The unusual run of light winds and mild weather continues into the weekend with southeast winds at just 5-10 knots predicted for Saturday.

While ftriper fishing remains hot in Raritan Bay, this could be the first weekend of striper fishing in the ocean. The Golden Eagle from Belmar has reported seeing and reading them though they haven’t started biting. All it might take is a slight increase in water temperature.

Blackfishing seems to be improving steadily at Belmar for the Big Mohawk, which had an angler with a limit yesterday, and Ocean Explorer (see photo).

Chuck Many had a fine striper bite during a late afternooon to night trip on Ty Man from Highlands as his crew tagged and released bass from 22 unches up to a 32-pounder on both live bunkers and chunks in Raritan Bay.

  1. Striper fishing continues in both the navesink and Shrewsbury Rivers. Although the fish are not as large as the ones in the bay right now. There is enough on those days when you don’t care to run with the crowd. It is more fun fishing then anything else. There are some flounder in spots up the rivers. Patience is always necessary when you are flounder fishing.
