Opinions needed on historic photos ... August 20, 2017: It was dang close to a 10 weekend – 10 as in Bo Derek 10

I need some second opinions on this amazing 1920 look of LBI’s far south end. I’m convinced this shows Beach Haven Inlet when it was fully a-flow.

I seek further input because I’ve heard an opinion that this might show the Holgate Rip and the remnants of Tucker’s Island. That makes total sense. 

I sense it might show Beach Haven Inlet when it was at the end of…

Crabbing

Hi Jay, I just wanted to ask the rhetorical question of where did all the spider crabs go? For the last several years when ever we put out the crab pots we would end up with hundreds of the dreadful things, I have not seen one this summer which is a beautiful thing. We had a quest down last weekend who lives to crab and was in his glory catching 6"&7" blue claws left and right. I am not complaining just seems odd how the spider crabs have vanished. Keep up the good work. Bill

(Will re-post this evening if any updates come in.)

Friday, August 11, 2017: Come on down, we’re holding another weekend here along the Jersey Shore. I too often slip and exclusively use the term “LBI” when talking about fun along the coast. That understates the massive presence – and fun – had by bayside folks, many of whom boat to beat the band, not…
