We have a strong south wind coming this weekend. Those southerlies should kick up the surf fishing -- for a short stint. Then comes the problem winds for boat anglers, who have been absolutely crushing it on bass and blues. Not only will the south winds be blowing gale by tomorrow night but the follow-up west winds will carry in some cold nights, possible subfreezing air temps on the Island. There will also be near-extreme blowout tide, a combination of fierce offshore winds, astronomically driven tide swings and our steadily shallowing bay.

Call them up this morning in the inlet Barnegat light New Jersey


I always add that bay shallowing since tides can go radically low due to the eutrophication, i.e. the filling in of the bay, from the bottom upward.

I believe the current bay killer to reflect something called cultural eutrophication. No, not "culture" like societal activity. It's the culturing of algae from excessive nutrients, via runoff. Such unnatural nutrification leads to algal blooms, which depletes the water of oxygen in the short term, and also fosters an unnaturally rapid build-up of bottom sediment, as the algae dies off and settles to the bottom.

Back to fishing. I've chatted with a couple more folks tapping the darkness for small stripers, using plugs. I'll be going out tonight for a few SB casts.  

I stopped by the trestle bridge onto LBI (Hochstrasser) to see if it'll be fishable. Not lookin' good at all. See for yourself in the video below. Not only is the railing very high but there's also this big-ass beam in the adjacent to the bridge. Maybe it's coming out as work progresses. 


I took these photos of small sand rivulets at the replen area. They're kinda weird. 

Epic morning slaying fish!! Double digit fish up to 37 lbs.. Thanks @rcjohnson413


Great day to be a fisherman and a lucky day to be a bass! Rope fishing all morning with plugs and bunks! Multiple Bluefish between 18-20 pounds and the Bass fishing was something else. Picked up a 38# big girl early then it broke loose to all out Striper mayhem. The bass finally got their shot at bait over the blues and it was game on!!! Everycast multiple hookups. You know it's a good day when you catch on 10 different plugs, all fish released! Back at it in the AM





DEP MOBILE APP LAUNCHED FOR REPORTING NON-EMERGENCY ENV. INCIDENTS DEPbarnegatbay@listserv.state.nj.us                                                                                                                                                                                       

DEP LAUNCHES PILOT MOBILE APPLICATION FOR REPORTING OF                                                                                                                                      
NON-EMERGENCY ENVIRONMENTAL INCIDENTS                                                                                                                                         

The Department of Environmental Protection has launched a pilot mobile application that will enhance protection of public health and the environment by enabling the public to use smartphones and other mobile devices to conveniently report non-emergency environmental incidents, Commissioner Bob Martin announced today.                                         

The pilot WARN NJDEP mobile app complements the DEP's telephone hotline, 877-WARNDEP, which has been in operation for many years. The app can be downloaded through Google Play, the Apple app store and the Microsoft app store. Enter WARN NJDEP in the search bar. You may also access the Google Play download by clicking the WARN NJDEP logo on this news release.                                                                                                                                                                         

The pilot app is not intended to report life-threatening and/or environmental emergencies. These should be reported by calling 9-1-1, local police or the DEP's hotline. Also, the app shall NOT be utilized by regulated entities, as an acceptable method for fulfilling notification requirements to the DEP.                                                               

The pilot app utilizes GPS technology for pinpoint location of environmental incidents and also allows users to submit photos as part of their reports to the DEP. 

"This new service reflects the Christie Administration's commitment to engaging the public as partners in strong environmental protection," Commissioner Martin said. "The application utilizes the latest technology to enhance protection of the environment by making it convenient for people to report incidents that can negatively impact our communities."                                                                                                                                                                                                              

The types of non-emergency incidents that may be reported through the pilot application include improper storage or disposal of waste and other materials, odor complaints, sewage leaks, smoke and dust complaints, underground storage tank incidents, and wetlands or stream encroachment issues.                                                            

The DEP's Communications Center receives tens of thousands of calls annually, on a wide range of incidents, from nuisance wildlife complaints and wildfires to hazardous material releases. The center works to assign cases within the DEP, as well as assigning cases to appropriate county and local agencies.                                                                             

"This application gives the public a direct portal into reporting incidents in their communities and neighborhoods, effectively giving us more eyes on the ground, while helping us to assign cases to the appropriate response agencies more efficiently," said Bob Van Fossen, DEP's Emergency Management Director.                                                    

The pilot application allows user to provide essential information on the type of environmental incident, the date and time of the incident, whether it is ongoing, and a brief description of what happened.                                                                                                                                                                                   

Users may provide their contact information, although they may choose to report incidents anonymously, as has been the case for years through the DEP hotline number system.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

The app provides a one-touch link allowing the user to call the DEP's Communications Center and directly speak to a dispatcher, if that is the user's preference.

The WARN NJDEP mobile application was developed in partnership with the New Jersey Information Division of NICUSA, Inc., a national leader in information technology development for government agencies. NIC-related companies work with more than 3,500 federal, state and local government agencies.
