New Jersey Offshore Fishing Report 11-9-18

Note: This might be the year’s final Offshore Report. The report actually is usually finished already, in November’s first days. But a little news rolled in, so it was posted here.

<b>Sandy Hook</b>

Capt. Joe Baumle from <b>Sour Kraut Sportfishing</b> from Leonard heard second-hand that 80-pound bluefin tuna were caught Sunday from the Mudhole to the Glory Hole. That was the only day with fishable weather around then.

<b>Manasquan Inlet</b>

A tuna trip was weathered out that was supposed to sail Tuesday to Wednesday on the <b>Gambler</b>, the party boat’s Facebook page said. The year’s final is supposed to run this coming Tuesday to Wednesday. See the <a href="http://www.gamblerfishing.net/offshoretrips.php" target="_blank">tuna page</a> on the boat’s website for info. <a href="http://www.gamblerfishing.net/offshore-sea-bass.php" target="_blank">Offshore sea bass trips</a> will fish in December.

A Brielle party boat left yesterday morning to fish offshore canyons for tuna, Dave from <b>The Reel Seat</b> in the town said while the trip was still fishing. The trip was maybe going to score differently, but canyon tuna fishing was a disaster this season. Boaters are still spotting bluefin tuna inshore, he said. Schoolie bluefins swam the Shark River Reef area, Alex from the shop said earlier this week. But few anglers tried for them.

<b>Townsend’s Inlet</b>

A couple of trips reportedly sailed to offshore canyons Wednesday in a break in weather, said Mike from <b>Sea Isle Bait & Tackle</b> in Sea Isle City. They reportedly hooked bigeye tuna and swordfish. Those fish seem to be biting now when the trips have the weather to sail.
