Rain poured torrentially Sunday, but some boats fished through squalls, said Capt. Mike from Celtic Stoirm Charters. Some caught fluke on the ocean, and Mike wouldn’t say the ocean fluking’s been hot, but it’s been improving. Some of the trips only bagged sea bass. Tuna fishing seemed to catch on some trips and not on others. It seemed that anglers had to find or run into the fish.

The Miss Belmar Princess was anchored at mussel beds in the ocean off Shark River Inlet on Monday afternoon’s trip, an email said from the party boat. Conditions were poor, but many of the anglers limited out on two sea bass apiece and bagged some ling. Lots of sizable fish swam the area. On the next day, Tuesday, the morning trip lit into excellent sea bassing, then did some fluking. Shorts and keepers gave up action. Great fishing on the trip. On the afternoon’s trip, fishing was slower than recently but still good for sea bass. On Wednesday morning’s trip, fishing for sea bass was excellent, and all anglers limited on them. Toward the end, the trip pulled into the beach and landed a couple of keeper fluke and some shorts. A 6-pound fluke won the pool. Trips are fishing 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. daily.

Plenty of sea bass, some fluke and ling and a couple of mackerel were pasted Saturday on the Golden Eagle on the ocean, a report said on the party boat’s website. The trip spent time trying to get after mackerel, but they wouldn’t bite much, so the fishing returned to sea bass. On Sunday’s trip, excellent sea bassing was crushed. The anglers limited out easily, and occasionally hooked small bluefish. Trips are fishing 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. daily.
