Kaspersetz and Mark Roy, on whose 31-foot Ocean Master we were fishing, also hooked fish on almost every drift that day. Fortunately,the fog kept the fleet to a manageable number, which no doubt contributed to the steady action. The majority of bass ran from 25 to 32 pounds, although Kaspersetz and I both released 40-pounders. Best of all, the predators under those bunker were mostly all bass, as we only caught one bluefish on our last drift. More big blues arrived in the following days, but stripers continued to dominate, which hasn't been the case in recent years.
