Posted on April 14, 2019 Nice day â€“ slowÂ fishing Though the weather was good, fishing on Saturday was generally slow. The ocean stripers didnâ€™t show, and the Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands reported that stripers were read, but didnâ€™t bite very often in Raritan Bay. When casting shads didnâ€™t work, they anchored up and caught a couple of keepers plus some shorts. Hopefully that will change on Sunday. The Ocean Explorer from Belmar reported good life on bottom with short blackfish and some keepers plus a few cod and ling. The Golden Eagle is going into drydock and will resume sailing at the end of the month. There are mall craft warnings up until 2 a.m., but by morning it should only be southeast at 5-10 knots which increases in the afternoon with possible showers, drizzle and fog.
