforth boated on the Voyager this year.
The White Marlin Open promised full results on Saturday, but I’m still waiting.
