Barnegat Bay light tackle striped bass action continues to offer good to excellent action for all aboard the Reel Fantasea . Catch counts were a little less than last week but likely due to Fridays heavy rains and cold temps. By Sunday we were back “On ‘Em” with some nicer fish joining the mix providing some “Reel” drag burning excitement with fish approaching the 28″ keeper sizes.
Warming weather trends will also continue stoke the fires of newly arriving migrating stripers and blues as we progress into April,
I have April 7th Friday afternoon 2pm-6pm available for open or private charter and Sunday April 9th morning 6am -10am for those light tackle striper enthusiast.
Wishing everyone fair winds and calm seas,
Captain Steve Purul
