With even the Jamaica and Big Mohawk having shut down for the winter, it's been some time since I've even seen a fishing report. However, the Ocean Exploerer from Belmar took advantage of a window of decent weather this weekend to fish offshore on Saturday. The bottom was lively, though most of the catch was bergalls. Some of those fine-eating fish were big enough to fillet. Fares did catch a few keeper cod and ling, but all the blackfish hooked were shorts.
