2016 Fishing Season Posted 24 Nov, 2016 By Capt. Don Happy Thanksgiving to all our customers!Really want to thank all our regulars as well as our first time customers for a great 2016 fishing season out of Sandy Hook, NJ.
As long as the fish are here, we are going to continue fishing daily for stripers and blues from 7 00 a. m. 2 30 p. m. all through the month of December. With Miss Belmar's 3 engines and a total of 2,100 horsepower, she is the first boat to the fishing grounds every day and we guarantee it.
Many released a bass of about 22 pounds while jigging during the cold and windy morning off Sandy Hook, and weighed a 25-pounder from that area in just 22 feet late in the afternoon on a Tsunami Shad. Grumpy's Tackle in Seaside Park reported the Tuesday surf bite turned on late in the morning as many bass up to 38 inches were weighed in.
