Cape May
They’re here. Bluefin and yellowfin tuna arrived at the inshore lumps, said Capt. George from the Heavy Hitter. Anglers wait for this fishing, because the angling’s nearer to the coast than tuna fishing usually is. George couldn’t know how long the fish would stay, but they were here now. Bluefins 50 to 150 pounds and “some nice yellowfins,” he said, were caught. Mahi mahi were also boated in the waters. The fishing is 40 miles or farther from Cape May, at places like 19-Fathom Lump, 40 miles from the port, Massey’s Canyon, 40 or 42 miles from there, or the Hot Dog, 60 miles from the town. The fish currently swam in 20 to 30 fathoms. No trips fished aboard this weekend, because of weather. Closer to shore, summer flounder were decked from the ocean. Many were hooked that were just under the 18-inch size limit. A trip would land five or six keepers, or two, or maybe a dozen, among a bunch of throwbacks like that. Flounder fishing on the ocean, where the Heavy Hitter usually fishes for them, usually doesn’t become best until mid-July or so, when the water has warmed. The water was warming, though. Warm-water fish like triggerfish began to bite. Small bluefish hit at 5-Fathom Bank, where trips aboard troll for them. Telephone if interested in any of this fishing.
