With a switch to west winds tonight, seas should drop for boaters fishing close to the NJ Shore. Though the swell all week may have the tog off the feed, fishing for them under the protection of the hills should be comfortable.

Striped bass were still plentiful a few days ago off Ocean County where sand eels were providing the attraction. Feeding birds should tell the story there. The surf may take another day to clear up, though casting should be a pleasure with that wind behind you. The Tsunami Sand Eel should be a best bet.

The N.Y. striped bass season closed on Dec. 15. Raritan Bay anglers should be careful not to go over the line.

The forecast is for west winds at 20-25 knots plus gusts to 30. Seas that had been 9-13 feet will drop rapidly with those winds. All remaining party boats should be fishing tomorrow.

The Mimi VI from Point Pleasant has openings on tomorrow’s 6:30 tog trip, as well as one on Christmas Eve. Call 732 370-8019 for reservations.
