Striper fishing is improving every day in Raritan Bay, and anglers have a fine weather forecast coming up for Sunday with west winds of just 5-10 knots going to southwest during the day.
Andreas Toy from Keyport posted on Facebook that they had fine light tackle jigging for over 30 stripers up to a 30-incher in the bay on Friday.
Stripers are showing up in other places as Roger Burnley proved Tuesday as he caught three bass to 25 inches casting from his kayak at night near the Manasquan River railroad bridge.
The Ocean Explorer from Belmar got offshore on Friday when it was windy and cold, but found lots of life on bottom even if most of it was from bergalls. They did boat some blackfish, cod and ling while releasing short tog.
