    Capt. Bob of the Gambler stayed tied up last week due to the weather but is expected to get back on the grounds as the weather warms up a bit. "We look forward to fishing again once we have a break in weather," Bob said last week.

    On the Gambler, Capt. Bob said they did very well striper fishing through the end of the year and there was plenty of bait around to keep the fish biting. He was turning to cod and ling trips in January.

    On the Gambler, Capt. Bob said they had to cancel Friday's trip when only a few guys showed up; but after a little boat-maintenance the crew went outside for a little shake down and found birds working a half mile from the inlet. "Immediate action on small bass," Capt. Bob said, reporting that fish hit shads, AVAs and teasers. "Caught 20 or 30 fish in the span of an hour, released all," he said, reporting fish ranged small to slot-sized though he thinks the bigger ones are still around. He then got out over the weekend with patrons and caught shorts, slots and a few keepers. Don't forget the Gambler has those slot fish tags from the state. They're not striper fishing Friday or Saturday this week because they'll be headed offshore for black sea bass. Spots are available.

    The Gambler is fishing for striped bass daily, as long as weather permits according to Capt. Bob Bogan who fished on Friday and Saturday and saw some slower fishing, though he said there were still a few bluefish around. "We worked our way north, as far as the Shrewsbury rocks both days," Bob said, reporting that they read bait along with some bass. "Most of the day, we saw more life than we caught," he noted. Folks working hard with croc spoons, shads and AVAs are taking fish, a bunch of spiny dogs on the inshore grounds too.
