As good as Raritan Bay striped bass fishing has been, it may have even improved despite all the weekend boat traffic. Charter boats loaded up early, and Capt. Ron Santee of the Fishermen at Atlantic Highlands sent the following report”Took a bit to get everyone acclimated today but when things got right, it was awesome fishing once again.
4 of us including June netting lord knows how many Bass while the bite was hot. Some mix in size from Bonus fish up to the 38 inch pool fish caught by Eric. Young Josh even got to land 4 fish all by himself, I got him on video also which was very cool.
Several guys with 12 to 20 fish by days end. Tony topped yesterdays nine with twice that many today!
Amazing the amount of life with the bait and Strong Healthy Striped Bass. Everyone went home with the meat.“
The forecast is for southwest winds at 10-15 knots plus gusts to 20 and morning showers before going west in the afternoon.
