STRIPED BASS MANAGEMENT FORUM ON APRIL 23
RFA-NJ Hosts Public Discussion in Manahawkin With NJDEP
Slot striper? One fish bag limit? Increase the size from 28 to 34 inches? Leave it alone?
When it comes to striped bass, everyone's got a management answer - but what exactly is the question that fisheries managers are asking? Whether you fish by boat or by beach, if you're a New Jersey striped bass angler the time for management discussion has arrived!
On Wednesday, April 23rd from 7 to 9 p.m., join Russ Allen of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection's (DEP) Division of Fish and Wildlife at the Holiday Inn on Route 72 in Manahawkin, just east of Exit 63 off the Garden State Parkway, for a special public forum exclusively on striped bass management.
Hosted by the Recreational Fishing Alliance's New Jersey Chapter (RFA-NJ), this free event features an overview of the latest Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission's (ASMFC) striped bass assessment results, current coastwide stock status, New Jersey's survey results and potential ASMFC management actions.
The forum will offer attendees a unique glimpse at what fisheries managers discussed at the ASMFC Striped Bass Board meeting back in February. ASMFC will take up the striped bass discussion again at their spring meetings in Alexandria, VA which start on Monday, May 12th. In response, the public will be asked to comment on a series of management options this summer which are designed to meet conservation goals and targets for Atlantic Coast striped bass stocks; any changes to the recreational or commercial sector are expected to be implemented in time for the 2015 calendar year.
Organizers at the RFA-NJ say the Wednesday, April 23rd event at the Holiday Inn of Manahawkin is designed as an open forum for individual saltwater anglers, for-hire captains and members of the recreational tackle community, those with a direct interest in the future of striped bass management along the coast.
We held a similar forum in February at the Atlantic City Boat Show which was very well received, but we're hoping this time to get more folks from the surf community involved in the discussions, especially casters from the Central and North Jersey Coast," said RFA-NJ board member Greg O'Connell, recently tabbed as National Shore Access Representative for RFA.
"The planned forum should not only educate anglers on the state of the fishery but also provide an opportunity to have their thoughts and opinions heard by the folks tasked with making the changes," O'Connell said.
Members of the RFA and the RFA-NJ chapter will be reaching out to various fishing club leaders in the coming days to encourage active participation in this public forum, which is being held to inform interested members of the public about the upcoming management discussions, while providing an unofficial forum for public feedback.
"At the boat show there was plenty of discussion about slot fish, poaching, and even some of the out-of-state efforts by some to open the EEZ to striped bass fishing, which as we learned in Atlantic City has very little support in the community," said RFA executive director Jim Donofrio, a longtime opponent of reopening the EEZ to striper fishing. RFA was originally founded in 1996 in part as a response to NOAA Fisheries' efforts to reopen federal waters to striped bass harvest.
"New Jersey anglers are blessed to have one of the leading striped bass experts along the entire Atlantic Coast working in our own DEP offices, and we're very thankful that Russ is offering up his time to meet with the public on April 23rd," Donofrio said.
Donofrio also went on to praise state legislators for their ongoing commitment to the recreational fishing community, particularly with regard to striped bass. At a meeting this past weekend of the Strathmere Fishing and Environmental Club attended by Donofrio, Capt. Nowalsky and elected officials from the Cape May District, South Jersey anglers learned first-hand that efforts to open up commercial striped bass processing in the state have officially been stalled by one particular Trenton saltwater angler.
New Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee Chairman Bob Andrzejczak of Cape May County made it fairly clear to his fellow anglers in Strathmere that this unwise legislation would not be going anywhere in his committee," Donofrio said. "This is a bad piece of legislation which we're afraid could create a black market for New Jersey fish to enter restaurants and also pose legal problems with the current gamefish status of striped bass."
Our thanks to Chairman Andrzejczak for his pledge to defeat those efforts," said Donofrio.
In New Jersey, recreational size limits are set by the New Jersey Legislature; state law also forbids the commercial harvest or sale of striped bass in the state. "Whatever actions the ASMFC decides to take in the coming months, it's going to be up to the New Jersey Senate and Assembly, along with our Governor, to come together to make it work," Donofrio said.
"If you want to see this done right, it's a good idea to get away from those keyboards for an evening and participate in public dialog with your fellow anglers," he added.
Wednesday night, April 23 from 7 until 9 p.m. at the Holiday Inn on Route 72 in Manahawkin, approximately 1 mile east of Garden State Parkway Exit 63. It's on the South Side of Route 72, just past Home Depot on the right. Admission is free.
We are hooked up with California Grill and Dockside Dinner.
We want to see your striper.
If you are taking your bass home come show it to us at Jingles Bait and Tackle so we can take a picture and you will get a free pizza at California Grill or breakfast for 2 at Dockside.(opening March 26th).
