FISHING LOGS: New Jersey & Delaware Bay
Central New Jersey


Posted By Karen Wall, October 2, 2017
Patrons aboard the Paramount had an awesome day of bonito and false albacore on Sunday, with a dozen or so bluefish as well as a couple dozen mackerel. As the captain reported, “most everyone focused on the bonito and albacore all day.”
 Blackfish are continuing to help anglers pass the time as they wait for the ocean to settle down from the string of hurricanes. The shift in the weather that everyone has been hoping for seems to have arrived at last and there are sporadic reports of bait spraying and bluefish in the wash. Schoolie stripers are in the back and providing action for those who enjoy catch and release. It sounds like it’s just a matter of time before they’ll be playing with the big fish out front. While much of the party boat fleet out of Manasquan and Barnegat is on the hunt for porgies farther north, some are on bottom variety including winter flounder, ling and cod, others head offshore to the tuna grounds in good weather windows, and a few boats like the 100-foot Paramount are still hitting the false albacore and bonito on the lumps and ridges.
