Our break from midwinter weather will be coming to an end Monday night, but there’s one day left to enjoy a 5-10 knot northeast wind with seas of less than one foot despite some light snow. After that we’ll be in for much stronger NE winds.
The Ocean Explorer from Belmar had a nice day at sea on Sunday, with a pick of keeper blackfish and a cod. They’ll be out again in the morning in search of the big tog that evaded them today.
There was better news from much further south as Ric Gross of Point Pleasant reported he fished last week with Capt. Chase on Reel Rival from Boynton Beach, Florida as they had lots of action in 75-degree waters with triggerfish up to 4 pounds, , mutton snappers to 2 pounds and , porgies to 12 inches. Sounds good to me.
