Captain's Focus

The reappearance of striped bass and bluefish in the northern portion of the Shore is a pleasant surprise. Both the Sea Hunter and the Fishermen had a mixture of short, bonus and keeper bass today along with big blues. The more abundant bass and blues to the south moved further in that direction, but jigging was good. The Golden Eagle from Belmar had a mixture of shorts, bonus bass and keepers topped by a 41-incher. Blues were mixed in. Run-Off hammered jigs and Crocs plus swim shads were most effective. The Queen Mary from Point Pleasant had a mixture of bass sizes up to 32 inches, with a high hook of nine. Anglers reeling too fast caught blues. At Seaside Park, Betty & Nick's reported an unusual amount of blues up to 15 pounds in the park along with small bass. Grumpy's had a couple of weigh-ins Tuesday on bunker. Nick Honachefsky of Normandy Beach didn't find any repeat of yesterday's bass bite in his local surf, but managed two small ones before dawn. I tried the rough surf in Brick with metal, but got only one hit. Vinny D'Anton worked a lot of beach from Sea Girt to Spring Lake, and managed to release four small bass on a Tsunami Eel and a paddletail jig.
