April 28 09 -- Weekly workout

BEAR! CAR! WHAT DAY I’M HAVING: Talk about a really tough hike in the park. A six-month-pregnant Ashley Swendsen, 26, was taking one of those breathingly brisk exercise ambles common to new age moms. She figured the clean Colorado Springs, Colorado, air would offer an ideal aura and atmosphere to foster her ongoing organically inclined pregnancy. Fat chance.

As she speedily hiked a narrow trail, she developed this nagging sense she was being stalked. As behind-her noises got closer, she… Continue

Sci-fi Nights and Bad Boys Busted



LET THERE BE NIGHT: This E-question reached me last week. “I found my dad’s old Coleman lanterns … and got this urge to night fish the way he did. I know there’s quite a history that goes along with ‘lantern fishing.’ … Do many fishermen still fish after dark? How about yourself? Any tricks?”

The popularity of night fishing, much like night itself, comes and goes. In times too far back to remember… Continue

Friday, April 17, 2009:

Well, spring was bustin’ out like a banshee today. I had work in the Pines so I felt the full blast of mild south wind that kicked in mid-afternoon. Then coming back to the Island, I realized there was some other bustin’ out taking place. As I was at the top of the Big Bridge I took my usual read of the waters of Manahawkin Bay and got a goodly surprise. A very large splashing could be easily seen on the surface about 100 yards from the bridge. I thought it might… Continue

April 15, 09 -- Mittens and Tourneys

MITTENED MARAUDERS: The N.J. Division of Fish and Wildlife (often erroneously referred to as “Fish and Game”) wants us to keep an eye open for mittens. No, not hand-warming type accouterments, but the invasive mitten crab, which has worked its way all the way to Ocean County from Asia, which is located somewhere in the Far East.

“How could these crabs get all the way over here from China?” you ask in geographic astonishment.

Well, let’s examine the random goodies your better half just… Continue

Marine Protection Area

Could Be Coming







MPA FOR FORSYTHE?: There’s a bit of a stir (and sweat) over the nomination of the Edwin By Forsythe Wildlife Refuge to become part of the federal Marine Protection Area system.

So what is a Marine Protection Area (MPA), you, Mr. Angler, ask -- beginning to stir and sweat a bit?

Well, I’m generally a fast learn, meaning I usually get things pretty quickly. Not here. I’ve been intensely exploring the National Marine… Continue

Sunday April 5, 09 -- Bass showing along beach, Graveling

Sunday, April 05, 2009:

Wind has laid down some, though still a factor this a.m. The bassing is moving in including Graveling, which has had spurts – and a goodly amount of fishing pressure. The keepers are there, with some up river –a long with plenty of shorts. A.M. was catching them on plugs for the last couple days at his ‘secret” bank up the river. “I had fish hitting and swirling for a solid hour then things just turned off. It was still some of the best spring fishing I ever had… Continue

True Believers, 10K Gold Largemouth and Reef Rally







A FOOT IN THE GRAVE: A while back, I wrote a column segment about Big Foot and his family of Big Foots. I got loads of responses, mainly supporting the just-maybe side of things, i.e. folks who won’t discount the possibility that the oddest of hairy mossy plodding near-hominid things are making those proverbial bumps in the forest night. My kinda people, those who believe in such fabulous and mystical maybes.

Oddly,… Continue
