Even Saturday traffic couldn’t stop the incredible striped bass fishing — and more of the “keeper” smaller bass are showing up Check out the report from Capt. Ron Santee of the Fishermen out of Atlantic Highlands:
“The Bass Gods have been shinning on us this season and today was no different!
I expected the worst today being Saturday with the Traffic and craziness but the Bass were hungry once again!
First couple of drifts we already had 25 keepers in the boat…..Shads worked the best once again. Several larger fish that had to go back when we found the Big bunkers to fish in. Most of the fish average between 29-36 inches with a few Bonus fish starting to show.
The last 45 minutes had the fish Boiling on top once again…Great fun and an awesome sight to see for all aboard.
Back at it in the AM 7:30 Sailing. Open Boat, No Reservations just come on down. Fare is $90.
If your waiting for it to get Really good…you missed the bite.“
Capt. Vinny Vetere reports the afternoon trips he’s started are producing plenty of bass for those seeking individual reservations on Katfish from Great Kills.
The forecast is for south winds at 10-15 knots with gusts to 20.
