Jersey Shore Boat Sale & Expo – Sept. 24-28
Those who’ve been looking for a new or used boat know how difficult that has been this season with product shortages brought on by the pandemic. If you’re shopping around for a center console, skiff, pilot house, pontoon are other similar class boat, get to FirstEnergy Park in Lakewood for the 11 a.m. opening bell of the Jersey Shore Boat Sale & Expo on Friday, Sept 24. Sure, there could be a little rain in the forecast, but in our full video report this week The Fisherman’s Jim Hutchinson counted around 150 new boats on the lot and a nice little selection of a half-dozen previously owned fishing machines just waiting for a new slipholder. We kick off this week’s video forecast in honor of the late Fred Golofaro, senior editor emeritus here at The Fisherman Magazine, with a rundown on local action to be found in the region in the days ahead, the first official weekend of fall 2021.
