Posted on November 29, 2019 Happy Thanksgiving â€” less windÂ tomorrow I hope everyone is enjoying a fine Thanksgiving! There were no boat reports with the gale warning posted, but that goes down tonight. By morning itâ€™s down to north 15-20 knots with gusts to 25, Most boats will probably be fishing, and the Jamaica from Brielle is promoting her Black Friday Striped Bass Marathon at 6:30 a.m. Surfcasters were able to cast like champs today with the strong wind behind them. Jerry Lasko reports that Island Beach State Park was crowded, but there was a steady pick of small stipers despite waters that were dirty due to all the west wind. Maren Toleno ended up with 20 releases. Jay Russell used the Tsunami Sand Eel to release 16 schoolies last night at Sea Girt.
