Posted on November 26, 2020 Check on Thanksgiving trips before coming down Many party boats have scheduled early Thanksgiving striper trips, but be sure to check with skippers before coming down as some are canceling due to the weather. The Golden Eagle from Belmar had decent striper fishing today, with plenty of slots and some keepers plus big blues but they have canceled the Thanksgiving sailing.
Had childhood friend Brian with buddies, CJ, Levy, Sells and Drew, made our way to the grounds in sporty conditions and found the insane life, acres of birds and fish on the surface everywhere. Landed over 20 fish in first hour and decided to look for fish in calmer conditions and give the fellas a chance to hear music and enjoy adult beverages!
Posted on November 24, 2020 Sea Hunter Best striper drift of year As good as the northern NJ striper jigging has been. The boat was limited with bonus bass quickly, and 16 of 28 inches or more were added as everyone went home with two keepers.
Since it s also possible to fish in partially protected areas, some boats may also get back into action tomorrow. There were no boat reports today, but the Ocean Explorer from Belmar had an unusual blackfish report from Sunday when the tog bite actually improved as it got rougher by late morning.
The seas became a little nasty and it was getting uglier as the trip went on. I gave everyone a discount for next trip and told them to come back when they could actually enjoy themselves, and we docked at 11 45.
Posted on November 22, 2020 Boaters paid the price to catch stripers today The east wind came up quickly today, and Capt. Rob Semkewyc said he buried the bow of his Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands for the first time and then that happened twice more!It was a big change from Friday s best striper trip of the year in calm waters and yesterday s fine action in parking lot conditions between the channels.
11 year old Daniel Tartakoeski from Fair Lawn Is a new member of the SEA HUNTER FISHING TEAM he landed 16 Stripers and after a while wasn't even waiting for the net he swinging them over the rail. We will be back at it tomorrow, See you soon, Capt. Rob11 year old Dan the Man Tartakoeski
Went searching for life starting off with a few shorts found some fish later in the morning landing a few keepers and keeping the rods bent with a bunch of shorts for the boys. Fun bunch of guys on a beautiful day, wish we had more keepers!
