Photo Gallery January 2023 by Jim Hutchinson, Jr. Jack Famularo with a striped bass released from the Sour Kraut during the fall run on Raritan Bay. Rebecca Intrabartolo caught the biggest fish of her life back in November during an all-out blitz in Northern Monmouth County, a beautiful-46 inch striper that whacked an NLBN plastic. Taryn Leigh said she had a blast this past fall on the bass, both stripers and largemouth. Suffice to say, that’s certainly no schoolie there Taryn! Young Alex Johansen got his first striper ever on the beach in Belmar in November during a “bunker-busting” blitz. You can tell how nice the weather conditions were by Alex’s choice in waders! Featured in our weekly video forecast back on November 23, Olivia Fredericks shows off her personal best striper from the beach on a Striper Bites metal lip swimmer.

Twelve-year-old Sienna Sakowicz hit this 20-pound, 37-inch striper in a mini-blitz in Ocean County on Thanksgiving, hooking up on a Savage Panic Pencil. “We rushed home to join the family for turkey, but grilled striper is on the menu tomorrow,” dad Gregg said. Bob Brunish caught his personal best striped bass in November aboard Capt. Chris Dossantos’ Sea Owl out of Point Pleasant. “Chris said 50 pounds, just wanted to share,” Bob said. Charlie’s Bait ‘n’ Tackle regular Lisa Schardien fished all day and into the night until finally scoring a personal best striper of 48 inches tossing a blurple SP Minnow a few days before Thanksgiving. Cindy Flanagan with her fish of a lifetime off Point Pleasant this past fall, 35 inches and 20.2 pounds, on an old Rapala she purchased at last year’s Point Pleasant fisherman’s flea market.
