Allen Riley of South Plainfield was at the latter area Thursday morning when there was a brief shot after 8 a. m. when John Mazzeo of South Plainfield hooked a 27-inch striper Reports from the south weren't any better. There was an impressive weigh-in at Betty Nick's -- a 21 5 16-pound striper on bunker at Area 7 in the park.
The last half of the day was decent to good fishing off the beach on 10-17 lb monster blues. 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.
Had life all morning till the change of tide, fish rolling and moving fast with many boats in Hot pursuit. Stopped with fish all around the boat and catch just a couple as they moved off fast, move same thing.
