Also at Belmar Marina, Bob Matthews reports from Fisherman's Den that Brian Kean of Yardley, Pa. had a 4 1 4-pound fluke over the weekend from a rental boat, while Tom Mibail from Newton boated fluke of 3 and 6 1 2 pounds from a rental. Capt. Ryan Bogan said he had good fluking last week on Jamaica II from Brielle, but it was slower over the weekend -- especially in Sunday's strong current.
The fishing is still sluggish due to the bottom temp only being in the low 50's (actually, it was 54 degrees at 65-80 ft. ) But that didn't stop Michael Doughty of Toms River, NJ, who won the pool with a 2-lb fluke and Mark Letendre of Massachusetts, who won also with a 2. 8-lb sea bass and Slick Rick of Ocean Acres, NJ, won with a big 3-lb ling.
Capt JB at the helm today reported more of the same HOT ACTION Boat was in almost 2 hours early as boat limit was achieved early and people were tired of releasing. Grab the kids and get them hooked on fishing