Your bass must be caught from LBI or if you are fishing from a boat you must leave port from LBI and return to port the same day.
Give-aways to the first 10 bass.
We are still waiting to see the first keeper bass of 2014 but meanwhile we are thinking about the fall.
The Surf Fishing Classic committee met Thursday and the dates are set for the 60th year.
The tournament starts on October 6th and runs till November 30th.
Today was a day that there was s lot of brainstorming going on. A lot of different ideas thrown out on the table which some are very interesting.
Like always we need your support and we are always looking for sponsorship.
Tues April 15th
Wet and windy this morning. Air temp is 52 and we have a SSW wind gusting to 16. The ocean temp is 46. I could hear the ocean this morning as I walked out of the house so if you are hitting the beach take some heavy sinkers and the rain gear.
I looked for the blood moon last night but gave it up around midnight. I know it was pretty cloudy so I don't know if it was visible here.
We are still waiting for our first keeper bass in store.
Mon April 14th
Amazing how much colder over here than the mainland. People showed up in shorts but were quick to put a sweatshirt on. The cool ocean temps are keeping us in the 50s.
Breezy today with temps heading to 60. The ocean is 49.
Continued reports of stripers from the bayside but we have not seen a keeper yet. Clams and bloodworms are the baits of choice.
Sun April 13th
Another nice day here on LBI. We have a SSW wind at 13 and it is 55 degrees. The ocean is 48
. We have increased reports of fish from the bayside but no keeper bass yet!
Sat April 12th
You could not ask for a nicer morning. The air is 53, no wind, ocean is 45 and the bay is flat.
Several angler reported back yesterday that had tried the surf with no luck. Will today be the day?
As we get closer to Income Tax day it is a reminder on how good the mackeral fishing was at that time of the year. Twenty some years ago that was the fish that everyone looked forward to. The bass would be under the mackeral. As the water temp approached that 54 degree mark you would start catching mackeral with tails bit off which told you the bluefish had arrived. One year we had mackeral in our area for 8 weeks.
I hope you get some time to be outdoors today and go fishing..
Fri April 11th
The ocean has hit the 48 degree mark and usually that is a magic number for bait fishermen and those that throw plugs.
One report we had was from a tog fishermen that hit the Lighthouse but struck out. Another one from the Delaware River where there were larger bass caught the last few days.
The last couple of warmer days things have improved things around here. It has been mostly shorts on the bayside in our area but there seems to be numerous ones around. Cape May/Delaware Bay is reporting keepers.
This morning it is 50 and we have a SSW wind at 8.
It looks like a nice weekend ahead and I am sure there will be alot of people enjoying the outdoors. If your fishing we appreciate your fishing reports.
We are still waiting for the first keeper bass.
Tues April 8th
April showers bring May flowers but we have March winds and may see some June temperatures today. What a Spring it has been.
This morning it is 52 with SSW at 13 gusting to 26. The ocean temp is 44. Despite the wind we still have a little fog. High tide on the beach is 3:43 pm. Low is10:41 am.
We are still waiting to see a striper.
It is getting to be the time of year to start thinking about drum fish. Normally in the Spring we see quite a few black drum. Last fall we had an abundance of reds will they make a return?
Graveling Point is a spot where the first stripers start is still waiting for a keeper. Will we see one from the beach before they get one? The internet has had a picture of a beautiful 30 inch weakfish caught over the weekend at an unknown place.
Sat April 5th
A little fog over night but not bad. This morning it is 44 with a NW wind gusting to 12. Water temp is 43.
I heard of a few small stripers and with the warmer air temps should heat up some more. Try some high-low rigs with smaller hooks and bait them up with clams or worms or try a worm on one hook and clam on the other. I also heard of a few winter flounder near the bridge.
Good luck to the trout fishermen today.
Fri. April 4th
It can't be long before we see that first striper as I finally saw daffodils in my yard.
I am sure with the nicer weather it has had some of the boat owners working on their boats. This Spring has not been the nicest to get the work done and I keep hearing how far behind they are getting them ready.
This morning it is very cloudy and windy with an occasional rain drop. The wind is from the ENE gusting to 16 and the air is 43.The last few days have been warmer and it has pushed the ocean temp to 43.
We have had a lot of boxes being delivered the last few days with some new and items and a bunch of old favorites so I better get to work and put them away.
Tues April 1st
We are open till 4 today.
Pretty morning with a lite breeze from the north west. The air is 37 at 7 am and the ocean is 41.5.
Rumor has it that they caught a 40 pound bass last night from the beach. Yup you got it "April Fools".
Mon March 31st
We are open today till 4.
Cloudy and still damp with winds from the NW at 16. The weather men sure got this wrong. Last week they had the beginning of the week looking great.
