Pat Gallen takes first place in the Spring Derby and the In-Store tournaments for striped bass! His bass was 30.75″ and 10.7# caught in Ship Bottom using salted clams. And the bluefish are here! Two Spring Derby bluefish weigh-ins both caught in Surf City both using bunker. It’s a beautiful day to get out there and fish! Bass and bluefish out there – clams, bunker… go for it!
