The year’s first two
keeper striped bass
were boated on a morning
trip April 11 on Raritan Bay
on the Vitamin Sea , Keyport.

website.

So the fishing
seemed to be heating up.
A bunch of throwbacks
were also released. Bunker
flooded the water, and
gannets dove on baitfish
all over.

Charters and open-boat
trips were fishing.

The prop was serviced.
Parker Pete’s was possibly going
to bottom-fish in April,
but the real fishing
aboard begins in May
for striped bass on the ocean.
Many dates were already booked.

on the party boat
Norma-K III,
Point Pleasant Beach,
on the ocean.
Visit Norma-K III's
website.

The angling picked
throwbacks and keepers,
kept improving and was
expected to bust loose
when the water warmed
a few degrees, the boat reported.
Most keepers weighed 3 to
7 pounds on this trip.

Trips sailed for them daily.

The Tuna-Tic was
in the water and ready
to fish. The boat each
year is moved to Highlands
to fish for striped bass
on Raritan Bay, this year
from April 21 to May 12.
Afterward, the vessel is
returned to home port
in Forked River to fish the
rest of the year, including
for big stripers in the ocean
after May 12. The fish
return to the ocean after
spawning in back waters.

for the time of year,
Big Mohawk reported.
