We have had excellent fishing for the past week with lots of Porgies, a good number of Blackfish, plus a lot of government discard Seabass and Fluke. Average catches have been between 25-50 Porgies, with 1 Blackfish per man some days.
At Atlantic Highlands, Capt. Ron Santee said Thursday marked the seventh straight day of great porgy fishing along with blackfish and triggerfish. Jim Hutchinson Sr. reports that the Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association was well represented at last week's meeting of the New Jersey Marine Fisheries Council in Manahawkin.
The crew had a steady pick throughout the day on bait and jigs landing a total of 10 BFT (only keeping our legal limit) to 40 and 3 yellowfins up to 70 while busting off a few others on light leader.

The species that create great inshore angler interest at this time are either out of season (fluke sea bass) or greatly restricted (one blackfish a day), but bottom fishing action for porgies, triggerfish and that one tog has been great -- while chumming for bonito and chub mackerel provides fine surface action most days.
