Off this past moon, some noteworthy catches of striped bass throughout the bay were made, but unfortunately, with little consistency. Why is that?
Well it’s a combination of things; apparently the fish stocks are a bit off, plus the bay itself is still in a recovery mode, so to speak, from the aftermath of Sandy and a brutal winter. Hopefully, this will be corrected as time goes by.
Aboard the Jamaica Bay charter boat “Karen Ann,” Captain Frank grinded out this past week, putting together a catch most mornings, some bigger bass at that too. I guess being a Rockaway native and fishing the bay for 40 years accounts for something.
Fluke fishing seems to be coming along, and that should improve daily.
Bluefish also have made a comeback and it seemed at times bait couldn’t be in the water for more than five minutes.
