Fishing You Just Never Know What You will Catch

You never know what you are going to catch or what you will see while fishing.  In the case of Rob Jones today, it was what you run into five miles off the coast.  One would think maybe a boat or something like that, but not this.  "I thought it was  a little boat way out.   So I started to go towards it to see, as I got closer, I…

Perseid Meteors’ Peak Was A Good Show

A lot of people went to the beach for the show this weekend, and the Perseids did not disappoint.  Hands down this was the best meteor shower I have seen.  The amount and frequency was amazing.  At one point a earthgrazer lit up the beach.  If you took your eyes off the sky for a second you would miss something. The Perseid meteor…

Mid-Atlantic Council and ASMFC Maintain Multi-Year Specifications for Black Sea Bass, Bluefish, and Scup and Modify Summer Flounder Specifications

Hot Doggin For Cats

Our 3-year-old is hooked and can cast a fly rod and tie a mean crane fly. Even the dog can sit patiently on a rock watching for a trout to take a…

43rd Annual White Marlin Open Update

Last day tomorrow (Friday) for the anglers in The White Marlin Open,  Good luck to all the crews and to all that hold a position.  It has been exciting action at the scales for spectators, or at least looks like it on the web cams.  The white marlin in first place still holds at 2.4 million dollars.  That is one serious purse.  No…

Weekend Outlook

Going to be a hot, hot, hot, weekend.   We are expected to get a heat wave along the 95 corridor which will jack up the weekend into the nineties.  We are feeling it today.   The winds are out of the southwest so the flies could be an issue at the beach.  Stray away from objects they can land on to get out of the wind, like groups of…
