    First trip out front. OC. Got to the beach at 6am with my 5 year old and encountered sporty conditions throughout the morning. Only saw two other guys out in the AM on quite a large stretch of beach. We were expecting rats but were rewarded. Got a 44” fish and a short! Both on clam. Spent time plugging but no takers. The wind and sweep made it tough for my little guy who’s obsessed with casting plugs all on his own now.

    Non-fisherperson: "Wait...you fish in the middle of the night for hours, get very little sleep, swim to rocks in a wetsuit or stand waste deep in waders and you DONT keep any of the fish?!?!?!" Me: Yep.

    Moved a bit further to the south this morning but didn't go so far as to cross the border. Ocean has flatted a bit from yesterday but still very nice conditions. Was able to break the ice this today getting the first fish of the spring. Pulled in 4 with one that made 26 inches. The others were really small and was getting a lot of other bumps from the little guys moving around. It was quite a dolphin show most of the morning with a number of them in close at sunrise. Great color out there today too.

    I have a drainage pond of a few acres on private property behind my building in Morris County Has a healthy lmb & panfish population and employees fish all catch and release Its posted no fishing private property cleary but occasionally a google fisherman finds it and I see them fishing, mostly weekends and afterhours. They have all been catch and release and I let it go. Last year a crew with buckets and a van showed up and started cleaning the place out; dozens of bass, crappie etc. i asked them to leave - they cursed me out. I then had them arrested for trespassing and theft

    Coulda done without that

    I had to he at the hospital at 6:30 this morning for the ablation procedure which hopefully will keep my ticker in rhythm..... and hopefully is the last procedure I have to get done for a long time because I’m tired of this crap. I check in, cute nurse gives the boys a shave and everything is cruising along.....till the poor dude in the bed on the other side of the curtain from me flat lined. Holy sheet.... code blue, need a crash cart stat, clear him for the paddles.... everybody clear .... silence .... hit him again, Gotta give em credit, they saved him and saved him quickly and calmly. I was pretty stressed going into this thing.... after listening to that I was beyond stressed, not to mention that emergency pushed my stuff back an hour and gave me plenty of time to quietly lose my mind. Everything went as planned and they released me at 3:30, I’m home and feeling decent. Many thanks to all who have pulled for me throughout this crap... myself and my family appreciate it.

    This was a proud moment. She grabbed her bag of beef jerky, a water bottle, her boots and off we went. About a mile hike into the woods. I told her to leave the barbie rod behind. But noooooooooo. I was whacking the **** out of them. Nearly every cast. I couldnt cast my line without catching one. Here, do you wanna reel it in? No. She was hell bent. And about an hour into the trip she did it. As proud as she could be. Then I gave her the spinning rod and she got some good practice with it. A couple swings and misses but she was getting it out there.

    Decide to join the crowds this afternoon with a few Friends. We had a great time pulling on bluefish for hours. Biggest was about 15 pounds. Left them biting. It still amazes me how the world melts away when the fish are biting what a great release from the world Thank you Lord for a beautiful afternoon. Eeeeels......

    They were hitting weird the other night, so stuffed with bunker they were just slamming the side of their face into the plug and thrashing around on top like bluefish. Caught one that had two bunker tails sticking out of it's throat. Bro got one so I'm done until they move into the rivers and I can fish with sneakers again.

    Just to chime in about the Conservation Officers. I ran into one at WAWA this week and he held the door open for me. I said to him "Man we could have used you this weekend where I was". He mentioned that he was in the area close to where I was and busted guys with over 150 shorts in one night. Also gave me his card and personal cell number to text when I am out there if I see anything. He asked me to send him a pin of where I saw all the "overs" being poached last weekend and said he will be there this weekend.

    Best start for me in a long time. 5 trips and 52 bass. They are strong, fat and good size. 24" to 40". Every trip I've got at least one over 20lbs. All on plugs that swim slowly on top, no poppers. MOCO way back. Mostly at night and some sunset fish, but the bigger fish were in the dark. 1 fish kept.

