We caught monster blues all day all around the boat ranging anywhere from 8-18 lbs. WE WILL RESUME OUR NORMAL SCHEDULE TOMORROW, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4TH, AT 7 30 A. M. Sailing daily for blues from 7 30 a. m. 2 30 p. m. and every Friday Saturday night from 7 30 p. m. 2 30 a. m With Miss Belmar's 3 engines and a total of 2,100 horsepower, she is the first boat to the fishing grounds every day and we guarantee it.
There were also lots of blues for surfcasters at Seaside Park and Island Beach State Park -- though those are small blues that hit consistently on mullet while also taking metal and poppers at times. Instead, I tried Sea Girt after high tide in the afternoon, and did nothing with metal into fishable surf -- though another angler released a 25-inch bass.
After a couple of days tied to the dock due to the weather it looks like we will be able to go fishing again. When we left the BIG BLUES ALBIE's on Tuesday the fishing was very good and I would expect it to continue.
That issue was number two among those to be considered in development of the Comprehensive Summer Flounder Amendment to the Summer Flounder, Scup and Black Sea Bass Management Plan by the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (MAFMC) and the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC). Capt. Joe Bogan, of Jamaica II at Brielle, is also awaiting reopening of the sea bass season on Oct. 18.
