As noted in last night’s blog, the ocean was calm today. Yet, the Ocean Explorer from Belmar reported a poor blackfish bite despite perfect conditions. Almost all of the tog caught were shorts as the high hook only had two keepers. That boat is cancelling for Sunday due to northeast winds, and looking at Tuesday as the next possibility.
Actually, the marine forecast improved since yesterday with only 5-10 knot NE winds predicted early Sunday before increasing to 10-15 with gusts to 20 in the afternoon. It’s pretty much the opposite for Monday with NE 15-20 early diminishing to 10-15 in the afternoon. There may be some light snow Sunday, especially in Ocean County.
The Garden State Outdoor Sports Show concludes Sunday at the N.J. Convention Center in Edison. Visit GSOSS.com for details.
