It certainly feels like fishing time this afternoon as it’s in the fifties at Toms River — and going up in the evening rather than down. Unfortunately, there’s also south winds and rain is on the way. Small craft warnings are up, and there will be a gale watch tomorrow as the 25-30 knot south wind gusts to 40 later on along with rain. Clearing west winds on Friday will blow at 15-20 knots with gusts to 25. However, Saturday continues to look good with west winds at 5-10 knots.
