They aren’t the jumbo stripers that arrived before the gale, but anglers aboard the Golden Eagle from Belmar were happy with the school stripers they caught today. That boat made a long run to get into them, but reported a 1 1/2-hour drift that produced singles and multiples of keepers and shorts.
The Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands had a mixture of bottom fish, but was hampered by about 200 spiny dogfish carrying live pups. Capt. Ron Santee is switching to stripers on Wednesday.
