Thursday, September 05, 2019: Getting testy out there as Dorian noses northward, ready to turn out to sea around Cape Hatteras, which could take a bit of a plastering. Expectedly, there are sundry guesses at the extent we’ll feel the fading wrath of this deadly and insanely destructive storm. There are places in the Bahamas that have as much damage a that caused by a massive tsunami hit. Let’s just wait until tomorrow and we’ll know the blow, which the Weather Service says won’t top 40 mph. Yet, I’ve heard tales of gusts twice that force. Again, just hang onto your hats, the entire cyclonic saga will be over by tomorrow night and Saturday will be one of the clearest imaginable days, the sky buffed clean of all pollutants. As to impacts on the beach and bay. Let’s simply say we’ve seen many a storm of this caliber.

Below: Dorian victim (OBX) ... 

It seems our winds will be NE. That’s a good thing. The island is geared to tolerate those winds better than, say, 50 mph E or SE winds. For south end buggyists, honking winds out of the east and south are ruinous for the just-opened Holgate refuge buggying ramp.

After the Dorian passage, we’ll be feeling a minor touch of fall in the night air, not so much during the day, though, which will hold a ton of sun.

BAY ANGLING BEAT: I want to try plugging/jigging some deeper water on the east end of the big bridge, a public recreation area, off the road going into the now hugely popular Boatyard watering hole. The area is at the far west end of the east-west access road (parallel to the Causeway).

That small recreation area will compliment the huge one west of the Big Bridge (north side). That larger bulkheaded stretch now seems to be partially open to recreational usages. Part of it is paved, other parts not so much. 

Here's the NJDOT comments on those areas: "Other public access accommodations that are part of this project include new parking lots and enhanced fishing and recreation areas. These areas have lower railings in some places to make it easier for those with disabilities to fish."


I’ll be using this blog more and more for general LBI things since many/most impact anglers in one way or another.  

NEW SB TRAFFIC PATTERNS: As we get closer to the Ship Bottom phase of the NJDOT Causeway project, we need to ready ourselves for things getting seriously complicated when driving through town via 8th and 9th street. Those being the Causeway ingress and egress roads.

Tons of digging will accompany the placing of an enhanced drainage system thereabouts. Then, there’s the concurrent building of an advanced pumping station, meant to offload flood waters during storms and even high tides. The pump will be attuned to the new drainage system, automatically knowing when to mechanically offload incoming rain and high tide water. It is also equipped to hold out incoming bay water. I’m going to get a look-see at the pump design. As to the eco-advisability of deluging the bay with gunk-saturated street runoff ...

Less dramatic on the earth-moving front -- but still highly impactful to motorists--will be the changes to now one-way traffic sections of Central Avenue (southbound) and Long Beach Boulevard (northbound) on 8th and 9th streets. Both will assume a two-way traffic flow.  

By as early as next year, Long Beach Boulevard will have two-way traffic where it is now only northbound at the "Circle."

Central Avenue, which is one-way southbound from around the library past the Wawa, will also be switched to two-way traffic.

Oddly enough, the new two-way traffic setup on both those roadways will seemingly require only one new signal. The new signal (system) will be a dual-direction signal system placed at the Boulevard and 8th Street (near Whalon's and 7-11).

There will also be a tweaking of the signal currently at 9th Street -- the one that now cycles to red, northbound, allowing oncoming/eastbound 9th Street traffic to go north. It will be replaced by a multi-direction signal system, based in the center of a newly crafted intersection. That signal system will control northbound and southbound Boulevard traffic. It will also control westbound 9th Street traffic – and a small amount of 9th Street traffic coming west off the ocean block.

On Central Avenue, the existing signal system will be adjusted for two-direction traffic.

There are also some turning lane tweaks that I’m too dizzy to get into right now.

The end look will have totally obliterated the old “Circle.” 

NJDOT comments: "The next major piece of the project, expected to begin in 2020, will address safety and operational issues at the Route 72/Marsha Drive intersection in Stafford Township, and operational and drainage improvements in Ship Bottom on Long Beach Island. Two-way traffic will be restored along Central Avenue and Long Beach Boulevard, and traffic signals along 8th and 9th Streets (Route 72) will be improved. For more information, visit NJDOT’s project-specific website."

