There’s a full menu of fishing choices for Father’s Day, but small craft warnings are up through the afternoon, and the Golden Eagle from Belmar had to cancel this afternoon’s trip due to high winds. Northwest winds from 15-20 knots with gusts to 25 continue tomorrow, but that’s fine for surfcasting and can be worked with in protected bays and rivers.

Striper anglers can find some protection in Raritan Bay or very close to the Jersey Shore and hope for a personal best such as Joe Balzamo’s 55-pounder before release by the famed western Long Island angler.

The N.J. sea bass season ends Sunday, and most boats fishing for them will switch to fluke on Monday.

Capt. Ron Santee made the switch today with his Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands, but isn’t doing any celebrating after getting ready a couple of days ago as he noted “Went for fuel today, $5.99 a Gallon, $410 a day to fish where we have been going. I will still do what I have to do and go where we have to go no matter what……Screw you JOE, I’m not going away!!!
