Captain's Focus

The only fluke report so far today came from Elaine B. II out of Bahrs in Highlands, and Capt. Stan Zagleski had good news. Drifting conditions were good, and the fluke larger than on Friday -- with some in the 5-pound class. Roger Solomon of Elmwood Park boated the largest fluke reported so far at 7 11/16 pounds. Tom Hollywood Sr. & Jr. from Staten Island combined for five keepers up to 5 pounds. The Angler from Atlantic Highlands made a 12-minute drift Friday morning before heading offshore, and came up with 15 short fluke plus five keepers. They only picked at sea bass at the first four drops, but the last produced doubles and triples. Most were shorts, though there were quite a few big fish included. Dave Brink of Hazlet took the pool with a cod, and there were some ling caught. The Golden Eagle from Belmar had a few drifts with blues on Run-Off Hammer jigs, but not enough. That boat adds a Sunday afternoon fishing and cruise trip from 4:30 to 8:30, and they will run a Magic Hours departure for big stripers on Tuesday from 3:30 to 10:30 p.m. The latter is limited to 20, with a $75 fare by reservation. Joe Melillo, at Castaways Tackle in Point Pleasant, weighed an 11-pound striper caught in Point Pleasant Canal by Bob Matthews of Belmar, plus two surf bass - a 13 3/8-pounder by Bob Longo of Brick on a plug, and a 12 1/8-pounder on metal for Jeff Garnett from Howell.
