“I caught an albacore tuna off the North Shore in Sandy Hook today on a purple epoxy jig,” said Aaron Smookler. Looks like the little tunny run is on!
Striped bass fishing continues to build in the lower Hudson and Raritan Bay. However, so far only the mullet have started to move out of the rivers and bays. Most of the bigger bass are being caught in New York Harbor and in the lower bay after dark by boat fishermen. Where they came from is anyone’s guess but there have been decent amounts of weakfish mixing in with the stripers and blues in some places. The numbers of bluefish are also building with choppers to 7 pounds homing in on the schools of bunker. Albies are also being caught in good numbers by anglers targeting them. On the bottom fishing front porgy fishing has remained super and ling fishing has been decent with some leftover triggerfish, mackerel and plenty of one fish limits of tog with anglers playing catch and release with plenty more tog.
