08.16.17 Plenty of peanuts in the back......
     While Erin and I were looking for crabs at almost dead low tide i guy kind of hurriedly and all-business started to walk the wall. I asked him if he was throwing for snappers and I was surprised when he said, "Peanuts". He was eagle eyed and I watched ...

08.17.13 Hard to find the water during this quick outing......
     School and work, and sometimes family (kidding!) can really screw up ones fishing. I didn't say mine, I said ones. So can a dead low at 533am. Got down to the water at 5 am before work and gave it one hour. Couldn't really find the water and the fishy ...

     There's definitely some interest out there with Fish-Skull's newer line of poppers. It's taking of in fresh and salt waters. I put an order in and received it today while in the depths of the dreaded final exam. I had no time to play but enough time to...

08.06-07.17 Two slow days on the beach......
       Spent yesterday exploring an old haunt. Haven't been here in some time and it felt good to have a different view and different rocks to navigate. Didn't turn a fish and spent most of my time with a variety of poppers that didn't move a fish. I haven'...

08.03.17 Remembering Roseld from a few years ago......
     Those were the days. Post Sandy and before beach replenishment. It's going to take a long time for  it to return to the way things were, if it ever does. The best part of this place was being there alone many, many times, or just with a few friends and...
