5/17 through 5/19 - Striped Bass and Bluefish

We had 5 trips this past weekend, so I didn’t have a chance to update our fishing reports. We worked both the bay & inlet areas to catch and release over 30 Striped Bass along with 10 Bluefish on a few of the trips. We worked live, fresh, and artificial lures in the back to hook up with the Stripers which ran from 22 to 26 inches. Our Ocean Striped Bass trips have been tough with only a sporadic troll bite occurring within the 5hr window, so we have usually ended in the bay/inlet for Stripers and Bluefish.
