Evenin' everyone. Just moved to the Jersey Shore (from Pa via a few years in Freehold), just got into striper fishing. Everything I know about it (albeit not much) I learned from this forum and a few other sites.

I've been going 1 to 3 times a week for about a month; no luck yet (started with bait, but now mainly plugs at night) but i'm a looong way from letting that stop me. So here's an attempt at giving something back, even with my greenhorn status.

the beach cam posts above reminded me of somthing my buddy (a geology major) showed me a few months ago. a downloadable feature of google called google earth... easy to use, and you can zoom a satellite image into a hundred foot birds eye view. for newcomers like myself who are can't get out during daylight (stupid job) and haven't mastered the art of reading waves yet, it's a great way to see the sandbars and pools...even in pitch black.

i'm going to attempt to attach a picture for reference.. if it doesn't work, bear with me.. first attempt. this is about 60 yards of beach by my apartment. it's not real time, but close enough. this may not be the slightest bit useful to anyone, but i figured it was worth a post.

I have to share this story:

 

So I'm fishing with Killie one morning and nothing is going on at all. Finally when the sun comes up we see bait getting pummeled in the wash but still no dice. The fish are being real picky. I look over the bar and it looks like a washing machine. Fish doing cartwheels out of the water for about a quarter mile. Killie decides to go back to his truck and get a different rod. The second he gets off the sand, the fish push over the bar and start coming close. They're just outta my reach when he comes back. As soon as his foot hit the sand, the fish vanish, and I mean instantly.
