Kayak is absolutely right. I spent all day off Lavallette/Ortley/Seaside and had the single best day of my life fishing. Final count was 10 bass, one blue. Stripers ranged from 22 inches up to 32 (it was hard to let that guy go, but...). The one I kept was fat as hell and full of intact peanuts. As it started to get truly dark, a full out blitz was on off NJ avenue. They hit just about everything. Today I had TWO double headers (teaser and Ava, teaser and shad), and there are still blues out there. Sunday should be great. I can't go, but I figure I ought to end the season with the day I had today. Have fun. I strongly suggest people get out tomorrow...calling for light west wind and warm air.
