The boat ended up with one keeper bass, a short, and 12 to 15 blues. Here is a pic of the lone striper The Golden Eagle from Belmar went south and made long drifts over good readings that produced few bites as they had a pick of more bass than blues.
Lilly said the water temperature was only 48 degrees --a big change from the 53 degrees recorded Wednesday down the beach on Ty Man, after it was only 43 degrees in Sandy Hook Bay. Joe Blaze of Brielle walked into a mass of stripers on a huge school of peanut bunkers Thanksgiving afternoon at Sea Girt and caught lots of them on his fly rod while putting a friend into his first stripers with a spinning rod and a plug.