    Last night MoCo Out back 7:15 PM to 2:00 AM I walked out on the jetty and the water was flat calm with just some ripples from the South West wind. The water was pretty clear and I could see occasional signs of some bunker swimming around. The sky was cloudy so I didn't need to worry about the moonlight from the full moon. I started out with the Hydro Minnow but the water was so still that I didn't feel like I was getting the action that I wanted at the speed that I wanted. ( Slow ..) So I switched over to the loaded 5 inch Redfin. I could feel it pushing water and wiggling through my rod tip much better but it just didn't get any attention from the fish. It was fully dark now and the tide came up so I switched to a 6 inch black Sluggo on a tin squid. After about 10 minutes my phone started ringing in my back pocket just after I casted my lure out. I didn't want to stop reeling cause I didn't want to snag my lure, so I started burning in my lure so I could answer the phone. Halfway in Bam.. Fish on. It took a few short runs and put up a good fight. few minutes later I leadered up a nice 26 inch Striper. I guess that rule for reeling extra slow at night doesn't always work. I tried varying the retrieve speed fast and slow after that but no luck. After a while the sluggo fell off, so I switched to the Red/White Mag Darter. Shortly after putting on the Mag darter I started getting hits, I actually got hits on three consecutive cast, but they kept coming unbuttoned. Time to sharpen the hooks ... A few minutes later I had a solid hookup on a nicer fish. It took some nice runs and then I leadered up a 27 inch Striper.. That Striper tangled up my rig pretty good so I had to cut and re-tie. As I was tying on my leader, the wind took a 180 and switched from a moderate Sw breeze to a 25 to 35 Kt North East wind as a front blew in. The rocks that I had been standing on were quickly being covered with wated from the chop that got kicked up.... I tried to fish with some deeper running lures but I couldn't fish with 35 Kt wind in my face. So I packup up my stuff and headed for the car. As I was packing up the car, I noticed that the wind had died down considerably. I walked back out to the jetty to give it a try. The water was a little rough after the front came by and I went through a rotation of lures hoping that the bite would pick back up... I was well over an hour since the last fish when I got another bite. Another 26 incher.. I snapped on the mullet Mag darter and had pretty consistant action for a while. Most fish around 26 or 27 inches but a few were smaller. As I continued to cast, something crushed my lure and my drag screamed .. for about 5 seconds... and then slack.. That one hurt ... the bite continued for most of the outgoing tide when I realized that it was 2 AM ... Its an hours drive and I have to get up for work .... Total for the night 9 Stripers landed with at least as many missed bites or lost ...

    Even more sad are those that will continue to push for masks, lockdowns and taking away peoples freedoms until we hit 100% vaccination and require people to show proof of vaccination in order to live their lives.

    Haven’t posted yet this year because caught nothing worthy until tonight...Fished out back in lower OC from 6:30-8. Finally caught my first keeper ever after fishing for 3 years... 29 1/2” caught on a white Keitech on 1/2 oz jig head on 7-6” Carbon Shield II. I knew it was big after it started pulling drag... it’s nice to finally get the monkey off my back. To add to it, I also pulled a 21-22” weakfish also. Biggest one I’ve seen caught in person. They both went back in the water even though the weakfish was probably better eating. Best fishing outing for me.

    I just solved the whole systemic racism thing

    It was so simple, right there all along. This will save the nation BILLIONS annually...it will do away with the cries of systemic racism...once and for all it will be over and done with...the burn, loot murder folks can all go home now. All we gotta do is make all inner city cops black That’s it, problem solved. No more racism when a black punk tries to overpower a cop and gets shot - because the cop will also be black - and that magically make it not racist. CNN won’t like the idea, but I think it’s got real promise. It won’t be racist towards all the white cops that will lose their jobs because they are white and we know that doesn’t exist. Problem solved, right? An extras dozen black felons will survive to be shot by other felons instead of the racist white cops hunting them down. It’s a good plan, right? You are welcome

    Kindest thing a stranger has done for you?

    Twenty five years ago at a Florida Macaroni Grill restaurant we had a tough time with our three small children during dinner. Between feeding them, diaper changes, all the crying and moaning, we felt bad for all the diners around us. As the older couple seated next to us left, they gave us a nod of approval and encouragement. When it was time for the check we were told the couple that had just left paid for our entire meal. Now my wife and I are that older couple, and we will pay that kind gesture forward when we get the opportunity.

    Ended up not wetting a line last night due to daughter drama and just watched folks not catch anything out back. Anyway, tried the first AM outing today out front. Pre-dawn 1hr SoMoCo. End of incoming into the flip. Light E wind. Plenty of clean white water, nice juicy conditions, overcast and later misty. Managed 1 22” skinny schoolie on a bass assassin. Gonna try for the dusk bite later if no more drama.

    Hit the gym this morning about 1130. Brought my rod and my waders for a post gym pass by as i often do. Saw it was pretty flat. Suited up and went in. Glad i did. One of the most epic bites ive experienced in years. Every 1 to 2 casts. Gators. Lost count. Prolly 15 to 20 fish total. All ranged between 10 to 17lbs. Just awesome. White yozuri popper. Made a ruckus when i reeled it in. Big twitches moving water with some slight pauses. It made them nuts. beautiful strikes..Bonus of it all, no crowds. Just a few of us. Everybody gettin along haven a blast. Purposely avoided the "hot zones" and it paid off.

    To the current and former cops

    I do not want to named anybody in open forum. I just want to say THANK YOU guys for your service. It is a very tough time being a cop and you guys are being blamed for lots of stupid things. Thank you for being here for ordinary Joes, like myself. Keep up with good work. Life is better knowing you are around. Life could be much better if all this political nonsense let you do your job the way you supposed to do. I teach my doughtier that every time she sees one of you, to stop, say hello and thank you. THANK YOU AGAIN. God bless you all.

    After having an epic night you’re walking out of your spot at dawn. Another caster is just arriving and asks you, “Any luck?” You reply “nope” because you know luck had nothing to do with it.

    ARMY Lieutenant pulled over

    Why was he being pulled over initially and how long did he drive for? I assume policy is a felony stop, and the guy decided not to comply. He ordered pizza and it was delivered. "work with us, and we'll talk to you" cops gave him every opportunity. **** him.
