Ocean striper and bluefish jigging has been poor despite the abundance of blues in the rivers and bays. Capt. Joe Massa put his crew on My III Sons from Morgan Marina into five stripers among non-stop blues while chunking in the West Bank area before finishing off with live bunkers that produced another bass.
Sunday morning looks best, with southwest winds finally arriving at 10 to 15 mph before ending up at 25 mph in the afternoon. At Seaside Park, Grumpy's Tackle reported that town's docks are producing big blues on bunker chunks -- while metal and bucktails are producing in the inlets.
The weather should be clearing for tomorrow and I have seen and caught BLUEFISH in our river this week and there are reports from commerical boats that there are BLUES in the ocean. We are sailing tomorrow and we will be in search of STRIPERS BLUES.
