Leif Pettersen used his fly rod to release three stripers up to 31 inches at Deal on Saturday evening, but only hooked two 17-to-18-inch bass Sunday morning. Dave Lilly of Hazlet got out Sunday afternoon to troll stretch plugs in the back of Raritan Bay for non-stop action that produced nine bass up to 26 pounds in two hours before the storm forced him in.
October 30th, 2016 After having three days of excellent striper fishing, today the fish would not cooperate. With Miss Belmar's 3 engines and a total of 2,100 horsepower, she is the first boat to the fishing grounds every day and we guarantee it.

October 30, 2016 10-30-16 The morning was a little slow, we decided to drift for a while and we had mainly short sea bass. we moved into deeper water and anchored, the action picked up with more keeper bass coming over the rail.
Had the end of the tide and no current, read plenty of Bait and fish where we caught them yesterday but no takers until 10 am when we finally got some outgoing current. Caught a handful of fish at the end of the day in the Ocean where we had much more current and a better drift.
10 30 16 It was a very nice weekend with both the weather and the fish cooperating. We have been starting inshore to put some nice blackfish in the coolers before heading offshore a bit to finish the day with a mixed bag of porgies, seabass along with a few triggerfish and blowfish.
