Atlantic Highlands blackfishing November 25 25 November 2016 Capt. Tom Made our 3 4 day blackfishing trip today. It was a nice day but there was not much wind and that made for tough anchoring conditions.

As long as the fish are here, we are going to continue fishing daily for stripers and blues from 7 00 a. m. 2 30 p. m. all through the month of December. With Miss Belmar's 3 engines and a total of 2,100 horsepower, she is the first boat to the fishing grounds every day and we guarantee it.
Capt. Rob Semkewyc reported very good striper action on Wednesday as his Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands limited on slots and released others while coming up just two short of a boat limit of keepers. The Queen Mary from Point Pleasant had almost a boat limit of of slot bass on Wednesday, and mostly 24-to-32-inch stripers on Thanksgiving.
At times the readings on the fish finder were so good I thought the whole boat would hook up and we would catch one. Some drifts we would catch 2-4 Stripers with some big blues mixed in and other drifts a few Stripers with no blues.
in the short trip today we had a couple of guys with 5 keepers,I dont think anyone caught a limit but the fish were there. Thats if you want to try,but guys caught fish as well today on conventional rigs.
Made a beeline to the grounds and found hundreds of birds, guys went to Work with the shads and poppers, had our Limit on fish From 15-30lbs. Guys got tired Of that dropped in the mojos to find some over fish andAlso for them to drink some adult beverages!
