***Update, Thursday, 1/11:*** Blackfishing sailed Saturday on the party boat Porgy IV on the ocean, and the catch was lousy, Capt. Paul said. So fishing will go on break aboard and will resume on April 1, sailing for blackfish again. Blackfish season will be opened beginning that day, after being closed throughout March. Saturday was a “slick-calm day,” he said, and the anchor couldn’t be kept tight. But the bottom line was that blackfish weren’t caught on the trip, he said. A keeper and some throwbacks were landed. Anglers wanted to blackfish Sunday aboard, but that wouldn’t have been worthwhile, Paul decided. The angling seemed to shut down inshore, at least near Cape May. None of the ocean is deep within 20 or 30 miles of the port. Small boats are running around blackfishing when weather’s good like that day. Those anglers didn’t seem to catch much. A party boat from Sea Isle City’s been blackfishing at the Deep Water Reef, Paul thought. But that’s 33 miles from Cape May.
