The Thanksgiving Holiday period has been working out very well for striped bass fishermen so far.
At Atlantic Highlands, the Fishermen stated out with white water action in shallow water before it turned to a pick the rest of the day as the current was too fast. The Sea Tiger II didn’t have to worry about getting back early on its Thanksgiving trip as they were limited on stripers by 9:30.
The Golden Eagle from Belmar had stripers on top this morning, and then picked the rest of the day as most went home with a bass while some had both a keeper and a slot.
A small craft advisory is up until 6 before it turns to a gale warning late tonight. The Saturday forecast is for west wjnds at 15-20 knots plus gusts to 30.
