While surfcasters should be able to deal with waves from large swells that are coming at them, the greatest damage comes from the backwash behind them that can sweep an angler’s legs out from under him in without warning.

Getting knocked down in the surf is no laughing matter, as regaining your feet in waders with added water weight is a real challenge as the waves keep coming. Vinny D’Anton heard of that happening this morning in the Monmouth County surf which was rough and unproductive.

A small craft warning is up through Saturday night. The forecast is for northeast winds at15-20 knots before diminishing to 10-15 in the afternoon.
