It's been a long time since a large surf striper was reported, but Grumpy's Tackle in Seaside Park weighed a 47-inch, 29. John Bushell, at Betty Nick's Tackle weighed an 11 1 16-pound striper that Darryl Zaricek caught on a SP Minnow in the park.
The Golden Eagle from Belmar started out catching smaller blues and bonito before making a 5-mile run offshore to find jumbo blues up to 20 pounds. I went to Belmar, and again had a single strike on a Tactical Anglers Bomb Jr. popper which came from a 23-inch striper.
