Miss Barnegat Light

November 13, 2017:
The Miss Barnegat Light got into the striped bass over the weekend. There was a ton of boat traffic that made things more difficult but fish were caught and there were some nice ones, they said, with snagged bunker very productive. The strong northwest winds finally kicked things into gear.

    The Miss Barnegat Light got into huge bluefish, with blues from 17 to 22 pounds that were caught on RunOff jigs. The bluefish have been a good diversion while waiting for the stripers to move into range. On Saturday the wind was too wicked and they were kept closer to shore, picking up small bluefish up to 2 pounds and sea bass from some of the local wrecks. They are fishing weekends.

    The Miss Barnegat Light closed out its offshore season with a trip where the tuna weren't cooperative but they did manage to put plenty of mahi in the boat so folks didn't go home empty handed. The tuna fishing was not what they hoped and they are hoping 2018 yields a better offshore season. They will be focusing on striped bass and bluefish starting this weekend, with both jigging and fishing snagged bunker will be the methods.

    The Miss Barnegat Light was offshore fishing for tuna. The previous trip was decent with a good amount of mahi. They drifted in 200 fathoms and caught swordfish with three keepers to 175 pounds and some nice tuna, including a 175-pound bigeye and a 70-pound yellowfin. Most of the tuna were finicky, however, and ignored both bait of all varieties and ignored jigs as well.

    The Miss Barnegat Light had a solid trip to the canyon before the bad weather, with plenty of squid around the boat and tuna cruising through. The tuna included a 100-pound bigeye, a few yellowfin and a few shark bite-offs, and plenty of mahi to put meat in the coolers.
