Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report


Sunday, August 28, 2011: BH and Holgate Update

Beach Haven report: Talking with George G., he (with great relief) described the damage to the Queen City as, “Not bad at all. There was some washover on a few streets.”

According to Kurt H., those streets were toward the south end of town, where he saw (at 7 a.m.) the ocean water coming over the dunes and down the streets, pushing sudsy saltwater down to the Boulevard. Kurt also felt the damage was bare minimum, adding that he is among those who can’t figure why the storm didn’t wreak more havoc. “It was mainly a hit to the beaches,” he told me.

Not faring as well was the entrance onto Holgate. Chunks of olden concrete, placed decades back, got deposited up high, where we drive the beach just after coming on. The Forsythe fencing with the informational material was lost. George seems to think the entrance can be fixed once some sand reforms nearby – offering a much needed source of material to push over the debris. Per visual inspection, Holgate once again bent but didn’t break. I do have to wonder if this Thursday’s scheduled opening of the South End will be doable. I sure need it.

Any word on how boats in marinas - specifically Holgate Marina - made out?

I'm trying to get down that way. Waiting for fuel spill to be cleaned up. Heard of no major marina problems, north and central LBI.
