After a brutal dawn today, it looks like it may be fishable early Friday and certainly during the day as small craft warnings are lowered. The forecast is for NE 5-10 knots with gusts to 20. For Saturday it’s south 10-15 before going to SE 25 knots in the afternoon.
There were no reports from today, but it seems that every Thanksgiving there’s a striper blitz on the beach somewhere when almost everyone is involved in family dinners.
The Jamaica from Brielle will be sailing at 11 p.m. Friday for jumbo sea bass on far offshore wrecks. There’s room on that trip, and reservations can be made by calling 732 528-5014. Wednesday’s trip was good, with some limits of sea bass and some porgies, cod, pollock, hake and ling. The pool went to Joe Lorenzo of Bergenfield with a 12-pound cod — and Alberto Alponte from Brooklyn had a giant 7.5-pound sea bass.
