Boats are crushing striped bass as the hot fall pace continues

Striper fishing was good Monday with party boat captains heading home early with boats limits of fish before the clocks hit noon.

It is difficult to say how long this turbulent pace will continue, but last year this wave continued until the fall. As long as the bait stays local, the sea bass are likely to stay close to the shorelines, fattening them up.

An angler on a Queen Mary party boat landed a striped bass during a fishing trip Monday.

Capt. Rich Falcone aboard the Golden Eagle boat reported the boat’s limits by about 10 a.m. Monday. This came after an excellent day of fishing on Sunday, where they saw drifts for an hour of non-stop fishing. Falcon said the bass readings have been huge on the fish finder. The schools were full of fish in the 28- to 31-inch range, the current size limit, and the sign of additional hatch-sized fish, so his jockey got out of the boat with food for the table.
