Captain's Focus

Scott Leadbeater of Haddon Heights bailed out while fishing in Raritan Bay with his center console out of Atlantic Highlands when he got into surfacing 3-to-6-pound blues on light tackle as he moved toward West Bank. Party boats soon put them down. He also caught an 18-inch fluke in Raritan Reach before the drift died around 9 a.m. The Jamaica from Brielle reported good bluefish jigging . They switch afternoon sailings from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. to Family Fun Fishing as of Sunday. The July 4 trip features both fishing and watching the Long Branch fireworks from 5 to 9:30 p.m. Call 732 528-5014 or information. Capt. Stan Zagleski had catches up to four fluke on Thursday as Ken McGill of Atlantic Highlands won the pool with a 6 3/16-pounder. The Elaine B. II from Bahrs in Highlands had a wind against tide situation today, but the high hook managed four keeper fluke. Bob Matthews, at Fisherman's Den in Belmar Marina, reports fair fluking in Shark River. Charles Dana of Freehold boated a 7-pounder, and Marty Westerfield from Wall had several up to 3 1/2 pounds. The Big Mohawk and the Ocean Explorer are bringing in fluke pool winners in the 7-to-10-pound class.  Small blues are hitting in the inlet, and some school stripers have been caught on sandworms in the surf. Surfcasting at Spring Lake was slow this morning in a continuing large swell, though I did get one light hit on a popper.
