The four anglers aboard Saturday reeled in and released 14 striped bass to 27 inches from the back bay, said Capt. Joe Hughes from Jersey Cape Guide Service and Sea Isle Bait & Tackle. They also let go 18 out-of-season summer flounder from the bay. Great day, Joe said, and there were double- and triple-headers. All the fish were hooked on soft-plastic lures on jigs. On Sunday, Joe and his wife and boys jigged stripers to 26 inches on the bay. The trips did no fly-fishing, but the stripers could’ve been fly-rodded, and Joe expects to fly-fish for them today. The water was 51 to 55 degrees, depending on location, with beautiful clarity that’s typical of spring. Shore anglers caught a few stripers at inlets, Joe knew. He saw no signs of bluefish yet.
