Wednesday, October 03, 2007: Waves: Swells still largish and powerful; surf has held the surfcasting down, light fishing pressure today. Water clarity: Good but the jellyfish mucous has returned on many beaches, especially south end.
I’ll begin with the stories of bass on the north end. Fish to 35 inches have made the scales and other…Continue

Saturday, September 29, 2007: Waves: 1-2 feet out of the east. Water clarity: Good but with some weedy and off-color patches. Water temps: Holding in the mid-60s; should be dropping fairly rapidly with this cold snap; this time of year water temps are very ambient, meaning they adjust with air temps more than solar heating, which is the primary influence during the summer when daylight is at a peak.…Continue

Thursday, September 27, 2007: Waves: 2 to 2.5 feet out of the south; no swells yet from large low pressure in the ocean off SE U.S. Water clarity: The hard south winds have churned the water adjacent to the beaches but not far out. Mid-Island, there is a 50-yard swath of brownish water with clean water not far off. I have seen water like this make surf casting very interesting as blues…Continue

(Above: This Mercedes buggy is just too hot for the beach. It went to ablazin' at noon today in Surf City. I had first seen it as some gray smoke was coming from under the hood. By the time I alerted my photogs (Ryan Morrill took this picture), the SUV had taken a turn for the hotter. The SCFD used foam to end the fire but not before it burnt nearby signs, fences and bushes.)…Continue
