Captain's Focus

Joe Melillo is proud of this weekend's win by the small-membership Spring Lake Live Liners over bigger clubs in the Monmouth Beach Cartoppers contest. He said the Asbury Park club was second. Melillo nailed a13 9/16-pound striper on a swimming plug in the Point Pleasant surf, and Mike Commune of Brick plugged a 13-pounder there. Gerald CeCe of Point Pleasant plugged his 17-pound bass at Bay Head, where Terry Martuscelli of Brick fished a chunk to beach a 17-pound bass. Mickey Sweeney of Howell fished clams in Bay Head for linesiders of 11 and 13 pounds. The big swell made surf fishing very difficult at Point Pleasant when I tried it briefly this morning, and there was also some weed in the water to coat lures that were cast far enough to possibly reach a fish. Allen Riley of South Plainfield also found an unexpectedly large swell when he arrived with his crew at Monmouth Beach this morning. Only his brother, Ed Riley of Edison, managed a fish -- a 23-inch short striper on a 1-ounce Mann-O-Lure metal.
