"Had to show my Saltist some love with these burners," said James Buonanno, Jr. while putting his Daiwa to the test over the weekend fishign for false albacore. JB was using Hogy Lures.
Raritan Bay and surrounding waters are still loaded with schools of baitfish, which have had no incentive to move out of the bays and rivers because of the above normal water temps. As a result small stripers and blues, with some weakfish remain in a holding pattern along the lower side of the bay and in the backwater areas of the rivers. Bigger bass are still holding in the lower Hudson River and New York Harbor. However the armada of boats fishing for them has been putting them off the feed once the boat traffic gets heavy. Albies have been moving in and out of the mouth of the bay with a morning bite in the rips off Sandy Hook providing the best action for them. Bottom fishermen are still into excellent numbers of porgies and are playing catch and release with plenty of tog after taking their one fish limit. Sinker bouncers will be able to add some knuckleheads to their catch once the season re-poems this week.