We are still waiting to give away breakfast and pizzas just to see your striper.
Sun March 30th
Despite the less than perfect weather there are a lot of people on the island.
There was some heavier rain over night with northeast winds gusting to 20+.The ocean temp has finally hit the Four-0.
Our inland visitors tell us how far behind there yards are as far as coming alive for the Spring and estimate to be 10 days to 2 weeks. If that is true we should start seeing some fish here very soon.
Are you ready to reel them in? Make sure everything is in working order for when you hook up.
We are just about caught up with reel repairs so if yours need service it is a great time to drop it off.
Sat March 29th
At 6:30 am there is a lite rain falling and there is little to no wind. The ocean temp is pushing 40.
The good news is that what is falling from the sky is not white. The overnight temps for the next few days are mild which should help warm up the water temps.
We are still waiting to see a bass. The first one came in on April 2nd last year and was caught on the bayside with a blood worm.
Fri March 28th
The March winds are gusting this morning blowing from the SSW up to 27 mph. It is 43 this morning and the ocean is 38.
We are still waiting for the first LBI bass.
Yesterday it felt like a day it could happen. Even though it was cool there was no wind and if you were in the sun it was warm. It would have been a great day to grab some blood worms and hit the bayside looking for a bass or winter flounder.
Only a few more days before Holgate closes (April 1st) for its annual shut down. Snow owls are still present. The front beach are open to 4x4s with permit.
Wed March 26th
Is this it? Enough is enough!
Our 3rd snow fall here in the month of March. This storm gave us around 3 inches of snow. It is pretty to look at and see the trees covered with snow. It is always nice when the snow is on the grassy surfaces and very little on the street.
Today is a windy day with NW winds in the 30s making it for a chilly day. Air temps are in the 30s. The ocean temp has dropped a degree again.
Mon March 24th
It is another day that feels like winter. Air temps are below 30 and we have a north wind around 12. The ocean temp is starting to rise up and is at 39. Last week we were the same but when the snow came it dropped it back down. This weeks weather forecast has a combo of rain/snow so it should not show such a dramatic swing as it did last week. Last week the bay went from 41- 33 with the snow.
This weekend a lot of people had planned on uncovering the boat but snow predicted they are holding off another week. Lets hope this is the end of the winter weather.
Sunday was the opening of winter flounder season. We had a few people try the bay but had no reports. Winter flounder season will continue this year to December 31st allowing you 2 fish at 12 inches and better. This weekend there were a few surf anglers giving it a try and reports back were no good the water is so cold.
We will have more bloodworms for the weekend.
Sun March 23rd
I would like to thank NJBBA and everyone that helped for a job well done yesterday in Holgate. Past President Paul Harris said they had about 125 volunteers help out in the clean up. I understand a bus of young people showed up to help.
The weatherman sure had the weather wrong for us here at the beach yesterday morning. They said no wind in the morning which we had plenty of put by afternoon it dropped out and warmed up making for a nice afternoon. Now we have to see what Mother Nature is going to hand us this week.
This morning it is 40 with a north wind gusting go 15. The ocean is 39.
Sat March 22nd
Enjoy the day as they say this is the best it is going to be for the next few days.
I am still waiting to see the sun this morning. It is overcast with an air temp of 42. The wind is from the SSW gusting to 22.
We are open today till 4 pm.
Fri March 21st
It is 37 degrees this first day of Spring. We do have a west wind gusting to 13 which is about half of what it was yesterday.The ocean is still under 40.
We will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
**** Don't forget the Holgate beach clean up tomorrow. Just be at the Holgate parking lot at 8 am.
Thurs March 20th
It is time to Spring it on.
Upping the prize!!!Come on Spring! First striper brought into Jingles Bait and Tackle will get a pizza from California Grill and breakfast for four at Dockside Diner. Your bass must be caught from LBI or if you are fishing from a boat you must leave port from LBI and return to port the same day.
Mon March 17th
If it had to snow today you would think it would have been green to celebrate the holiday.
The snow started last evening and it was real fine that felt like a mist. At one point yesterday they said a dusting to 2 inches but that is not the case today. Looks like our friend to the north got lucky on this storm and once again it is a southern storm.
We have enough to have the schools closed today which is a shame as today was to be the reopening of the LBI Ship Bottom Grade School. It is finally ready to open from the damage from Sandy. This school was used as an evacuation center in the 1962 storm and suffered no damage at that time so that is a reference point to how much more water we had in Sandy.
Have a Happy St Patricks Day and think green ( green grass,and green leaves on trees).
Sat March 15th
It will be 5 fluke this year at 18 inches. They still have to decide on the 128 days that it will be.
