Posted on October 22, 2020 Big stripers explode in NY NJ Bight They took a long time for them to arrive from the east, but big stripers finally flooded into local waters Wednesday as Capt. Vinny Vetere reported releasing 15 bass between 40 and 50 pounds from his Katfish out of Great Kills. Chuck Many put Alex Katyan and Mike Michael into bass up to 47 pounds on Tyman from Highlands that morning despite the fog.
Started out on the tuna grounds, very slow to start, decided to make a run and worked out great for the crew. Landed a dozen mahi to 15lbs, then landed tiles to 25lbs, had the choice to go back for tuna or deep drop for swords, guys wanted some sword steaks, made a drop 15 minutes later we were tight and landed a nice 200lb sword!
Posted on October 21, 2020 Joe Julian was a Shore legend If a book is ever written about the early days of fishing along the northern N. J. Shore, Joe Julian will surely be among the leading characters, The owner of Julian s Tackle in Atlantic Highlands passed away last week at 94. Joe, who also had a big ice business across the road, popularized his Montauk bunker spoons which feature a single large Siwash hook that was a big improvement over the huge built-in hook on standard bunker spoons which required the addition of a large treble hook to be effective but damaged a lot of stripers and blues that were to be released.
