Barnegat Light
A 30-hour trip sailed for tuna Saturday to Sunday on the Miss Barnegat Light, the party boat’s website and Facebook page said. A good number of mahi mahi were axed Saturday afternoon, when the trip fished for them at lobster-pot buoys. “Some pots were duds and others were studs,” it said. At night, the boat was drifted off the Continental Shelf in 200 fathoms. Swordfish gave up some action the first half of the night. Three swords to 175 pounds were kept, and three small were released. Also at night, a 175-pound bigeye tuna and a 70-pound yellowfin tuna were bagged, and a few tuna runoffs were missed. At daybreak, tuna were marked, but no takers. Bait fished included live spots and squid and fresh squid, sardines and butterfish. Jigs were also fished. Tuna trips are fishing throughout the month, and telephone to reserve.
