With striped bass fishing winding down, and blackfish limits low, large party boats are turning to the to the big catches of large sea bass and porgies available on far offshore wrecks. Limit catches are routine, and several other species often provide variety.

At Brielle, the Jamaica has room on the 10 p.m. Wednesday trip — and has added another for the following Wednesday. The Paramount sails to those deep water wrecks at 9 p.m. Tuesday. Call 732 528-5014 for the required reservations.

The Golden Eagle from Belmar has spots available on Tuesday’s sea bass trip at 7 p.m.

A small craft advisory is up through Tuesday morning. The morning forecast is for northwest winds at 15-20 knots plus gusts to 25 knots before dropping to 10-15 knots in the afternoon. Wednesday sounds ideal with 5-10-knot north winds.

Jerry Lasko said there was some small striper action in the Ocean County surf this morning as he released four and Maren Toleno added two.
