Winds were out of the South Southwest with tides running at near normal levels and water clarity was crystal clear to moderately cloudy. The bluefish blitzes have all but ended but the rip that sets up by the buried jetty near Nagoog Point has been holding 9" sand eels and giant bass for the last three days.
