Miss Belmar Princess

July 16, 2018:
With bluefish still doing a disappearing act, the week stared off on Monday aboard the Miss Belmar Princess with good sea bass action at mussel beds north of Shark River. Tuesday saw a good bite of sea bass and a mix of short and keeper fluke, while Wednesday's trip was a carbon copy of Tuesday's trip with good sea bass fishing and fluke to 6 pounds. Thursday and Friday also saw the same type of fishing. Several evening trips were also into a mix of sea bass and fluke.

    With bluefish being scarce Capt. Al Shinn decided to switch the Miss Belmar Princess over to bottom fishing on Monday putting fishermen into a good catch of sea bass, ling and some winter flounder. On Tuesday the bluefish drought continued however, limits of sea bass with some ling mixed in saved the day. Wednesday was a carbon copy. Finding no slammers the boat switched to bottom fishing for another good pull of knuckleheads with Stephen Kosisky from Harvey's Lake, PA taking the pool.

    Monday's trip aboard the Miss Belmar Princess found slow fishing to start the week. Capt. Al Shinn said on Tuesday the only place the boat could find blues was north of Shark River Inlet. After seeing slammers to 18 pounds last week the fishing turned around as slow since the weekend weather according to Al. On Wednesday the boat fished for fluke with the second annual Mark A. Virag Memorial Fund Fishing Trip. The group braved some choppy waters, but all a board enjoyed a good day of fishing. A Friday afternoon fluke tip caught a few short fluke and some throwback sea bass. Despite finding bluefish surface feeding on bunker the slammers were real picky and only a few fish were boated.

    At the dock of the Miss Belmar Princess Lindsey told me bluefishing was good most of the week, but slowed on Friday. She said it was a wide mix of sizes with some days seeing cocktail blues, while seeing big slammers to 15 pounds. Now that the sea bass season is shut down to July 1 the afternoon trips have been fishing for fluke and other bottom dwellers and finding the fluke fishing very spotty due of poor winds and cooler water temps. The boat did not sail on Saturday during to the conditions.

    At the dock of the Miss Belmar Princess Wendy told me bluefishing aboard the boat saw its ups and down this past week. Early week fishing was made up of plenty of 1- to 4-pound choppers. By Tuesday the fish got bigger but fewer with slammers in the 6- to 10-pound class coming over the rails. The blues disappeared later in the week and the boat switched to bottom fishing for some excellent catches of sea bass and ling, she said.
