like at a tropical destination,

while sight-casting to
striped bass on the bay
with light-tackle and flies,
including popper lures
and popper flies that draw
explosive, visual attacks.
Coming up, summer flounder
trips on the bay beginning Friday,
opening day of flounder season.

George Horvath from Trenton’s
biggest fish this year.
He banked the fish
on homemade cornmeal bait

opened on May 15,
the angling was slower
that day on the
party boat Norma-K III,
Point Pleasant Beach.

Then a storm
canceled the angling the
next four days. When the
trips resumed Sunday,
the fishing was good.
Most of the small crowd
of anglers limited out.

Big striped bass were
eased from the surf at
Cape May just before and
during the big storm last
week, Hands Too Bait & Tackle
in the town reported. Most
came from Delaware Bay's shore,
but they began to bite in
the ocean surf, too. This one
is a 31-pounder from the
ocean. Cape May is at the
confluence of the ocean
and bay.
