I am going to try some striper fishing tomorrow on a boat in the Raritan Bay. A friend invited me to go so I couldn't pass up th opportunity. I have been fishing for stripers in the surf but have never caught one, ever. As a matter of fact have never caught anything from the surf. I am much more of a freshwater guy. I will post pix if we get any. Wish me luck

Trolled around all day today in kingston, upper hudson. Left the dock @ 6:00am, didn't get a release on the downrigger til 11:30, which turned out to be a 23 lb, then followed by a 30 lb, and a few smaller in the 6lb range. the bite turned on around midday, but the captain had another group coming at 4:00pm, so we docked around 2:00pm, but the action was heating up. Oh well, thats fishing

Heres the fishing story from today.
Went out on a boat today for stripers. It was my first time on a boat for stripers. It was a party boat out of Atlantic Highlands. About a 90 footer I think. The boat was crowded more than I expected. However most of the other boats that left the same time we did had hardly anyone on them so I thought it was a good sign. We were using clams and throwing an ocassional jig. all in all a good trip. The boat caught about 25 stripers. Maybe a dozen keepers and the rest shorts. we also caught about 25 blues. I didn't hook up with a striper, but brought home 2 nice blues which are now in the freezer. The biggest fish went about 20 pounds, and man one guy was on fire he caught 5 stripers. I would use this boat again as the captain worked to find the fish, and the mates were first class.

Next time I go I will pic a day were the weather is not so nice.
