Party boat anglers are awaiting the April opening of the blackfish season, but may have a shot at spring cod in the meantime.

The Ocean Explorer from Belmar had a nice day offshore o Tuesday, and reported a “handful” of both keeper and short cod plus ling. They will get out again whenever the weather is favorable — and will be joined on Saturday by the Golden Eagle. Tere were also lots of dogfish and some congers.

Small craft warnings are up through Saturday afternoon though west winds at 10-15 knots plus gusts to 20 tomorrow doesn’t sound too bad.

Sorry for no blog last night as a short loss of power resulted in losing the internet.
