The best surface casting bite of striped bass in Raritan Bay I've ever seen occurred Wednesday afternoon while fishing with Chuck Many of Annndale on his Ty Man from Gateway Marina in Highlands after an 11 a. m. departure and a stop for gas before getting out just in time for the outgoing tide. The Jamaica has another canyon tuna trip set for Nov. 14 at 7 a. m. -- and is also taking reservations (732 528-5014) for the first giant sea bass trips to far offshore wrecks Saturday with a few spots left for a 1 a. m boarding plus Nov. 17 and 18 at 11 30 p. m.
It was a little bit of a ride but I knew I had some time to kill, as our best fishing has been on the outgoing tide the past week. If the fishing was even half as good as its been we would have a good day.
November 8th, 2017 Stripers Blues Charters After having an excellent day of striper fishing yesterday, we didn t sail today due to the weather. 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.
Anyone fishing the mouth of Raritan Bay this afternoon could hardly have missed catching stripers to his heart's content. Bob Matthews, at Fisherman's Den in Belmar Marina, reports that James Weir of Belmar caught four stripers up to 12 pounds on a Tsunami Shad cast at his local beach.
