The Golden Eagle from Belmar reported a slower day of striper fishing though not for any lack of bass. They were splashing on the surface this morning and birds were diving, but they just weren’t hitting well. That changed during the day, and the boat went into overtime in order to come up with a good catch of keepers and bonus bass. Shad lures worked best, and there were even some fluke released,
The Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands reported another fine day of striper fishing, but Tuesday will be the Last day to fish with Capt. Rob Semkewyc. More about that tomorrow.
The forecast is for northwest winds at 15-20 knots with gusts to 25.
