Bluefishing is building up in NY/NJ Bight, but boaters can’t count on waiting for surface indications in order to jig them. The Golden Eagle from Belmar reported scattered readings on bottom which produced action on jigs and teasers ranging up to limits. Private boaters should keep a sharp eye on their fishfinder and check out any fleets building up in order to narrow the search. Today’s blues ranged from 2 to 7 pounds.

The Jamaica from Brielle simply reported bluefish limits for all. They are adding 7:30 p.m. night bluefish trips this weekend. The Jamaica also has a couple of spots left on a June 27 tuna trip which departs at 9:30 p.m.

The weekend weather looks good, with west winds at just 5-10 knots tomorrow before going south in the afternoon.

Vinny D’Anton has been picking small stripers in the Monmouth County surf with his Chug Bug, but switched back to sand fleas this morning for a flurry that included a 30-inch bass.

Rays should be showing up in the surf shortly, but hopefully you won’t hook one like this 16-footer that set a record for largest freshwater fish recently in Cambodia.
