Capt. Ron Santee is cancelling the next two days on his Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands due to forecasts of northwest gusts to 30 knots which will make Raritan Bay striper fishing tough. Santee tried it today and only had a brief morning bite. In fact it was a one customer bite as Leif caught five of the 8 bass taken all day. The afternoon tide change didn’t produce.
The Ocean Explorer from Belmar has a Coast Guard inspection tomorrow.
They had action Monday with short blackfish plus some keepers and cod. Sea bass are already showing.
