The Golden Eagle from Belmar looked for blues on Sunday, but only found a few small ones before shifting to good action with sea bass and some legal fluke. I caught a small bass on a Z Man jig on my first cast, and added another small one later.
The easterly wind kept us in Sandy Hook Bay where we were able to pick shorts and a few keepers on both trips. The weather for tomorrow is for easterly winds 25 to 30 knots with possible gust to 35 knots.

8-27-17 Once again the week before the full moon its producing large fluke,Today again we had big quality fish including a whopper that went 12lbs. but with the moon coming up all the big fish are on the move and I dont think this is the only big fish we are going to see in the next week.
Fluke fishing in the ocean has been the best of the year recently, and doormats are finally becoming more common. Mike Holodinski of Hillsboro boated an 11 1 2-pounder that took the pool, but not before he got a scare when Paul Schduckalo caught a 10 1 2-pound doormat.
That started to slow up so we hit the ocean channels and they are finally holding some fish in our range for the half day trips. Unfortunately now we are going to have a few days of hard East North East winds that will keep us out of the ocean.
Don Jr. put on a clinic fishing in the stern also with Six nice fish and Sea Bass in the Box. Several other great fish around the boat along with the Big Sea Bass once again with June Sal combining for a nice rack of fish.
