Amberg said a friend released a blue of about 15 pounds, a keeper striper, and a short bass when those fish trapped bunkers between a jetty and the beach. He saw blues in the 10-to-15-pound class plus bass ranging from barely short up to 25 pounds being caught on shad lures and metals as bunkers were pushed onto the beach.
Atlantic Highlands blackfishing December 27 27 December 2015 Capt. Tom Made our 3 4 day blackfishing trip again today and it was not as good as it has been. We plan on fishing everyday this week including New Years Day (weather permitting) leaving at 7 30 am and returning between 2 30 and 3pm.
It was a finicky bite with the togs but the guys worked hard all day and several ended up with limits including Palisades Kenny, Wayne Pinder, Green Brook, NJ, and Tom Hollywood, Sr., Staten Island, NY. A couple just missed their limits and everyone went home with at least a couple of nice sized fish for the holidays.
