What passed for a tropical storm resulted in a very rough ocean, but didn't interfere with Capt. Dave De Gennaro's weakfishing in Barnegat Bay at all as he had good results from Thursday through Saturday on his Hi Flier from Barnegat. I've been making a brief attempt at the slack with light tackle and sandworms, but the volume of juvenile sea bass is hard to get past with soft baits.
All kids 14 and under will fish for FREE when accompanied by a full paying adult every Monday - Thursday from now through September on the Miss Belmar Princess. Miss Belmar t-shirts are in both long and short sleeves in black, indigo blue, white, charcoal grey, khaki, silver and light grey for adults.
Many people missed out on a beautiful Labor Day with sun and moderate winds due to the forecast yesterday evening that included gusts to 40 mph last night followed by gusts to 36 mph today. Hopefully this storm won't turn things off in the canyons and it may actually be good for the tuna fishing.
After WAY too many Nights spent on the boat up the River back in the day, I figured it's better to error on the side of caution, as it always is. I'm amazed at how many customers called to see if we were fishing, even with the end of the world weather reports.
