Some nice keepers and some slots we had to throw back the slots today as the fish were in NY waters and the NJ bonus tag is not valid in NY waters. The fish were not easy to catch with all the boats running threw them but we did what we could do.
We had a small crowd of 18 today and it is very windy, but we are catching stripers and blues, some small, some jumbo!We ended the day with a couple dozen stripers, three of which were over 25 lbs and one was about 30 lbs, along with some blues both small and jumbo!
Atlantic Highlands bottom fishing October 28 28 October 2016 Capt. Tom Due to the weather we have not fished the past two days. The weather for tomorrow looks good so we will be fishing for seabass, porgies and blackfish.
Yet, the Golden Eagle and Miss Belmar Princess from Belmar got into large stripers plus some blues of various sizes under birds despite rough seas. I found no sign of fish in the Spring Lake surf this morning, but Bob Matthews reported from Fisherman's Den in Belmar Marina that some big bass were beached at Long Branch.
