Captain's Focus

The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission will be holding a conference call at 10 a.m. Wednesday to discuss the possibility that the recreational catch last year was underestimated and, if so, what to do about it. Sea bass seasons are already severely restricted despite an obvious abundance that doesn't seem to show up in scientific calculations. The rain this morning scared most fishermen off even though it didn't amount to much -- especially compared to the gloom and doom forecast of thunder storms and heavy rain. Capt. Ron Santee swept the docks at Atlantic Highlands to get barely enough to sail for fluke with his Fishermen. Once the drift got right there was good action, though more shorts than there had been were included. Fluke of 8 1/4 and 7 pounds were boated. The Golden Eagle didn't get out of Belmar, but the day before they made a move to the east to get into lots of 1-to-3-pound blues and 1-to-2-pound chub mackerel. The Queen Mary from Point Pleasant reported good bait fishing over the weekend for chub mackerel, sea bass and sharks. Capt. Vinny Vetere of Katfish Charters in Great Kills reported very good striper fishing over the weekend with a range from 12 to 36 pounds.
