Dave Lilly celebrated his 65th birthday this morning by fishing out of Highlands and finding stripers of 25 to 35 pounds in the mouth of Raritan Bay.  He quickly got worn out reeling in the bigger fish on wire line with Tony Maja bunker spoons.  One of the released bass was followed in by several others of the same size.

Surprisingly, there were no other boaters in the area on a calm morning.

I’ve had a lot of computer problems today, and didn’t think I could publish — so I’m shooting this out and hoping to catch up tomorrow.


  1. I was also one of the few boats in that area today of the eastern Raritan Bay despite the crazy squalls and landed ten fish up to 50 pounds. Wondering if the Chesapeake migration is making its way up to the area.
