I hear that fishermen have been out on nice days trying the Island Beach State Park and Seaside surf with salted clams.
Last year the first (striper) fish was taken on worms at Island beach around march 6th.
The Charters will start next week with bait for stripers but will concentrate on cod and ling. Some big cod upwards of 30 pounds have been reported out of the boats at Brielle. They reported mostly sea bass and ling, cod, pollock and white hake mixed in.
How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.
