According to Seven Mile Times, Fred Mellon of Sea Isle City and Bob Tartaglione of Avalon landed a 48-inch, 43lb striper while trolling the Sea Isle Lump, just a couple miles off the beach. Meanwhile, the Miss Avalon has reported nice catches of sea bass. Don’t let the fall chill stop you–grab your fishing tackle and head to your favorite spot!
