Wednesday, November 26, 2014: I caught some minor heat recently for essentially telling it like it is – or as it is if you’re one of those grammatically-retentive types

Noon: Reports of a long thunder-like rumble. I felt it more than heard it here in Surf City. Lasted longer than normal thunder. Weird.

Saturday, November 22, 2014: I did the long hike onto the back mudflats of Holgate. It’s pushing a slid mile of mud slogging to reach there. It’s a mysterious place where wild horses ridden by naked ladies frolic freely. Hey, it was cold and actually kinda boring slogging along out…

Friday, November 21, 2014: Remarkable blowout tide today, as fully expected. Dumb-ass gulls

" ... Bear!!!!!!" 

Friday, November 21, 2014: Remarkable blowout tide today, as fully expected. Dumb-ass gulls had a heyday downing bay scallops, trapped high-and-dry at low tide. The return of bay scallops continues, though there doesn't seem to be an explosion of them…

Tuesday, November 18, 2014: These coldly cruel winds wasted no time browning the ocean.

(Every now and once-in-awhile, I have to beg forgiveness for the typos that sneak in here, as I rapidly-plus try to get these blogs out and about. I assure you that 99.9 percent of my mistakes are truly grammatical overlooks. I’m actually well-taught when it…

Friday, November 14, 2014: Yes, I saw the big snowflakes flying at midnight. I wasn’t impressed (above). I was depressed with the serious chill in the air as I tried to plug this a.m. I realize it’s not that cold but I was fishing in short sleeves a couple days ago.…

P.M. update Caught six bass in short order. Corn cobs. Wednesday, November 12, 2014: Always grab those striper otoliths.

6 p.m. Update

Lo and check it out, I got me six bass today. Oh, they weren't none too large, nowhere  near being eligible for prizes, but it felt good tussling with a tassel of schoolies.

I did all my hookin' in Holgate, with four of the fish coming out of the back cut -- a place where I have found small stripers in falls past. Also missed four hits today in the same…
