New Jersey Offshore Saltwater Fishing Report 11-10-17

This is the year's final Offshore Report!
The report kicks back off in June with shark fishing.

<b>Manasquan Inlet</b>

Tuna fishing was slow at offshore canyons, said Eric from <b>The Reel Seat</b> in Brielle. Longfin tuna were picked on the chunk, but the angling wasn’t good.  A couple of party boats still fished the canyons. Swordfish were hooked at the canyons. Closer to shore, bluefin tuna still bit along the east side of the Chicken Canyon and at the Triple Wrecks, “as far as I’m aware,” Eric said. Few trips boated for them recently in windy weather. But previously, 25- to 40-pounders were jigged at scallop boats there.

The <b>Gambler</b> from Point Pleasant Beach will have one more go at tuna fishing on an overnight trip 10 p.m. Tuesday, and spots are available, a report said on the vessel’s website. The last trip fished the best of the year, bagging more than 30 tuna, covered in the previous report here. Telephone the boat to sign up.

<b>Townsend’s Inlet</b>

Capt. Joe Hughes from <b>Jersey Cape Guide Service</b> and <b>Sea Isle Bait & Tackle</b> from Sea Isle City and his son fished for false albacore for only 45 minutes last week on Thursday, he said. They landed seven and pulled the hook on two. The fishing, on cast Albie Snax, was very good. Joe fished for albies with his friend and fellow charter Capt. Chris Goldmark last Friday only a short time, and they landed one before dark. Albies stop biting in the dark, and Joe and Chris ran out of daylight. Charters with Joe on Saturday and Sunday would’ve fished for albies, but wind roughed up the ocean too much. But albies should still race around the ocean, he thinks.
