A Fishing Report
I spoke to the boat on the way in yesterday and Capt Steve was excited about the striped bass fishing. There has been a large body of jumbo bass off the Jersey coast for over a week now, and boats are coming in with epic catches. Some of these fish are topping the fifty pound mark. Bottom fishing has been a struggle due to the influx of dogfish. The big catches are coming from the boats running thirty or more miles offshore. The small boats are doing well with blackfish too. This is the time of year they bite on the inshore grounds and the season should be open now, not in the winter, when you are lucky to even catch one.
