Capt. Russ Binns trolled his Mar-Lin from Toms River right up to 5 p. m., and had his best shot late in the day when some birds started working on rainfish as a few bass and blues hit bunker spoons -- including a 20-pound striper. Capt. Ron Santee had just two stripers early before also getting getting into the big blues at the end of his trip with the Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands.
We stopped the boat and the rods were bending it wasn't Stripers but the Big Blues and they were everywhere in all the areas I made stops in earlier in the day. We stayed out a little late we had six Stripers and plenty of big blues.
