It’s Windy Again Must Be The Weekend
Gale warnings and small craft advisory … Well the wind picked back up and is going to blow all weekend. We had flat calm for about two days and some decent fishing in the surf for blues and short striped bass. The surf is wide today, but fishable. The water is also gorgeous crystal clear right now, which is odd for the amount of wind.
Watch it at high tide in case the water pushes farther up to the dunes. I wouldn’t worry about beaches closing, but be careful just the same. Swales will fill in and make driving at high tide something to keep an eye on.