ELSEWHERE: The former Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station might be making the oddest of eco-turnabout, going from being environmentally suspect in a nuclear vein to becoming vividly green in a renewable energy sense. The Waretown mayor says he’s in talks with the Danish company Oersted, the world leader in wind power. Initial plans has the onetime nuclear facility becoming essentially a collection point for the electricity generated by Oersted’s 80 to 100 wind turbines coming to an ocean farm roughly 15 miles or so SE of Little Egg Inlet.

By the by, the planned turbine location has been moved many miles further out to sea on hopes of steering clear of the flyways of migrating birds. Hey, to me that’s a fairly magnanimous gesture. It didn’t need to be done. And, it’ll cost the firm a pretty penny … or Kroner in Demark.

A buddy of mine who was a lineman for many a decade said it makes total sense to use the site since it already has all power-grid infrastructure in place. All it would take is the placement of transformers to distribute the power in a usable wattage.

Not that I enter into it, but I’m for anything that might assure the plant’s pristine piece of property – which extends all the way to the Parkway – doesn’t become a huge senior citizen village or the likes.



The day was good but blustery. Took a ride to find some big girls and we landed 5 big fish. We also had a continuous short bite with some keepers mixed in. Unfortunately that was our last day for a few days of fishing . See you in a few days

The beginning & or a good sign of what a early fall might be ? 
just in: Brendon with his 28” keeper at 8.34 lbs. North end, artificial. Nice

No photo description available.


Enjoyed their Labor Day. Three keepers and about three dozen shorts without a boat. End of Flounder season is getting close, gotta get em while we still can.

Jingles Bait and Tackle

I think most of you, who follow us and/or have been in the store, know our ace, Connor Smilon. Labor Day marks the point when Connor leaves us to head back to Stockton for his studies. Carole Ann and I have such mixed feelings, while we selfishly dread losing Connor for the Fall, Winter and Spring, but we are happy he is maintaining his focus on college.

As anyone who comes into Jingles when Connor is here, knows, he has become the cornerstone of our fishing knowledge, helping us with tips and tricks, inventory and bait selection. Connor has truly made his mark at Jingles and has become an integral part of our Jingles Family!! We are lucky that he has embraced all of us.

Connor has committed to stopping in when able and you may even see a guest appearance behind the counter occasionally until we close for the Winter.

Thanks for everything Connor and best of luck this semester. Go kick butt and we will see you soon!!


No fishing, no evening cruise Friday Sep 6.
Hurricane Dorian, Go away!!! Usual schedule on Saturday & Sunday

Adidas is Making 11 Million Shoes Out of Recycled Ocean Plastic

Plastic pollution in the ocean has always been an environmental issue that has yet to be resolved. While this pending issue is not something that can be solved overnight, some advocates are taking steps bit by bit. Adidas recently announced its initiative to reuse ocean plastics in making 11 million pair of shoes. In their effort to save our oceans from harmful wastes, Adidas collaborates with Parley for the Oceans. This environmental organization aims to address major threats that are plaguing the most important ecosystem of our planet, the oceans. Recycling ocean plastics to make them into shoes is the concept behind Adidas Parley. Through this campaign, they’re hoping to reduce the ocean plastic pollution by making fashionable sportswear out of wastes.

Adidas Parley Product Line

Adidas, in partnership with Parley, has been producing athletic garments by recycling ocean plastics and using it as a material since 2017.  Every Major League Soccer team has jerseys constructed with recycled materials. Adidas Parley has also released mass-produced football products after making Adidas x Parley jerseys for professional football teams. This advocacy paved way for the creation of the Adidas Ultraboost Uncaged Parley Shoe which is sold for $220 per unit. Later on, fashion designer Stella McCartney joined in the making of the Parley Ultraboost X. Adidas Parsley also made its way to collaborate with Wanderlust in making women’s yoga apparels made from ocean plastics.

Fashion breakthrough with a cause

Cyrill Gutsch, the founder of the Parley for the Oceans movement, explains the importance of utilizing merchandise to show their cause. “People expect to be surprised, to learn new things and be inspired to change their ways. Fashion has the power to create trends which make you do things that often make zero sense.”, Gutsch says.

True enough, fashion can speak a cause clearer and louder than any public service announcement could. Many environmentalists have been battling the issue through protests and warnings. But nothing has actually come out of it. In order to encourage the people to take care of our planet, they need to see concrete symbols of change. By buying products that can help reduce environmental problems, this gives people the opportunity to lend a helping hand.

With the help of Parley’s technicians and scientists, the Adidas Parley team upcycles ocean plastics into a textile-like material. The designers then weaves the Parley textile into the Adidas garments to create eco-friendly yet fashionable sportswear.




