Dave Lilly said it was a sight to behold this morning as birds and surfacing stripers were everywhere from the Tin Can Grounds to the Rockaways. They were gorging on very small sand eels, and hit shads or small diamond jigs as fast as they were cast.
Sorry for the delay, but I traveled to Florida today for Thanksgiving with the family.
Allen Riley didn’t have a good report from the Sandy Hook surf as he and John Mazzeo were shut out in fine conditions as there was no bait inshore while birds were working far out.
Bob Matthews reports from Fisherman’s Den in Belmar Marina that small bass and hickory shad are hitting lures such as the Tsunami Sand Eel in the local surf, but the big news was is the run of winter flounder at local docks with two-fish limits for all.
