we also had two other fish in the 11-12lb range as well,both of these were fat females as well. So we had the shots at the big fish again,if the dogs would have left us along I think we could have picked a little better at them.
Joe Melillo, at Castaways Tackle in Point Pleasant, says his regulars are still catching a few very small stripers in the surf However, Jerry Lasko of Point Pleasant gave up on that fishing. The surf water temperature is down to 35 degrees.
