Two anglers Saturday jumped on one of the inshore shark trips aboard, releasing four browns, pulling the hooks on a couple of duskies, said Capt. Joe Hughes from Jersey Cape Guide Service and Sea Isle Bait & Tackle. That was on mackerel fillets, and Jersey Cape also fly-rods for the sharks. The catch-and-release trips, usually within 10 miles from shore, are a chance to fight a big catch without the long sail offshore. Some of the species that bite, including browns and duskies, are required to be let go. Joe with family on Saturday evening popper-plugged striped bass to 26 inches and 2-pound bluefish on the back bay. Fishing poppers for the bass, both lures and flies, is a specialty aboard this season, drawing explosive, visual attacks. The fishing’s best on high tides in evenings, and that was the tide on the trip. The tides are about to end, and they happen every two weeks. He and family earlier that day played throwback summer flounder on the bay. Joe heard nothing about offshore fishing for tuna in past days, but many anglers headed for the fishing today. Keep up with Joe’s fishing on Jersey Cape’s Blog.
