NOAA Fisheries is reopening the General category commercial fishery for large medium and giant bluefin on Monday for four days with a limit of one per boat day in order to allow harvest of the remaining quarterly quota. This also applies to the Charter/Headboat category boats with a commercial sale endorsement when fishing commercially.

Vinny D’Anton fished Spring Lake yesterday and found no signs of the large stripers that had been in the surf, but did catch two of the very small stripers normally found in the December surf on the same MirrOlure he’s been casting.

The Ocean Explorer from Belmar reported anglers had to work through short blackfish in order to catch some keepers.

The forecast is for east winds at 10 knots plus rain.
