Fishermen had a fairly good weekend targeting the growing number of gamefish in the local waters now that the ocean is approaching its summertime temp.  One of the catches that stands out was a great white shark, or simply white shark, which was accidentallhooked and released by a party of sport fishermen off the coast of Seaside Heights, about even with the pier on Sunday. The boat, Reel Innovation Sportfishing which docks in Harvey Cedars, was about a mile off the coast when the catch occurred, said Paul Kaufman at Fishermen's Headquarters in Ship Bottom. The shop was first to report the catch of one of the ocean's apex predators. The captain of the boat Jeff Warford said they were fishing for thresher sharks, a legal game shark pursued by fishermen for its meat and fighting ability when the white shark was hooked by accident. They were in 50 feet of water. "Typically the only shark that you would catch this time of year in this close would be a thresher shark. They're following the bunker schools inshore," said Warford.He estimated the white shark measured about 7 feet, which would make it a juvenile. Once hooked, it charged the boat and took about 20 minutes for the fishermen to get it to the side of the boat where it was quickly released. Warford said it swam off quickly under its own power. White sharks are federally protected species and must be released if caught by accident. Fishermen are not permitted to target them.  Big fish: Great white shark trek continues, as another tagged shark Martha reaches NJBluefishThere is a lot of little bluefish around both inshore and in the rivers. Jason "Jay" Berardi, a former Big Jamaica deckhand, along with his 6-year old son Jack, landed a half-dozen blues in 15 minutes tossing red-tailed diamond jigs in the Manasquan River near Fishermen's Cove.    Beradi said they were fishing the outgoing tide on Saturday afternoon when the blues turned on. The fish were about a pound to two pounds. Capt. Matt Sosnowski on the Norma K III party boat said they had a fairly large sea turtle swim by the boat while they were anchored for sea bass on Saturday. He said the turtle had "been around for a while" by the looks of all the barnacles on its shell. Fishing report: Shark River yields 8-pound fluke; 40-pound bass caught and released off Long BranchAs far as the sea bass fishing went, Sosnowski said it was a little slower than what it had been but he still had anglers catch their limit of 10 sea bass. It seemed like anglers couldn't just sit their bait on the bottom and wait for a bite. Instead, the fish were a bit higher off the structure. He said jigs worked well. His fares also landed ling, winter flounder and another monkfish. The fluke fishing is still a bit slow in the ocean, though when sea bass season closes for a brief spell June 22, a lot more for-hire boats are going to target them.The fishing on the bayside of Sandy Hook is showing some signs of picking up. Capt. Tom Buban of the Atlantic Star party boat reported Jake Edwards of Riverdale made a limit catch during the Sunday morning trip. Buban mostly drifted around Sandy Hook Bay and Flynn's Knoll over the weekend.     There was a slew of black drum landed from the southern Ocean county beaches, particularly on Island Beach State Park. A number of them were weighed in at Grumpy's Bait and Tackle in Seaside Park. The shop weighed in two drum at 39 pounds, a 37 pounder and a 16 pounder, all in the last three days.When Jersey Shore native Dan Radel is not reporting the news, you can find him in a college classroom where he is a history professor.
