Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report
Maybe you don't want to be a fat fish in a lazy pond in your next life.
Monday, August 31, 2015: You’ll see further below that a nice kingfish was weighed in at Surf City Bait and Tackle. What I wouldn’t give for a good kingfish fall. Since these kingfish are spawned out, I’m not opposed to…Continue

OK, what's wrong with this picture ... or, maybe, this man???

Desperate times call for desperate actions.
Thursday, August 27, 2015: Another amazing day on LBI. The fishing is damn decent if the few reports I’m getting are true. “Had some of the best fluking all summer. Three keepers made it ideal. One trigger fish.”
I’ve gotten more fun reports about…Continue

Somebody call Sharpton!!!
Tuesday, August 25, 2015: Face it, half the fun of fall fishing is getting more than ready –while summer still has a month to go. It’s a bit like getting Christmas ready before Halloween. Sorta.
I bring this up because of…Continue

Almost NFL time.
Monday, August 24, 2015: Wind is low and slow today, swinging to the south as the day goes on. The ocean is warms (75 to almost 80) with…Continue

Saturday, August 22, 2015: The northeast winds came in at maybe 10 to 12 mph. It snotted up the ocean a bit but the bay was fishable. The winds won’t get any worse than this for the weekend. Air temps were fine, low-80s along the beach. Ocean water temp is 74 to 78 degrees. Waves are three to four feet,…Continue

Dog days of summer.
Friday, August 21, 2015: It now seems the forecasted northeast winds aren’t developing quite as expected. We’re actually in for some calm air Saturday a.m. that calmness could ruin any chance of any early-day ocean drift for fluke until later-day winds pick up a bit throughout…Continue

On first seeing that new makeover ...
Wednesday, August 19, 2015: The ocean remains churned by south winds, though not as rough as it has been. There is also a decent east swell to three feet, making surfcasting and inlet passages quite bumpy.…Continue

Monday, August 17, 2015: Hard south winds have taken control and the ocean is responding by getting a tad dirty brown along some beach…Continue

"Does it hurt when I do this???"
REPLEN UPDATE: As to our new replenished beaches, I got worrisome word that the Beach Haven and Holgate area might not be seeing sand for many moons. Dredge Padre Island, one of the two dredges working LBI, has been removed from its current LBI duties to…Continue

Below: George G. with an insane cobia.
Saturday, August 15, 2015: Boy it’s nice out – but boiling hot in places. Hopefully, the southeast wind will be off the ocean enough to cool the beaches down. I say that because we’re actually forecasted to have southwest winds, which funnel in the Pinelands-heated air; way too…Continue

Common take-off miscalculation: Failing to compensate for the added weight of a chewy.
Friday, August 14, 2015: These are the true dog days of summer, not simply because of the next batch of arriving heat but also because of the tediousness that now enters many…Continue

Tuesday 8/11/15: As I slave away on production day, here is a buncha interesting fishing and seafood reading ... at least I find it of interest.
The coming days of west winds should usher in some fine boat, surf and bay fishing. The heat shouldn't be all that bad, either, though the westerlies will have LBI at the same temp as the mainland. Sun factor will be…Continue

Monday, August 10, 2015: News of the day on LBI is the near death experience for a young man digging too deeply in the Surf City sand.
I was there as an amazing rescue resuscitation was performed. I was videotaping but quickly caught such static I backed off.
I then wanted to simply show the young man being taken off the beach, stabilized and ready for transport. I had no…Continue

Sunday, August 09, 2015: The winds backed off some but not enough to calm the surf down or allow small craft to toy around outside. I was…Continue
