05.23.10 Just missed big stripers in Asbury Park

Even though I am in all out trout mode, I still can't help checking in on the striper fishing which is less then a mile from my house. High tide today was at 450pm and I got down to the 8th Ave jetty around 615, and missed it by an hour. These two guys caught a 27 pound and 29 pound striper each, and a few just smaller. They stayed around to see if any schools of bunker or pods of fish were coming back in. They say it's been a really good spring so far, and will hopefully get better. Oh yeah, West Branch Tuesday morning followed by the Mainstem in the afternoon!
