Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report
Friday, November 11, 2011: Feelin’ mighty westerly out there, the way it usually does in early Oct. not mid-Nov. And the slight chill won’t be lasting. There’s a chance at record highs in the not too distant future. I like seeing that warmth because it often implies south winds. Sunday could see south winds to 25 knots. That’s gotta kick up some serious stripering.
Boat fishing is real rocky with gale warnings flying, though I see and hear folks inside the inlets working small bass. Surfcasting is going to go quiet quickly. However, I can’t count the number of years when mega-bass has come out of the suds when most everything else has shut down. Of course, there’s the likely arrival of dogs and skates. Those junkers come with west winds the way bass and blues due with southerlies.
There is an auction tonight in Tuckerton. See http://www.auctionzip.com/cgi-bin/auctionview.cgi?lid=1283260&k... or go to Auctionzip.com and search with 30 miles of zip code 08008.
!!! I counted five fresh-kill deer along the sides of the roads between Tabernacle and Tuckerton, mainly on rtes. 72 and 539. You just gotta keep an eye open every single instant your zipping along those high-speed roads. That’s doubly so for Rte. 9, from Barnegat to New Gretna. Many deer strikes are right near home because you put your guard down. Mantra: It’s not the crossing deer you see that gets ya; it’s the second, third, forth … Ya snooze, ya lose.
AP releases this week:
A 21-year-old was killed after hitting a deer with his car Saturday night.
Zachary Hawkins was driving with his 14-year-old brother when the deer ran out in front of them.
Kentucky State Police said it happened around 6:00 p.m. Saturday on Highway 41 just south of Crofton in Christian County.
Investigators said the deer went through the windshield killing Hawkins. The brother was also hurt and taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center in Hopkinsville.
Investigators said neither one of them was wearing a seat belt.
