Default 2019 Water Temps and Daylight

ok, so we're not there yet, but I'm thinking ahead

First, as of tomorrow, the length of day reverses and we begin to have more daylight (note that sunset started getting later on the 13th) (not sure how this table will turn out so if it's screwed up, just jump to https://www.timeanddate.com/sun/usa/new-york)

Next we look at water temps which, unfortunately, are going to go down well into February, when we should start to see a turnaround.

(12/20/2018 20:54 UTC)








Atlantic
City NJ

I see that the US government shutdown hasn't affected the NDBC.

US government shutdown won't affect anything. Just make people aware how little they need them.

Remember only ocean front is “open” for stripers and most bottom fish go deep in cold water but probably herring around but who knows unless you try

One thing to note this time of year. The water coming out of the back bay is typically colder than the ocean temp. So, you likely want to fish incoming, not outgoing.


At the AC Inlet right now:
Water Temp

39.4?F

Haven't heard of macks from shore, and haven't even read/heard about headboats targeting them in recent years. "Back in the day" macks, even further back "whiting" aka "frostfish", were targeted off the Long Branch pier.


You could try to scout out reports from tackle shops or headboats

Yes, I read how, often on New Year's eve folks would go out onto Long Branch at midnight and pick up whiting washed up on the beaches.

Another era....

Itching to get out but, water still not warm enough IMHO. Has anyone used Global Sea Temps site? Know how accurate they are? Looks like a lot of back bay sites listed and a bit easier to navigate than the NOAA site.
