between there and the bathing beach, don't remember exactly where I was (oops, spot burn)

.......ah so.  What is left of the amusement pier.  Did it get rebuilt?  Or is it just a fish magnet?

fm, the Casino Pier (north end of boardwalk) is up and running, not as large as before Sandy, but I understand the owner worked out some sort of deal with Seaside Heights  whereby Seaside Heights gets possession of the old Carousel and the Casino Pier gets additional beach front land to expand. The Fun Town Pier and everything destroyed by fire at south end is still pretty much vacant, except for boardwalk. All kinds of rumors as to what will be proposed for development in the future, Safe to say it will NEVER be what it was. Time marches on.  If your interested, there is one beachfront parcel for sale, :D

.....well, I gotta say, the surf fishing is eons better there than where I live now.  My old stomping grounds. But the prices/taxes are not very friendly for many retirees.  For example, our RE taxes were $550 here in DE for a 2800 SF home.  We have since moved from that house in Georgetown DE to a new place in Lewes DE and the RE taxes here are $1K for a 3200 SF home.  I have a few friends who live not too far from where you live and OMG...one guy lived in a 3BR tear-down and his RE taxes were $14K....that was13 years ago.  He did live on a waterfront lot on the bay though.  That's way too expensive for my "fixed income" situation.  I do miss the good fishing and variety of places to fish from Raritan Bay down to where you live though.

fishing isn't what it used to be and Sandy has nothing to do with that. As far as taxes, as they say location, location, location! Everyday, you must say TGFD (thank God for DuPont)

....that's too bad.  In the years that I fished in your neighborhood there was always plenty of bait along the beachfronts.  Mostly sand eels and anchovies.  Every jetty and hole was loaded with them.  I have not seen a single sand eel down here since we moved down back in '04.  Actually Du Pont never crosses my mind at all.  Delaware's big $$$ maker is it's business friendly....a.k.a. "incorporation environment". I think Nevada is big on that too.  I must say that offshore fishing is great in the canyons here and beyond.  I used to do that too, when I had access to somebody else's boat.  Sadly, those days are gone for me now...although I would jump at the opportunity to get back out there even as an "observer".  I did hit the beach this afternoon at sundown for about 2 hrs.  Nada.  Seas were calm, but the surf was big.  Only one other fisher where I was and about twenty surfers.  Maybe tomorrow will be better.  There must be a striped one out there someplace. ;)
