11 28-UPDATE The last several trips have been slim pickings, with less than comfortable sea conditions and very few keepers and slots, with some action on the shorts. Every trip is a new adventure, lets hope today, Wednesday, is a good one.
After catching a few shorts casting 5-inch Tsunami Shads to birds in the middle of the bay to get things started, we moved over to the N. Y. side and put the live bunkers to good use before running out of them while releasing keeper bass up to almost 20 pounds on the same drift producing steady action with the shads for small bass which certainly dominated our fishing. At Atlantic Highlands, the Sea Hunter reported a very good first drift with a mix of shorts, slots and keepers.
