Every spring, anglers from Virginia to Maine await the return of migratory striped bass. And in every state, there is always that one place where it seems the action kicks off. For New Jersey anglers, that spot is Raritan Bay. Tucked behind New York's Staten Island, and with the Manhattan skyline looming in the distance, this section of the Jersey Coast is a bit more gritty than the vacationlands further south, but the stripers could care less. They have no choice but to pass through Raritan Bay to get up the Raritan and Hudson Rivers to spawn, and while they stage, they feed hard. Raritan Bay can go from 0 to 60 overnight in spring, and host Joe Cermele and co-host Captain Eric Kerber found themselves right in the middle of striper Mecca when that throttled was pinned to the max. What's the secret to getting in on the bite? Drop everything and go.
