He said he had heard of kingfishes doing a show, but not many. The star rocks on the piers were still getting closer, he said, but they must all return to the water alive and turned.

Noel said herring and bunker, preferred forage for striper and tassard, are thick.

Never the promoter, Feliciano has another contest in the works. This one is titled Fish Ticket. It will be free and will offer weekly prizes of $ 50, plus grand prizes at the end. More details to come.

Bill shillingford, from Middle Township, travels south of Jersey. He has tagged and released over 21,000 fish for the American Littoral Society.

After a recent ride, he said martins were caught in the waves at Whale Beach.

Mike Cunningham in Sea Isle City Bait and Tackle backed Bill by signaling a “good start” on the martin just below Sea Isle beach.

Sterling Harbor Marina in Wildwood posted a photo of a healthy striped bass captured by Brandon Olewiler, from York, Pa., with a bomber in Delaware Bay.
