The ocean’s striped bass fishing really slowed, said Eric from The Reel Seat. A handful were still boated, and those who landed the fish trolled them near Sandy Hook. But the angling was slow. Sea bass fishing was the best inshore fishing, and sea bass season will close beginning Saturday. But the catches were good, including at Sea Girt Reef to Sandy Hook Reef, the Farms, wrecks along the edge of the Mudhole, and that whole area. Ling fishing was good at the Mudhole, and some winter flounder were hooked there. Fluke fishing was slow on the ocean. Eric wasn’t asked the reason, but the water temperature seemed to need to rise, and the season was early for the fishing. Axel Carlson Reef fished best for fluke on the ocean, if anglers wanted to fluke on the ocean. Offshore fishing for tuna was the big thing. Many tuna caught were reported from Toms Canyon this past week. Lots of yellowfin tuna 40 to 60 pounds were taken. Bluefin tuna 150 to 200 pounds came in, and so did bigeye tuna 100 to 200 pounds. A couple of mako sharks caught were reported from the area. The tuna were trolled on surface lures including spreader bars, Green Machines and bird chains. Bluefish 4 to 6 pounds schooled from Manasquan Inlet to Manasquan River at Route 70 Bridge. The river’s fluking was fair. Plenty of throwbacks held in the river, and keepers were picked.
