There was some good news from the surf this morning, as Vinnie D'Anton of Wall found a school of mullet at Belmar and lost a keeper-size striper on a Chug Bug before landing a 33-incher that weighed 11 5 8 pounds at Fisherman's Den in Belmar Marina. Five short tog were also caught from among the many small sea bass during the brief period of relatively slack current.
Atlantic Highlandfs porgy fishing Octomber 1 01 October 2017 Capt. Tom Made both morning and afternoon trips again today. We are half day fishing everyday making two trips (8am to 12 30 and 1 30 to 6pm).
The Miss Belmar Princess is the largest, fastest and cleanest fishing boat in Belmar. 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.
The Ocean Explorer from Belmar reported fine porgy fishing and some blackfish despite a large ground swell. As the current slowed, I switched to casting sandworms on light spinning for a good blackfish bite that produced releases of 10 short tog up to 14 1 2 inches from among numerous very small sea bass.
