That's it. Area51.

Mike, I took a drive over there the other night after fishing. The scene was beyond belief.  Shoulder to shoulder on the waterline, with guys shoulder to shoulder on the road casting over them. The crossed lines were epic. The screaming and yelling made pro wrestling seem tame. Everyone running around with fish, hiding them everywhere.  At some point the police will have to intervene.

Yup, this picture does the circus no justice

Block island bound, canal bike loaded (I will be too) casting at beaches without another soul... food, sun, stars and some freaking peace and quiet

Without another soul? I wouldn’t be so sure about that. But definitely a better option regardless. Enjoy

You sh*tting me? How the hell can you even cast? A scene like that is good for nothing but laughs. Dopes falling in the water, hooking themselves, fighting. Good God, they can have it.

I threw out 10 lobster traps with no escape vents just to collect lures. 

Illegal.

New moon tides this week. If the spot in my photo looks like this at night (I usually had it all to myself when I fished night tides) imagine what it will look like mid-day on a holiday. Put on your walking shoes and find a place without easy drive up and fish access.

Wow ! I always wondered what an alien abduction looked like.

Nope. Without escape vents any lobster can escape. I'm allowed 10 traps with tags on them with my license. The whole were the escape vent was supposed to be will be bigger than escape vent regulations so how is it illegal.

If mentioning that canal is the reason its the way it is lets not blow up the block. 0 chance youll be alone too. There is a frenchmen out there that will find you and cross your lines. Sometimes he hooks your leg too. Beware the frenchmen

So you’re saying you removed the escape vents. I read that as you deployed traps which featured no vents. Trust me, I know the rules.

And many said the internet wouldn’t ruin fishing the Canal.  People should have had more foresight I guess.
