Adult bunkers were the primary forage in the Jersey surf today, and the result was more big stripers to be caught.
Jerry Lasko fished the Ocean County surf and said he just had to keep driving to find flurries of bass over 30 inches which included a 40-incher. The fishing kept getting better all day, and bass were still hitting when it was almost dark. Jerry sent the photo below of Louie with one of yesterday’s bass.
Vinny D’Anton fished the Monmouth County surf in the morning and picked a few large bass at times.
The Golden Eagle from Belmar had another great day of striper fishing with boat limits of keepers and bonus bass plus many releases of stripers over the limit. Since the boat will be on an offshore sea bass trip tomorrow, they won’t be striper fishing again until Tuesday.
The forecast is for southwest winds at just 5-10 knots.
