The Golden Eagle from Belmer reported reading blues this morning, but only catching a few until the 5–8-pounders came up later in the trip to chase bunkers and also hit Run-Off poppers.The boat added some keeper fluke and sea bass.
Capt. Ron Santee had a charter for the Brian Benevento memorial trip on his Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands. He reported lots of short action along with a nice mix of keeper fluke and sea bass. The pool fluke was 23 inches. Tomorrow’s open trip will be the last shot for anglers to take the monthly pool money.
Vinny D’Anton Said he couldn’t find the Monmouth County surf peanut bunkers yesterday morning, but still caught one small striper on a Chug Bug and saw some adult bunkers further out.
The forecast is for a northeast wind, but at only 5-10 knots.
