Sean W -


Left inlet around 2 PM - 44" - live bunker off Sea Watch, Colin with a 38", and a 47" successfully released


Followed Capt Freda's advice to stay coast to the pods and switch over to circle hooks after snagging.



John S - reports a lot of boats off Sea Girt/Spring Lake, rough surf. Plenty of bait but no stripers.
