After many days of west or northwest winds. there’s a change coming after midnight with a switch to north at 5 knots but with higher gusts and a liklihood of showers.. This may actually imptove surfcasting for stripers which was still poor this morning when Vinny D’Anton tried casting at Spring Lake. Yet, he ended up with a good morning after getting a report of breaking fish well off Monmouth Beach. When he arrived there were bay anchovies littering the beach, indicating the blues had driven them up. After some time, the 8-12-pound choppers moved in again and attacked big poppers cast to them. Where will they be tomorrow?
