Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report
Tinkerbell will get well if you clap your hands ... Then again ...
Sunday, January 15, 2017: Despite the chill, it was a hot day to walk the outback. Came across huge wild canine tracks that were surely a coywolf. I have gotten half a dozen reports of massive “coyotes” in this same region. Those add validity to statewide reports of coyote/wolf mixes issuing forth around the Central and South Jersey. The only other possibility – and far from an impossibility – is a coyote/German Shepherd mix.
Saw this in Manahawkin Shop-rite's seafood section. Hmmmm.
And how to make watermelon flavored alligator fillets ...
BOGGED DOWN: I’ve gotten a load of responses to my ruined bog/wetlands video. Most of it is fiercely critical of off-roaders. Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3s6GQGf8LI&feature=youtu.be
While I’m far less infuriated at average riders that doesn’t mean I’m not duly pissed at the carnage by numbnuts. I want to believe there is some way to weed out the mindless ruiners from the good riders. Many folks aren’t as inclined to find an amicable coexistence in the Pines. And they might be right.
Sent my way by Albert Horner “Jay. I can show you hundreds of areas like the one you just videoed. Please go to my blog www.pinebarrensundersiege.com and you can get just a small taste of what is going on out there. I just spent the day with 15 volunteers blockading a piece of private property in the Whitesbog area that has been destroyed by the off-roaders. Would ask you to support Pinelands Preservation Alliance and the work that Jason Howell is doing with them to expose and, hopefully, stop this carnage of our public lands.
I need to share this ... and it really isn't being critical of quarrying in the Pines, an accepted historic usage. Simply notice that the Phoenix Pinelands Corp. -- with a fun motto "You can't buy better sand from nicer people!" is as large as the heart of the nearby town of Warren Grove. Phoenix was founded in 1993, though the quarry is way older.
By the by, I likely cross a sensitive conservationist line when I admit that the land reclaimed after quarrying is done -- and as demanded by law -- has led to some amazing looking lakes and reforested areas. No, I'm not hyping the concept of arbitrary lake building in the Pines. I'm simply noting that since quarrying is legally allowed anyway -- and that won't change soon -- there is some silver lining to be had, via ultra-deep, turquoise waters you won't see this side of the Caribbean.
Check out this quarry over near Woodmansie -- near where Rte. 72 passes under the old RR overpass; Woodland Twp. Burlington County.
Below is a starting point to buuying American in the angling realm ...
