Capt. Rob Semkewyc says Raritan Bay is loaded with bunkers, and he’s going to fish them from his Sea Hunter out of Atlantic Highlands through Friday for a better chance at big stripers which haven’t been cooperating on cut bait. It’s advisable to call him to be sure he’ll have enough fares to sail. The boat will shift to daily fluke on Saturday.
The great weather continues with northwest winds at 5-10 knots shifying to southwest in the afternoon.
Chuck Many hasn’t had a problem catching big stripers on live baits. His Monday afternoon trip with Bob and Nikki Bowden produced over 30 big bass from 43 inches up to almost 50 pounds.
