Thursday Oct. 25, 2007 -- Drippy, windy -- and royal scare

Thursday, October 25, 2007: Waves: Approaching 8-foot. Water clarity: Still good for the time being. Fishing potential: Fair for North End, poor for much of the beachfront, good in Holgate; rain and drizzle is very problematic. As you know, many folks love this type of fishing weather. Not me. The wind is no biggy but the wetness, even with my rainsuit on, is a royal pain.…
