and I joined Chuck Many of Annandale on his Ty Man from Gateway Marina in Highlands to fish the Hudson and East rivers where we ended up releasing 15 stripers (including 11 over 28 inches and up to about 20 pounds), 15 weakfish up to 27 1 2 inches, 6 blues in the 3-to-4-poind class, 3 porgies, several small sea bass,and a hickory shad that hit a lure in Raritan Bay, I'll have more about this in Friday's column. The Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands was also up in the Hudson, but didn't have a good bite as George Cullen boated the only striper.
