5/15/14 Belmar Fishing for striped bass was okay on the ocean on the party boat Big Mohawk, on some days, when bunker could be snagged to liveline for bait, Capt. Chris said. Lots of bluefish now swam the waters, and they could be a nuisance when trying to catch stripers. Daily trips, sailing 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., will fish for stripers through the weekend, and will switch to sea bass on Monday, opening day of sea bass season. The trips will run for fluke and sea bass when fluke season is opened next week on Friday. Limits of bluefish 5 to 12 pounds were the norm on Wednesday’s trip, very good fishing, on the party boat Golden Eagle, a report said on the vessel’s website said. The anglers were in catch and release mode by late morning, and 4-ounce Run Off hammered jigs and 5- and 7-ounce, gold Krocodiles caught the fish. On Tuesday’s trip, blues 4 to 10 pounds, good fishing for them, and some striped bass to a 25-pounder were plowed, all on the Run Offs and Krocs. Lots of fish seemed to swim the area, and the Golden Eagle is fishing at 7:30 a.m. daily.
