Anglers catch five 50-pound stripers last night

The striped bass bite was good over the weekend, and it exploded again on Wednesday night. “The ledge broke wide open,” said Al Conti who weighed five fish over 50 pounds at Snug Harbor Marina.

Johnny Martini caught two of them.

Ken Ferrara, Jr. said the fish were shunning eels early this week, but he lured several bass over 35 pounds to the boat by chumming with menhaden chunks.

Don Hentschel caught a 42.5-pound bass this week, said Mike Wade of Watch Hill Outfitters.

Fluke fishing is good off the northeast corner of the island, Conti said.
