Fog the last couple of days has been a problem for most boaters, though some have appreciated the lack of visibility when they got into stripers. The wind shift to northwest should clear things up as 10-15 knot winds with gusts to 20 are forecasted.
At Belmar, the Golden Eagle reported a good day with many keepers while also releasing bass over the size limit. They sail again at 6:30 a.m.
Capt. Ron Santee will be glad to see the fog gone as it’s been a problem on his Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands. His fares came up with a dozen keeper stripers today with a high hook of four. At one time there were bass on top around the boat. but few hit the variety of lures cast to them. They were feeding on peanut bunkers. and smaller shads and Crippled Herring worked best.
Capt. Frank Masseria said he had a hot bite on shads in Tuesday’s fog on Vitamin Sea from Keyport. He has openings on Saturday and Monday mornings.
Jim Hutchinson Sr. and Jr. were tagging large stripers Tuesday with Chuck Many on Tyman out of Highlands.
