Capt. Dave from Absecon Bay Sportsman Center’s charters caught striped bass well, pretty consistently, on the back bay, Curt from the shop said. The legal-sized on the last couple of trips were only slots, but that was something to eat. The trips fished with livelined spots and Gulp Nemesis. A striper in the 30 pounds was weighed the other day at the store that was eeled from Absecon Channel where it leads into Absecon Inlet. Some stripers, the big migrators, were boated on the nearby ocean, but lots more were taken farther north. Lots were still coming. The migration might become full-on locally after the current storm. Stripers in the bay tend to be younger fish that live there year-round, too young to migrate. Stripers were sometimes angled in the surf. Blackfishing was supposedly good at jetties and other inshore structure. The bag limit will be increased Friday. In the ocean, blackfish held closer to shore, and the best population of sea bass held farther out, like in 80 to 100 feet of water. Live spots, green crabs and eels are stocked. Fresh clams in the shell and shucked are usually carried. Anglers might want to telephone to confirm whether fresh bunker are in.
