I took a quick ride down to check on the water today thinking that tonight might be a good night. While out on the pier I looked north and saw a heavy smoke condition drifting out over the water. I thought it might be the old and now vacant Takansee Beach Club on fire. I took a ride up there and found that Long Branch had a good fire going on Brighton Avenue, also known as West End. The fire started in the old DJ's bike shop and spread east towards Ocean Avenue. The wind was blowing W at 15-20 and that didn't help in stopping the spread.
Back to fishing I'm thinking late tonight and tomorrow night might be good.
