and I joined Chuck Many of Annandale on his Ty Man from Gateway Marina in Highlands to fish the Hudson and East rivers where we ended up releasing 15 stripers (including 11 over 28 inches and up to about 20 pounds), 15 weakfish up to 27 1 2 inches, 6 blues in the 3-to-4-poind class, 3 porgies, several small sea bass,and a hickory shad that hit a lure in Raritan Bay, I'll have more about this in Friday's column. The Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands was also up in the Hudson, but didn't have a good bite as George Cullen boated the only striper.
Good fishing, Seabass opens Sunday Monday, October 16, 2017 We had another good week of Porgies Porgie action is holding up with some quality Blackfish. Seabass opens this Sunday, October 22nd so we can soon enjoy a mix of Seabass, Porgies and Blackfish without government waste.
The Golden Eagle from Belmar concluded their canyon fishing Sunday night with one large yellowfin tuna boated though others were lost along with a swordfish that got off at the boat. They had fine fishing for jumbo blues Sunday on both Run-Off Hammer jigs and bait -- and will return to that fishing.
