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.

Ocean striper and bluefish jigging has been poor despite the abundance of blues in the rivers and bays. Capt. Joe Massa put his crew on My III Sons from Morgan Marina into five stripers among non-stop blues while chunking in the West Bank area before finishing off with live bunkers that produced another bass.
