Capt. Monty Hawkins picked up some reports that encouraged him to schedule a few trips with his Morning Star out of Ocean City, Md. The first actually produced some mackerel, including a few multiples.
There are many other lure manufacturers at the Expo, including Capt. Pete Meyers who never runs out of ideas or better finishes for his Run-Off Lures -- while also offering the most economical braided line available. The Expo winds up at Garden State Exhibit Center from 10 a. m. to 5 p. m. Sunday with a full range of seminars from area pros.
The Expo runs from 10 a. m. to 6 p. m. on Saturday, and I'll be doing a striped bass seminar at 11 30 along with Chuck Many, the most dedicated private striper skipper in the state, with a special slideshow -- and Capt. Hans Kaspersetz of Sheri Berri at Highlands. There will also be many other seminars provided during the day, as will be the case on Sunday when the Expo runs from 10 a. m. to 5 p. m. Visit www.
Those attending my 11 30 a. m. Saturday striped bass seminar can not only gain knowledge about Raritan Bay and coastal striper fishing from me and my sidekick, Capt. Hans Kaspersetz, but also from a slideshow presentation by Chuck Many, one of the top private striper pros in the northeast -- and then end up with a valuable Tady metal lure given to each person attending the seminar. Seminars a also being provided by Shimano surfcasting expert Roy Leyva, Bill Carson of Johnson Outdoors, and local charter captains Erwin Heinrich, Frank Tenore, Gene Quigley, Jim Freda, Brian Rice, Frank Crescitelli and Jimmy Gahm -- along with Darren Dorris, RJ and Cody Melton, Capt.
