  1. Tried to go back out a second time to clear out the left over freezing rain. No dice. Everything was solid and it's still coming down pellets. It's all froze, steps were salted and sorta cleared.... will see if it will melt and hold it clean. Won't be able to touch anything tomorrow....
  2. Was out there for 3 hours (seems unnecessary) to clear out a driveway and a car spot on the street. It was fine until half way when temp dropped, everything I was working on froze plus incoming ice pellets. I was trying to move the second car after the first and door was stuck froze. Figure I might not use the second car I'll just leave it until rain in a few day. Everything is heaving. My second stage isn't doing much with the ice sheet on the ground. Ugly out there.
  3. Thanks for the suggestion. However I was unable to do what you suggested. There is already flashing that goes under the last shingle and I am unable to squeeze in between the shingles. The last flashing is sitting between 2 pieces of shingle. So I had to pull it up and re-nail it? Now I had put a flashing piece nailed to the wall side just to cover the hole trying to find another idea.
  4. From what I heard, the daughter took over Jacob Wirth, then she stop caring about the customers.
  5. Shack line did suck, but I had the most luck on them when I was there. My noodle rod didn't do much. I was even using sibiki that go from bottom to about 2 feet high with multiple rods and different depths. Maybe.... maybe next time..... it's too far to drive for nothing. I never thought smelt is so hard to catch!!
  6. For the past few years I've been trying to get out to target them. Last year I went up to the camps with friends and only got a few for both trips. I rigged some rods and use their beam fishing lines and have them set to different depths. Most had worms on it and I used some with gulp pieces when some said those works too. I started off fishing down in Hingham area in one November day in 2016 and caught more than I went up to the camps...... /sigh
  7. I found this the other day while changing a light bulb, old asbestos siding that came off god knows when. Looks to be patched and came off again. Do I replace with another single piece that just cut into piece? Co-worker said to use a sheet metal and cut into shape to nail it on. No clue what to do here. Just wanted to patch this up before winter comes.
  8. Oh wow. I was up there twice last year and both time was a bust. Both times were evening hours, fished once incoming and once outgoing tide. I was close to not wanted to take the 6 hours round trip drive again.... I was reading about an article that smelt mature in a 2 year cycle so you will do well one year and the next not? Any tips on making me go again? Used worms that they gave us, had self made fishing rods and also using their stuff. Used jigs, little gulps, etc and only caught 3 total both trips...... Oh and a white perch.....
  9. I was going through last month and this month's bill. The thermal usage is exactly double of last months. But amount isn't double, it was more. So I look into why and notice the delivery charge is almost 15 cents higher than last month.... why? November bill: December bill:
  10. What's the rating? It's cut off from the picture. Location?
  11. Found this on my FB page through NJ division of wildlife:
  12. Thanks. That's what I was looking for.
  13. Where would I find a 1cm inner diameter by 8" long sleeve? Similar to something that would fit over a pencil. Just need it to be thin and strong.
  14. Elderly fisherwoman caught hiding fish in her walker Dan Radel, Asbury Park PressPublished 5:00 a.m. ET Dec. 1, 2018 An elderly fisherwoman couldn't fool a conservation officer with her empty bucket trick when her alleged scheme to hide illegal blackfish under the seat of her "walking aide," was sniffed out by the officer. Instead of fish, she went home with a summons to appear in a municipal court. According to a Facebook post from the New Jersey Conservation Officer Association, Detective Ryan Harp observed the elderly woman catching undersized blackfish while she was fishing from a boardwalk. She then allegedly wrapped the fish in plastic bags and placed them in a compartment under the seat of the walking aid she was utilizing. When Harp approached her she denied catching any fish and offered her bucket for inspection before Harp asked her to remove the fish from her walker. Blackfish, also called tautog, are a common recreational fish. The peak season is mid-November to early spring when fishermen are allowed five fish a day. The fish have to be 15 inches in length. The above incident occurred in October when the fishermen are only permitted one blackfish per day. Harp foiled another fisherman's plan to conceal several undersized blackfish in the liner of his jacket. Harp and Conservation Officer Cody Meyer stopped the fishermen as he was trying to leave a jetty. The fishermen denied having caught any fish "until the officers asked him to remove his coat," according to the New Jersey Conservation Officer Association. The fisherman was also given a summons.
  15. I think they use to up till 6 months or so ago. I was a little surprised of it..... and don't know why.
