    fishing
  1. Noaa Sat NE winds 15 to 20 kt with gusts to 30 kt. Seas 6 to 7 ft. A chance of rain through the day, then rain likely through the night. Sun NE winds 20 to 25 kt with gusts to 35 kt. Seas 9 to 11 ft. Rain likely, then a chance of showers after midnight. 9-11 feet Sunday for AI. Not fishable. Even if just tropical remnants it will mess up the surf like the forecast is starting to show. I got off from work to fish too. Ughh.
  2. That is Ian. Hope its wrong.
  3. Hope this does not happen with the storm.
  4. In my basement
  5. Based on those photos I guess I can cast 1/2 mile. Who knew.
  6. Jeez, might need the beach cart if it stays closed. Sure hope not. Been wondering what the deal was with the beach and overwash. Hope it gets better as we move away from last full moon and assuming no offshore hurricans.
  7. I dont use big eyes. I use the mustard 39960 15/0 hooks mostly, with some 39950s here and there. Allen is mistaken on the big eyes, I'm not rolling in $. Or i guess you could say I'm just cheap, lol.
  8. I have these hooks still John. Look familiar?
  9. Spelled 50 or more hooks yesterday in anticipation of fall drum fishing. Getting ready.
  10. Nothing has changed they still ruin tents, raid unattended coolers, go into open truck tailgates, etc. Gotta be aware of your surroundings at campgrounds, mostly Bayside. They just come in and do as they please so if you are cooking and got stuff out, they just move in and will check it out. Speaking of horses taking clothes, I had a horse take my waders once, ended up flinging them 10 feet away after chewing on them for a few seconds. At the campground. Some great stories here guys.
  11. Same happen to me. Got it on video too. Horses in full run down water line, dog starts barking, I turn arond to see 6 or 7 horses coming at us. They stopped when they got real close, a few went in front and some behind us and they kept going south. 15-30 min later, they came north past us again. This time the alpha came walking right at me and my suburban, right straight at me. He was letting me know he was in charge, no mistake about that. Came so close I had to get between truck and cargo carrier in back. He was 10 feet away just looking at me for long enough to get the point across. A mean horse. It was pretty intense. What a memory though.
  12. I was told on Md side the horses, not ponies, came from a guy who owned them and kept them at state park. Was gonna get sued by Md due to horses causing trouble, so nps agreed to take them (for advertising purposes to draw visitors to assateague). Allen knows the details. No idea about Va. horses. I
  13. Yea, its about 3 miles, 145 trucks. No thanks. Outrageous they get all of our money from osv passes and for the summer visitors they close 75% of our beach. I should shut up, don't want to get Possum going on this one.
  14. Hate to hear stuff like this. Total BS. I'm always interested in how the public trust doctrine applies to situations like this in different areas. No idea about DE laws on that. I researced Va laws quite a bit when Nature conservancy said they had ownership of below hight tide line on barrier islands....they cant own the beach. Its a public trust basically. Beach and any wet sand are all of ours to access, not private beaches favoring a few homeowners or others. Not theirs to take. Good luck.
  15. Some of you may remember this little kid who fished in green frog boots... Well, he just graduated from VCU!! Very proud of my son.They grow up quick. Hoping we get more time to fish again now that he's done with school. Already talking about red drum this fall.
