and I am going light on my count for 15 people we had over 700 stripers easy. See you soon, If not Happy Holidays, Capt. RobBig Bob He broke his old SEA HUNTER record today with 116 stripers That's going to be hard to beat
Posted on December 19, 2020 Sea Hunter finds loads of stripers Capt. Rob Semkewyc didn t know what he would find with his Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands on his first trip after the storm, and was surprised to get into his best volume fishing of a great fall season with over over 700 stripers jigged by 15 anglers. Jerry Lasko didn t have a good report from the surf as he and Maren Toleno did nothing both in the Ocean County surf and at IBSP.
Posted on December 18, 2020 Favorable weekend forecast The storm made a mess of the ocean, but that condition should change rapidly with a forecast of light winds and modest seas over the weekend. Small craft warnings come down at 6 p. m. Saturday starts with north winds at a mere 5-10 knots and seas down to 2 to 3 feet as the wind shifts to west in the afternoon.
The big swell won t do inshore bottom fishing any good, but wrecks far offshore should continue to produce lots of jumbo sea bass and porgies. The Jamaica from Brielle continues to add trips to the deep water wrecks where fishing should actually improve as water temperatures decrease.
Nasty 25 to 30 knots northeast fish started hitting at 615 am until 8 am red hot. If I was casting all the time i was trying to warm my hands up probably would ve had more fish The forecast shifts to a storm warning at 6 p. m. with NE gusts to 50 knots and seas up to 14 feet plus snow and rain.
Tomorrow starts with northwest winds at 15-20 knots with gusts to 25 before diminishing to 10-15 in the afternoon. Capt. Rob Semkewyc had a fine striper trip today on his Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands.
Posted on December 14, 2020 Stripers remain, but party boats leaving With waters still relatively mild, striped bass have been reluctant to leave the Jersey Shore, but boat options for anglers are disappearing as a mid-week northeaster gets closer. Capt. Rob Semkewyc had a slot bass for everyone from among the many small fish plus some keepers on his Sea Hunter.
