After good reports Saturday, it looked promising in good weather today for Raritan Bay area stripers. However, the results didn’t meet expectations.\

Capt. Ron Santee didn’t find readings where he had them yesterday on his Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands, and only got into some bass at another spot that looked better. A couple of “big girls” were also released. Santee noted that the boat traffic was the worst he’s seen in his long career.

The Golden Eagle from Belmar reported reading lots of stripers, but they weren’t hitting and not enough were caught for the crowd aboard.


  1. I tried the Monmouth County surf Saturday no bites. I tried again Sunday as I had more bait (jumbo bloods and fresh clams). Was hoping slight east winds wood change things up. It did. 5 Stripers 33 inches, 27, 25, and 2 schoolies. All hot jumbo bloods. Sorry cant share my lucky spot but somewhere in Monmouth County Surf!
