This A. M we ran an open boat Tog trip and had to make several drops to put a catch together. The first drop we got a quick handful of keepers and then it died,so we took a steam to another piece but that was no good either just a keeper and some shorts.
That blog follows Jumbo sea bass fishing on far offshore wrecks is hitting a peak. Capt. Howard Bogan reported many sea bass limits on Friday's trip of the Jamaica from Brielle along with plenty of big porgies and some blues and cod.
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.
