Barnegat Light
The Miss Barnegat Light hardly drifted on Saturday’s trip for fluke and sea bass on the ocean, the party boat’s Facebook page said. The drift was better on Sunday’s trip, so the fishing was better. The fish were picked, a report said on the vessel’s website. The angling should continue to improve as the ocean warms, and trips are fishing for fluke and sea bass 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily. Sunset cruises are departing at 7 p.m. daily, returning a little after sunset, approximately at 8:40 p.m.

Trips sea bassed this weekend on the Super Chic on the ocean, Capt. Ted said. The fishing was okay, hooking lots of shorts, but enough keepers to make the angling worthwhile. Lot of shorts. One of the two trips bluefished half the time, near port, jigging the blues. That angling was good. The water on the sea bass grounds was in the mid-60 degrees to, at most places, warmer. Weather was so calm throughout the weekend, and the sun warmed the ocean. Ted is probably going to schedule two open-boat trips for tuna on July 4 and the following weekend. Those will be announced on the boat’s Facebook page and website. Tuna fishing was super in the past week to 10 days. Hopefully it’ll just get better. Yellowfin tuna, some bigeye tuna and large bluefin tuna scattered in were hooked all the way offshore. Boaters sharking closer to shore also saw bluefins. That was 40 miles out.
