Posted on October 4, 2021 Bluefishing was better at night The Golden Eagle from Belmar had a fine Saturday night bluefish trip with a boat limit, yet the choppers were fussy again in the morning even though some were splashing and others following up hooked fish. That boat is tuna fishing Monday, but will be back to blues on Tuesday.
Posted on October 3, 2021 Huge waves hit Jersey beaches this afternoon Vinny D Anton checked the Monmouth County surf this afternoon and reported that surfers were having a great time in waves from an offshore storm that were as high as 15 feet. Vinny was fishing further north and spotted some fish chasing mullet which resulted in two bass and a blue releas ed.
There was good news from the Golden Eagle out of Belmar as 4-10-pound blues were hitting jigs and provided a boat limit. They also had a lot of porgies and released many sea bass while whales provided a show around the boat.
However, Vinny did hit it right further north this morning as 6-pound blues chased bait to the beach and hit poppers. The bluefin tuna bite off the Rockaways continues as noted by N. Y. skipper John McMurray on Facebook as follows A solid 70 fish for the Oceanside Boys yesterday, in some not-so-nice conditions.
Posted on September 26, 2021 Inshore bluefin bite continues Even the weekend crowd didn t seem to scare off the big bluefin tuna at the Rockaways as N. Y. striper pro Joe Balzamo not only caught one on his boat but then went out on a friend s for another. That boat will be on a canyon tuna trip tomorrow.
Vinny D Anton tried the Monmouth County surf this afternoon and found clear waters plus a school of mullet. Unfortunately there weren t any stripers on that bait, but Vinny switched to Gulp and started releasing small fluke just as had been the case before the season closed.
