Weather conditions are improving along the coast and striped bass are being taken along the jetties and oceanfront.  Captain Ray of Tiderunner Charters has been able to get out for short periods during the day and he has been able to hook up on stripers in the 18-23 inch class on chartreuse and white Clouser Minnows.  Trips have been short due to temperatures and windy conditions.  As conditions continue to improve and the water temperature moves into the fifties improved fishing will follow.

Weather conditions improved enough to give us a chance to fish along the oceanfront and jetties.  Today's trip yielded  two stripers and two sea herring.  Stripers were in the 20 inch class and the sea herring were of similar size.  Fishing was challenging with limited visibility due to recent rains.  High rollers continued along the oceanfront preventing us from fishing oceanfront structure.

Fished the later portion of the incoming tide along the oceanfront and the outgoing tide in the back country.  Landed 9 stripers and 2 bluefish.  All except one fish were caught along the oceanfront.  Most of the fish caught along the oceanfront were on chartreuse and white closures, half and half, and jiggle flies.  Anglers later moved to chartreuse jerk shads and continued to catch stripers.  The back country was slow, landing a small striper on a surface plug.  Stripers were in the 17-19 inch class and bluefish were 21 inches.
