Though Raritan Bay waters are still very warm for March, the best school striper bite is still up in Raritan River.
Capt. Joe Massa made a short trip there Friday with his My Three Sons from Morgan Marina, and managed to boat his first keeper bass of the season. That 29-incher hit one of the small swimming plugs he trolled on light tackle for the scattered fish.
Capt. Lou Grazioso was in the river today for a pick of bass before the wind came up hard.
Wind could be a problem tomorrow with northwest at 15-20 knots plus gusts to 30 and a small craft advisory. but Tuesday looks great with northwest at just 5-10 knots.
