I noted in last night's blog that the hard southwest wind forecast for today might prevent a repeat of yesterday's scattered striper blitzes along the Shore. After the weigh-in list at Grumpy's Tackle in Seaside Park was loaded with big bass yesterday, there were only a few bass today-- and nothing big.
The weather for tomorrow is for gale force winds (gusts to 45) so we will not be fishing. Weather permitting we will be fishing for blackfish everyday leaving at 7 30 and returning between 2 30 and 3pm.
We slugged away most of the day on smaller fish and a couple Big blues, all on jigs as the shads couldn't make it to the bottom. Couple fish the Pool fish were in the teens with the Big Babies taking a break today.
FRIDAY 11 17 UPDATE Steady pick most of the day, lot of action on the shorts with many anglers catching countless throwbacks along with some nice keepers and slot fish Check out the latest pictures of Jason, Courtney, Al, Marty, Bob, Sean Paul and Marissa. who caught 9 shorts before getting a keeper using shads.
