Captain's Focus

Posted on January 8, 2021 Special trips target big blackfish If you are going to put up with the potential discomforts of a winter fishing trip, you might as well seek a really special fish. That’s what a couple of N.J. party boats are doing this weekend. As noted this week, the Ocean Explorer from Belmar is running a Super Pool trip Sunday at 6:30 which costs $100 but also requires another $100 for the pool for the biggest tog. Call 848 565-0519 for a reservation. The Gambler from Point Pleasant will be making a limited trip 35 to 50 miles to trophy tog wrecks and rocks to the south on Saturdays and Tuesdays this month. The fare is $200, and there will be big money pools. Call 732 295-7569 for reservations. Mike Monte gave the Belmar surf 45 minutes of casting under perfect conditions this morning without a hit. Yet, he plans to keep trying as the water temperature is 47 degrees and stripers should still be around. Surfcasting conditions remain favorable Saturday as the forecast is north winds at 15-20 knots with gusts to 25 that drop to 10-15 after midnight and set up a calmer northwest on Sunday.
