TOUGH STRIPER FISHING

Posted By J. B. Kasper, June 11, 2018
TOUGH STRIPER FISHING
Capt. Dave Rooney (second from right next to tournament director Frank Crescitelli) and crew won the Gray FishTag division in last Friday’s Manhattan Cup, tagging four stripers in the first 3-1/2 hours of the tournament to take home a 50-inch Gray Taxidermy striper mount. “The fishing was tough,” Capt. Crescitelli said, “but some of the teams, including the many donated boats carrying the 22 wounded warriors attending as tournament’s guests, caught a mix of striped bass and bluefish. Bluebird weather can make it hard to put together a good catch, but it did make for a great day on the water for everyone.”
It was another interesting week of fishing along the northern coast. After some windy weather started off the week conditions improved by mid week and the fishing broke open with some good numbers of stripers moving into the waters off Sandy Hook on Wednesday afternoon and evening. Fishing was good on Thursday, but shifted to evening fishing late in the week as boat traffic got heaver. Big bass are also still being caught in the ocean when conditions are favorable. The early week saw cocktail blues in good numbers outside, with some bigger slammers showing up over the weekend. Fluke fishing was spotty during the early part of the week but saw better catches as the week progressed. Sea bass fishing took a hit from the winds early in the week, but it too picked up later in the week and over the weekend.
