Boaters in NY/NJ Bight have been out of business due to the northeaster for several days, but the small craft advisory is finally coming down – and the weekend looks good.

Nick Honachefsky reports “The surf looks fantastic for the Barrier Island Beach Brawl this weekend! NW 2 to 4 ft 10 to 15 knots thanks to all who have entered. It’s gonna be a great time. Last chance to enter. See you Friday! Www.saltwaterunderground.com.”

The forecast is calming northwest winds at 5-10 knots switching to west in the afternoon as seas drop to 3 feet.

The Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands resumes porgy fishing Friday from Atlantic Highlands, while the Big Mohawk begins fall bottom fishing from Belmar.

Yellowfin tuna fishing was very good just before the storm. The 9/30 canyon trip of the Jamaica from Brielle produced a boat limit of yellowfins up to 80 pounds as the fish were boiling on the surface and hitting a variety of baits and lures. Capt. Dale Steinert noted that butterfish worked better than the live squid jigged under the lights at night which are usually the prime bait. The Jamaica has room on several upcoming canyon trips. Call 732 528-5014 for reservations.

Capt. John McMurry reports his last few tuna trips produced wild yellowfin action in seas that were barely fishable for 100-pounders.
