Though the northwest wind continues, and there were no reports today, it should drop off enough to permit party and charter boats to make their trips tomorrow.
The forecast is for northwest at 10-15 knots with gusts to 20. There’s some protection from that wind, and even the Shore can get in the action. The Golden Eagle from Belmar will be sailing at 6:30 a.m. to be on the grounds for the early bite of stripers. However, the Queen Mary from Point Pleasant won’t be there as they are finished for the season. The Sea Hunter from Atlantic Highlands doesn’t have far to go for what’s been crazy striper jigging — and they are sailing as scheduled.
The northwest wind is ideal for NJ surfcasting. Dress warm and enjoy the cast- extending wind at your back!
