Hi Guys --
Native New Jerseyian surfcaster looking to escape unbearable Jersey summer and hunt striped bass in your beautiful State.
Any info (good & bad) that you can provide on conditions at Popham Beach in July (week of 21st)would be appreciated.
One main question is access... is the park open for night fishing? Are fishermen "limited" to a small area due to designated swimming beaches?
Is there a "better" current... incoming or outgoing?
I fish artificials w/ spinning tackle... is this a deep water, fast current jig spot or a shallow water plug spot or a little bit of both?
Is the Bath Holiday Inn a decent place or a dump?
Any place local where you can get good fried clams (whole belly, please)and a decent lobster roll?
ps. It's still winter down here, too. Sunny today, but 4-6" of snow on the way.
