Dave s spot provided a one hour bite until the wind killed the drift. Tank Matraxia made his first trip of the season a good one as he and Typhoon Emil limited on sea bass during the last day of the N. J. season.

Posted on June 20, 2020 Last chance for N. J. sea bass on Monday Sea bass fishing has held up during the spring season in N. J. with the 10 fish bag, but that ends after Monday which should lead to more effort on ocean fluking. Very cold ocean bottom waters have resulted in the best fluking having been in shallow inshore waters that are much warmer.
Fishing is staying about the same with mostly shorts and a few keepers mixed in, We did have a surprise when a 33 pound 38 inch Striper hit a gulp and spearing combo. Ill post the striper pic later its on my phone and I have to get it to my photos and now I'm on my way to play a little golf .
