New Jersey & Delaware Bay Video Fishing Forecast July 18, 2024

New Jersey – A Change In Wind Direction? This week's video fishing forecast for the New Jersey, Delaware Bay region comes from Orlando, FL where The Fisherman team has assembled for the annual ICAST show. While running around the convention center floor looking at new gear from the sportfishing world, back home it appears that winds may finally be changing directions - could it actually be true? We spend five or so minutes talking fluke, then jump into croaker and blitzing drum, a surprise inshore mako, and a look at the local head boat catches. Minn Kota trolling motor tips in Open Boat, a 9-pound fluke in the Ocean City surf along with spot and sheepshead, and our weekly update from the Pocono Outdoors Guy. Wrap up this week's video fishing forecast for the weekend ahead with a look at the offshore marine forecast and headlines from Massachusetts about beach closures due to broken turbine pieces washing ashore from the Vineyard Wind industrial offshore wind site.
