A couple of customers sailed for blackfish on the ocean last week, picking away, said Dennis from Hook House Bait & Tackle. The catches had slowed somewhat, and the trips had begun running farther from shore to deeper water and farther south. One boat was rumored to pick a few mackerel. Whether that was going to develop into a fishery was unknown, and no real mackerel run showed up within range of New Jersey’s recreational fleet in years. A few are always picked around this time. One customer was going to travel to fish for cod near Block Island. Dennis didn’t know the boat the angler was supposed to fish aboard. The store is open for no set hours, but if Dennis’s truck is there, the doors are open. He was at the shop a few hours each day recently. Sometimes the hours and also sales were being posted on the shop’s Facebook page. Killies, nightcrawlers and garden worms were stocked. The Facebook page last Tuesday said bloodworms were going to be carried soon.
