Atlantic Highlands blackfishing December 5 05 December 2016 Capt. Tom The light rain in the morning kept most of the people away but we made our 3 4 day blackfishing trip today. The weather for tomorrow looks ok with a chance of rain late in the day so come on down we'll be there.
The bite you really couldn't feel very well due to the fact that 25- to 30-knot wind was whipping through your line, and the fact that the 4- to 6-foot chop with 3-second intervals was beating the boat around like a washing machine, and also with only a handful of fishermen, it was the best trip of the fall blackfish season. The weather was perfect, anchoring conditions were good, the small fish were there, but only a handful of keepers.
It appears there were very few waterproof anglers around this morning, but Miss Belmar Princess got into a good early bite of stripers and blues that resulted in 30 fish aboard by lunch time. Jerry Lasko of Point Pleasant released a few 18-to-20-inch stripers on the black Mambo Minnow in the dark this morning at Bay Head.
