As fluke season came to a close this past weekend and we eagerly await for the opening of sea bass season on October 8 as well as the fall striper run, we switched gears to targeting local striped bass on light tackle.
The past few evenings have been very productive with plenty of striped bass and bluefish. We also started to see some nicer sized bass as well up to 15lbs. Surprisingly we have also been catching more striped bass than bluefish too. There are plenty of unders in the 28”-32” range as well as slot fish which we can tag and keep in the 24”-27.99” range.
The evening bite seems to be the best for the striped bass so we will be running evening trips every day of the week! There are also still plenty of blowfish around in the bay if you are looking to get the kids out or fill a cooler to bring home a nice dinner.
If you would like to get out and catch some striped bass, blowfish, or book a wreck trip for sea bass in October, don’t hesitate to call! We still have a couple of weekend dates available in November for striped bass but we also just opened up several weekday dates to allow for more availability! If you are interested in getting out please give us a call to book your trip. Call or text Captain Mike to get out on the water or send us a message through our website! (609)-709-7264
