When I joined Capt. Erwin Heinrich this morning on his Scales N Tales from Twin Lights Marina in Highands, I didn't expect to see many boats in Raritan Bay during a weekday on the coldest morning of the year with a continuing northwest wind gusting to 25 mph. Gomber got things started in spectacular fashion when Heinrich stopped his Contender on bait readings and near a whale in mid-bay by tempting a 36 1 2-inch striper to hit a Tsunami Shad.

The Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands starts striper fishing Wednesday morning, and the Sea Hunter from that port resumes that sport after sitting out the worst of the northwest wind. Joe Melillo got away from his Castaways Tackle in Point Pleasant to hook some hickory shad in the Bay Head surf.
