Today's gale-force northwest winds are predicted to die out to 5-to-10-mph north by Wednesday morning, which should make it possible for party boats to sail. John Bushell Jr. posted a video at Betty Nick's Tackle in Seaside Park that showed a blowout tide with that northwest gale at Island Beach State Park.
We did not sail Sunday and yesterday and today were crappy weather (just a little wind today huh ) We had a number of keeper Cod on the boat Saturday. We had about 10 keeper Cod and as many throwbacks.
Folks, looking at the weather forecast for the week - the weather - 40 knot winds - predicated for tomorrow (Tuesday) will keep us at the dock - But WEDNESDAY's weather forecast looks good. So come on down on Wednesday and enjoy some spring MACKEREL fishing.
They didn't sail today due to Easter, but will be running daily trips whenever it's fishable. There were also a few other bites before it was time to run his Sea Hunter back to Keyport in time for Easter dinner.
Capt. Scott Hilliard made his first striper trip of the season today with Prowler V from Atlantic Highlands. Hats off to the crew today, Kenny and Ritchie for making sure we had fresh clams for today's trip and using extra bait working hard to try and catch some fish.
