On the morning trip (8am) everyone had fun catching all the blue fish they wanted and there was no rain. On the afternoon trip (1 30) there was a little drizzle rain but it did not stop everyone from having fun catching all they wanted again.
A final effort with the Spoons in deeper water saved the day for us as we went 2 for 3 on a couple of nice Bass. It was a calm day on the ocean with just an occasional shower and it was fun fishing with Dan's crew.

Capt. Rob Semkewyc has had the same problem finding stripers among the blues on his Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands, but he's happy with the steady action on both bait and jigs with blues averaging 12 pounds. At Seaside Park, Betty Nick's reported 30-pound stripers pushed a school of bunkers onto the beach in town during the morning.
