Earlier this week I had return client Ian Habich and his friend Christian Gruber on a 4hr Bay/Inlet trip. We worked the first hour and a half throwing soft plastics around the Barnegat Inlet. Both anglers got bit off by Bluefish, before finding hookups on short Striped Bass. The bass were promptly released after a quick pic. We fished the remaining trip looking for keeper Fluke, in which we find close to 20 shorts with 3 being 17 7/8! Another few weeks and they'll be keepers! Tough day on the keeper front, but we'll be back at it again!
