Keyport waterfront closed
After all the traffic noted in yesterdayâ€™s blog, the police closed the Keyport, N.J. waterfront which attracted crowds during a nice day. Presumably, that includes the ramp â€” though I couldnâ€™t confirm that.
Capt. Arthur Stokes provided the first blackfish report in some time as he fished Sunday with Christian Griffith of Hamilton on the latterâ€™s boat out of Belmar. They anchored in 70 feet and had decent action on crabs as three keepers were boated and many shorts returned.
Thereâ€™s another nice day coming up as the morning marine forecast is for 5-10 knot southwest winds and 2-3-foot seas.
Be safe â€” and remember that minimum 6-foot distancing!
