The fluke season in N.J. is going out tomorrow on a sour note for most as the northeast wind will probably prevent fishing in the ocean where most of the larger fluke are getting ready to head for offshore spawning and wintering grounds.
Tomorrow’s forecast is for north winds at 15-20 knots before shifting to northeast at 10-15 in the afternoon — but increasing to 15-20 with gusts to 25 on Sunday. Small craft warnings are up until at least late Saturday night.
The surf was barely fishable early this morning, but Vinny D’Anton managed one school striper on his Chug Bug. It was back to protected river fishing this afternoon for 3-4-pound blues on poppers, though Vinny found a 25-inch bass among them.
