Posted on September 16, 2019 Fluke season drawing to an end The fluke season ends on Sept. 21 in both N. J. and N. Y., leaving anglers with just a few days to stock the freezer or seek a personal best. The northeast winds that are forecast to start gusting tonight may be a complication in that quest.
Monday morning looks good with northwest winds at 5 knots, but it shifts to the east in the afternoon and gets serious by midnight with northeast winds gusting to 25 knots. It was barely fishable, and I did get one splash on my popper from a small bass.
Posted on September 14, 2019 NE wind shuts down most fishing but weekend looks better The northeast wind seems to have kept boaters in port today, but the forecast is for a shift to southeast at 10-15 knots after midnight and south at 10-15 Saturday. Seas are predicted to drop from 4-7 feet to 3-5 tomorrow though a small craft advisory is up through Saturday afternoon.

Posted on September 8, 2019 Ocean blues biting after storm Fishing should improve as the ocean settles, but there was good news about the ocean blues as they were splashing on the surface again this morning. Point Pleasant Canal produced a pick of very small blues plus a couple of bigger ones but Joe Melillo of Castaways Tackle in that town fought a decent striper that spit the hook on his lure at the surface.
That will set up a nice Sunday with northwest 10-15 knot winds. Joe Melillo, at Castaways Tackle in Point Pleasant, said blues are being caught in Point Pleasant Canal, and some anglers got into Spanish mackerel in the inlet this morning, He noted that he s now carrying sand fleas for bait.
The forecast for tomorrow is east winds at 15-20 knots, increasing to 20-25 in the afternoon. Posted on September 5, 2019 Rugged weather coming up It s been a generally pleasant summer for anglers, but we may be paying our dues the next two days.
