The Big Mohawk sailed from Belmar this morning for blackfish, but ended up with a catch of stripers in the 10-to-15-pound class — presumably in the ocean. This sounds like the April run we had in the ocean during April about a decade ago. The Golden Eagle from Belmar got the news and has set up Saturday and Sunday trips at 7:30. The Big Mohawk also added a few blackfish.
The wind is going northeast at 10-15 knots after midnight, but is only forecast to be east at 10-15 with gusts to 20 knots in the morning. The Saturday forecast is west at 5-10 knots — but with rain in the morning.
