Latest NJ Tuna Reports

  • 2017-04-28 Ristori Bay Head

    The Sea Hunter, Fishermen and Prowler 5 all reported good action with schoolies plus some keepers on bait. Though bluefishing has been good in Manasquan Inlet at times, Bob Correll of Bay Head said the Friday evening bite was off.
  • 2017-04-27 Ristori Bay Head

    Raritan Bay party boats have had a very hard time catching stripers on bait, but Capt. Rob Semkewyc had better news from his Sea Hunter out of Atlantic Highlands on Thursday morning when he finally had a good bite of mostly 24-to-27-inch shorts along with some keepers up to a 41-inch, 25-pounder boated by Jerry Gracos of Toms River. Remember that virtually all stripers over 20 pounds are females, and those being caught in Raritan Bay are from the Hudson stock that's been providing us with fine fishing the last few years while the coastal migratory stock from the Chesapeake and Delaware bays has spotty.

    We are getting the Bomb ready for launch in a few days. Yellowfin Marine Detailing just took care of the detail work, and we will be doing a few maintenance items over the next few days before we drop her in the water in anticipation of April 1 togging.
  • 2017-02-07 Ristori Bay Head

    Adam La Rosa reports the 48-foot Canyon Runner boated big bluefin tuna on its first trip. La Rosa offers to take military out on those trips at no charge.
  • 2016-12-22 Ristori Bay Head

    As usual, there is still good blackfishing not too far offshore and limits of jumbo sea bass on deep water wrecks -- but what's not at all usual is the abundance of large school bluefin tuna within center console range. Bob Matthews, at Fisherman's Den in Belmar Marina, has also heard about tuna action in the Mud Hole on popping plugs, while blackfishing is good in 70-to-90-foot depths (especially on whitelegger crabs) -- and winter flounder continue to hit baits cast from the docks into Shark River on incoming tide when waters are warmest.
  • 2016-11-02 Ristori Bay Head

    The Miss Belmar Princess reported a big change in fishing today, as stripers were scarce but jumbo bluefish moved in from the deep waters where they had been located to crash on bunkers inshore. Surfcasting in the Ocean County surf was poor again, and there weren't even any hopeful signs from the boats looking for bunkers.
  • 2016-10-23 Ristori Bay Head

    A few keeper Bass are starting to show up around the inlet this last week along with a few surprises. Boats fishing the Cape May Reef Thursday reported good numbers of sea bass released and quite a few nice porgies on the wrecks.

At Belmar, the Golden Eagle had a slow start with the jumbo blues, but ended up with a good catch to 19 pounds plus a couple of little tunny.
