foot in the surf beside
Absecon Inlet in town

The shore anglers also
banked the blues and
stripers from the back bay.

Sea bass fishing
got off to a good start
on May 15, opening day of
sea bass season, on
the Heavy Hitter, Cape May,
in 120-foot depths
on the ocean. The anglers
limited out, and the fish
were surprisingly good-sized.
Charters were also going
to fish for black drum
on Delaware Bay
beginning the next

In four trips
to Manasquan Inlet,
George Horvath
from Trenton tagged
and released an
out-of-season fluke,

He also lost a fluke.

The blue. The fishing
was slow because
of cold water, George said.
He fished with an
Ava jig with a teaser.
The fluke bit the jig,
and the blue
hit the teaser.

Here. We. Go.

Hmm, which one’s
going to win the pool?

The fishing was cleaning up
on them, pretty good
fishing, including for
sizable, a report said.
Some of the anglers
limited out, and the rest
came close. Charters and
open-boat trips were
sailing for them.

A 23-1/2-pound
striped bass from the
Absecon Inlet area in
mid-May at Absecon Bay
Sportsman Center, Absecon.
Larger stripers were
definitely on the move, the
shop reported. That meant
they were sliding out of
spawning habitat and beginning
to migrate the ocean
close to shore, heading
toward cooler water to
the north for summer. This
angler stopped in because
he thought the fish weighed
heavier than 30 pounds,
according to a friend’s scale,
and wanted to grab the
shop’s annual $100 gift certificate
for the year’s first striper
30 pounds or heavier. But the
the shop’s scale showed that
the fish weighed less. This
is the time of year
when that prize
is usually won.
