I do think things are changing. Who ever heard of a cownose ray, targeted grey trigger fish, went croaker fishing, back in the 1980's / '90's ?

 

But it could be that things are shifting back to the way they were 100 years ago, long before this "global warming" thing. If you go into the Belmar fishing club and look at the photos on the wall you'll see pictures of fancy guys in oilskin jackets and ties with their helpers holding mostly huge redfish, and just a few pics with stripers.

 

I could deal with a bull redfish run on the Monmouth County beaches

LOL on the pay phone.  Many moons ago there was one of those across the street from the ranger station on The Hook.  I used to call my wife on it to let her know I didn't drown and was on my way home in the wee hours b/c I always lost track of the time.  Wow.  How The Hook has changed over the past 40 years...
