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.
Capt. Rob Semkewyc of the Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands even ran out to reports of bunker schools in the ocean in hopes of finding very big bass, but only a few bass were caught before he returned for the ebb. Even Point Pleasant Canal was strangely quiet as I often retrieved a large sandworm without a hit, but eventually released a 14 1 2-inch blackfish and one other plus two small sea bass on the morning slack.
We went to the area where we had good fishing before yesterdays weather and only caught a few porgies, a lot of shorts seabass and a couple of blackfish. Our schedule will stay the same, 3 4 day bottom fishing for seabass porgies and blackfish leaving at 7 30 and returning between 2 30 and3pm.
Captain Fran Verdi of the Francesca Marie has experienced several good years in a row putting his anglers on striped bass.

Gail warning with NW wind to 35 knots against an incoming tide most of the day is beyond Fishing in the Snot so we won't be shaping up Friday morning. Never got the bite today, even after we were into 2 1 2 hours of the tide.
