The Ocean Explorer from Belmar got out Friday on such a flat calm day that it was hard to stay put on the anchor. Yet, the results were poor with only one keeper cod plus a few small blackfish and pollock -- and eels. There was plenty of surface life featuring whales, seals and birds on herring. There was no report on today's fishing. The Big Mohawk also had no report.
A gusty SW wind tonight is supposed to diminish during Sunday to a light west, but there's also rain in the forecast during the morning.
