The Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association reports some decent catches of bluefish and sea bass despite recent bad weather. Captain Adam Nowalsky of the "Karen Ann" out of Great Bay Marina reports sea bass are moving onto the local wrecks with some jumbos up to 4-pounds being caught. He has also heard of some large weakies in the back creeks of Great Bay. Captain Fran Verdi on "Fish the Drop Off" had Patrick Souders and Alex Bayer out last week and did well trolling for bluefish in Great Bay. The best action was on the outgoing tide on blues in the 8-10 pound class. Another trip with Bert Saum, Sean Carey, and Chris Flowers only produced one bluefish along with plenty of dogfish. Northeast winds and cold rain cooled off the fishing. Additional information on the association can be found at
