Captain's Focus

Posted on January 22, 2020 N.Y. Boat Show opens tomorrow The New York Boat Show drops anchor in the Convention Center tomorrow and continues through the weekend. Weekday show hours are from 4 to 8:30 p.m.  Admission is $16, but you can get a discount by buying in advance. Military and First Responders receive a $3 discount on Wednesday by showing ID at the box office. Light winds bode well for anglers the next two days. It’s northwest at just 5-10 knots Wednesday and north at 5 knots Thursday. The Big Mohawk from Belmar will sail open tomorrow for blackfish at 7 a.m., and reservations for Thursday can be made by calling 732 944-9606.  The weekend looks like a blowout, and Friday may also be out due to an expected “giant” swell which is a killer for tog fishing. It wasn’t any bargain in Florida this morning as temperatures dropped to the 30s and northwest winds produced a chill advisory. I had to switch to “big boy” pants,  and my hands were cold for only the second time ever in Florida as I briefly fished a pond in Ft. Myers to catch a small bass on Gulp in order to keep alive my streak of not getting shut out any morning since coming down in November.
