Default Tropical Storm / Hurricane Sandy

This will be our little sandbox to talk about the impending Storm of the Century/overhyped media event that is Hurricane Sandy. Has anyone here been following it? Has anyone altered plans for the coming week because of it? Anyone gone out and loaded up on eggs, milk and beer in anticipation of the end of the world?

Since I think I'm supposed to ask a question: hey Frank, are you planning on fishing next Monday?

Joe the administrator, I have to ask: ARE YOU DUMB? I mean to say with so many posts about who responds first, namely Frank (see protocols and threads) with your 8,000 plus posts, ARE YOU A Half-wit?

If you are let me be excused myself now but I think you are dumb.

Merlin. I made a mistake and responded before Frank, for some reason while looking at new posts and not paying attentiion and this is how you respond to my post by name calling....

I deleted my post due to a mistake Made but will not delete yours above.

Sorry Chris and Frank, did not notice I was in Franks forum.

No, I think the hurricane will both decline because of our northern cold and follow the path to the east. I usually enjoy intimacy on Monday but I haven't decided what I am going to do the other 23 hours and 50 minutes.

I've been following it a lot, since it will mess up some of my plans.

Current Euro model has it slamming into our area, NJ, with impact all the way up to NE.

There is talk of it being the worst since 1900.

Of course, "gentlemen, start your engines" may the hype begin

They are saying once she hits the cold front New Jersey could get a noreaster/blizzard.

Frank, with respect to this type of storm, at this type of year: in your experience does this represent an opportunity for surf casters at certain locations (say with a strong NE wind)?

Among other I check this site and make my call.. The surfer in me wants this stuff.....
the water is still pretty warm but not warm enough , I thinkth, to promote any growth for the "Storm of the Century"

One hurrucane in twenty you will have fishing to tell your grandkids about, and we have seen that; four in twenty your grand kids will be able to say "that is the storm that killed grandpa." A person who knows water, knows where to hide to kick major striper butt, would have the only fish on the floor at Fulton. But that is for you young bucks. My storm site is Club Cafe in Manville, RI where they have an all-weather stripper. She calls it "riding out the storm."

Haha.

I did "hurricanes" twice at the canal - the Nov 07 one and the Sep '10 one. Both were mostly rain with some wind. I think I got a couple schoolies in 07 and a big skunk in 2010. The crazy part was it was the only time I have seen the canal completely devoid of boats. I remember right before Earl hit thinking the place was creepy with no boats and not a single ripple on the water's surface. The most dangerous part of those trips was the drive along Rt. 3 with some trees down across the road.

Maybe tomorrow, when I am sober, I will put up an excerpt from my first book, chapter called "Hurricane", where we catch more bass and blues than we can carry for sale on an empty Fulton Street floor. Big bucks. Dream stuff for money guys. ( who knows, might sell a book for the further puffin of my estate.)

Fished many Noreasters in Jersey, and the beginning of a hurricane a few times. Sure the fishing is good, as it's approaching, and as it hits. But is a fish really worth the abuse? Been there, done that, I think I will pass...

Joe's a full-wit.
We met once, years ago, just off the NYS Thruway.....had all his wits with him.
Left with a custom wrapped rod for Riverfisher fund...How is he?

We were hammered last year with weather like what is forecasted, not fun. No time for the fishes, protect the homestead.
