Though power drifting was necessary all day, Capt. Ron Santee reported good fluke action on his Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands that included catches of up to four, several 3-pounders — and a 4 13/16-pound pool fluke.

The Royal Miss Bell reported much improved fluking that was paced by an 11-year-old boy who picked his limit from 18 fluke.

Miss Belmar Princess had a busy day with lots of chub mackerel plus some blues, sea bass and bonito. A couple of big sand tiger sharks were also hooked.

Light winds continue tomorrow with southwest winds at10-15 knots plus a chance of showers or thunderstorms.

John Tiedermann was casting for fluke at Sandy Hook, and thought a doormat had grabbed his jig until he remembered that cownose rays have arrived.
