Beach Haven Captains Eye Hurricane Sandy
<p>The captains of the Beach Haven Charter Fishing Association are anxiously keeping their eyes on approaching Hurricane Sandy. Although projections currently call for her to pass by well offshore, strong winds and large waves are expected in the area from the middle of this coming weekend until early next week.
Some of the captains have plans to fish in the Seashell Club's annual Striped Bass Tournament. With current weather predictions calling for decent conditions on Friday and Saturday, some serious fishing is expected to take place.
Up to this point the striped bass catches in the Beach Haven area have been few and far between. Some captains are expressing the hope that the upcoming storm will produce the impetus for the arrival of the bass in force.
Captain Fran Verdi on the "Francesca Marie" had a crew of hard working anglers fishing in the Red Men's striped bass tournament last weekend. Despite putting long hours and some hard work into his fishing, Captain Fran was unable to coax any bass into his boat. There were a total of 31 boats entered in the tournament, and only two striped bass were weighed in.
