Fishing Report week ending June 4, 2005

Fishing really picked up this week with the warmer temps and clearer water in the river. Still a lot of floating debris in all shapes and sizes so care is really needed navigating the waters. We averaged about 35 stripers on each trip, with keeper sized fish caught each day. Caught 2 over 34 inches on Friday, and a 32inch fish on Saturday. Groups this week were sport minded and we released all fish to be caught again. I have no problems with people keeping fish for the dinner table but like it when we can truly practice catch and release. We caught a 27 inch tagged fish last week. I called in the tag and found the fish was tagged in Nov. 2004 in NJ waters. The fish was real healthly and had grown about 3 inches since Nov. Another interesting thing this past week, I was out netting herring in the river and picked up 3 Menhadden (Bunker) in the net. It has been many a year since I have seen or heard of them in the rivers and it maybe a great sign of things to come. I remember about 7 years ago when the Bunker were so thick you could snag them with treble hooks and then live line them for huge stripers. Maybe the old times are returning. Certainly the Striper fishing is better than it has been in many years. Tight Lines, Capt. Joel
