Huge bluefish in spring close to home provided much needed action to start the season as the striped bass fishing certainly was off. We did have a few days that were awesome but overall I wouldn't call it a banner year for striped bass.
12 02 16 We had more wind today than forecast but it was west and a perfect direction for where we have been fishing lately!Green crabs and white leggers both worked today putting keepers in the coolers.
The Golden Eagle from Belmar reported most fares were able to limit on bass by jigging Krocs, swim shads and Run-Off Hammer jigs. Miss Belmar Princess reported over 60 stripers board, including a boat limit of slots - while some fares added five to six big blues.
12-2-16 Windy and cool but west winds and it kept the ocean very calm,some caught some fish,Bobby Kojak had his limit of nice Togs,some had 2 or 3 but we also had some guys only get 1 or none. tomorrow looks nice again with west winds.
