Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report
OK, so maybe there are one or two things a pit bull can't always do better than other dogs ...
Friday, January 30, 2015: Holgate is an easy drive-down at low tide. A lone owl is way up near the washover area – and also well over toward the bay. It’s one of the heavily marked owls. I haven’t seen…Continue

Wednesday, January 28, 2015: I’m told the gate at the Holgate parking lot is again open to buggying. I might go down and give it a go … if I see enough snowless sand to drive on. Hopefully, the ramp isn’t hard packed with ice and snow. When leaving the beach, that seemingly innocent slope can be like driving up a luge run.
Below: For folks using indoor pools this winter ... …Continue

"I love ya, man ... "
Tuesday, January 27, 2015 … (Prelude to my weekly 1/18/15 column. I’ll let you know when the entire out-there column is on the cloud. We have a fine issue of The SandPaper…Continue

Sunday, January 25, 2015: So it looks like we’re goin to see some snow. I’m holding out that the storm just might begin as rain. That might reduce the final inch count, slightly. Of…Continue
"This bloody thing is busted, eh????"
Saturday, January 24, 2015: Winds have gone west but there is still a strong storm swell showing, even though we didn’t get all that much wind from last night’s soaking storm. Some beach overwash in usual skinny-beach…Continue

"Oh, yeh, ya wanna piece of this? ... Doh!"
Thursday, January 22, 2015: Well, there’s some whiteness sitting about out there. Let the whities (snow lovers) relish the moment. I’m thinkin’ the not-that-cold weather in the next few days will take that snow out in nothing flat, then we have…Continue

It's all fun and games until someone loses a ... left nut.
Friday, January 16, 2015: There were three snowies in Holgate today: The persistent “regular” one still hanging around 14,000 feet; the white one, today hanging right at the bend in the vegetation as you start to turn west; and the final one, way up on the top of the high dunes.…Continue

Wednesday, January 14, 2015: I’m stuck between a block and a cold spot. Not only is it tough to come up with ideas and issues but 2014 was a year of a million words for me … I’ve hit a bit of block when it comes to getting in here daily, even if only to say “Hey.”
I do like the looks of…Continue

"Hey, things are tough everywhere."
Sunday, January 11, 2015: The beaches are frozen solid in many areas. That can make for tricky beach driving when the frozen crust breaks and a buggy sinks into the soft sand below. However, it’s not bad for a nice crusty cruise just to see the ocean up…Continue

Below: Not sure why, but for me this has an odd Holgate feel to it. "Oh, you can easily make it!"
Thursday, January 08, 2015: The Manahawkin Bay wasted no time freezing over. It’s not overly thick ice but it’s pretty much mainland-to-Island coverage.
There had long been a…Continue
"Uh, this is not going quite right ..."
Wednesday, January 07, 2015: The cruel days are upon us. Single-digit lows tonight will be the abnormal norm. On long-term average, we should see a nighttime low of 25 and a daytime high of 42. That average goes back well over 100 years. As we all now say, “Where’s global warming…Continue
Now, this is when you know tornadoes like the back of your hand:
Monday, January 05, 2015: Well, it’s coming. The first true fanging from of winter will bite to the bone since we really haven’t boned up for the cold. Sure, we’ve had a couple raw days so far but what we’ll see by week’s end is…Continue

Saturday, January 03, 2015: For my vacation, I got about as much rest as a Holgate snowy owl. Speaking of which, talk about popularity on the wing. Those south end owls remain an insane draw. There have been caravans of folks going down to “See the owl.”
Once the arriving lookers reach owl territory, it’s a…Continue
