We needed a northeast blow to move stripers and bait to the east, but today’s weather was a lot more than we needed. That should straighten out as winds shift to the west and begin the process of calming and clearing the ocean.
There was already a showing of stripers Friday reported by Capt. Vinnie Vetere of Great Kills from his Katfish. He proclaimed that as the startof the fall migration even though the main body was still off Fire Island at that time.
We should be seeing more of stripers like the one held by Guy Talerico on his Jersey Patriot from Jersey City. Capt. Joe Massa took the shot on N.Y. Harbor with the British aircraft carrier in the background.
