Currently we’re just offshore at Barnegat Light, southbound from Shark River to Absecon Inlet. Conditions are windy as predicted, and out of the south as predicted, but sunny skies lured us out. Aside from banging into 4-5 foot head seas, it’s not a bad day. We’ve had a day to accommodate to the sloppy conditions, so we’re making headway. We’ve seen quite a few dolphins, some came by to play under the bow for a while, giving Jared a nice show. We also had some lines out, and finally got a hit. The reel started singing and after a bit of playing, Jared reeled in a nice bluefish. We put the pork chops back in the freezer.

Arrival at Absecon is projected for 1830 hours, our progress is less than speedy today as a result of the sloppy conditions. Predictions are for winds and seas to abate later in the afternoon, so we’ll keep slogging along! So much for the clean boat!
