What a shame the first nice day that we could get out all week, and being the only Striper boat on the jersey coast I figured we would get at least enough people to cover expenses. Truthfully, I was even hoping for a little left over so I could get Burger King for dinner, but unfortunately this was not the case. Only a handful of fishermen showed up to give the Stripers a shot, but I knew with the cold temps all week and the full moon approaching we had a good shot to put some fish in the boat and put up a good report. So I went out with a few people, and it paid off! We kept what we were allowed and threw back even more than we kept. The fish were all nice size with the smallest being 17 lbs and the biggest 28 lbs, and as a result we threw back a bunch of beauties. Now with the weekend approaching and fish to be caught the weather report is showing gale force winds for Saturday and Sunday. So the conditions will not be favorable for the fishing nor the fishermen. That means if you want to give the Stripers a shot Monday will be your next chance. No Burger King tonight, but I'm going to have a nice Striper dinner lol. See you soon, Capt. Rob
