Cold, windy weather kept boaters in port today, but some are set to sail tomorrow.
Small craft warnings are still up for west winds gusting to 30 knots, but they are sorecasted to drop somewhat to 20-25 with gusts to 30 by morning. That may make the Between the Channels area that was loaded with stripers fishable, and the Sea Hunter from At;antic Highlands will be giving it a try the next two days. The Golden Eagle from Belmar will be sailing early at 6:30 a.m. for stripers. The Jamaica from Brielle has room on its trips to offshore wrecks for jumbo sea bass and porgies that sail at 10 p.m. Thursday and Friday. Call 732 528-5014 for reservations.
Vinniy D’Anton reports that the cold and continuing large swells kept most surfcasters home, but conditions should be better tomorrow after all the west wind we’ve had to reduce the seas.
