Three Spring Derby striper weigh-ins yesterday and 4 striper weigh-ins all together! Danny Federico started off the day with the striped bass he caught the night before – 9.84#, 31.75″ caught in Beach Haven on clams. Then Pat Gallen came in with a 16.44#, 34 7/8″ caught in Holgate, also on clam. Then the biggest of the day, Pat Presutto with a 18.58#, 37 5/8″ striper caught in Beach Haven on bunker! Shortly after that, Frank Brown, who came in to the store in the morning and bought a nice 12′ Penn Battalion with a nice Penn Conflict reel, very happily brought in a beautiful 17.4#, 35″ striped bass caught with that set-up he just purchased! Other reports were of oversized striped bass – Rob Zarko released one measuring about 44″, and Jaime Gramley is trying for the winning fish but landed a couple that were too big, one at 43″.

In the bay, Tony had another nice weakfish yesterday morning and the fluke are out there too.
