Wasn't from a boat...boardwalk, pier, bulkhead is as specific as I'm willing to get on the internet.

I got some comments on the photo the other day. Its been run through the SuperPhoto app which gives it a nice effect (a nice thing is it also helps blur the background to help prevent spot burning).

My tour was over just as John B and Rui arrived rigged up to chase the stripes. Hope they did well and report back to us all.
Two short fluke and a few sea Robbins. Quite a crowd after dark for this time of year but nothing caught except a handful of small bluefish.

Scared off by the Herminie forecast like everyone else only to wake up to another beautiful crisp morning. Decided to go and do some pre-storm crabbing and bait scouting. I am glad the storm missed us as the potential for it to draw all the bait out of the back bays this time of year literally sucks!

Found a ton of peanut bunker all mixed sizes even after all the fish kills we have had but no signs of mullet in the usual places.

Crabbing was on fire filing a 5 gallon bucket in a few hours while being selective to throw any crabs under 5" back. We had a hard time keeping up with all the hand lines and I rushed over a slimy rock pile that caused me to fall. I scraped my hand up pretty badly which put an end to my day.

Looks like I won't be fishing for a week or two.

John: My hand hurts just looking at yours. Last time we were out, I don't thinks yo noticed my left thumb with the bandages. I had a similar cut, just not on my hand so I had my better half clean it up, bandaged and covered with a clean rubber glove. I cleaned and redressed after each fishing trip. You are young and should heal faster!

Bay:I got in the back today near our playground, on a scouting mission and saw schools of mullet meandering!!!

A couple of cool nights and a small metal lip might warrant a throw

So far so good with no signs of infection. I spent a while painfully cleaning/rinsing it out.

The worst part is that its in an area that constantly moves/bends which will slow the healing process.

Bay is right (again??); clean it, bandage, anti biotic ointment; when we were kids growing up in Ocean Twsp, my Mother always said...go in the ocean; the salt water will clean it out and heal it; so for medical reasons...throw some plugs off the beach; a joke

Tried to wet a line this afternoon, tide ripping, backwash pulling me back in, not a good place to be, plus a bouy in my way I'll wait for the seas to calm down before I go out again.

Nomoco 5PM -8PM Start of incoming tide on the backside: NE wind that increased as the tide marched in, creating choppy surface waves and current. I started out looking for stripes with an eight weight fly rod armed with a chartreuse clouser. Wind made for some fine casting until it increased as the sun was setting. Not fond of chartreuse clouser, as pierced earrings, I took a trip back to the rig and switched to the conventional gear. A few long casts with a white 3/4 ounce banana jig and four inch plastic curly tail grub resulted in a 17 inch flat one. He was much darker then the flats out front and is still swimming.
