1000's of NJ Saltwater Fishing Reports, Dozens of Sources, Maps, Wrecks, Historical Search

Posted on September 16, 2020 Bruce Vitale will be missed It was a shock to me when retired N.J. Capt. Sal Cursi, famed Raritan Bay striper skipper of Kathy Sea called from his home in Florida to tell me that our mutual friend Bruce Vitale had passed away last weekend at just 73. Bruce was a Navy veteran and retired from the Plainfield Fire Dept. before ending up in Toms River with his wife Anne. No one loved fishing more than Bruce, who picked up the nickname Cuz during time spent at a second home in North Carolina. I hope to have an obituary in tomorrow’s blog.  Send Flowers Share The northeast wind made for a rough ocean today, but the outlook for tomorrow is better with a southwest wind at 10-15 knots before shifting to south at the same speed plus gusts to 20 in the afternoon. However, the surf will probably remain rough due to the big swell. It has remained clear so far, and I managed to release a 25 1/2-inch striper on a Tsunami Shad at Spring Lake this evening.
