Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) kicked off the final phase of a massive beach replenishment project from Sea Bright to Manasquan last week. Unfortunately, that project, like others before it, is bad news for surfcasters as it will fill in structure and cuts that attract fish to the surf. The popular Phillips Ave. jetty will be notched, though the original six jetties to be notched were reduced to three after negotiations with anglers. Despite the ecological damage involved, there was no way to stop the project involving $86,722,210 in Sandy aid federal funding as broad beaches are important to Shore communities. In the long run, future northeasters will probably restore some of the damage done and may even uncover some of the jetties being buried.
