The Golden Eagle had another fine report from their Tuesday offshore fishing as ” some nice size tuna 70-85 pounds” were boated along with some lost and 40 to 50 mahi up to 25 pounds. Today’s bluefish trip was good with 2-pounders hitting on long drifts and many limits taken, Run-Off poppers were most effective.
At Atlantic Highlands, Capt. Ron Santee found better action with jumbo porgies on his Fishermen along with a showing of triggerfish with one angler catching three of them.
