  1. It’s not age, my friend. It’s the era.
  2. Sand eels usually show on the first big moon phase in June, whether it be full or new.
  3. If/when I get a call back, I’m also asking why there aren’t NO LITTERING signs posted in different languages. I don’t know if that’s a town matter, but I’ll ask regardless. Obviously college kids play a huge role down there as well, but it’s just common sense that it should be stated in various languages. Or is that too politically incorrect?
  4. I posted this in the other thread: Start calling. I just did. The woman at the DEM in JTN is really nice. She said parking was limited last year because of Covid and that they had discussed eliminating some more parking this year. I told her my (our) concerns. I said this could easily be solved if one DEM officer was stationed there from time to time. I explained how it’s frustrating that we pay for a fishing license, we spend a ton of money in the area, and that for the most part we’re law abiding citizens. She understood what I was saying, but also said rumors are circulating through social media so it might be overblown. That’s not how I feel. Someone is supposed to call me back today. I asked to speak directly to that person, but was denied. I will follow up with an email and more calls if I don’t get a response. It’s time to step up and jump in front of this if there’s still time. Call the JTN DEM. 401-789-0281. Please be polite, but firm. This situation could’ve been resolved if there was an officer present who’s willing to enforce the laws. Yes, they are stretched thin, but that doesn’t mean they still shouldn’t do their job.

  6. Great advice. Suggesting guys drive on illegally on a public forum... that won’t lead to anything bad. Unbelievable
  7. Was watching this eagle yesterday...
  8. I’ve been fishing long enough that I remember New Yawkas being notorious for driving the Cape beaches and lighting people up to see if they were catching. Porkfrogging at it’s finest.
  9. I’ve been fishing long enough that my college internship was “working” for Joe Lyons; esteemed writer, staple of RI surfcasting history, as well as a brilliant mind and an all around great guy.... ....But he’s best known as an early staple of OTW, as well as the owner of SurfcastingRhodeIsland.... .....And even more so, he’s same guy who came up with the slogan “Fish Hard Live Long”. which IMO encapsulates the die-hard surfcaster mentality better than any other wording in fishing history.
  10. Try again, boot licker.
  11. Penn (Z) is still king
  12. You need to hit the slopes. I’m starting to get concerned
