South winds will be bringing warmer temperatures, but with rain and rough seas as a coastal storm arrives.
Surfcasters probably won’t be missing much. Jerry Lasko said Maren Toleno did catch two stripers this morning at Point Pleasant, but he didn’t hear of anything up at Belmar and found nothing after moving down to IBSP during the morning. Even the loons that had led him to some bass there yesterday were missing.
Bob Matthews, at Fisherman’s Den in Belmar Marina, said the Big Mohawk, Ocean Explorer and Capt. Cal have been doing well with blackfish whenever they can sail. Several 10-12-pounders have been weighed in. Small bass are still a possibility in the surf, but few anglers are working at it.
