Tuesday October 30, 07 -- Slow then a late-day blues blast

Tuesday, October 30, 2007: waves: Small. Water clarity: Very good but approaching too clear. Plugging potential: Fair to good; winds are good, especially in the a.m. but that clear water plays the spoiler for swimming and diving plugs; surface splash still has the best chance of fooling the target.

Wait and hurry up. That was the odd…

Oct. 28, 07 -- Something is brewing out there -- tick-tock

Saturday, Oct. 27, 2007 -- Lousy but bassy -- News items

Saturday, October 27, 2007: Waves: heavily chopped 5- to 7-foot waves, combined north and south wind swells; messy but cleaning with late-day offshore winds – which should make tomorrow a lot more workable than today.…

Friday Oct 26, 07: Nasty out there, some bass -- Join Stripers Forever

Friday, October 26, 2007: Waves: Still pretty much out of control; borderline surf fishable at low tide on lee sides of jetties (groins).

Water clarity: Good despite rain and ruckus. Tomorrow looks seriously iffy, weather-wise. However, I think it might be far better fro fishing than today;…

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.…

Wednesday Oct. 24, 07 -- Storms a-comin' -- and a long Fote read

Wednesday, October 24, 2007: Waves: Rapidly building north swell; astronomical conditions (full moon) combining with a weather system that could build into significant trough – accompanied by SCA-plus winds – will create…

Tuesday Oct. 23, 07 -- Windy outside and an equally windy weekly report

Tuesday, October 23, 2007: waves: Building 3 to 5 feet, southerly windswell; very choppy. Water clarity: Good, getting churned fully by 30 mph winds, SE. Plugging potential: fair to poor.

This is a full repeat of late last week. Howling south winds making any type of fishing a tough go – unless you’re with Stu D, on the west point…

Sunday Oct. 21, 07 -- Slow Sunday and striper slower yet

Sunday, October 21, 2007: Waves: Slowly diminishing 2- to 4-foot south swell. Water clarity: Improving from fair to good. Water temps: Uncanny 65 to 67 degrees – and could be getting warmer than that with arriving hot weather.…

Saturday Oct 20, 07 -- Slow but could pickup by tomorrow.

Saturday, October 20, 2007: Waves: Strong 3-5 foot south wind swell. Water clarity: Fair to poor; winds have stirred in some stained water. Water temps: Bay water chilled by the 3 to 4 inches for rain yesterday. Plugging potential: Low; poor water clarity and large breaking waves making it a tough toss, though popper at high…

Friday Oct. 19, 07: overlook today and get ready for tomorrow -- another big weekend?

Friday, October 19, 2007: Waves: 1-3 feet early then building out of the south to 3-4 feet and choppy. Winds: Not a factor this a.m. but really honking by late day before going west to make a great fishing weekend. Heavy rain, street flooding. (Bizarre use ofr street flooding: When I’m sure it’s rainwater I do some serious puddle hits, sending water under the chassis to get the…

Thurs. Oct 18, 07 --- Big bass ae near; strong on weakfish -- Week 2 of fundraiser

Thursday, October 18, 2007: Waves: 2-3 feet out of the south, weak wind swell, light south to north current; Bottom hold: 2 or 3 ounces. Plugging potential: High this morning with light winds but dropping to moderate as SE winds increase. Preferred plugs: Poppers giving way to shallow swimmers (swum slowly) for those wanting to target the very few stripers out there; slow helps avoid the blues (sometimes). Water temps: Ranging from 63 to…

Oct. 16. 2007 -- a week's worth of wildness

Gonzo Blitzes and Brake Huggers

BRAKE HUGGER: So I’m driving along the Boulevard on my way to Holgate, keyed up for angling action, per usual. I get through Beach Haven and find myself tucked behind a larger sedan, one of those fairly upper-end retireemobiles. The silver-haired gal…

Monday Oct. 15, 07 -- Non-Blue Monday -- Blitz aftermath

Monday, October 15, 2007: Waves: 2 feet out of the east. Water clarity: Excellent.

By all appearances, we’re having that day of unwanted rest. The buggies are hanging around like gulls waiting for something tasty to drop in. There huge attention being given to high tide just dropping.…
