Fluke anglers can save on entry fees for upcoming contests by entering today.
The 27th Point Pleasant Elks Fluke Tournament has an entry fee of $160 for Saturday’s big money engagement — which increases to $210 tomorrow. That covers up to four anglers. Visit pointpleasantelks.org to sign up.
The JCAA Heavy Hitters Fluke Tournament has an early entry fee of $150 for those who sign up by 7/28/2022. It’s $175 thereafter.
That contest is a lot different as it runs from Aug. 4-7, but only one day can be fished. There’s also a $25,000 prize for the largest fluke over 12 pounds at no extra charge for those who fish on Aug. 7. Up to six anglers per boat can fish, and only six lines can be in the water. The payouts will be for single fish this year, rather than multiples– though there are also Calcuttas for multiples and sea bass. Sign up at jcaa.org or call Paul Haertel at 973 943-8201 for info.
A really last-minute opportunity to bottom fish on Mimi VI from Point Pleasant at 6:30 in the morning is available by calling 732 370-8019.
The Golden Eagle from Belmar reports that bluefish were marking today, but not hitting well .Run-Off poppers worked best.

Andrea’s Toy reports they had Don Beshada back with 2 special guests. Jordon Burroughs and dad Leroy. For you wrestling fans this is the same Jordon who is a 6-time World and Olympic Champion! Got out to the grounds and found the life, and the boys proceeded to jig and pop some nice yellows. First time the Burroughs ever tuna fished. Great job boys!
