Dave Lilly couldn’t come up with a contender, though there was no lack of action. The problem was that smooth dogfish dominated. They were especially bad on Sunday when there was little drift. Dave was so worn out by the big dogfish that he had to come in by noon.

The Golden Eagle from Belmar had another good bluefishing trip today with some larger choppers included before adding sea bass.

Capt. Ron Santee had steady Sunday action with his Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands as several anglers ended up with two keepers. A 4-pound fluke took the pool and there also some sea bass. That boat is chartered Wednesday and Thursday.

Small craft warnings are up through Tuesday morning for gusty southwest winds.

Vinny D’Anton got into school stripers up to a 29-incher this morning in the Monmouth County surf as small peanut bunkers were the attraction. Both MirrOlures and the Chuug Bug worked.

The Jamaica from Brielle reports tuna have finally moved into the Mid-Shore areas 30-70 miles from the inlet. Their next tuna trip by reservation will be at 11 p.m. 7/24. Daily trips for blues and sea bass also included a surprising cobia.
