SHOOTOUT AT HAND: This Saturday is the High Point Volunteer Fire Company’s Striper Shootout, Tournament and Fish Fry. Registration deadline for this all-boat event is this Friday at 8 p.m.
And, in deed, it could be a shootout extraordinaire, if the current hookup of major bass continues – as it surely should. The boundaries of the contest extend from the Seaside Heights Ferris Wheel down to the Ship Bottom water tower – the prime location of the recent nearshore bunker-based bite.
The entry fee is $150 a boat for two anglers, $30 for each additional angler with a max of five anglers.
