  1. Nice to see 8 teams compete in the High school division Good video on the NJFW FB page *
  2. Striped Bass Category Adult (Male): First Place: John Kolacy, Flanders, NJ - 37 4/8" Second Place: Michael Mastrian, Toms River, NJ - 31 2/8" High School Team First Place: Toms River High School South - 26 2/8" Bluefish Second Place: Manasquan High School - 25 6/8" Bluefish Third Place: Columbia High School - 18 3/8" Bluefish Lol... 220, 221 whatever it takes
  3. I heard over 60 fish caught, 37.5lb striper won.
  4. About 5 or 6 years ago I asked my Optometrist to find me a pair of wrap-style RX polarized glasses that wouldn’t break the bank. I have decent insurance, but doesn’t cover high-priced frames. We found these Nikes and I pulled the trigger sight-unseen. Love them!! Using my insurance, I get a new pair every year for about $100 out of pocket. Then I take my prescription and buy regular glasses on zenni for $18.95. Can’t beat Zenni!
  5. Can't find the big boys, but good action with 4-5lbers in 2 feet of water.
  6. 8 weight and a bunny clouser on a 2/0 3407.... A tiny meal for this fish... Amazing! You should consider posting a pic on the NJ forum. It will give us all hope!
  7. Video was great! I could feel the tension of the landing attempts even though I knew the outcome. Congrats on an amazing catch!
  8. I can confirm Seaside Park is open. Got my pass this week. The public works guys are using it almost daily to cart excess wind-blown sand from the boardwalk/street back up to the beach. So there may be an occasional temporary conflict when they are working. The beach replenishment workers and equipment are almost completely packed up and gone. The new access ramp over the dune is a very thick layer of compacted hard pack. Its a straight steep uphill ramp on the entrance side, and a long angled-south ramp on the down side toward the beach. Plenty wide enough to maneuver.
  9. The fluke is not even close to the greatest thing about this post. Great memories made! Nice job.
  10. I know a guy in NJ who can do a little better than that..... (Am I being too subtle?)
  11. True, but that’s just tuition. If you commute and eat and live at home for free, it’s not bad. For the 18-19 school year Rutgers is 15,500 for tuition only. Room and board is $13,500.They estimate $1,350 for books, and $4,500 for miscellaneous fees ( there’s a fee for everything) and transportation every year. True cost: about $34,000 for the first year if you live on campus and eat their food. Prices will go up every year.
  12. This is a demo model that I got as a dealer ( I think I mentioned that I have a yak rental biz.) I get a few calls for pedal rentals(non-fishing) so I decided to add a few Topwaters to my fleet because of size and price. Of course, the Demo has to be put through its paces, and I’ll have to be the one to do it! I really like the way a 7’ rod tucks under the seat and lays in the channel to the side of the drive. Wish it came in brighter colors.
  13. Maiden voyage/shakedown cruise today. Been pedaling a Revo since 07, and I never moved up to the high seats, so it was a little weird being up so high. Also took some time to train my legs to pedal in a circle. Not much else to say until I get some real time in. I have a positive first impression and high hopes for this little guy.
  14. I'm looking for a small amount of knotty pine for a kitchen Island project. 3 foot lengths (or longer). Tongue and groove with a detail similar to the picture. I'm in Ocean County, NJ. Anyone know of a source?