NASA admits that climate change occurs because of changes in Earth’s solar orbit, and NOT because of SUVs and fossil fuels

(Natural News) For more than 60 years, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has known that the changes occurring to planetary weather patterns are completely natural and normal. But the space agency, for whatever reason, has chosen to let the man-made global warming hoax persist and spread, to the detriment of human freedom.

It was the year 1958, to be precise, when NASA first observed that changes in the solar orbit of the earth, along with alterations to the earth’s axial tilt, are both responsible for what climate scientists today have dubbed as “warming” (or “cooling,” depending on their agenda). In no way, shape, or form are humans warming or cooling the planet by driving SUVs or eating beef, in other words.

But NASA has thus far failed to set the record straight, and has instead chosen to sit silently back and watch as liberals freak out about the world supposedly ending in 12 years because of too much livestock, or too many plastic straws.

In the year 2000, NASA did publish information on its Earth Observatory website about the Milankovitch Climate Theory, revealing that the planet is, in fact, changing due to extraneous factors that have absolutely nothing to do with human activity. But, again, this information has yet to go mainstream, some 19 years later, which is why deranged, climate-obsessed leftists have now begun to claim that we really only have 18 months left before the planet dies from an excess of carbon dioxide (CO2).

The truth, however, is much more along the lines of what Serbian astrophysicist Milutin Milankovitch, after whom the Milankovitch Climate Theory is named, proposed about how the seasonal and latitudinal variations of solar radiation that hit the earth in different ways, and at different times, have the greatest impact on earth’s changing climate patterns.

The below two images (by Robert Simmon, NASA GSFC) help to illustrate this, with the first showing earth at a nearly zero orbit, and the second showing earth at a 0.07 orbit. This orbital change is depicted by the eccentric, oval shape in the second image, which has been intentionally exaggerated for the purpose of showing the massive change in distance that occurs between the earth and the sun, depending on whether it is at perihelion or aphelion.

“Even the maximum eccentricity of the Earth’s orbit – 0.07 – it would be impossible to show at the resolution of a web page,” notes the Hal Turner Radio Show. “Even so, at the current eccentricity of .017, the Earth is 5 million kilometers closer to Sun at perihelion than at aphelion.”

The biggest factor affecting earth’s climate is the SUN

As for earth’s obliquity, or its change in axial tilt, the below two images (Robert Simmon, NASA GSFC) show the degree to which the earth can shift on both its axis and its rotational orientation. At the higher tilts, earth’s seasons become much more extreme, while at lower tilts they become much more mild. A similar situation exists for earth’s rotational axis, which depending on which hemisphere is pointed at the sun during perihelion, can greatly impact the seasonal extremes between the two hemispheres.

Based on these different variables, Milankovitch was able to come up with a comprehensive mathematical model that is able to compute surface temperatures on earth going way back in time, and the conclusion is simple: Earth’s climate has alwaysbeen changing, and is in a constant state of flux due to no fault of our own as human beings.

When Milankovitch first put forward his model, it went ignored for nearly half a century. Then, in 1976, a study published in the journal Science confirmed that Milankovitch’s theory is, in fact, accurate, and that it does correspond to various periods of climate change that have occurred throughout history.

In 1982, six years after this study was published, the National Research Council of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences adopted Milankovitch’s theory as truth, declaring that:

“… orbital variations remain the most thoroughly examined mechanism of climatic change on time scales of tens of thousands of years and are by far the clearest case of a direct effect of changing insolation on the lower atmosphere of Earth.”

If we had to sum the whole thing up in one simple phrase, it would be this: The biggest factor influencing weather and climate patterns on earth is the sun, period. Depending on the earth’s position to the sun at any given time, climate conditions are going to vary dramatically, and even create drastic abnormalities that defy everything that humans thought they knew about how the earth worked.

But rather than embrace this truth, today’s climate “scientists,” joined by leftist politicians and a complicit mainstream media, insist that not using reusable grocery bags at the supermarket and not having an electric vehicle are destroying the planet so quickly that we absolutely must implement global climate taxes as the solution.

“The climate change debate is not about science. It is an effort to impose political and economic controls on the population by the elite,” wrote one commenter at the Hal Turner Radio Show.

“And it’s another way to divide the population against itself, with some who believe in man-made global warming and some who don’t, i.e. divide and conquer.”
