JUMBO PORGIES

Posted By Jim Hutchinson, Jr., February 4, 2019
JUMBO PORGIES
The Big Jamaica continues to sail every Saturday (weather permitting) to the offshore grounds where jumbo porgies have provided some of the best action for those along the rail.
As reported in our weekly video forecast last week, some party boats like the Big Jamaica heading to the offshore grounds are finding jumbo porgies to keep the rail gang satisfied. Many of the party and charter boats still on the hunt for Jersey and Delaware tautog indicate the cold snap seems to have slowed the bite, but a week of good, warm weather could improve the action and provide a few opportunities to score. In South Jersey the warming trend is leading folks to score bloodworms or live grass shrimp at local shops that remain open this time of year to head out for some white perch in the rivers and creeks. This weekend, you have a couple of fishing flea markets to take advantage of spring specials. The 4th Annual Sunshine Foundation Fishing Flea Market presented by the Southern Ocean County Chapter of the Sunshine Foundation will be held from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. on February 9 at the Little Egg Harbor Community Center, 319 W. Calabreeze Dr. in Little Egg Harbor ($3 admission). Call Tom Siciliano at 732-267-6451 or Frank Muinos at 908-380-8491. Up north, you have the Hi-Mar Fishing Flea Market & Seminar Series from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday at VFW Post 2179 on 1 Veterans Lane in Port Monmouth. Admission is $5 with kids 12 and under admitted free. Included in your admission are three great fishing seminars, with the Zagorski brothers spotlighting tautog, Fisher Price’s Capt. Derek Bielitz talking inshore tuna, and Anthony “Tony Maja Products” Arcabascio discussing trophy striped bass on the troll. Get more information at www.hi-mar.com. And be sure to join The Fisherman on Sunday, February 10 for the 22nd Annual Palmyra Fire Department Fishing Tackle Flea Market from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Charles Street School at 100 West Charles Street in Palmyra, NJ. Admission to the event is just $4. For information call John at 856-786-0718.

Got my first bass of 2019 while out on my kayak. It was 3lbs. and 17.25'' long. A quarter of the lake still had ice on it, but that is all gone know. Was fishing a lake in south jersey at the time.
