Though the overall jigging for blues on the Golden Eagle from Belmar was rated just O.K., there were bigger ones of 8, 9 and 10 pounds mixed in. Sea bass once again provided some action later in the trip along with “plenty of ling”. They have room on the Saturday and Sunday mornng trips.
The Jamaica from Brielle had good bluefish and sea bass fishing today, and is also fishing at 7:30 p.m. tonight and tomorrow for blues.
The Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands had poor drifting sonditions again, but still recorded several limits and fluke up to a 5 7/8-pounder by Bill Goorman. They are chartered Sunday.
The forecast is for southwest winds at 5-10 knots. Showers are possible early — and thunderstorms in the afternoon.
