Capt. Lou Grazioso called in from the Raritan River to report a pick of short stripers on shad lures for Bryne Pieros and Dave Donahue as the he felt the bite was off a bit due to the full moon. It certainly wasn’t due to the water temperature which Lou said was an amazing 57.3 degrees.
It was also a beautiful day along the Shore, and Bob Matthews at Fisherman’s Den in Belmar Marina said a winter flounder was caught on a sandworm. Striper action has been both north and south of there so far.
A dense fog advisory is up until 7 a.m. South winds at 10-15 knots increase to 15-20 with gusts to 25 in the afternoon.
