Fisherman Magazine Update

The social media blogosphere is going crazy once again this week as a 57-inch striped bass is caught and released on Delaware Bay; the 60-pound scale aboard Capt. Tim Tanghare’s Clean Sweep bottomed out, with online estimates going 70 pounds or better (keeping in mind that the current world record is a 54-incher, while the last one taped out at 53 inches). More big Chesapeake post-spawn stripers may soon mix with currently spawning Delaware stripers, making for an interesting June run along the coast. Stripers are being taken on clam and bunker chunks along the frontside beaches of Cape May, Atlantic and Ocean County especially, while the bluefish invasion continues throughout the NJ/DE region. Early black drum reports have the biggest catches on the Delaware side of the bay, but that big boomer action is assuredly underway. One week to go for Garden State fluke anglers, and while Central and North coast party boats continue to sail for cod and pollock, the local shops have been especially busy with deep discounts geared towards next weekend’s Jersey opener.
