It appears that there will be a big change in the weather coming up. A gale watch is posted for Wednesday afternoon through the night. South winds of 20-25 knots plus gusts to 30 it will increase to 25-30 and higher gusts in the afternoon. There’s also a chance of showers.
As a result, Capt. Ron Santee is taking a pass until Friday with his Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands even though striped bass fishing remains very good. Santee had a problem with boat traffic this morning as if it was a Saturday, but took a run that got his fares into bass up to the 34-inch pool winner.
Jerry Lasko says the afternoon surf striper bite continues during afternoon falling tides, though most of the bass are smaller fish in the 20-26-inch class.
