Up and down fishing today with lots of good size Porgy s and decent size Sea Bass coming up. We will start fishing for Blackfish on Thursday so there is only a couple of days left for us for Sea Bass and Porgy s!
The Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands reported marking plenty of bass, but the bite was way off from Saturday when the very cold weather reduced the fleet though it didn't really interfere with fishing for party boat anglers. The Angler from Atlantic Highlands had one drop fishing for porgies on Saturday, along with some tog on crabs and sea bass on both clams and crabs.

Ocean striper fishing improved greatly today, as it often does after a northwest blow, and a big fleet developed off the Monmouth Beach area where bass over 20 pounds were caught by those snagging-and-dropping bunkers. Capt. Rob Semkowitz called to report Raritan Bay striper fishing bounced back after Thursday's slump.
As the day went on it was a late bite and Captain Alan on the Royal Miss Belmar stopped on a big school of fish in the bunker and picked a few right away and then started moving to the south. With Miss Belmar s 3 engines and a total of 2,100 horsepower, she is the first boat to the fishing grounds every day and we guarantee it.
