Fishing for stripers is at its peak. We are catching big stripers and big numbers.  We boated one fish last week that weighed right at 30 pounds and had several days that we boated over 30 fish.    Live Bluebacks fished at 60-80 ft. depths are producing the best for the stripes. Today was a little tough […]

Striper action was hot last week. We didnt catch large numbers of stripers  but the size is picking up.  I fished a charter last Friday afternoon and boated a striper right at 25 pounds.

Striper fishing is still fantastic. We have had some of the best catches of the summer this week. I had charters Monday- Wednesday and boated over 20 fish on each outing.
