Good casting, jigging and trolling reports keep coming in, but Capt. John McMurray of NYCTUNA says it’s getting harder to find the weather needed to get offshore in comfort. He’s been running through lots of little tunny on the way out to catch yellowfin tuna and dolphin such as the one below.

Capt. Ron Santee only had a few regulars show up to fish for porgies on his Fishermen at Atlantic Highlands, but went fishing anyway. Some jumbo porgies were caught along with a couple of triggerfish, but good-sized sea bass had to go back since they’re out of season.

The Big Mohawk from Belmar concluded their fluke season with Sunday’s charter that produced some limits. Dan Mancini won the pool with a 7-pounder –and ended up with the seasonal pools for the 13-pound doormat he boated last month.

Vinny D’Anton continues to pick away at school stripers in the Monmouth County surf, and was able to raise them with the Chug Bug this morning. He expects to see mullet moving when swells from the hurricane bear down on the Shore.

A small craft warning comes down at 10 p.m. The morning forecast is for northwest winds at 10-15 knots plus gusts to 30.
