\uap>Wednesday, November 30, 2016: Now that was some fog. I went to Holgate and even though there were next to no tracks in the sand – either human or vehicles – I had to drive at a crippled snail’s pace. I kid you not. The visibility was under 50 feet and close to zero now and again. It was a bit better on the rest of the… Continue

Monday, November 28, 2016: Late-fall perfection remains in firm control, at least through a big chunk of today.

 

\uap>UPDATE: South winds have begun, late-day. They'll be picking up. This should have a beach bite going by tomorrow. Unfortunately, there is also an out-of-the-blue groundswell arriving out of the east and north; -- three foot waves were showing with the rising tide. That wave action could stir things up a tad more than needed, nonetheless, think bait and two rods. Then, work a plugging rod to… Continue

Saturday, November 26, 2016: Ok, so where were we before I took much-needed break to give thanks – and be pissed.

\uap>Wednesday, November 23, 2016: It was the Great Atlantic Aquarium out there today. Mid-Island saw some near-beach waters that were just about as crystal clear as our piece of sea gets. This is not a good surfcasting thing. It sure made it easy to see the near-beach pods of peanuts. The… Continue

\uap>Late-day update (full daily blog below): Headed to Holgate where the turbidity from the nearby beach replenishment has given the water an awkward looking tint ... not unlike sewer water. Sorry, but that's the shade. However, the water is not in any way polluted, just dingy.

\uap>As I note down below, the turbidity might actually help the bass bite a bit ... though not for me. I threw my arm off… Continue
