Today I ran Maureen Klause’s 27′ Contender to go look for stripers on 16# test. We had absolutely amazing weather, flat calm, sunny, and temps in the upper 50s. The water was clean and 51 degrees today. We ran out of Great Egg Inlet and pointed the bow North. We stopped earlier to work a few lumps on the way up but we didn’t see much going on and heard there was a bite further up LBI, so we made the sprint and got in the mix. The fleet was thick but we did manage to pick at a few quality stripers primarily on Mojos. We did catch one on a purple Bomber too.
We moved around a couple times and had no success but on the way home we saw a massive bird play just barely outside that pesky 3 mile line. We trolled tight to the line and picked up a couple more stripers that we released and the birds and fish continued to move offshore so we called it a day and headed home. No record fish today but great day on the water!
