Each time I thought that I should go looking the action would pick up and so by day's end the boat was 1 shy of it's limit and all went home with some nice fillets.All in all, it was a good day with a fun bunch of folks.
A bunch of our die hard blackfishermen have been asking if we are going to do any togging before the season closes next week so we are going to do a couple of special trips this weekend. WE WILL BE SAILING FOR BLACKFISH AT 7AM THIS COMING SATURDAY APRIL 26 AND SUNDAY APRIL 27 We will have clams and green crabs onboard.
The SEA STAR III is attempting to sail 6 Hour trips DAILY at 9 AM and will continue to do so until sometime in December. As usual I will update this report Every week even if the reports are not favorable.
SUNDAY, APRIL 19 UPDATE NEW SAILING TIME 7 30 AM 1 PM FARE 50 Senior 45 Child under 12 yrs 30 NOT SAILING TOMORROW, MONDAY, AS THE FORECAST IS FOR WIND AND RAIN. WE WILL SEE HOW TUESDAY SHAPES UP. We had a slow start in the morning, but did get some action on the shorts, just could not put a keeper in the boat.
Though the main focus has been on clamming for stripers in Raritan Bay, and both live bunkers and trolling Stretch plugs have also been producing bass, Dave Lilly of Hazlet found Tony Maja medium bunker spoons were even more effective Saturday afternoon as he trolled limits of bass over 20 pounds in the back of the bay.At Fisherman's Den in Belmar Marina, Bob Matthews reports improved winter flounder fishing, while some legal blackfish are being caught in Point Pleasant Canal.
