There was a flutter of activity yesterday in the surf! We had two striper weigh-ins here yesterday – Danny Federico caught a 30″ and 8.08# in Holgate using surf clams (no photo) and Pat Gallen does it again with this 30.5″ and 9.92# striper in Ship Bottom on bunker. The Shapiros had one too big and a couple too small! Steve G. came in and bought some clams and bunker and got this keeper, Derek has this nice 35″ that was safely released and then Jamie got a keeper and his buddy George got a 34″ safely released. There was another bluefish weighed-in from Barnegat Light and our $25 bluefish gift card is still up for grabs but you must be registered in the store tournament to be eligible!
