Party boat anglers haven’t had much to fish for in NJ waters and were looking forward to Friday’s opening of the blackfish season. Sorry to say, but the weather doesn’t look good.
The Golden Eagle from Belmar has cancelled Friday’s trip due to big swells on the ocean. However, the weekend looks better.
Bob Matthews reports from Fisherman’s Den in Belmar Marina that striper anglers are doing well in Raritan River, but the winter flounder fishing in Shark River has been very poor — possibly due to a lack of sunny days.
