Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report

Sunday, December 07, 2014: In case you hadn’t guessed, there’s no fishing today; at least no sensible fishing. In fact, you can’t even write “fishing” in the sand. By the time you get to “g” the “f” has already been blown smooth. The north winds are honkin’ gale-force. You can add to that a very large and powerful northerly swell, pushing 6- to 8-foot-plus. That swell is pure north, sweeping a lot of beach sand along for a ride southward. The current is pushing four knots, north-to-south. The only upside is the quick recovery of any beach erosion from a northerly wind and swell.

Ocean water is highly discolored.

The next few days looks no rosier than the present gale. Another gale warning is already posted for Tuesday. More rain on the way.

From Wednesday through next weekend, we could see a stretch of west wind and rapidly diminishing seas. Still, we have to get through some real sky theatrics, with other nearby areas (north Jersey) faring a lot worse than us, with icy sh … shtuff.

 Deer drive ... 

The arriving system is hideous news for shotgun deer hunting. Actually, I guess it’s not hideous news for the deer. The wind and tough communications can make it dangerous for deer drives, those coordinated multi-hunter tactics whereby deer are spooked, some might say herded, into the shooting range of awaiting hunters. Hey, culling is culling and the NJ deer biomass needs to be seriously trimmed down, for the health of the overall ecosystem.

I’ve gotten two emails from gals asking bout GoPros for their outdoorsman hubby. I obviously tout GoPros but do have to point out that they now pretty much come alone in a box – with very few added accessories, short of the case. Huge: It DOES NOT come with a memory card. The card must be bought separately and given with the GoPro gift or the fun of trying it on Christmas day goes out the window. There are many extras that are close to necessities. And many other accessories simply rock in a fun way. Battery chargers and extra battery packs are vital. Make sure to recognize that GoPros are not zoom cameras. Distance shooting is not one of their strong points. Ruggedness is. Best bet is to check out any number of YouTube videos on GoPro buying. 

The following two vids are a bit older but are very informative. Don't let the second one scare you. That many accessories were long in the gathering. In fact, the second vid is for even advanced GoPro users.

I had one inquiry about a drone choice as a gift. That's a real tough question. 

I'll first make the somewhat odd suggestion that you first make sure you’re into droning before you go all four-figure crazy. A couple of my favorite lookers are 1) the  $1,100 DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter with FPV HD Video Camera and 3-Axis Gimbal; 2) $800 Walkera QR X350 PRO GPS RC Quadcopter Drone FPV Devo F7 G-2D Gimbal Camera.

But you gotta want it bad to go wallet diving like that.

If you have any doubts about your future in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), you can do some (non or low camera) sky-time and maneuver training for $100 or less. I kid you not. There are now a slew of entry-level UAVs to try your hand at the burgeoning sport. I like to call it a mere sport because paranoid folks might then resist going all regulatory on it. By the by, draconian restrictions on UAVs is a ways off, though usages that invade privacy are already being enacted. We would be using it for nature looking and other fully acceptable usages … right?  

Two cheapies-but-goodies are Nano QX RTF and the Hubsan H107L X4 Mini.

A wild personal favorite for me is the $99 Parrot MiniDrone Rolling Spider. You have to check this out at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7Q1giJOpxA. It's mainly to check out flying skills.
