The Golden Eagle from Belmar had to cancel their tuna trip due to the weather, but has added an 18-hour tuna sailing on Tuesday, Oct. 20 at 11 p. m. Miss Belmar Princess will make their daily bluefish trip tomorrow. The Jamaica from Brielle has three spots open at the last minute for the 7 p. m. offshore tuna trip with a 335 fare.
I had a few guys over the weekend whos rod could barely bring up a 8oz sinker. The current will be fast and you will need the heavy sinkers, Please call for reservations or if you prefer using a credit card you can book a ticket under schedule and fares.
Posted on October 12, 2020 Good conditions for Beach Brawl Nick Honachefsky got lucky with his second annual Barrier Island Beach Brawl as there was a nice weekend for surfcasting before a blowout Monday. Chuck Many did find a few large migratory stripers that hit his trolled eels a few days ago, Bob Matthews, at Fisherman s Den in Belmar Marina, is looking for an improvement in slow surfcasting after the storm, and notes that kingfish are still biting in Shark River.
The Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands had decent Saturday morning fishing for porgies and mostly small sea bass, but also some excitement when a fare cast a swim shad at a passing school of bunkers and hooked a striper before the hook pulled. Dan Brodzinski tried the surf yesterday morning at Sea Bright and Sandy Hook with no action at all though there were big schools of bunkers offshore.
