Stripers have been caught from the beach the last couple of days. The stripers were in the 20-28 pound class. All the stripers I know of have been caught on live bunker or fresh clam. The bass have not made a showing on the beach in great numbers, yet.The Delaware bay bite is red hot! Everybody I know that is fishing the bay from the rips in Cape May to the Maurice River has limited out with cow stripers many over 45 pounds.The inshore tog bite around Cape May has been good. Sea bass fishing has been excellent for the few captains that know were to fish in State waters. As you know federal waters are closed to sea bass fishing until spring. Anytime you are going to pay to go fishing make sure the captain has a reputation for catching fish. When a guy passes a captains course by no means does that make him a fishermen, let a lone a good one. I have spent many hours spec fishing this year in Cape May co. NJ and I only have one spec for my effort. The dredging operation along our beaches maybe the reason for the lack of specs this year in our waters.The water temperature is 57.9.
