Posted on June 15, 2021 Blues interfering with striper bite in some areas Bluefish seem to be showing up in the warmer waters of Ocean County as Betty Nick s Fishing Club members were posting shots of small to medium choppers that were hitting just about everything. Tommy Cox had been casting a small plug that produced three small bass, and we knew Jim Louro had caught a 27-incher on a Band of Anglers Dart Spin We landed three stripers during a brief try with sand fleas and I enjoyed a good battle before releasing a 30-incher.
I definitely cant say that we are off to a great start this season but we are catching some keepers and some shorts. Today was probably the best action with the shorts that we have had but yesterday may have been the best day with the keepers.
Posted on June 14, 2021 Surf warms some stripers bite The spring surf striper bite on mole crabs (sand fleas) has been slow to start, but Vinny D Anton caught three schoolies yesterday morning to get things started in a very comfortable surf. I joined him this morning and watched Tommy Cox release his first surf striper of the season while Vinny also hooked a short.

Posted on June 12, 2021 Ocean still rough, but sea bass continue biting There s been a big change recently from 90 degree days and light winds to a nasty sea and sweatshirt temperatures, but the sea bass bite continues and the Sunday forecast is for a shift to southeast winds at just 5-10 knots Though big bluefish are chopping up mo-jos being trolled in Raritan Bay, there have been some eating-size blues hitting jigs in the ocean for party boat anglers. Wednesday produced a boat limit of 3-7-pounders before they finished up with sea bass.
Posted on June 11, 2021 Less east wind may help tomorrow Though some fishing trips were called off today due to east winds, it may be more fishable tomorrow with those winds down to 10-15 knots except for gusts to 20 around mid-day. Pleasant reported a great trip June 9-10 for the Doug Stark party as they added two bigeyes and six yellowfins to lots of bluefins.
