The next available spaces for an open-boat trip for blackfish are on Monday on the Stray Cat, Capt. Mike said. Friday through Sunday, the first days of the five-blackfish bag limit, are sold out. One is the limit through today. A trip last Monday whacked sea bass aboard. All anglers limited out, and the fish weren’t big, but the angling was steady pulling. Porgies and blues also came in. Spaces are also available for open blackfishing Tuesday and Wednesday. More of the trips are sold out on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. But spaces are also available on Nov. 26 and 28. Room is available for open striped bass trips Nov. 27 and 29 and Dec. 4 and 6. All other dates through then are either sold out or chartered. Migrating stripers are here, Mike said. They bit at Brigantine Shoal, and a few hit off Atlantic City. Tons of baitfish moved in from the Ventnor Pier to the north in the ocean. The ocean was 57 degrees along the beach, the striper grounds. If trolled Mojos aren’t catching stripers for you, downsize. Fish lures like 4-inch Rapalas. Some anglers are dragging Mojos without catching.
