It literally “blew a gale” yesterday, and party boats that did fish in NY/NJ Bight had a hard time finding stripers that would hit lures even though many were marked. The only report received today was a positive, with Capt. Ron Santee of the Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands getting into good numbers of keepers and slots plus even a few “overs”. Shads were the best producer.

The Fishermen will not be sailing on Thanksgiving, but the Sea Tiger II from that port will run a half-day striper trip.

Capt. Vinny Vetere is available tomorrow with his Katfish from Great Kills before shutting down until December in order to make a trip to the Caribbean. Call him at 917 693-8908.

A gale warning was posted at 4 p.m. for 35-knot southwest winds through late tonight. The morning forecast is for northwest at 10-15 knots plus gusts to 20 before dropping to west at 5-10 in the afternoon.
