It sucks to have found a bite then not be able to fish it because some clown has to open his mouth.
Now, do the math, this thread has had 31,500 views since it started 7 days ago - that's 4500 views per day
If 1% of the people who saw the post on any one day decide to go there that night that's 45 people.
That would be 4 guys on every jetty in all of Deal + Allenhurst on top of the guys that would have been there already - in other words, now you have to go find somewhere else to fish.
I saw Atlantic ocean 2.5 years ago for the first time. Surf fishing since then. Have never seen a crowd on a jetty. Saw may be 5-7 people at most, standing and not catching anything, are they there because they heard or read some rumors somewhere? And there is no one at the same spot the next day... Add some rain or wind and there is no one on the entire beach. Anyway, my point is, when I'll decide to take a vacation and to try fishing in another state and will ask for some help, the last think I'd like to hear is: "Help yourself, we have the rules and will not tell you anything".
