New Jersey Doormats, Surf Marlin & ICAST Update
The Fisherman staffers are down in Orlando this week for the big ICAST tackle event presented by the American Sportfishing Association. And among all these international tackle manufacturers and vendors, you know what’s become a pretty popular topic? The white marlin in the surf line along the Jersey Shore all week! Videoed along the Ocean County surf this week, this surfside pelagic has become a social media sensation of sorts and pops up in Mantoloking in this week’s video forecast; last report has it sighted inside Manasquan River! Fluke action is up another notch with 10-pound doormat fish out of Belmar and the Raritan Bay in the past week, while as of Thursday morning the offshore conditions look solid through Saturday for those looking to get a shot at the inshore bluefin or offshore yellowfin bite. Get a sneak peek at ICAST 2021, an update on the “CKC” and a short feature about our Hail Mary striper tag in this week’s full video forecast.
