Fishing weather has been hard to come by lately, but there appears to be a window of opportunity early on Saturday. The southwest wind is supposed to drop down after midnight before switching to light northeast at dawn. There my be some rain, but, northwest winds aren't supposed to howl until later in the afternoon. Wind gusts to 40 and 50 mph are forecast from Saturday night into Sunday. Friday's winds appear to have kept party boats in port, but Capt. Fred Gamboa trolled stripers in Raritan Bay -- just as he's been doing for three days with Andrea's Toy from Keyport. He said those stripers have bunkers in their stomachs, but won't hit those baits -- or even the clams that are normally effective in the bay at this time of year. Yet, they are very aggressive on stretch plugs. The Jamaica from Brielle joins the Golden Eagle from Belmar in pursuit of mackerel Saturday at 7 a.m.
