After dealing with a few boat issues early this season, the Compass Rose is back in Beach Haven and the season is under way.
I had Rocky and family out this weekend for some Trophy Striped Bass. We left the dock early and headed up the
beach in search of some bunker. We found the bunker stacked up along the beach off Surf City in about 10ft of water.
We snagged a bunch and put them in the live well for later use and live lined a few off the beach to see if we could
pull a trophy out from under the pods. We worked the area pretty hard but were unsuccessful at putting one on the family
room wall. We decided to try the GSS reef for some black bass but the fishing was slow as well and we only managed to
put one nice keeper in the box. We ended the day working the outer bars of the Little Egg Inlet with the bunker we caught
earlier in the morning. The dog sharks and small blues were all that showed up for the free meal. The day was
beautiful and the conditions were perfect-water 60-61 degree, air temp 78, winds s 10-15-doesn't get any better.
