Sounded like striped bass bit well yesterday in rivers, said Capt. Dave from Absecon Bay Sportsman Center. Wind was finally calmer and more fishable that day. No stripers were brought to the shop. But he heard about a couple of keepers among plenty of throwbacks caught. A photo of one of the keepers was posted on the shop’s Facebook page. Plenty of white perch chewed in the same rivers like the Mullica. This was all mostly on bloodworms. But more and more stripers swiped lures like floating or diving stick baits and rubber shads. A few stripers began to be reported from back bays and the backs of inlets, too. Fishing there probably became worthwhile. Bloodworms are stocked, and suppliers seemed to have no problem digging them up. No grass shrimp are stocked. Frozen clams are carried, and the supplier said he’ll work on obtaining fresh soon. The year’s first keeper striper was brought to the store on March 1, covered in a previous report here. The angler won a gift certificate to the store for that. Prizes remain for the second and third and the year’s first that a woman, girl and boy bring in. See details about the prizes on the store’s website. The prize for the first keeper released was already awarded, too, also covered in a previous report here.
