Had a great day fishing the Stafford PBA Striper Tournament on Nov 19th with neighbors Mike, Wally and Bob. We tried live lining off Seaside but were met with an abundance of dogfish. Got up on the troll and boxed three on Mojo’s. We then got a call from a friend to go north. With basically calm seas we ran up to the Ortley Beach area. We were immediately into fish as they were breaking surface near the boat. Lots of light rod action.
We were looking for fish close to 38″ but couldn’t seem to get past the 34 – 35 ” mark. We quickly boxed 4 more fish and tried getting one more bonus fish to tag and limit out. Unfortunately, everything was larger and was released. We didn’t finish in the $$ for the tournament but it was a great day on the water!
