Atlantic Highlands stripe bass fishing May 5 05 May 2016 Capt. Tom The weather kept us from fishing the past few days but we were able to make our morning (8am) trip for stripe bass today. The stripe bass fishing is not as good as we like but if you want to have some fun come catch some bluefish and maybe a bass.
Bluefish should also be available to shore anglers in Raritan Bay and Navesink River, but haven't been as much of a problem for striper fishermen as is usually the case in Raritan Bay at this time. Betty Nick's Tackle reported big blues on bucktails Wednesday morning at the south end of Island Beach State Park.
It doesn't make any difference how hard the wind blows when you're fishing in the protected Lake Ida canals with South Florida Bass Charters, but try to avoid Sundays. Betty Nick's Tackle reported that the few anglers fishing got into big blues on bucktails all morning at the south end of Island Beach State Park.
