The bay temps have been steady in the mid to upper
40's. I was in back of O.C. last night and had
readings as low as 42 on the last of the incoming
near the inlet. As I made my way further in
back, the water temp hit 49. I'm sure you can
find warmer water toward the end of the outgoing!
Put the boat in the water Sunday near the bottom of the tide. Cape May harbor was 47. It was 47 going out the inlet with 45 on the beach front. I was just running not fishing. Back bay flats behind Wildwood were as high as 50. Things should start up soon for artificals. Was going to try today but we had 25 to 30 mph winds.
As of Sunday afternoon, we were reading 51 degrees in the back bay in Avalon at the end of the outgoing. Had one nice hit out in the inlet, but it was just too sloppy to stay where we wanted to fish in the inlet.....
