Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report

Sunday, January 15, 2017: Despite the chill, it was a hot day to walk the outback ... Bog fallout.

Tinkerbell will get well if you clap your hands ... Then again ... 

Sunday, January 15, 2017: Despite the chill, it was a hot day to walk the outback. Came across huge wild canine tracks that were surely a coywolf. I have gotten half a dozen reports of massive “coyotes” in this same region. Those add validity to statewide reports of coyote/wolf mixes issuing forth around the Central and South Jersey. The only other possibility – and far from an impossibility – is a coyote/German Shepherd mix.  

Saw this in Manahawkin Shop-rite's seafood section. Hmmmm.  

And how to make watermelon flavored alligator fillets ... 

BOGGED DOWN: I’ve gotten a load of responses to my ruined bog/wetlands video. Most of it is fiercely critical of off-roaders. Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3s6GQGf8LI&feature=youtu.be

While I’m far less infuriated at average riders that doesn’t mean I’m not duly pissed at the carnage by numbnuts. I want to believe there is some way to weed out the mindless ruiners from the good riders. Many folks aren’t as inclined to find an amicable coexistence in the Pines. And they might be right.

Sent my way by Albert Horner “Jay. I can show you hundreds of areas like the one you just videoed. Please go to my blog www.pinebarrensundersiege.com and you can get just a small taste of what is going on out there. I just spent the day with 15 volunteers blockading a piece of private property in the Whitesbog area that has been destroyed by the off-roaders. Would ask you to support Pinelands Preservation Alliance and the work that Jason Howell is doing with them to expose and, hopefully, stop this carnage of our public lands.

 Mark Deckman problem is no one enforces the laws. I turned this jerk in for dumping fence parts in the woods, took pictures local cops shrugged said "it's only wood". Park police said "not in there area".
Jack ReillyMax Van NessJerryandKim Malangone, and I did two clean ups on Wildlife Management Area only to find out we needed a permit to clean state property. Jack Reilly even used his dumpster to have the stuff hauled off. I put a trail cam up to catch dumpers...camera was stolen.


I need to share this ... and it really isn't being critical of quarrying in the Pines, an accepted historic usage. Simply notice that the Phoenix Pinelands Corp. -- with a fun  motto "You can't buy better sand from nicer people!" is as large as the heart of the nearby town of Warren Grove. Phoenix was founded in 1993, though the quarry is way older. 

By the by, I likely cross a sensitive conservationist line when I admit that the land reclaimed after quarrying is done -- and as demanded by law -- has led to some amazing looking lakes and reforested areas. No, I'm not hyping the concept of arbitrary lake building in the Pines. I'm simply noting that since quarrying is legally allowed anyway -- and that won't change soon -- there is some silver lining to be had, via ultra-deep, turquoise waters you won't see this side of the Caribbean.  

Check out this quarry over near Woodmansie -- near where Rte. 72 passes under the old RR overpass; Woodland Twp. Burlington County.

Abel Automatics, Inc.

Abel Fly Fishing reels and equipment are produced using the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. They've been making the best Freshwater & Saltwater Sport Fishing Reels for over 27 years.

Aspen Reels

Aspen Fly Reels are manufactured by Barrel Service Company, a family owned and operated machine shop located in San Marcos, CA. What started as a one man shop with a manual Axelson lathe is now a contract manufacturer with sixteen CNC lathes, four machining centers, and numerous horizontal and vertical mills. The company employs over forty machinists, operators, and support personnel in a 22,000 square foot facility. A far cry from the early days of 1946...

Avet Reels

All Avet Reels feature components precision machined in the USA from solid 6061-T6 marine grade aluminum, and solid stainless steel stock, with incredible strength and corrosion resistance engineered into their design. 

All Aluminum components are anodized for superior corrosion resistance, as well as beautiful finishes. Avet Reels are designed for easy take-down and maintenance, with no springs or small parts that "go airborne" and disappear during basic disassembly. 

Avet reels are not only built well, they perform. Our over-sized carbon fiber Avedrag Dry Drag System gives Avet Reels something no other lever drag reel has, an ultra smooth and powerful drag system with the ability to free spool at a full drag setting. Eight precision stainless steel ball bearings give Avet Reels incredible smoothness, increased casting distance, and superior free spool.

Fly Logic, Inc.

This little reel, well designed and rugged, yet with a drag adjustment that will protect 7x, continues to make me grin every time I fish it. It has a big, comfortable handle. The drag adjustment is gradual. The knob is big and easy to turn (think about it on a cold morning when fingers refuse to do their duty). The drag itself is a big spring-loaded clutch...


IRT Reels are Made In the U.S.A. IRT’s dedicated production and development teams work with our customers to provide the highest quality customer and product service in the industry today. IRT recommends the reel be sent to our home office in Pine Grove, Pennsylvania for an annual service.


Nautilus Reels

When you visit the Nautilus Reels factory in Miami, you encounter dedication amplified by passion, diligence fueled by tradition, and generations of experience with machinery. At Nautilus Reels, angler innovators will share with enthusiasm their cutting-edge advancements in fly fishing reel design and manufacturing in light of “Tested on Animals™” research and development with fly-targeted species from steelhead in British Columbia to trout in Montana to tarpon not far from the Nautilus camp.


PENN has been designing and manufacturing fishing gear in the US for over 75 years. The resulting skill, knowledge and passion enable us to produce reels that have set records in nearly every IGFA classification. No matter where you fish, or what you fish for, look to PENN to perform flawlessly now and in the future.

Productive Alternatives

P.A.I. is a non-profit agency dedicated to providing diverse human services programming, offering viable workforce opportunities for businesses, and manufacturing and marketing innovative products. 

Ross Reels

We are now one of a few, elite fly fishing companies that engineer, machine, assemble, and service our products under one roof. That’s why for us, Made in the USA is a proud seal, representing the best of what American industry stands for: a dedicated, hard-working group of men and women crafting the best tools available.

Tibor Reel Corporation

Tibor reels are made "by fishermen for fishermen," and the Juracsik family is proud their products are 100% "Made in the USA." With the exception of the ball bearings, every part of every reel is precision machined and hand assembled in their Delray Beach facility.

Funny you should mention the Coyotes....

Was at a German Shepherd Dog Class yesterday mid morning. The class is held outdoors in a township park here in North Central Jersey every Sunday. Yesterday, we had 9 mature GS and their handlers obedience training. My wife trains our dog so yesterday I was in our parked suv waiting and watching her. Out of the corner of my eye I see some movement and here come 2 very large coyotes moving along the creek which parallels the park here in Flemington, NJ. They crossed the creek about 25 yrds from our suv and moved along an old abandoned fence line and disappear like ghosts in the brush and tree line. They were big dogs and not because of their winter coats....they were tall and long. None of the handlers saw them nor did the dogs wind them. I've seen quite a few smaller coyotes here in jersey while out hunting. Our male GS is 9 mos. old and weighs 100 lbs. so I know what a large dog looks like.....I live with one........they are here.
