Sea Bass were flying at most spots....weeding through small fish we had some really nice jumbos coming up.,,,some guys as usual did well catching a limit easy along with some nice ling mixed in to spice up the catch.
At Belmar, the Big Mohawk will be making a Monday fluke trip from 6 a. m. to 2 p. m. Capt. John Kolias took the Roy Runyak party down the beach to Shrewsbury Rocks on Saturday aboard his Reel Fun from Twin Lights Marina in Highlands, but the reports of stripers there that he had heard about didn't pan out.
We've had some tough weather over the last week and a half with wind and rain, but we had some decent drum fishing last week, and we were really happy to have the sea bass season open on Friday, May 26. We plan to continue to fish for sea bass until the fluke bite turns on once the water gets a bit warmer!
Capt. Tom Made both morning and afternoon trips again today but the action was not as good. We fished a lot of different areas in Sandy Hook Bay. Everywhere we went we caught some shorts but not many keeper fluke.
