When fishing the Delaware Bay in Cape May County....Would any type of West wind in your face be an advantage, like a north east win on the ocean side?

Planning on getting out this weekend, damn wind looks like it'll be kicking

Look at the new "on the water" magazine for this month. Talks about what your question is in detail for the exact location you're asking about.

Years of personal experience tells me that everything in the bay bites the day before a good NE Wind. Otherwise I like it onshore, depending on your location.

Due to the relatively shallow waters of the D Bay combined with the fact that a Westerlie wind has whipped up the surface coming from Delaware - 15 miles across- the water is usually pretty mucked up and loaded with debris. I make it a point to surf/jetty fish the D Bay when the wind is at my back. Even in a STRONG NE wind the beaches are real comfortable and calm where i fish.These beaches along the D Bay are lower than the land mass behind you--which blocks most of the wind. It's not like a 'good NE wind is better for stripers'--Ocean beaches theory. The D Bay turns into unfishable crap on the Jersey side in a stiff steady West wind. I've surf/jetty fished from NCM to Anglesea since the mid 70's.
