Posted on September 14, 2020 Last week of fluke season may be tough in swell With a 4-6-foot swell running, it hasn t been comfortable on the ocean the last couple of days and the outlook for the last week of fluking in N. J. is not good. Capt. Rpb Semkewyc ran his Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands out to the ocean this morning, but most of his fares couldn t handle the conditions.
The trip out wasn t bad with the wind behind us, and fishing was possible in a moderately rough ocean. The Thursday special bonito trip wasn t so special, though there were lots of chub mackerel at first along with some little tunny and Spanish mackerel.
Yet, Tom Hollywood Jr. of Staten Island has boated three doormats already at just 22 years of age all on Elaine B. II from Bahrs in Highlands. The late Capt. Stan Zagleski was very proud of Tom s accomplishments on his party boat, as he has been winning pools for many years and nothing has changed with Capt. Stan Zagleski Jr. at the helm since his father passed away before this season.
