Captain's Focus

Days of strong east winds plus the current heavy rain have just about put an end to mid-week fishing, and the lingering effects may be another problem. It's going to take some time for the ocean to settle, and all waters are likely to be off-color if not downright dirty as a result of all that rain. Some boaters should be out by Friday to provide a clue about weekend prospects. The blackfish season concludes tonight, but there was some late good news from Grumpy's Tackle in Seaside Park about two weakfish of 21 and 24 inches that were weighed in Monday night.  They were hooked on Fin-ess -- presumably in Barnegat Bay. Capt. Jim McFarland has been blown out of his cod trips with Big Mac from Green Harbor, Ma., but made an exploratory run to Plymouth Harbor on Monday for winter flounder. He found the water to still be too cold, and chumming with clam bellies only produced nine fat flatties. There's an 8-fish per man limit up there, which won't be a problem to fill as the water warms a bit.
