New Jersey Offshore Fishing Reports 10-26-18

<b>Manasquan Inlet</b>

Fishing at offshore canyons was no good, said Eric from <b>The Reel Seat</b> in Brielle. A handful of mahi mahi and a couple of swordfish bit. Nothing was heard about bluefin tuna closer to shore, only because weather discouraged trips from sailing.

<b>Barnegat Inlet</b>

A couple of offshore trips for tuna and other catches were weathered out on the <b>Super Chic</b> from Barnegat Light last week, Capt. Ted said. The next angling slated was for sea bass and bluefish this week aboard.

Nobody reported fishing offshore for tuna, said Mike from <b>Grizz’s Bait & Tackle</b> in Forked River. All baits are stocked for inshore and offshore.

<b>Townsend’s Inlet</b>

Nothing was heard about tuna fishing, said Mike from <b>Sea Isle Bait & Tackle</b> in Sea Isle City.

<b>Cape May Inlet</b>

An offshore trip sailed Friday with <b>Fishin’ Fever Sportfishing</b> from Cape May in a break in weather, Capt. Tom said. A couple of drops for swordfish were made. But none bit. The trip limited out on mahi mahi quickly, and also fished for tilefish. That angling cranked in golden tiles to 27 pounds. Twelve were heavier than 20 pounds, and a few rosefish were also reeled in during that angling. The trip’s swordfishing was during daytime, and Tom is pioneering that sport locally. Swordfishing during the day is already popular in other locations like Florida, of course. The trips fish deep water along bottom for the light-sensitive swords. Charters and open-boat trips sail aboard.
