It’s Thursday and since we don’t have fishing information to share… Let’s throw it back to the early days on LBI with a picinic at the Point. Here is a photo of a family enjoying the beaches of Long Beach Island taking a lunch break while fishing Holgate. Check out that vintage Ford Model A Roadster (’28/’29) with the ballon tires and all. It must have owned the beach! LBI offers offordable family so come on down and live the SaltLife” surf fishing.
There’s high water, whipping winds and large surf from this serious storm. The gale has blown up the waves currently at 18′ on the Barnegat Light Ocean Buoy. Forecasts expect the seas to build throughout the rest of the day with winds gusting up to 60kts. Let’s hope our beaches hold up to the brutal pounding.
Save The Date – Saturday February 18, 2017 8:30am-4:30pm Location: Brookdale Community College… “A Day Dedicated To The Surfcaster” featuring great seminars and awesome vendors. This year marks Surf Day’s 10th Anniversary. Every year it’s a phenomenal show but this year is going to be very special. Don’t miss out!
This is the post excerpt.
While the calendar tells us we are in the thick of January it sure does not feel like it. What should be a big snow event looks to be a late fall like nor’easter.
On the fishing front, there are boats fishing out of the central Jersey coast targeting and catching blackfish. Paul Haertel was out recently and had a very slow day. However, he got a nice nine pounder to make the cold trip worth it.
While not local information it’s a point of interest for many anglers that travel south for big game. We got heads up from store alumni Sam, currently an OBX resident. “Some big are showing up! Some boats found them and hung a few big ones.” Let’s hope this is only the casting call for the prime time March Madness.
This is our very first post on the new blog platform. Hope you like it. We should have made the upgrade years ago… better late than never!
