The west wind is flattening the seas and the forecast is favorable tomorrow and Friday. Thus, what remains of the fleets will be heading back to sea this week.
The Big Jamaica from Brielle has room on offshore jumbo sea bass trips leaving at 11 p.m. tonight and tomorrow night. Call 732 528-5014 for reservations. That fishing has been very good, and should hold up for some time.
The Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands will try to get out for stripers tomorrow if enough anglers call by tonight to make the trip possible. Call Capt. Rob Semkewyc at 732 291-4468.
The Golden Eagle will sail for stripers from Belmar at 7:30 a.m., and the Big Mohawk has an open boat trip for tog from that port at 7 a.m.
A small boat advisory is up through this evening for northwest gusts to 30 knots, but that drops to west at 10-15 with gusts to 20 overnight.
Surfcasters will be back in action if the waters have cleared enough.
Weakfish were practically unheard from this year, but they are being caught far offshore on the Jamaica.
