10/4- News from “The Groin” - Most of the summer, Carole Ann and I have either heard "stories" or were asked questions about the "groin" in Holgate, AKA, "wooden jetty", which essentially is the last jetty south in Holgate. It is apparently a hotbed of activity for anglers and for surfers alike. I came across an interesting article in The SandPaper that does a great job of summarizing and explaining the current and possible future situation ...

Last day of the tournaments! by Jingles - So today is the last day of the LBI Classic and the Jingles In-Store tournament and I am told there are a bunch of bass out there off the surf.  The biggest have been 24-25" but there must be some 28" out there!

Beautiful Saturday!! by Jingles - Well, if anything, its a gorgeous Saturday morning here in Beach Haven.  While its a cool 27 degrees, there is only a slight wind NNW at 8mph so its not too bad.

Fishing for Striped Bass – LBI Style - There are different ways to fish for your trophy fish. Boats A popular one with the boaters is to anchor in the inlet or bay with clams and or bunker. Some prefer to troll. Some of the popular lures to troll with are bunker spoons, stretch plugs and umbrella rigs. Many anglers like to use drift eels. You can only hope the bluefish are not in that area that day. ...
Weakfish Have Returned - Folks younger than 40-years-old probably will not remember the days of weakfish, caught here on LBI that would push 18 pounds. Gone are the days when you would see a dozen boats tied together using a small hook with a live grass shrimp on it and using shrimp for chum catching hundreds of weakfish using light tackle with 2-pound test trying to set all kinds of records landing this fish. ...
