There should be many weigh-ins during today’s opening of the MidAtlantic in Cape May plus Ocean City, Maryland, but I will wait to summerize them in a later blog after the scales close tonight
The Mimi VI from Point Pleasant has a last minute availability on a Wednesday 7 a.m. 32-hour offshore tuna trip. The cost is $480, and the one spot can be reserved by calling 732 370-8019.
The Golden Eagle from Belmar reported bluefish jigging was decent today before they added sea bass plus some fluke and chub mackerel. Both plain and tubed jigs were equally effective. That boat is fishing offshore on its weekly Exotics trip tomorrow.
Chuck Many got back to striped bass fishing and put his crew on them, including a ouple over 25 pounds, before heading east for a boat limit of fluke up to a 7.74-pounder on his Tyman from Highlands.
The forecast is for southeast winds at 5-10 knots before increasing to 10-15 in the afternoon.
Capt. Jim Freda said he saw a white marlin in the Sea Girt surf a few days ago. Could that be the same lost marlin observed from LBI to Bay Head a few weeks ago?
