Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report

Wednesday, November 26, 2014: I caught some minor heat recently for essentially telling it like it is – or as it is if you’re one of those grammatically-retentive types

Noon: Reports of a long thunder-like rumble. I felt it more than heard it here in Surf City. Lasted longer than normal thunder. Weird.

I talked with Weather Service and they said only thundersnow on radar was SW of Philly. Way too far away for us to hear. Double weird. 

Wednesday, November 26, 2014: I caught some minor heat recently for essentially telling it like it is – or as it is if you’re one of those grammatically-retentive types. It was over my willingness to repeatedly write when the fishing surely sucked out there. The thing that pisses me off over such an allegation is nobody is more upbeat when it comes to hyping what tomorrow might bring, fishing-wise. I’m always looking for some positive points on the horizon. In fact, I catch more heat when I’m all gung-ho on what might be coming – and it doesn’t materialize. Oh, well, as Lincoln said, “You can’t please all the people all the time … so f*** ‘em.” Actually he said that last part under his breath so it isn’t often publicized.

I’ll even go upbeat on this downright pissified day. The storm that has everyone riveted will run its course in nothing flat and maybe even depart quickly enough to allow for some fun surfside plugging as early as tomorrow -- before the demands of Thanksgiving kick in.

I got an email from an ecstatic caster who landed a traditional Thanksgiving Striper yesterday, using a “flavored plastic worm” on a ¾-ounce plain jighead. Of course he then bemoaned the fact he couldn’t get a second one since (and I’ve seen this myself) the striped bass platter is the first to empty at the dinner table. It begins with "Well, just give me a little piece to try" -- and soon it's a fork-race for the last bass morsel. Did you know that striper (rockfish) is going for as much as $20 a pound down south? Out of the blue, and oddly, rockfish/striper is being hyped as a close replacement for not-readily-available Patagonian toothfish, aka  Chilean sea bass -- which is actually a type of cod.

D.M. has the cure for striper demands at the holiday table. He thaws the bass he’s taken from his boat and makes fish cakes for the feast. Cooler yet, he then takes the same fishcake mix and partially stuffs the turkey with it. Best of two taste worlds there.

It's called logical thinking ...

If anyone does the Columbus Auction on Thanksgiving morn, it is open. They’ve been working on rebuilding burnt-out building (those Amish are amazing) and the outside set-up area (all asphalt) wasn’t affected by the blaze, obviously. 

The Inside Stores will be reopening Wednesday, November 26th @ 9:00am!
 
THE OUTDOORFLEA MARKET IS OPEN!

Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday!

I couldn't pass up a perfect tide and weather window, especially before the coastal storm. Our night on the back bays started slow, but Jake and I pulled it out in the end. The fish turned on as soon as the tide started falling. We caught a bunch of stripers to 28 inches and went home happy!

Listening to the NOAA webinar about the new recreational fishing information survey. Seems that the new one (pilot study) is significantly better (much greater response) than the random digital dialer. This will have huge impacts on stock assessments and allocations.
