TheTackle Box in Hazlet sent the following e-mail about the first large striper caught from Raritan Bay shorelines:
The Tackle Box in Hazlet reports the first nice big keeper striper was caught on a TACKLE BOX wormball yesterday right before dark- by Misael Segovia -it was a nice day and the Bayshore flats water temp went to 48 -49 degrees !
The “wormball” is a combo of a few blood worms and a few sand worms hung off a inline circle hook with a small piece of a rag then folded back up on themselves and wrapped w bait elastic thread and doused in FIN-ESSENCE clam oil! This method allows the ball of worms to be re-used over and over again!
The forecast is for southwest winds at 10-15 knots on Monday.
