There was a very rough surf today after the northeast blow. but offshore it was mostly just very large swells. The Golden Eagle from Belmar reported that bluefish still cooperated while some fluke were added. There was also a cobia, but no size provided. That boat is on a tuna trip tomorrow.
The MidAtlantic got underway today with 183 boats and a purse of 4,011,920. However, as predicted yesterday, almost all entrants waited for better weather coming for their three fishing days out of five. Just two boats sailed today. I’ll provide any results tomorrow when I’m sure there will be lots of activity.
The inshore forecast is for southwest winds at 5-10 knots.
