especially around lunchtime but most of the day we had some keepers coming up. Some guys ended well with 3-4 nice keepers,some 1-2,some people had a tough day and only had shorts or maybe some sea bass but overall for a nice crowd we had some nice fish,pool fish was nice,about 8lbs.
The morning trip today was very good with a good amount of keepers and shorts. The afternoon was not as good the water was fine it was just that we had lots of wind,Definitely more then was in the forecast and the drift was extremely fast and that's not good.
, a small swell ,all good fishing conditions, too bad the fluke did not know it, they did not want to cooperate today, we moved around to different areas, overall we had some keepers and sea bass come aboard, the past couple of days we had big quality fluke come over the rail. But, today was a slower day of fishing, that means the fluke are still out there waiting for you.
We read them under the boat really well at times and we ended up catching 8-14 lb blues. 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.
We picked at the BIG BLUES today it seemed the fish would come in shots, where it was good fishing for a while then it would back off then it would be good fishing again. Thee BIG BLUES were in the 10 to 14lb range and it was more bait then jigs.
Following is Friday's Ristori Report as submitted SL8-15-14-RISTORI REPORTNEW YORK HARBOR TO RARITAN BAYSome large fluke continue to be caught in Raritan Bay whenever there's a decent drift. Bob Matthews, at Fisherman's Den in Belmar Marina, reports continued good fluking in Shark River, though most of the bigger fluke are being caught on rough bottoms in the ocean to the north.
Pool winner last Sunday was Mike Emers from Medford, NJ and high hook was Ray with 4 keepers and Teddy Alves had 2 in the box. Sunday looks like southwest winds at 10-15kts seas 3-4 in moderate chop with chance of showers.
