June 9 Striper Migration Map

The Full Moon in June Just about anywhere from Southern New Jersey to the North Shore of Massachusetts has the potential to produce a 30-pound-plus striped bass right now. More waves of large, migrating stripers, moving north with the full moon tides have filled in some of the gaps as the fish settle in to feed on bunker, mackerel, sand eels, or herring. Southern New Jersey A few bass to 40 pounds have been showing up on the South Jersey beaches according to our South Jersey Fishing Forecast, but despite it being “prime time” bass fishing was sporadic this week. The neap tides could have something to do with that, but with the Full Moon on Friday, June 9th, there’s bound to be another wave of bass moving through South Jersey water. Several 50-plus-pounders were reported in our Northern New Jersey Fishing Forecast, both on the troll and on live bunker. Long Island Our Long Island Fishing Forecast reported red hot striper fishing on both sides of the island, with big bass falling to live bunker off the North Shore, and monster bass being caught on the troll off the South Shore. Big stripers have even made their way east, with 40-plus-pound bass being reported from the surf in Montauk. Rhode Island The shallow, warmer waters of Narragansett Bay are still holding big stripers chasing around schools of bunker. Big bass are being caught on mackerel along the South Shore, and 25-pound-plus fish have turned up as far north as the Merrimack River. New Hampshire and Maine Keeper-sized fish are increasing in number in New Hampshire and Maine, and with 25-pounders in the Merrimack, the upcoming warm weather and full moon tides will sure move some bigger fish north in the coming days.
