Capt. Rob Semkewyc barely had enough fares to sail for stripers on cold Saturday, but everyone was happy as stripers provided a boat limit on Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands while others were released. That should have set up a great Sunday in good conditions, but it turned out to be a “You should have been here yesterday” trip as the bass just didn’t bite.
Capt. Rob said October stripers are unpredictable from day to day, and he will be shaping up in the morning even though he only has a few reservations so far — and would appreciate calls in advance. The forecast is very good, with only 5 to 10 knot southeast winds.
The Golden Eagle from Belmar has will probably be running their last tuna trip with the Tuesday 11 p.m. offshore sailing. Call for reservations.
The Mimi VI from Point Pleasant will run an open bottom fishing trip on Thursday at 6:30 a. m. The fare is $90 on the limited trip. Call 732 370-8019 for reservations.
