Has anyone been to the tip of Sandy Hook recently and caught fish? If so, what did you catch, when and with what? Last Friday, I didn't get a fish for the first time this year. I tried bunker chunks and various lures (plugs, poppers & metal).

Thanks,

Rob

Exactly where were you? GPS reading will suffice.

Within 12", how far were these fish from shore?

Exactly what time did you catch each fish? You can skip the seconds but at least hour and minutes.

What was the tidal reading at the points when you caught the fish?

Where was the moon? The sun?

What were they feeding on? Species, scientific name, common name, size, and a photo of the bait would be nice.

What were you using? A fly? A plug? A bait, Oh my! May we see the said fly/lure? How close does it resemble the natural? If bait, where did you buy it?

What kind of outfit were you using. Rod? Reel? Line? Leader? Please provide models and serial numbers. And if you would please, provide costs of the gear.

Finally, provide the names, addresses, phone numbers and e-mail for no less than 12 references who witnessed your catches on this miraculous morning.

Thank you. I hope you don't think I am asking for too much.


How's it going 'fly?

Ed

Something's gone horribly awry on this web-site.



Supefly: poundah?! You practicing your New England accent already?

Cranky?!?!? You sissyfly Must be that time of the season or month or whatever

How fast was the retrieve? Did you high-stick on the hookset? I heard you used spearing...did you hook it through the left or right eye first???

There's fluke in those waters, but heard the bASSin has slowed down. Any reports of cow-noses???

I actually love FireLine for tog'n, but gonna give TuffLine XP a try

You should understand us toggers as it should be in your blood...braving the cold, wet, windy winters. Fishing the bow alone while others are cowering around the heater inside the cabin...right, comrade?
