The fussy stripers that have been testing the patience of skippers and anglers turned on today before a change in weather that will keep most at home tomorrow.

The following report from Capt. Rob Semkewyc of the Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands sums it up as follows:


Those of you who thought about coming today and did not because of the forecast your gonna kick yourself in the @#$.  Today was Excellent lots of Stripers . Everyone left with a slot and a keeper for dinner. We also had a few big fish that had to get thrown back. The biggest caught by Greg Nagy it went 50.2 lbs. His second 50 plus caught on a jig this year. With today being a holiday and not having many people show up with only a chance of rain. {Tomorrows trip is cancelled.}  We will resume fishing on Friday.  See you then, Capt. Rob

The Golden Eagle from Belmar had a similar ocean report as there were lots of bonus bass plus blues and even a fat bonito and sea bass.

A small craft warning went up at 3 p.m. for south winds at 15-20 knots and showers. There will be southwest gusts to 25 after midnight. The morning forecast is north at 10-15 knots but with gusts to 25 and rain.
