You won't see John De Bona's name in the results, as we experienced poor fishing at several spots from Ambrose to Jamaica Bay We fished with David Schnall of Montville on his 28-foot Regulator from Gateway Marina in Highlands, along with Rich Dunn of Brick and Austin Perelli from Brooklyn. Very few fluke were coming into the Gateway Marina weigh-in, but the one at Jersey City had a late spurt with good fluke catches coming in from nearby areas in Hudson River -- which also produced an early doormat.
8-5-16 Nice day to start but not as good of a chew like we had yesterday,high hook did have 4 nice keepers but overall not as many keepers as yesterday to go around. but either way it was a nice day out.

Joe Melillo, at Castaways Tackle in Point Pleasant, said boaters did very well with fluke Thursday in Manasquan River. Tank Matraxia joined a friend from Lyndhurst on his trailered boat Thursday as they caught seven keeper fluke up to 22 inches between Shewsbury River and Ambrose Channel.
