$1 Million Offshore Purse & $16K For Fluke in NJ
NFL Hall of Fame coach Jimmy Johnson is bringing $1 million to Atlantic City this coming week in what promises to be one of the larger tournament purses of the season. This week’s fishing forecast for the New Jersey, Delaware Bay region comes direct from Farley State Marina in Atlantic City where boats are already assembling for Johnson’s Quest for the Ring AC event. While tropical storm Elsa promises to move around some wind and water to end the week, Thursday morning’s offshore forecast from the Hudson to Baltimore shows light winds and 3’ to 4’ seas by Sunday. The Saturday and Sunday inshore outlook at the Jersey Shore looks even better for those looking to take a shot at the $16,000 purse in the NJ Fishing Club’s “Beat the Fleet” fluke tournament on Saturday with weigh stations from Keyport to Cape May.
