08 23 14 With the gusty east wind the past couple of days along with an outgoing tide, finding a drift has been difficult to say the least. We have had most of our fish early in the mornings with short action and a couple of handfuls of keepers each day.
8-23-14 A pretty quick drift most of the day today,made the conditions tough for us,breeze was never that bad but along with the current it hurt us a little. range,High hook did have three keeper fluke,the pool winner had two but overall a tough day for most.
A LITTLE WIND OUT OF THE EAST FIRST THING THIS MORNING, BUT IT DROPPED OFF AND IT TURNED OUT TO BE A BEAUTIFUL DAY. TOMORROW MORNING SHOULD BE A LIGHT BREEZE OUT OF THE EAST, BUT I DONT SEE IT AS A PROBLEM RIGHT NOW.
We would like to thank all of our loyal patrons and let all kids, 14 and under, fish for free on the Miss Belmar Princess now through Friday, September 5th, 2014, when accompanied by a full paying adult. 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.
Several boats weighed in white marlin up to 72 pounds, but weren't close to the two 80-pounders taken yesterday on Billfisher for second and third. Betty Nick's in Seaside Park heard from a customer who said there was some grass in the Island Beach State Park surf, but caught several small blues and a short striper on bait at the north end.
We also had to deal with a quick drift as well,made it a little tough for some of the customers today,we caught a few nice fish,pool fish went about 7lbs,a few others 3-5lbs. but in the end it could have been better conditions wise(very quick drift) and some went home with some nice fish but not enough did in my book.
July 11, 2014Greg, Rocco, Greg, Shawn, Traci, and Tom were aboard today for an open boat fluke trip and fishing was good. The guys had a great time catching fluke throughout the trip with 20 keepers making the box and once again a number of beautiful fish in the 3 to 5 pound range coming over the rail and Greg getting the trip's biggest at 7 pounds.
