With seas remaining rough (the Jamaica from Brielle has cancelled Wednesday's trip), it's a good thing that big bluefish have been providing plenty of action in the calm waters of bays and rivers. Capt. Vinnie Vetere of Katfish Charters in Great Kills was thinking about getting some protection from this morning's NE wind and heavy rain by running up the Hudson River, but instead trolled Mo-Jos in the lee of Staten Island to find big bass before anchoring on them for a good catch on chunks and live bunkers without interference from blues.

Raritan Bay striper fishing has been very spotty lately, and many anglers are attributing that to the movement upriver of the Hudson River stock to participate in renewing that stock which has provided us with great fishing the last couple of years. Those spawners will soon be dropping back into saltwater to feed again, and we should soon see the migratory spawned-out stripers from Virginia and Maryland moving up the coast to provide action along the Shore for anglers who have been disappointed so far.
