When I grow up, I want to be just like Percy Wentworth, who’s 88 years young, makes the finest cast nets which he can still throw like a young buck — and mates daily on Capt. Vinny Vetere’s Katfish out of Great Kills.
However, even Percy needs some rest, and is about to retire from netmaking. He’s seeking a buyer for that very successful business — and will train the new owner at his home. Call Percy at 718 984-7383.
The NJ tautog season opened today in big seas from the south blow. A small craft advisory is up this evening before switching to a gale warning at 6 p.m. Tomorrow starts with northwest winds at 15-20 knots plus gusts to 30 — but at least that direction should knock down the swell. By afternoon it drops to west 10-15 plus gusts to 20.
Sunday looks better with 5-10 knot south winds before shifting to the west in the afternoon, Sowers are likely.
