May 02, 07 -- Weakies getting stronger -- more fuze blogging

Wednesday, May 02, 2007:

Nights are looking bright thanks to the moon and NJDOT.

Weakfish tales are picking up the pace. While far from peak conditions, the number of ten-pounder-plus sparklers is up and the range is inlet (Beach Haven) to inlet (BL) and famed bayside holes in between.

A few weakie seekers are…

Tuesday, May 01, 2007: What a chunk of wood!

Tuesday, May 01, 2007:

Real nice day – despite my being stuck behind a desk slaving away to get you your bleedin’ SandPaper out there. Just kidding. It’s my pleasure to put out the Island’s favorite reading material.

Quite a few surfcasters and boat anglers out there, per my quick looks at the beachfront and listening in to radio chatter. I don’t want to jinx it but it sure looks like it’s building toward a really fine bass spring – and also a fine bluefish spring, if you like…

Monday, April 30, 2007: Wild Winds and 800 Fuzes of beer on the wall

Monday, April 30, 2007:

Winds gone wild – flashing all around. I’m not sure what the wind forecast was for today but we just hit over SSW 40 mph…

Sunday, April 29, 2007: -- Clammy bass and shrimpy blues

The wind got way testy today, especially late day when the gusts turned on accompanied by some odd showers with isolated bolts of lightning, mainly mainland.

I was deep woodsing it in search of vernal ponds to record for state studies. It would be sunny one minute, rainy the next, sunny the next. Kinda weird.

Bird life is in full swing. I’m pretty good ID’ing the likes…

Saturday, April 28, 2007: Thin Lizzie and the blues -- back in town

Let’s see, I think it was Irish band Thin Lizzie, something like 1976, hit the top of the charts with “The Blues Are Back in Town,” a worldwide smash.

Ok, so maybe I’m not totally versed in pop rock, being a life-long heavy metal aficionado, going back to the Black Sabbath and the rowdier Jimi riffs.

Be it “boys” or “blues,” I know the “back in town” part is correct since a fully reliable source had 4-pound blues today, while fishing in a weakfish hole that hadn’t even been…

April 27, 07 A tad testy out there -- but the weekend should be way fishable

Friday, April 27, 2007:

Obviously quit spitty out there. However, here on LBI we haven’t had nearly the downpourage of folks just to the north where rain is coming down in five-gallon buckets-worth. It has actually bee fishable out there and a few folks have been on the surfside of things. Not much to show, though bass are being caught. The surf stripers are common enough that it’s…

Daily Update and Info to Ponder

Thursday, April 26, 2007:

Not a perfect day, sky-wise, but it wasn’t bad for fishing. I’ve gotten word of stripers in the surf – and not there, also. Per usual, it’s right place/right time and in come as many as half a dozen bass – to keeper size, every six fish or so. Clams working on bass at many locales. The oddest clam success was some night…

Tuesday, November 10, 2015: Might this blow help to spike the surfside bass bite? Sure, why not. It has definitely spiked the surf, which has rushed from small to quite large, overnight,…

Friday Nov. 20, 09 -- Burst of bass and blues in Holgate

It’s that humbling time of the year where I ask for donations to keep this blog up and running. It is a time consuming enterprise but I enjoy it. It’s kinda therapeutic.

Donations can be mailed to: Jay Mann, 222 18th Street, Ship Bottom, NJ, 08008-4418. Being Type A I don’t always have the time to mail Thank-you note… Continue

Friday Nov.; 13, 09 -- Back on the scene

Friday, November 13, 2009: Waves: Huge. Beach erosion: Horrific.



Special duties called me off the Island for a couple days. I had no email access/permission. I was monitoring the storm via various folks close to the action. I got word about Beach Haven’s ravaged beachfront. I know what Holgate will look like at the bird’s nest area. Here’s an example of many emails:



Hey Jay,



I'm wondering if you could post an update on the site (or just respond to me). How are… Continue
