The forecast of high winds noted in last night's blog never occurred, as there was only a breeze as I caught short blackfish up to 14 inches this morning in Point Pleasant Canal. The new forecast calls for only 24-29 mph north winds tonight (though it's very light as this was being written), and 22-25 mph on Labor Day with gusts to 36 plus a 30 percent chance of showers after 11 a. m. By Tuesday it should be down to 16 to 21 mph from the north.
Shore fishing conditions looked good this morning in Shark River, but I only had one hit on a popper -- and it shook the hooks. Capt. Tommy Joseph reports porgy fishing is still very good on his Rightaway III from Shark River.
