The weather is looking better in NY/NJ Bight as small craft warnings are coming down at 6 p.m. After good bluefish jigging last week, the small choppers turned off over the weekend. Fluking also slowed in cooler ocean waters, though it should bounce back quickly. Striped bass fishing
Capt. Vinny Vetete of Katfish at Great Kills had a day off Sunday and fished with Capt. Joe Massa on his My Three Sons at Morgan to release stripers and load up on giant porgies.
Mike Monte is back on Nantucket where the beaches are loaded with bait and large stripers which only want to hit white Sluggos. Mike tried sand fleas there for the first time and had no luck with them. That’s not surprising as stripers normally gorge on the bugs when swimming bait isn’t available.
