SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 9 UPDATE CHARTERED MONDAY, 11 10 A lot of actions with plenty of big blues on jigs, some shorts and a keeper striper. Next open trip on Tuesday and all conditions are in our favor for a successful striper trip.
11 09 14 Another nice day on the water with mainly regulars looking to have some action with blackfish. It was not the fishing we had yesterday with the fish not biting as aggressively but the guys were still able to pick at the tog.
Instead of just Sunday we have to decided to go striper fishing on Saturday, and blackfishing on Sunday (which is the opening of the blackfish season, where you can keep 6 instead of just one). Why couldn't they open the season on Sat After Nov. 16, we will continue to sail just weekends for blackfish though Nov. and Dec. (weather permitting, of course).
The Jamaica is also leaving earlier for stripers this Monday to Thursday at 6 a. m. -- and has added an afternoon sailing from 2 to 8 p. m. those days The Shore has produced few stripers the last several days, but Capt. Rob Semkewyc ran east the last two days with his Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands. The Golden Eagle from Belmar reported making a long run to get into some keeper bass plus blues on Saturday, but on Sunday it was mostly shorts and many fewer blues.
