Tuesday’s trip of the Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands will be the last that Capt. Rob Semkewyc runs as he heads down to Oriental, North Carolina in retirement to escape New Jersey taxes
Rob is going out at the top of his game as the fall striper run has been exceptional. The boat will be going to Montauk, where it will be run under another name. Rob has not only established a great reputation for his fishing abilities, but I’ve always been able to count on the honesty of his reports, good or bad.
The Golden Eagle from Belmar was into lots of stripers this morning, but it was difficult to get hits from them.
Mike Monte reported morning surf fishing has been tough, but he knew of afternoon surf blitzes over the weekend in Ocean County — and I just got a call from Vinny D’Anton as that county has broken open for surfcasting. Vinny has been into bass up to 32 inches.
