Sunday Oct. 07, 07 -- Grab bag and popper talk

Sunday, October 07, 2007: Waves: Down for the a.m. but picked up with that odd blast of honking north winds that came in midday – and caught a lot of boaters off guard in the ocean. Water clarity” off and on; patches of murky water moving around with clean water coming on in some beaches.…

Sat. Oct 6, 2007: Crowded out there -- and fishing is decent to boot

(This is my one fundraiser of the year. I use it to take stock of what folks think of my website(s) and to cover the time and expense accrued by the site(s). I have enjoyed working my daily and weekly updates this past year. Switching to the blog format has allowed for a freer writing style. I get to put in a lot of fun (and opinionated) stuff. By the same token, I couldn’t stay up and running…

Thursday/Friday, October 04, 05 2007: Waves: Finally dropping a bit but still three to four foot waves on the larger set; easterly ground swell from large system well of the coast.

Wed. Oct. 3, 2007 -- Jellyfish slime in the way; tales of north bass

Wednesday, October 03, 2007: Waves: Swells still largish and powerful; surf has held the surfcasting down, light fishing pressure today. Water clarity: Good but the jellyfish mucous has returned on many beaches, especially south end.

I’ll begin with the stories of bass on the north end. Fish to 35 inches have made the scales and other…

Saturday Sept. 29, 2007 -- Great weather, modest hooking --

Saturday, September 29, 2007: Waves: 1-2 feet out of the east. Water clarity: Good but with some weedy and off-color patches. Water temps: Holding in the mid-60s; should be dropping fairly rapidly with this cold snap; this time of year water temps are very ambient, meaning they adjust with air temps more than solar heating, which is the primary influence during the summer when daylight is at a peak.…

Thursday, Sept. 27, 2007 -- Weather Service is OK

Thursday, September 27, 2007: Waves: 2 to 2.5 feet out of the south; no swells yet from large low pressure in the ocean off SE U.S. Water clarity: The hard south winds have churned the water adjacent to the beaches but not far out. Mid-Island, there is a 50-yard swath of brownish water with clean water not far off. I have seen water like this make surf casting very interesting as blues…

‘Good Doggy Creature’ and Heady Seals

I’ve been so Island-locked with Holgate-based trips that I’ve all but abandoned any and all transpontine activities.

(Above: This Mercedes buggy is just too hot for the beach. It went to ablazin' at noon today in Surf City. I had first seen it as some gray smoke was coming from under the hood. By the time I alerted my photogs (Ryan Morrill took this picture), the SUV had taken a turn for the hotter. The SCFD used foam to end the fire but not before it burnt nearby signs, fences and bushes.)…

Tuesday, Sept. 18, 07 -- Winds won't quit; Porcupine Fish Pokes

Tuesday, September 18, 2007: Waves: Large and somewhat gnarly. Water clarity: Fair. Water temp: 67.

This wind has gone from troublesome to tedious. For three days running the NE gusts have blown away all potential for easy boat fishing and have either driven away surfcasters or…
