Captain's Focus

The forecast yesterday indicated calmer weather today, but it was still choppy on the ocean -- though from the SE. The Queen Mary from Point Pleasant reported jigging was spotty as a 5-pound bonito won the pool and they picked away at small blues plus mackerel. The Capt. Bobby Bogan of the Gambler from Point Pleasant said fluking has been slow since the northeaster. He even tried off in 116 feet, but found almost all shorts out there. His first canyon trip well be on Oct. 24, and there's still room on it.  At Brielle, the Jamaica reported excellent Friday night blues up to 15 pounds on bait. Jamica II had a new monthly fluke leader the Friday before last when Ed Nolan of Manasquan boated a 9.2-pounder. Al Hreowsik of Middletown found limits of fluke up to 5 pounds off the tip of the Hook on Thursday for Roy Machicoll of Piscataway and Les Soyak from Fords on his Rosie Jay. Prospects in the surf have improved with the mullet run, but it didn't do me any good at Bay Head this morning as the surf was full of weed as well as being rough. It's supposed to calm down tomorrow -- we'll see. Joe Melillo, at Castaway's Tackle in Point Pleasant, had some surf striper activity to report on Friday. Bob Longo of Brick brought in an 11.4-pound bass plugged at Point Pleasant. where John Longo of Brick added a 12-pounder. Mickey Sweeney of Howell used sand fleas for an 11-pounder. At Seaside Park, Grumpy's Tackle reports good surf fluking plus lots of small blues on mullet and metal.
