Atlantic Highlands stripe bass fishing May 8 08 May 2016 Capt. Tom Made our morning trip today for stripe bass and again it was all bluefish. We are fishing everyday making two trips (8am to 12 30 and 1 30 pm to 6pm) from the Atlantic Highlands marina.
A few striped bass were caught each day with jumbo bluefish dominating the catches for our guys who had a ton of fun and all of the great action they could handle. Hopefully the great action continues until the opening of the fluke season!!
Striped bass have been few and far between for northern party boats in both the ocean and Raritan Bay, so skippers really appreciate the current abundance of big bluefish. Blues from 10 to 16 pounds were blasting poppers and swimmers in Barnegat Bay for anglers fishing with Capt. Dave De Gennaro on his Hi-Flier from Barnegat.
Atlantic Highlands stripe bass fishing May 7 07 May 2016 Capt. Tom Made both morning and afternoon trips today from the Atlantic Highlands marina. We were not able to catch a bass on the morning or afternoon trip.
