SPOTLIGHT ON STRIPERS

SPOTLIGHT ON STRIPERS
Looks like everybody got their keeper aboard Capt. Ralph’s Last Lady on Veteran’s Day; good striper action throughout the North Jersey region this week as the bite finally intensifies after an extremely mild start to the fall.
 Striped bass fishing stole the spotlight on the north coast this past week. While weather and sea conditions were not pristine and most boats spent a couple of days in port, early and late week fishing served up the best fishing of the fall so far. It was trolling in the bay during the early part of the week for mixed size bass, while the heavy duty fishing came over the weekend with the inshore waters inundated with schools of bunker and 20- to 40-pound plus fish gorging them selves on the baitfish. On the bottom fishing front, sea bass, dominated the catch with some big porgies and decent size tog filling out the menu. With the whitechin bag limit going up this week blackfish are sure to take over the number one spot for sinker bouncers. Last but not least winter flounder continue to stack up in Shark River and catching your two fish bag limit is the rule not the exception.
