Since it s also possible to fish in partially protected areas, some boats may also get back into action tomorrow. There were no boat reports today, but the Ocean Explorer from Belmar had an unusual blackfish report from Sunday when the tog bite actually improved as it got rougher by late morning.
The seas became a little nasty and it was getting uglier as the trip went on. I gave everyone a discount for next trip and told them to come back when they could actually enjoy themselves, and we docked at 11 45.

Went searching for life starting off with a few shorts found some fish later in the morning landing a few keepers and keeping the rods bent with a bunch of shorts for the boys. Fun bunch of guys on a beautiful day, wish we had more keepers!
At Belmar, the Golden Eagle reported incredible bird action and fish on top, but boat traffic was outrageous and only a few bass and blues were boated. Mike Monte caught a couple of school bass on a Tsunami Sand Eel and missed others early at Belmar despite low water conditions.
Posted on November 20, 2020 Mixed results on stripers in SW wind The Golden Eagle from Belmar reported that the weatherman was right about today being sunny and warm but the southwest wind blew a lot harder than expected. They did get a few slots and a couple of bigger bass up to 36 inches.
Jerry Lasko said he got into a mini-blitz on an Ocean County beach yesterday morning as stripers were working on bunkers larger than peanuts and smaller than adults. Nick Honachefsky went back to the beach in the evening to release 33 from 24-29 inches on a black Bomber and was into them again this morning.
