Navesink river is still loaded with bunker

So they will leave or die. I have seen the peanuts die off in large numbers in the years past sometimes. It was weird because you see birds working the river and think something is going on and they are just getting the dead floaters.

They come back there so early that i always wondered if they never left at all.  

I guess some years they might make it through but the years when the whole place is iced over I’m going with dead.

How deep are the holes?

 

Monster stripers over winter in deep 100+ft holes in the hudson by west point.

 

 

Not even close. 20 feet tops and we are talking peanut bunker. Juvie stripers I’m not sure but they are also back there pretty early.

I’d have to bring in an expert I don’t go out at night. Scary place is that Navesink at night. 

Stay out of places like that after sundown, that sweater crowd from Rumson is a rough bunch. I like the Navesink River Road side, plenty of parking and everyone makes you feel welcomed. 

 

Bunker often are in local ocean waters in December into early January and you'll know when the sea herring show most of the bunker are gone. Many a loner big bass has been had in December .Agreed the bunker won't live through winter unless its really mild. Be back right around St. Paddys Day or shortly thereafter. At least for the last thousand years, these days who knows?

The last time I parked over there some dude pulled a broken champagne flute on me and demanded my amex platinum card.

No way I am going back there.
