Water temps rising!

Fishing is heating up here in Cape May and so are the offshore water temps! Water temperatures from the South Poorman’s to the Washington are up to approximately 80 degrees creating a good fishing environment. Big Eye tuna have made their presence known, as well as white marlin, some blue marlin and dolphin. We’ve had all of our charter boats fishing in the past week, offshore and inshore. Our party boats here on the dock have been on top of the flounder spots for the past few days, just yesterday (6-22) the Porgy IV came in with 31 keeper flounder. In offshore news, the Hooked Up II caught and released 2 white marlin, had a blue up and saw some dolphin. The Judge pulled in 2 nice tuna and Raging Bull had a few white marlin bites.
