Posted on April 12, 2019 Raritan Bay best bet for stripers The ocean stripers didn’t show again today, but Raritan Bay continues to produce. Phillip Sciortino  had both of his sons back from military service this week, and they all got together with Matt Calabria on Uruguay Fly to catch bass up to 29 pounds on mo-jos soaked in Fin Essence bunker oil.   SECOND PHOTO The Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands again stayed in the bay to pick both keepers and shorts. TOP PHOTO Tank Matraxia and his Lyndhurst crew got out today with Capt. Anthony on Hard Bottom from Sewaren. Tank lost his first striper, cut then broke the ice by tagging a 27 1/2-inch (fork length) bass , and tagged six in all up to 32 inches fork length with ALS tags. Though the stripers didn’t show again, the Big Mohawk and Ocean Explorer had a decent bottom bite of short and keeper blackfish. The Golden Eagle from Belmar has cancelled for tomorrow due to the weather, but will be after the stripers again on the weekend. The Big Mohawk sails in the morning  at 7, and the Ocean Explorer at 7:30. Though the forecast tonight is for gusty south winds, it’s only supposed to be southeast at 10-15 knots in the morning.
