Many veterans were able to enjoy their day today by catching fish under pleasant weather conditions. However, all that will change on Tuesday with rain and SE winds of 20–25 knots with gusts to 30 in the forecast. Many party boats have already cancelled. Don’t come down before checking with your skipper.
This vet celebrated by joining Chuck Many on his Ty Man from Gateway Marina in Highlands. He stopped under picking birds as Bob Bowden and Dave Glassberg from Little Silver and I jigged six small bass before going on the hunt for bigger stripers in the ocean. Finding bunkers to snag for live bait was tough, but we ended up with 19 keepers released. The largest was a 32-pounder. I’ll have details in tomorrows blog.
The Golden Eagle and Big Mohawk from Belmar had good striper reports. The Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands found some small bass under birds, and added a couple of keepers. Perhaps this east wind will pish some of those bass that have been off eastern Long Island our way.
