Even if fishing is at a low level due to winter weather, Saturday will be a good time to get ready for the spring by loading up on tackle at the Hi-Mar Striper Club Fishing Flea Market which runs from 8-2 in the Port Monmouth VFW at 1 Veterans Lane. This is always a very big show, and also includes many seminars for the $5 admission. Kids under 12 are admitted at no charge.
With all that traffic coming to Rt. 36, the Tackle Box in Hazlet is having its own special sale with discounts on everything in stock.
The forecast for Thursday is southwest winds at 10-15 knots plus occasional gusts to 25.
