Third Drift While making our way to the west, we went through a little area where the wind shifted from the northeast to the northwest, giving us optimal drifting conditions for the channel. Fourth Drift Paul Alesi jigged up a 6 pound fluke, and a few more keepers followed.
When things got right we hit the piece I wanted to fish, on the drift for 2 minutes and I see Javan Hemmel, West Milford, N. J. with his rod doubled over. Fran was back again today after taking yesterday's pool with his friends Dan and Amy, Both had big fish once again.
Fishing was a little better than yesterday, we had some nice fluke in the 3 lb. In the morning we had a nice drift and had action around the boat with keeper fluke and we cannot forget the short fluke .
Fishing started out excellent where we caught a couple of really good drifts and had some good shots of blues all around the boat in the 5-12 lb range. 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.
This morning we had some good BLUEFISHING with the 5 to 8 lb BLUES all on Hammer jigs Croc's. That fishing slowed down in the late morning so we took a shot and went to an area where we had seen bird life bait.
Anyone who's been near the surf the last couple of days was in for a shock as it was brutally cold after days of south winds. Fish rarely cooperate after such a shock, and to make things worse there was also weed in the Point Pleasant surf this morning.
