Sorry for the late report, but I've pretty busy with deer hunting and work the past 1.5 weeks.
Had 2 good days eeling off of Sandy Hook and Raritan Bay the 2 days after Thanksgiving. There was some choppy, cold, windy weather and some nice weather that seemed to change every couple hours.
Water temps at the time varied between 43 - 46 F. Had some bird action early Saturday morning, but they where mainly small blues with a mix of some small stripers. Most of our action was with eels during the tide.
Took 4 keepers home between 32" - 36" ranging from 16# to 21# see pictures
