Capt. Vinny Vetere, of Katfish Charters from Great Kills, said the weather was beautiful, but striper fishing was picky. Vinnie D'Anton had no luck in the river, but moved to the Belmar surf to release a couple of small bass on his Chug Bug.

The power drifting saved us in the keeper department as we had several very nice fish once again. Several guys had 3 and 4 fish each including Tom in the Stern, Tom in the bow, Joe B, Mark, Mike also had two great fish at 6.
Moved on when the current died completely and had more nice fish, including the 8 pound 8 ounce pool winner, on a couple of drifts. Tim Holiday, Tamango, Fl., took the pool with a very nice 8 pound 8 ounce fish!
