We picked away at the BIG BLUES in a nasty ocean today and we also added a decent catch of ALBIE's. The BIG BLUES ranged in size from 10 to 15lbs and we caught them on jigs bait with the bait seeming like it was working better.
Dolphin are being trolled at the Mud Hole pots, and there's often a mix of bonito, little tunny, Spanish mackerel and small dolphin for trolling at inshore lumps The reefs are usually a good bet for fluke, but a customer at Castaway's Tackle in Point Pleasant said the Axel Carlsen was almost devoid of life as he and his wife only caught three fluke without even all the usual nibbling of small sea bass. SOUTH JERSEY Jim Hutchinson Sr. reports for the Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association that local inshore reefs and wrecks are producing decent numbers of fluke and sea bass even though shorts dominate.
