Fisherman Magazine Update

The Jersey Coast Anglers Association (JCAA) hosts their 23rd Annual Fluke Tournament this Saturday, August 5, with a $50,000 doormat Calcutta for the biggest fluke over 12 pounds. August is typically the month for trophy fluke on the Jersey Shore, and the latest reports out of Shark River this week show the true doormats of 10 pounds and up are out there for the taking; a 10-pounder was also taken out of Barnegat Inlet this week, so big fish are definitely on the move. Bonito reported in South Jersey off 2FB as anglers start looking to the Barnegat and Manasquan Ridges for that light tackle action; farther to the East, yellowfin catches are good at the canyons and a good bit inshore of the canyons as well for folks looking closely at those satellite charts. Much of the NJ/DE offshore competitors are actively preparing for the White Marlin Open out of Ocean City, MD next week, while keeping an eye on the weather front. For the weekend ahead, NOAA Forecast for Hudson Canyon to Baltimore Canyon has light winds and 2- to 3-foot seas Friday becoming 3 to 4’s on Saturday and 2 to 4’s by Sunday before turning a bit snotty on Monday. Fisherman subscribers, don’t forget to bring those 50-pound yellowfin and 10-pound mahi in for Dream Boat weigh-in!
