Today’s stripers were real drag screaming gladiators, they put my light gear to the test for sure. We caught some nice fish during our 3 hour trip and earned everyone. The stripers we caught today looked to be resident fish. The weather forecast has the outlook for NJ red drum and speckled trout fishing looking like a wast of time. The upside is, we still have time for the conditions to fall in place and striped bass to catch.
