I went down to Allenhurst this morning so I could look right and left, to Deal and Asbury Park. Nothing going on. Waves still on the big sides in quick sets. More surfers out than fisherman. It was low tide both times I went down to check. Word is things will cool down starting tomorrow and that come Monday November 1 we'll be in full swing. I got my spew reel, backing and line today...hopefully the rod comes tomorrow, just in time for the bite.
