Tuesday, December 25, 2018: The Atlantic Ocean, LBI Division, gets no flatter than it is today. When surfing, I dubbed it Lake Atlantic. Such fully laid-down conditions have become a total rarity in recent wild-weather years.

Not that there’s a whole bunch to do out there, fishing-wise. A few folks are trying, though. I’m hearing of real small, one-hander bass taking bloodworms.…

Note: The snowys currently hanging in Holgate and other LBI areas mainly eat other birds. I base this on the dozen or so boluses (regurgitated balls) I've opened, though one had mouse material. . (…

Friday, December 21, 2018: Let’s see, my vacation began yesterday afternoon. That was right about when it began raining and flooding. My first full day off, as in today, makes yesterday look like a bargain. Island is puddled under, with some bay flooding mixed in. It’s so drab that even a trip to Holgate wasn't worth the journey, although I sometimes use drabness as a photo op, looking for that, uh, drab look. Something about a rain-soaked snowy owl elicits that odd “poor…

Tuesday, December 18, 2018: Ocean is getting smoothed by west winds. Blowout tides should allow some clamming by tomorrow, as my vacation commences ... knee-deep in mud. Works for me.   

For buggyists, virtually all entry points onto the beach were impossibly sanded over during Sunday’s…

Friday, December 07, 2018: Did a chilly clam dig in Holgate. It was a tough dig due to that increasing mud sinkiness.

Video: Check out this massive sand buildup, just west of the Holgate Refuge's northern reaches. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peuBVcX6Zo0 . 

This is where a load of replen sand has gone. Ironically, the pumped in sand was meant to create an oceanfront beach and it is seemingly…

Friday, November 30, 2018: Finally had a dang decent Holgate day. I had actually become fairly disenchanted with the far south end.

Friday, November 30, 2018: Finally had a dang decent Holgate day. I had actually become fairly disenchanted with the far south end. Yes, that’s me saying that, a Holgate aficionado for over 50 years. But, this fall, it had become an unproductive, even tedious, journey to the Island’s far southlands,…

Monday, November 26, 2018: More downpours – and once again of a squally nature, meaning the rain is coming down in bursts, a tad tropics-like. While the wind is tame…
