A gale watch is up for Sunday afternoon into Monday. Surfcasters may get an early shot as the Sunday morning forecast is east at 10-15 knots with gusts to 20. By afternoon it’s up to 25-30 with higher gusts.
Vinny D’Anton said surfcasting at Belmar was decent without the north wind that was hard to fish in the day before. He picked away to end up with six bass, including one pushing 28 inches.
Jerry Lasko said Maren Toleno only caught seven bass while working the IBSP surf most of yesterday. When she has a hard time catching, others are lucky to catch any at all!
Bob Correll didn’t see a fish caught at Bay Head this morning, and there was no bird action either.
The Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands got into lots of bait which made the bass a little fussy. Yet, they still caught plenty and later had a shot at larger slots and some keepers up to 15 pounds. The Sunday trip is cancelled due to the forecast, and the next fishable day may be Wednesday.
The Golden Eagle from Belmar got into picky striper fishing with mostly shorts, but some bass were boated. They won’t be sailing Sunday due to the forecast.
