Default New Jersey Party Boat report

Capt. John Brackett, skipper of the Queen Mary out of Point Pleasant Beach, plans to continue fishing for bass acccording to the Asbury Park press.

"We had 70 stripers on Tuesday, 73 on Thanksgiving Day and 35 today " he said Friday. "I'm going to keep fishing for them as long as the weather holds and we have fish."

Brackett packed it in three days after the turkey was sliced last year. He caught and released 90 shorts on Thanksgiving Day, and one short and nine keepers that Sunday.

"It's different this year," he said. "The weather is nice, the fish are there, and we'll fish through Dec. 5. If the weather stays that way, and the people want to go, we'll fish the following week."

Brackett said most of the action has been on A-27s without tails or on Krocodiles.

"The bass run anywhere from 22 to 40 inches, though there aren't many that measure 40 inches," he said. "There are some between 28 and less than 34 inches, we still have some bonus tags. There are a lot of slots and smaller fish."

He has been fishing along the beach as far south as Island Beach State Park, drifting in 30 feet of water. Friday he went as far as two miles south of the Seaside piers.

"You read the fish on the bottom, and there are still lots of blues around," he said. "The blues run anywhere from 4 to 8 pounds."

"It's a little ride down to the fish, but it's worth it," Brackett said. "The water temperature is 49.8 degrees and there are tons of bait around."

The fleet totaled about a half-dozen boats Thursday, but there were more than 50 on the grounds Friday. Fishing was better earlier in the day than it was in the afternoon.

Bob Matthews of Capt. Bill's Bait and Tackle, Neptune, said live eels are producing stripers on the Shrewsbury Rocks. Charles Fiorillo, Wall, and Charles Wardell, Neptune, caught six bass to 28 pounds on eels.
Capt. Dan Seich, Teal, Atlantic Highlands, reminds that he fishes for striped bass at night throughout the season, and there has been plenty of action this week.
Seich said he is sailing from 6:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays. The boat sails for bluefish Friday and Saturday nights, and the fishing for blues has been excellent.
Capt. Scott Hilliard, Prowler 5, Atlantic Highlands, said fluke fishing has been good during the day and fishing for blues has been good at night, but the boat will be tied up from July 19 through July 22 for engine maintenance.
Capt. Bob Bogan Jr., Gambler, Point Pleasant Beach, said he switched from the fluke grounds north of Shark River Inlet to the hills and patches of rocks southeast of Manasquan Inlet.
Bob Swerida, Wall, and his daughter, Rebecca, fished on the Royal Miss Belmar this week, and caught fluke all day. Most of the fish were undersized, but Rebecca caught four keepers up to a 5-pound pool winner.
Capt. Jimmy Elliott, skipper of the Miss Belmar Princess, Belmar, tried the Mud Buoy area for bluefish Wednesday, and found plenty of 2- to 5-pound fish there. Prior to that he had good fishing on the east side of the Mud Hole with fish running anywhere from 3 to 12 pounds.
Capt. Willie Egerter III, Dauntless, Point Pleasant Beach, said the departure of the spiny dogfish has opened up an improved bottom fishery with a better showing of sea bass and a lot more ling.
"We're fishing the deeper water for the ling, and the average person has 10 to 20 nice ling," he said.
