There aren’t many fishing reports being posted during the current northeaster, but better days may be coming with a shift to the west..
The marine forecast for Tuesday is north winds at 10-15 knots with gusts to 20. Seas are running up to 9 feet, but there’s a shift to the west at night. By Wednesday morning it should be west at 10-15 with gusts to 20 knots. Though small craft warnings are extended to Thursday afternoon, the seas drop to 4-6 feet by that afternoon.
If you are tired of northeast winds, don’t expect any sympathy from ex-NJ skipper Sal Cursi who reports it’s been howling from that direction for days along Florida’s east coast — along with rain.
The Queen Mary from Pt. Pleasant won’t be sailing Tuesday due to high seas. but they expect to get back to jigging blues on Wednesday.
Point Pleasant Canal was nice and calm this morning, but not very fishy. I only had one hit on a Z Man paddletail, and released a 22-ihch bluefish. Nothing else was caught while I was there.
