FROM SPRING THROUGH FALL
Cape May
The season’s fishing was wrapped up Thursday with a trip for blackfish on the ocean with Fishin’ Fever Sportfishing, Capt. Tom said. Springtime fishing for drum, sea bass, summer flounder, tuna and tilefish is being booked. The blackfishing aboard was pretty good. The final trip cranked in 29 keepers to 15 pounds, and a trip the day before tugged up 22 keepers to 15 pounds. Tom discontinued the trips because of a transmission issue, and who knows what the severe cold that now arrived was going to do to the angling, he said. Cape May was forecast to be 15 degrees today.

Capt. George from the Heavy Hitter had no news, he said. News was quiet throughout last week about fishing. He might still fish on a friend’s boat for tilefish or sea bass, if sea bass season is opened in February. Some anglers thought sea bass season will be, but that’s unconfirmed. The Heavy Hitter is finished fishing for winter, but George might still fish on the boat of a friend who’d like to sail for tiles or sea bass.
