It’s not the greatest marine forecast, but President’s Day may be fishable — and southwest winds have pushed temperatures back up.
Today’s southwest wind drops to 10-15 knots with gusts to 20 by morning — and down to 5-10 by afternoon.
The Ocean Explorer from Belmar reported lots of life on the bottom during Saturday’s blackfish trip which produced a couple of legal tog for two fares and one for some others. A few big tog were broken off. The seasonal pool is over $5,000
Capt. Kenny Namowitz reports a “go” tomorrow on his open trip with Mimi VI from Point Pleasant. He’s fishing for blackfish at 7 a.m. on a limited trip for $8o. Make a reservation by calling 732 370-8019. He’s also sailing open on similar trips Saturday and Sunday.
Sorry for noting the SWABC flea market on the wrong day. I had it listed in my book for Sunday.
