Tuesday Sept. 11, 2007 -- Holgate lights up

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…

Monday, Sept. 10, 07 -- Clean waters, fluking ends -- Holgate Happenings

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"…

Commercial netting close to beach

Last fall, Oct 06, I saw a commercial netter working about 200 yards
off the beach at Brant Beach. They were scooping up dozens of 18-24
inch fish.
Was that legal ?

I will be out on an archeological dig today and onto…

Friday, August 31, 2007: Waves: Building 2-3 foot easterly ground swell; smaller northerly wind swell. Water clarity: Very good. Water temps: Mid-70s, highest yesterday was 77.

Warmest water of the year has moved in. North winds will keep the water balmy. Waves could pick up today as groundswells from a couple offshore disturbances mix with…

Don’t you just hate time warps?

The cosmos does a belch and just like that the time period between Memorial Day and Labor Day, which is supposed to run something like 14 weeks, is over in just under a couple weeks.

Sure, to the untrained eye it looks like we had a full summer, based on inaccurate measuring tools like clocks, calendars and…

Monday Aug. 27, 2007: Slow but trying to unslow

Monday, August 27, 2007: Waves: 2-4 foot swell, generally easterly but touch of north windswell. Water clarity: Good.

The fishing has been very much to the liking of the Slowskys, those tortoises that work for Comcast -- and like everything comatose or slower. Our angling slowness harkens back to the after-age of the long storm of last week.…

Saturday update: Dangerous fog and heroic effort

Saturday update: Early Afternoon. The combining of scalding hot air and a cool ocean created some very trying times for boats that zipped out early today then ran into water-top fog so thick at least one boat ran aground on LBI. Fortunately, most boat anglers started out the inlets, saw the zero visibility ahead and discretely headed back in. later inn the day much…

August 25, 2007 -- Still sassy out there -- more fluke lady stuff

Saturday, August 25, 2007

Waves: Very persistent wave action via a 4-foot (larger sets) easterly long-period ground swell. Yesterday was honking out there , wave-wise. I was doing volleyball on the beach in Harvey Cedars and the combination of large swell, days of onshore winds and astronomical conditions had set waves…

Special: World Record Fluke Blog -- This may be added to should emails come in

Special World Record Fluke Blog-about:

In the face of a potential world-record fluke, the opinion mill is spitting out splinters left and right. I did an internal debate on whether or not I should let my sites even go there.

I soon decided to let…
