If you want to go fishing, you’d better do it by Thursday morning. Light winds continue in the morning from the southwest at 5-10 knots before switching to southeast in the afternoon and gusting to 30 knots. Friday looks like a complete washout.
There were no boat reports today, though conditions were good for blackfishing.
The Jamaica from Brielle sails for the jumbo sea bass wrecks at 11 p.m. Call 732 528-5014 for reservations.
The surf was flat today, but Jerry Lasko said there wasn’t much of a bite in the morning. He only had one hit, but Maren Toleno managed to release one bass on her hand-tied teaser. They fished in the Point Pleasant area and were back near there at dusk for the first good signs this week as sea herring were dimpling. Maren caught three bass, two on her teaser and one on the Tsunami 6-inch Halographic Sand Eel. Jerry lost one.
Vinny D’Anton didn’t have any positive news about the Belmar area from his friends despite the fine conditions.
Steve Mirande sent an e-mail about casting in that strong NW wind yesterday morning at Point Pleasant Beach along with his neighbor Don Westerdale. They never got a tap there or at Seaside Park,
