A gale warning for strong west winds is going up at 6 p.m. and extends into Tuesday afternoon. The surf has been calm, and the predicted wind should blow more water off the beach making it too shallow to fish at low tide in some areas.
The forecast is for gusts to 40 knots tomorrow before going north at 10-15 with gusts to 20.
Jerry Lasko fished Belmar this morning where Maren Toleno managed one striper. There were no swirling fish nor signs of bait, but both of them also missed a few bumps.
Vinny D’Anton had a report from a bit further south where jack crevalle were hitting his Chug Bug at Sarasota on the Gulf coast of Florida.
