The Golden Eagle couldn t find any stripers today, but bottom fishing for blackfish, ling and cod was good before it got nasty on the ocean. Capt. Ron Santee started out this morning with decent striper action on bait until the current ran stronger into the wind.
Posted on April 19, 2021 Finally a decent party boat striper report It was brief and not very descriptive, but Capt. Rob Semkewyc finally had striper action to report in Raritan Bay today with his Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands. The Fishermen from that port hadn t reported when this was written, but Capt. Ron Santee did get into some striper action Sunday with a 28 1 2-inch pool winner and some shorts on bait including three for a couple of anglers.
Posted on April 18, 2021 Raritan Bay stripers still frustrating for party boats There are lots of fish marks in Raritan Bay, and charter boats continue to do well with both shorts and keepers with jigs and by trolling, but the conditions just haven t been right for party boats. See you soon, Capt. Rob The Sea Tiger from that port also struggled on its Saturday half-day trips as jigs didn t work and a switch to bait produced only a few shorts, though one angler caught three.
