    Then they will need to deal with Christmas and new year  and perhaps they want to avoid the holidays..and perhaps for tax purposes they want to complete the work in the current tax year. Anyway, if they finish to job before the end of October you will be in a good shape since fishing in October is not as good as it used to be a decade ago.

    Dredgemen work 24 hrs a day 365 days a year. The business does not care about holidays. You clearly have no idea how offshore marine ops work. At this point I'm also inclined to believe that you are just arguing for arguments sake, just playing devils advocate. I'm done responding to you. Good luck in whatever it is you do. I know for certain it's not marine construction.

    The very last thing that gets factored in is “ The Fall Run “, if it gets thought of at all , which is highly doubtful . Marine construction , like all heavy construction can be somewhat seasonal , optimal times ( good weather ) increase productivity , which translates into profitability  Dredging , on the other hand , can be accomplished regardless of the weather ( to a point) , again , better weather , more production, more profit. Either way , the powers that be don’t give a rats ass about the fall run or any other . Lurp 66, Local 1556?

    The dredging is needed because of the shifting sand they used in the beach replenishments. The best time to do it is in the fall.



    The shifting sand was the excuse for destroying most of Monmouth county's jetties. As for October being the best month you are wrong. What do you base That on?  I have been in the marine construction industry for 30 years. That channel could be dredged any month of the year no problem. Please explain.

    I presume you're referring to the Disk Battenkill. Well a friend of mine had that reel on when he landed a 36lb Atlantic Salmon on a Quebec river and my wifecaught quite a few up to 15 lb using that reel so I venture to say it's strong enough for the fishing you intend to do. And I've been using my old Orvis DXRs (same disk drag system as the Battenkill) in the salt for the past few years and they are holding up very well. But I do rinse them off in fresh water after each outing.

    Suave, I don't know what the different drags are that Battenkills come with. But it sure sounds like it will work for me. Thanks

  5. I recently acquired this fly rod in a trade and I don't think it's ever been used. I plan on using it this fall in and around Sandy Hook.

    I'm looking for some advice on setting this up for surf fishing. My questions are:

    1- Is this rod adequate for central jersey surf fishing

    2- Reel  I'm leaning towards a Colton CRG 810. Is this good or should I be looking at something else.

    3- What line should I start out with

    I mainly fish at night out front. Any help is greatly appreciated.


    Thanks Paul

    I live in CT, and tried this technique this season. My friend stumbled upon it in YouTube. It slayed. I mean, absolutely slayed. Like 20 fluke in a single hour. The jerk shads hold up to a ton of abuse, too.


    We used 3/8 jig heads. I caught typically one or two keepers a night, and the biggest has been 25" and several 22-23" too.

    Are you fishing for and catching fluke at night? I only fish at night for stripers. I have never considered fishing for fluke at night.
