John Taylor, fishing with his son Buck and grandson Ben, lead the way with a 16 species day,including a 6 pound permit, a few weeks ago. Depending on the water temperature,the deeper channel edges will produce good catches of sheepshead and mutton snapper, as well as grouper, pompano, Spanish, jacks and ladyfish.
The blizzard is really just getting started as I write this blog, but I'm already wondering what's going to happen to the millions of dollars worth of sand that was dumped on N. J. beaches last year and ,in many cases, covered productive fishing areas. I probably can't blame that for the historically bad surf fishing last fall, but it certainly didn't help.
My nephews, Bob Correll of Bay Head and Todd Correll of Fort Lauderdale, just finished up two Florida sailfish tournaments. Then they returned to Fort Lauderdale for a yacht club interclub contest that Todd had won last year while his son Connor took the junior angler award.
It actually felt pretty nice along the Shore by the middle of Saturday afternoon, and the snow melted away quickly, but small craft warnings are up for Sunday -- and then it really gets bad late that night -- with gale warnings up for Monday's northeast winds. Friends of Hi-Mar Striper Club pro Bob Kamienski can pay their respects from 2-5 p. m. Sunday in John F. Pfleger Funeral Home, 115 Tindall Rd., Middletown.

A few folks have called worried about a couple inches of snow so I thought I better post this. Keep in mind Atlantic City and all of south Jersey is only supposed to get ALL rain and maybe less than an inch of snow so shouldn't be a big deal.
It was drop and reel mayhem with multiple big fish coming up at a time, and before we knew it were limited out and everyone was sweating and breathing heavy!Big thanks to Irene from Harbor View for meeting us at the fuel dock to weigh some of these boys and girls in.
