Beach Haven Captains Look For Warm Water
<p>The captains of the Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association are looking forward to the next couple of week's fishing. The water temperatures have taken a hit lately, dropping dramatically. This has had a negative effect on the fluke and black sea bass action. However, with high temperatures forecast this week, it looks like the water temperatures should be back up where they belong. Captain Carl Sheppard on the "Star Fish" fished last Friday with two anglers and found a wreck with some nice sea bass in 100-feet of water. Captain Carl says the bottom temperature must have been cold as they also picked up ling and cod. He tried fishing the Little Egg Reef on Sunday and found the bite to be slow due to the icy water. Captain John Koegler took "Star Fish" out on Monday looking for bluefin and shark. In addition to some big bluefish, he picked up both mako and brown sharks. Recent good reports of yellowfin tuna at the offshore canyons should make for some interesting trips. Captain Lindsay Fuller is bringing the "June Bug" up from Hatteras this weekend for the summer and plans to do some trolling for tuna on his way up the coast.
