Posted on June 6, 2020 Sea Hunter Hundreds of bass rolling After getting shut out during his first striper trip on Wednesday, Capt. Rob Semkewyc had a far different experience as he reported bunkers and bass up all day, with hundreds of bass rolling on the surface. Moving down to Seaside didn t provide any more hope, and there were no boats fishing during the run back to Manasquan Inlet on a beautiful day when there would usually be lots of boats working bunker schools for stripers or drifting for fluke at this time of year.
Capt. Chris Di Stefano made the right choice as he joined Jimmy Herrick on the Navesink River as the crew limited on fluke with few shorts to work through which is just the opposite of what Chris has found in Shark River, As noted in last night s blog, Mark Roy had trolled mojos all day in Raritan Bay without a hit. The Queen Mary from Point Pleasant reported only a pick of sea bass in the southeast wind after having had consistent action.
There were numerous limits around the boat on sea bass, with a good amount of ling, winter flounder and a fluke. Until the blues come in we are sailing daily for ling and sea bass from 7 30 a. m. 2 30 p. m. and every Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon for fluke and sea bass from 4 30 p. m. 8 30 p. m.

On Tuesday, Karl Hackkert and his two sons trolled eight bluefins (releasing all but 5) and a bigeye before moving into the shallower big bluefin grounds to troll a 57-inch 100-pounder on a way back balao. He ll try again Friday, and urges anglers to bring a lighter spinner to snag bunkers plus a heavier outfit for fishing those big baits.
