Tuesday, October 16, 2012 -- Can't get off the striper snide -- Chauncey, fetch my dingy.

Just another bass photo - but unlike most fish-holding pictures, where the angler looks like he's about to receive an anal exam, this guy has a damn good facial attitude . Even the fish seems kinda happy.…

Coyote video re-posting on request. YouTube snafu fixed. Thanx.

The following video shows an example of coyote tracks, found at a local quarry. It is a very large coyote taking strangely long steps, likely running, though the tracks are so finely defined they don't indicate that.

Afew more classic pics of olden LBI

Above: That sure looks like one jumbo kingfish this fall angler has showily landed. The rod bend and the strained facial expression on the angler's face --  unknown soul,  late 1930s to early 1940s -- also hints…

Friday, October 12, 2012: Still fishin' for better fishin'; Classic warms up a slight bit; Holgate's dead forest murder to get by

 

 

(Above: Take a wild guess at what was hurting the fishing during low tide today? This grass attack was toward Holgate Rip and was not that prevalent along most of the LBI beachfronts. It often shows after storms, when higher tides wash the…
