Weather And Water Temperature Update for Wednesday the 19th

 Finally calming down out there,yesterday was awesome!  Weekend is looking decent buta tad snotty out front.  The surf is clean and the waves are calm.  We might see some rain Saturday into Sunday but that will probably change by the time tomorrow rolls around. The early morning incoming tide(s) should be great for surf , pier,and shore fishing all weekend and then the evening bite.

Water temperatures have leveled back out, Massey’s Ditch is running 75 to 78 degrees this past week.  The inshore ocean and surf is in the mid seventies as well as the Delaware Bay.  Looking great for fishing the rest of the week.  Striped bass are schooling up in the back bays and creeks.  Lot of fun on light gear.  Blues are at the point again just like before the storms.
