Captain's Focus

The fluke season wraps up on Tuesday, and the fleet will be out looking for them despite small craft warnings for gusty SW winds. Private anglers should find a fishable surf, and there are also fluke still in the rivers. Bob Matthews reported from Fisherman's Den in Belmar Marina that his rental skiffs have been catching limits in North Channel on live peanut bunkers, though killies also work.                                                                       The Ocean Explorer from that port reported good fluking with a 7-pound pool winner. The seasonal pool is up to $4820. The Big Mohawk had many limits and a pool fluke over 8 pounds. The Heavy Hitter pool is up to $over $3,000. Capt Ron Santee had good fluking from his Fishermen out of Atlantic Highlands until the hard south wind came up. There were lots of sea bass that had to be returned. The Golden Eagle from Belmar reported a very good day of chumming for lots of chub mackerel plus larger-size bonito plus some blues and little tunny. The Jamaica from Brielle had similar chumming plus several dolphin around the boat with two being caught. Freddie Reisel from Pa. won the pool with a 14-pound dolphin. Frank Huza of Aberdeen fished the Sandy Hook surf to no avail though there was a lot of bait and large snappers. Some fluke were being caught. Sorry for the late and brief blog, but I've been having computer problems.
