Lots of small but
some bonus-tag and
keeper stripers bit,
and trips fished
for stripers daily.

The angling wasn't
bad, not bad
at all, a report said.

Trips blackfished daily.

A 10-1/2-pound
blackfish in late November
on the party boat
Porgy IV, Cape May.
No double-digit ones
are usually hooked
aboard in November, but
you never know. December and
January are usually when
the big bite. Bigger ones
than this could be
expected as the water
becomes colder.

Fishing resumed
on Nov. 29, on a trip
for blackfish, with Last Lady
Fishing Charters, Neptune,
after being weathered
out for days.

The angling was slow,
and only nine were bagged,
though more than 100
throwbacks were hooked,
in seas and wind that
were still rough.
Wind screamed, albeit from west.
West knocks down
seas rolling in from east
close to shore and
would calm the ocean
by the next day.
Forecasts looked better
for the days after
the trip. Charters and
individual-reservation trips
are fishing for blackfish
and striped bass. One of
the trips will also wreck-fish
offshore on Dec. 15 for
big sea bass, large porgies,
cod and pollock.

The party boat
Big Mohawk, Belmar,
resumed blackfishing that
day, too, and the
catches were decent.

Fishing for striped bass
was good before
wind kept most trips docked
in November's final week
on the Vitamin Sea,
Keyport. The fish were
mostly throwbacks but
some slots and keepers
mixed in. See the
metal diamond jig in
the angler's hand– click the
shot to enlarge it. The bass were
jigged. This was on the ocean,
and Raritan Bay’s striper
fishing never really
developed this season.
Having the weather to
sail is even more of
a factor on the ocean.

One of the throwbacks.
They gave up action, though.
Charters and open-boat
trips fished.
