On the afternoon trip we started in the channel and we were able to catch a few fluke till a couple of ships came and that put an end to the action. Most of the fluke were shorts but everyone caught and by the end of the trip we caught a few keepers.
The NJ DEP has announced that beach vehicles will be prohibited from a portion of Island Beach State Park from the A23 entrance to the jetty as of Thursday due to piping plover nesting. The south winds that have been blowing every evening lately have driven the surf water temperature down.
We fished the Poormans Canyon along with lots of other boats but started way south from the main fleet and had real good action but again lots of short Yellowfin with some Mahi-Mahi and skippies in the mix. Most charter boats had their two overs but were having a hard time finding an under so these are not little football size BFT s. Overall some pretty good inshore BFT fishing going on about 40-50 miles from our dock and plan on running our first inshore BFT trip on Wednesday then the remaining trips this week we will be back to the canyon targeting Yellowfins and Big Eyes but we can always stop for BFT on the way home if our customers want a shot jigging or trolling for them.
