Posted on April 21, 2021 Gale warning goingÂ up A gale warning is going up for mariners in NY/NJ Bight at 6:30 p.m. â€” but it should lead to a calm Saturday. West winds at 20-25 knots with gusts to 35 are predicted for the morning. Andreas Toy from Keyport reported good action with large stripers on live bunkers morning after that method wasnâ€™t good yesterday morning. The Ocean Explorer from Belmar reported Tuesdayâ€™s bottom fishing on a nice ocean wasnâ€™t very good though the high hook managed a couple of keeper blackfish along with a dozen shorts. There were also some cod and ling. Capt. Joe Massa caught this 11-pound tog Sunday off Long Branch on his My Three Sons from Morgan Marina.
