The Golden Eagle from Belmar concludes its striper fishing for the year with tomorrow’s 6:30 a.m. sailing from Belmar. That boat still has some offshore sea bass trips by reservation on its schedule.
The Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands will try to sail through Sunday, though Tuesday’s striper fishing after the south gale was poor. Capt. Ron Santee said he ran north, then south and to the channels but only found some areas with life and fewer with fish marks. A couple of anglers caught two keepers, but it was a tough pick. Of course, all that can change overnight, and there’s a good chance that stripers may be with us for some time yet.
Small craft warnings are up tonight into the morning, when it will be northwest at 15 -20 knots plus gusts to 25 before diminishing in the afternoon to 10-15 knots.
