Jerry Lasko said he got into a mini-blitz on an Ocean County beach yesterday morning as stripers were working on bunkers larger than peanuts and smaller than adults. Nick Honachefsky went back to the beach in the evening to release 33 from 24-29 inches on a black Bomber and was into them again this morning.
Posted on November 18, 2020 Ocean stripers didn t mind the wind The Golden Eagle from Belmar managed to get out today despite the cold wind forecast, and they had hot action with stripers right away before ending up with a boat limit plus many releases and some bluefish, The Sea Hunter didn t sail from Atlantic Highlands today, but will be ready to go tomorrow. The Queen Mary from Point Pleasant had a boat limit of stripers and many releases on their Tuesday Striper Marathon.
Posted on November 17, 2020 Another good striper day for boaters The ocean was calm and the stripers cooperated for boaters but the tough pick continued on the surf. Vinny D Anton finally got a small striper from the surf when he tried Brick Beach, but that was it for his morning.
Posted on November 16, 2020 Switch to west winds should knock down seas Though the gale warning continues into the morning, the switch to west winds should knock down big seas and make fishing possible on the opening day of the blackfish season as the limit goes up to five at a 15-inch minimum. West winds will be 20-25 knots with gusts to 30.
Only 12 guys on the boat today, but we had all our bonus fish and all our over 28 inches in no time. I am cancelling Wednesdays trip NW wind gusts to 30 that usually ends up being gusts to 35 and its gonna be cold.
