Striper Adventures Fishing
types and when they are around.
Striped Bass. Stripers are great
fish to catch. They usually show up sometime in the second week of May
and are around until at least the end of October. We fish for them that
whole time, and the majority of our trips are striper/bluefish trips.
Bluefish. Bluefish are nasty rugged fighters that pound for
pound fight better than a bass of the same size. They show up sometime
in June and hang around normally until sometime in October. They prefer
warmer water than stripers.
Flounder. Flounder are flat fish with both eyes on the same side
and are bottom feeders. We can fish for these starting in June and they
are around until sometime in September. They go into deeper water as
the season progresses.
Tuna. Bontio and False Albacore are the primary tunas we target
and they donít usually show up until sometime in July when the water has
warmed up pretty well. They hang around until sometime in September to
December, depending upo the weather. We target them for specific trips
only from July to September.
ugliest looking bottom fish we target, they are also the most tenacious
fighters. These fish are around from May to December but we donít
target them on our trips until sometime in October when the catch
regulations change. Most tautog trips occur between October 18 and
