Everything  changed after yesterday’s gale. A huge fleet found a choppy ocean with no apparent life inshore off the Jersey Shore, but the Golden Eagle, Miss Belmar Princess and Queen Mary went offshore to load up on jumbo blues with jigs.

It was a different story to the north where the Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands found better striper fishing than before the gale. Capt. Rob Semkewyc was surprised to find they didn’t want live baits, but hit jigs and shad. The largest was over 40 pounds. Despite the forecast of rain and east winds for Monday, he’s planning on sailing for those bass.

The surfcasting report from Vinny D’Anton wasn’t as good since all the pros he talked to had no action at all. Grumpy’s Tackle in Seaside Park reported the clear water line was moving closer to the surf.
