Due to a poor weather forecast, it's likely that most party boats will not sail on Thursday. The Golden Eagle from Belmar has cancelled for Thursday, though they had good fishing today for 2-to-8-pound blues along with some bonito, little tunny and porgies -- plus a Spanish mackerel.
We are still making two half day trips (8am to 12 30 and 1 30 to 6pm) everyday for porgies (weather permitting). The weather for tomorrow looks like wind and rain in the afternoon but we hope to get the morning trip in (watch the weather).
The Miss Belmar Princess is the largest, fastest and cleanest fishing boat in Belmar. 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.
It was 64 degrees in the Hudson and East rivers today, but even those high readings didn't slow the striper bite on sand worms, peanut bunkers and eels as the release count for Many and I by the evening on Ty Man from Gateway Marina in Highlands was 17 stripers (including 10 from 28 inches up to 26 pounds), six blues from about 3 pounds up to 30 inches, five weakfish from 22 to 24 inches, one porgy. At Belmar, the Golden Eagle had lots of blues from 2 to 10 pounds along with some bonito and little runny on both Run-Off Hammer jigs and bait.
