Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report
TV Time and Parking Hawks
To wind down from the tension of work, I routinely plop down and watch calming shows, like the real life shoot-‘em-up police adventures on Court TV.
I’m really into this new show during which inner-city cops leave electronically…Continue

Thursday, August 09, 2007: Waves: Building (possibly quickly) out of the east as we deal with a small fast-moving storm. Water clarity: Excellent.
There was an interesting showing of stripers today, mainly surfside. A keeper was had in Brant Beach and some near-keeper fish on a couple…Continue

You know it’s full-blown summer when its 6 p.m. and the temperature is still toying with the 100-degree mark. Well, the west winds – and they got testy, pushing 25 knots – that are pushing in that scorchiness will eventually bring down temps – for a short…Continue

Tuesday, August 07, 2007: Waves: 1-3 feet out of the south; glassy. Water clarity: Very good to too clear. Water temps: 70s.
I have been neck-deep in fishing stuff all day. Nothing overly dramatic, except for the further (and complete) break-up of the old wooden scallop boat that went aground on the shoals off Holgate last week. The pieces…Continue

Sunday, August 05, 2007: Waves: Building 3-4 foot short-period north swell. Water clarity: Excllent. Water tmeps: back to the 70s.
What a difference a day and wind shift make. From dank, weedy and cool, the surfside ocean has gone clean, green and mild. Gusty northeasterly wind has ushered in, via downwelling, outstanding water – water that…Continue

Saturday, August 04, 2007: Waves: 2-3 feet out of the south. Water clarity: Poor; the rains and winds have stirred in some ugly, weedy water that should blow out quickly when the wind shifts west tonight. It was already cleaning up midday as light east winds allowed that great water of a couple days back to move back in.
For most of the…Continue

Friday, August 03, 2007: Waves: Building 2-3 foot south windswell. Water clarity: maybe Being lost to side-ass winds; water temps could also take a tumble if upwelling takes place.
By midday, wind played the spoiler nearshore. Hard SE winds blew away ocean fluking – too much drift to…Continue

Thursday, August 02, 2007: Waves: Small – we got virtually nothing from that fast-moving Tropical Storm Chantal (or something like that). Yes, there was a T.S. out there with pretty hefty winds. It went extratropical in nothing flat and maybe produced some waves for Halifax.
How about that water!? After a summer marked by unusually cool –…Continue

Well, for some odd reason we really have to talk full-blown fishing in here this week since someone went and secretly named this column “The Fish Story.” That name change caught me by surprise since it took place so suddenly – something like 20 years ago.
This week, I’m up to my proverbial gills in angling energy, having spent four consecutive…Continue
