On the Norma-K III, fluke fishing on the ocean is improving, when conditions are right, a report said on the party boat’s website. Saturday afternoon’s fluking was decent aboard. The angling was good on Sunday morning. In the afternoon, fewer keepers bit. But anglers who worked Spros or bucktails caught better on the outing. The water is up to 68 degrees, so the fishing should keep improving now. On nighttime trips, bluefishing was tough this weekend. A few small were nabbed, and the crew hopes that the small blues will school up by this weekend. This could be a start to the fishing. Trips are fishing for fluke 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2 to 6:30 p.m. daily and blues 7:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. every Friday and Saturday. Moonlight cruises will sail at 8 p.m. every Thursday beginning June 28. Reservations are being taken for a Fourth of July cruise to watch fireworks.

Some decent success was scored on fluke trips on the ocean on the Gambler in past days, a report said on the party boat’s website. Sea bass also spiced up catches. Friday afternoon’s trip fished best, serving up a good number of limits of fluke. Quite a few keepers to 6 pounds were hung on that outing. A 7-1/2-pound fluke won the pool on Sunday morning. A 7.9-pounder was axed this morning. The fish was one of two keepers for the angler. Striped bass fishing was slow on nighttime trips that were sailing for them Fridays and Saturdays. So night trips will now fish for bluefish, ling, sea bass or whatever bites on those nights. Wreck-fishing trips are sailing on Thursday nights. Last Friday and Saturday nights’ striper fishing was slow, so after the trips tried for them at first, the trips switched to bottom-fishing. The bottom-fishing was slow Friday night but lit up Saturday night for good catches of ling, medium-sized to big, and a few sea bass. Customers had a great time on the beautiful night. Trips are fishing for fluke 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2 to 6:30 p.m. daily. Wreck trips are sailing 7:30 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursdays, and trips for bluefish, sea bass, ling or whatever bites are running Fridays and Saturdays during those hours. Shark in the Dark Trips will begin July 1.
