    We went out at about 10 30 a. m., and had lots of action, but just as other experts had assured Many there were no stripers -- until a last effort when my sand worms were left alone long enough by bluefish and I reeled a bass of about 30 inches alongside, where Many removed the circle hook barely in its lip in the water for the release at 7 p. m. During late morning, Many worked some of his favorite summer spots in Raritan Bay which produced dogfish and small sea bass before he spotted a couple of breaks.

    The recent White Marlin Open at Ocean City, Md. was blessed with perfect canyon fishing weather and record white marlin fishing and the MidAtlantic ended last Friday night at that satellite port plus the main port in Cape May after being equally blessed. Though blasted the first day with a northwest wind, it was calm seas and hot white marlin fishing for the rest of the week.

    The Queen Mary from Point Pleasant also reported getting into good bluefishing today for the first time since early July. I caught the size bluefish we used to find in the ocean in other summers, but there was just one 30-incher (about 8 pounds) that hit my Tactical Anglers Bomb Jr. popper in Shark River.

    Big swells are usually bad news for ocean bottom fishing, and today was no exception to that rule for Capt. Hans Kaspersetz while hosting Tank Matraxia's party from Lyndhurst for a half-day trip on Sheri Berri from Twin Lights Marina in Highlands. Kaspersetz worked rough bottoms east of Sandy Hook that had been producing for him, but it was a tough pick today as five fluke were boated along with two sea bass and a ling while Matraxia placed American Littoral Society tags into 15 of the short fluke.

    Matt Slobodjian at Jim's Tackle in Cape May reports as follows This week was just about the same as last week, a good number of keeper fluke on the reefs and the Old Grounds. In the next few weeks, if we get a good cold front, the mullet should start moving out of the back and get things going in the surf.

    Shore fishing conditions looked good this morning in Shark River, but I only had one hit on a popper -- and it shook the hooks. Capt. Tommy Joseph reports porgy fishing is still very good on his Rightaway III from Shark River.

    The first weigh-in of the final day of the 25th MidAtlantic at Cape May and Ocean City, Md. was by far the biggest of the week -- a 754-pound blue marlin on Easy Rider. Phil Silvester from Harrison later managed to catch four small blues on a paddletail jig, and Vinny D'Anton of Shark River Hills nailed a small blue on an SP Minnow before I finally hooked one of those 3-pounders on the popper.

    Day 4 of the MidAtlantic was another beautiful one, and lots of fish were trolled in the canyons -- but there was surprisingly little change in the major categories among the 131 boats fishing. That left the first day's 76-pounder on Reelin Feelin in third behind the two large bigeyes.
