Sea Isle City
The year’s final, annual traveling trips to Montauk fished this weekend aboard, said Capt. Joe Hughes from Jersey Cape Guide Service and Sea Isle Bait & Tackle. False albacore fishing was great. Saturday’s trip landed more than 30, and Sunday’s trip fished only a couple of hours, but fought 10 to 15 aboard. That angling was also stellar. No bluefish were mixed in, but they were sometimes in previous weeks. Other boats sometimes fished for striped bass this weekend from the port, mostly eeling for the fish. Most caught one if lucky, and striper fishing was underwhelming this season from there. The next traveling charters will be annual ones to the Florida Keys from Christmas to Easter. See the traveling charters page on Jersey Cape’s website. Joe will concentrate on fishing from Sea Isle City now. Trips for striped bass and bluefish will fish the ocean in November. Trips can fish for smaller stripers in the back bay right now. Sea bass fishing can sail aboard beginning Sunday, opening day of sea bass season. During the past couple of years, albie fishing turned on from October’s final week to November’s aboard the ocean off Sea Isle, so that might develop. Keep up with Joe’s fishing on Jersey Cape’s Blog.
