Definitely, in the past couple of weeks, the charter vessels here have been bringing in all types of fish on the inshore trips; Wahoo, Dolphin, Spanish mackerel, Bluefish, Bonito, Fluke, even a needle gar or two have made their way to the scales. Many marina seasonal records have been broken in the last week. There was a Wahoo weighed in on 8/9 off the Noreaster II at 22lbs. and a Black Sea Bass also off the Noreaster II weighed 4.6lbs. on 8/7, and a 1.6lbs. Bonito off of the Cape Queen.
In offshore news, the Hooked Up II has been finding the Marlin. Nick Brebner age 16 from Tom River, NJ caught his first White Marlin last Sunday. He also released a white on the same trip. Over the Top out of South Jersey Marina spent their time reeling in Tuna on Friday in the tip of the Wilmington. For those not wanting to travel out to the Canyons, the Elephant Trunk has also seen some good action in the last few days with Dolphin and Tuna. Water temps are ranging from low to mid 70’s creating great conditions for the up coming Mid-Atlantic $500,000 Tournament.
