The Golden Eagle from Belmar reported very good Saturday night action, but Sunday was even better as the blues were all “gaffers” in the 8-12-pound class. Super fishing for smaller blues continued today with limits for all plus sea bass that had to be released. Jigs were best, but bait is also working well.
