Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report
Thursday, September 27, 2007: Waves: 2 to 2.5 feet out of the south; no swells yet from large low pressure in the ocean off SE U.S. Water clarity: The hard south winds have churned the water adjacent to the beaches but not far out. Mid-Island, there is a 50-yard swath of brownish water with clean water not far off. I have seen water like this make surf casting very interesting as blues…Continue

‘Good Doggy Creature’ and Heady Seals
I’ve been so Island-locked with Holgate-based trips that I’ve all but abandoned any and all transpontine activities.
(Word help: Transpontine, pronounced trans-PON-tyn, an adjective…Continue

(Above: This Mercedes buggy is just too hot for the beach. It went to ablazin' at noon today in Surf City. I had first seen it as some gray smoke was coming from under the hood. By the time I alerted my photogs (Ryan Morrill took this picture), the SUV had taken a turn for the hotter. The SCFD used foam to end the fire but not before it burnt nearby signs, fences and bushes.)…Continue

Fished southern LBI Thursday p.m. and Friday a.m. Thursday night was bordering on un-fishable, the water was filled with busted up pieces of jellyfish that were a constant menace. Many times I had no choice but to cut my line and re-tie my rig. Some bits of jellyfish jam made it all the way to my reel and as it got darker there was no choice but to call it quits. I did manage to catch a handful of blues that were slightly bigger than the late summer pick, this time they were up to about 4…Continue

Tuesday, September 18, 2007: Waves: Large and somewhat gnarly. Water clarity: Fair. Water temp: 67.
This wind has gone from troublesome to tedious. For three days running the NE gusts have blown away all potential for easy boat fishing and have either driven away surfcasters or…Continue

Tuesday, September 11, 2007: Waves: 2-3 foot south swell. Water clarity: Fair, some discoloration. Water temps: Mid-70s.
It lit up in Holgate today, despite cloudiness and even some rain spritzes. With winds honking south, then howling west, there was enough bait moving around to feed all of Thailand. I have no idea what that means but it…Continue

Monday, September 10, 2007. Waves: Fairly strong 3-4 foot medium-period swell from departing Gabrielle. Water clarity: Excellent. Water temps: Toasty 75 to 77.
Ideal conditions today as winds remained light. A wholesale effort was made to cash in on the last day of fluking. Boats zipped out to very deep water and successes in some instances. Good fluking was also had near reefs. Here’s one success story:
“THREE PEAT!!!! Almost. No 7 seven pound fluke, but a 23.5" 5.26lb., 21"…Continue
