August 31, 2007 -- blues aplenty -- and plenty more

Friday, August 31, 2007: Waves: Building 2-3 foot easterly ground swell; smaller northerly wind swell. Water clarity: Very good. Water temps: Mid-70s, highest yesterday was 77.

Don’t you just hate time warps?

The cosmos does a belch and just like that the time period between Memorial Day and Labor Day, which is supposed to run something like 14 weeks, is over in just under a couple weeks.

Sure, to the untrained eye it looks like we had a full summer, based on inaccurate measuring tools like clocks, calendars and…

Wednesday August 29 -- Done my busy business and ready to write-up the fall

Wednesday, August 29, 2007: Waves: 1-3 feet out of the north. Water clarity: Excellent.

Monday Aug. 27, 2007: Slow but trying to unslow

Monday, August 27, 2007: Waves: 2-4 foot swell, generally easterly but touch of north windswell. Water clarity: Good.

The fishing has been very much to the liking of the Slowskys, those tortoises that work for Comcast -- and like everything comatose or slower. Our angling slowness harkens back to the after-age of the long storm of last week.…

Saturday update: Dangerous fog and heroic effort

Saturday update: Early Afternoon. The combining of scalding hot air and a cool ocean created some very trying times for boats that zipped out early today then ran into water-top fog so thick at least one boat ran aground on LBI. Fortunately, most boat anglers started out the inlets, saw the zero visibility ahead and discretely headed back in. later inn the day much…

August 25, 2007 -- Still sassy out there -- more fluke lady stuff

Saturday, August 25, 2007

Waves: Very persistent wave action via a 4-foot (larger sets) easterly long-period ground swell. Yesterday was honking out there , wave-wise. I was doing volleyball on the beach in Harvey Cedars and the combination of large swell, days of onshore winds and astronomical conditions had set waves…

Friday, August 24, 2007: Waves: Still very sizeable. Water clarity: fair. Winds: Around to the south – where they’ll stay parked for the entire weekend.

Special: World Record Fluke Blog -- This may be added to should emails come in

Special World Record Fluke Blog-about:

In the face of a potential world-record fluke, the opinion mill is spitting out splinters left and right. I did an internal debate on whether or not I should let my sites even go there.

I soon decided to let…

Duct Dollars, Worldly Fluke and Big Busts

IF IT WALKS LIKE A DUCT: Garett Croft Stenson, an Oregon native, is one of those annoying people who doesn’t just think up creative moneymaking concepts but actually follows through with them -- unlike folks like myself, who come up with…

Sunday Aug. 19, 2007: Weather was no friend this weekend

Sunday, August 19, 2007: Waves: 2-3 feet out of the south. Water temps: 70. Water clarity: fair but not where it should be; very dirty stretches.

Wind played the spoiler yesterday. Morning gusts to 25 had many folks hanging close to port.…

Saturday Aug. 18, 2007 -- Coolish front and blasts from the blue

Saturday, August 18, 2007: Waves: Small groundswell out of the south is holding at 2-3 feet; still not sure where those waves are coming from but it’s the first far-south wave action of the summer.

(Above: It’s as weird and foreboding a creature as I’ve ever dug outside the tropics. This three-inch long caterpillar/larvae-like monsters was just under the ground in Bass…

Thursday August 16, 2007 -- Weakies per jigging;Chum change

Thursday, August 16, 2007: Waves: Small. Water clarity: Very good.

The winds are still in the picture, as they may continue to be, as a moderate push of cool northerly air moves in. However, it should be fishable to highly fishable through the weekend providing you time the trips to lower winds periods. T-storms loom large – and…

Wednesda Aug. 15 2007 -- Winds and what-not

Wednesday, August 15, 2007: Waves: Small. Water clarity: Very good (though honking south winds later today could stir things up). Water temps: Bayside: Upper 70s (actually a bit cool). Ocean: Mid-70s – and could drop with upwelling from south winds.

Thanks to H.H. (Scranton/BHW) for dropping off immaculately filleted and trimmed bluefish meat for my jerkying. He and his boat…

Tuesday Aug 14, 07 -- Weakfishing rules, blues follow

RUNDOWN:The weakfishing in west Barnegat Bay is semi-sizzling. There is that know-how knack needed to pull sparklers out at a rapid-fire rate but the odds are in the favor of anyone dropping lots of chum over. And the chum-line doesn’t have to be only grasshrimp. Some crushed shedders mixed with clam or mussels can achieve a nice attraction level.

Here’s a pro report from…

Friday August 10, 07 -- Hyper-hot and Rachael Rae to LBI

Friday, August 10, 2007: WAVES: Choppy 2-4 feet out of the south. Water clarity: Fair but getting cleaner; that could change back to poor if the winds blow too hard from the south.

Weakfishing decent at BI. Some stripers in the nix; North End and along the beachfront; mainly clam eaters. Weather is very unpredictable, looks almost tropical…