A little shower this morning but it looks to be a nice day with temps reaching 60. This morning it is 43 and we have a SW wind at 14. High tide on the each today is 7:48 am and low is at 2:10 pm.
The weather forecast still has that 4 letter word in it (SNOW) for south part of Jersey on Monday. Right now they say it keeps pushing south. I hope enough that we don't see it. Mean while we have more boxes coming everyday as we prepare for the fish to arrive.
Fri March 14th
What a weather yo-yo have we been on. Tuesday in Cape May it was 68 on Wednesday that had winds that were almost that high. Thursday you were lucky it was 28. Like most I have had enough on this weather and wish all days were like Tuesdays temps. Right now they are talking snow for Monday.
Wed March 12th
I hope you got the chance to get outdoors yesterday. What a beautiful day!
I am sure it did a lot to warm the waters. Inland the temp was 68 when I left Cape May.
I took advantage when a off the day being warm when I was off and headed to one of my favorite place. The Cape May Zoo. The snow owl they have there looks like a baby compared to the one in Holgate. While down there as alway went to see the concrete ship. Last year I did not make it down there because of Sandy but it looks like it deteriorated a lot in the last 2 years. Usually there are people fishing there but not yesterday.
Sun March 9th
What a beautiful day it was here yesterday at the beach. The air temp hit almost 60 and it was as warm here as the mainland. Last evening I was out at when I got home around 11 it was still 45. This morning it is a little damp. Air temp is 37 and the wind is from the northwest.
With the nice day yesterday we had several anglers buy bait to give it a try. Some where headed to the beach and others to the bayside. No reports back yet.
The meeting on fluke regulations did not set the dates on Thursday but they did finalize winter flounder. Once it opens on March 23rd it will be open till December 31st.
Sat March 8th
We are back and what a nice day to open. It is in the mid 30s this morning with a lite west wind. Amazing when we get a day with temps in the 40s that it feels so good. After this winter I think everyone is ready to get out of the house. Ocean temp is 38.
Don't forget to change your clocks tonight.
Thurs March 6th
It is time to come out of hibernations.
Starting on Saturday we will be open on weekends plus a few days.
It is another chilly day with temps below freezing. The wind is from the northeast and the ocean is still below 40. It looks nice to see a warming tread for the weekend.
It will be interesting to see what comes out of the Marine Fisheries meeting today. Unfortunately I have 3 different thing to attend today so I will not be making the meeting. I will let you know as soon as I find out.
Mon March 3rd
The good news is that we are not getting 14 inches of snow but we do have snow on the beach.
At 11 am it is 18 degrees with a north wind at 14.
Around 9 am New Jersey News reported that Manahawkin was the highest amount of snow at 4 inches.
I would like to thank Jack for this video showing our storm. Click snow to watch.
Depending where you measure we have anything from an inch to maybe 8. The snow has gotten stronger after daylight. Picture is courtesy of Aloha Ric showing us Bay Village this am.
Yesterday was the calm before the storm but you would have thought it was a summer day with the crowd at the Acme stocking up.
Thursday is the meeting at the Galloway Township Library to finalize fluke regulations. It is my understanding that they are talking about raising the size for blue claw crabs also this year.
Sat March 1st
Here we are at the 1st of March the traditional opening of striper season. If your looking for one you better find some warm water.
The weatherman is not painting a pretty picture for the weather and if he is right we may have some snow here at the beach. So far we have been lucky and for us mostly rain.
We are anxious to get back to work and get the season started but for right now we are holding off. Today and tomorrow look pretty. My bet is the grocery stories will be very busy as people prep for this storm.
Wed Feb 26th
It is another winter like day today with a few snow flurries.
We got spoiled last weekend with the warmer weather but this weekend it looks like some unsettled weather again.
It is hard to believe that the traditional opening of striper season is on Saturday and I am sure there will be anglers giving the normal early season areas a try.
We will be opening in a few weeks and I hope by then we are feeling more like springtime.
Fri Feb 21st
What a day yesterday was. I would like it if the whole winter was like that. Looks like a nice weekend ahead with some warmer weather so you should be able to get outside and get rid of some of that cabin fever. For those of you inland it should melt some of your snow.
Tide charts are in so I know opening time is getting closer.
Received this note yesterday Last Friday I flew down to palm to visit mom and dad,looked up
Capt ' Vic..convinced him to go fishing. Good day with liveees,2 sails 1 king 2 dolphin it was 7 years ago...my last trip down.
Fri Feb 14th
A weekend ,Valentines Day plus a full moon.
Wishing everybody a Happy Valentines Day.
Once again we were lucky here at the shore. Some overnight snowed melted off quickly today leaving us a nice day but windy. Yesterday high tides and winds gusting to around 50 did cause a little beach erosion but for the most part we are in good shape.
Busy weekend with Southern Regional High Schools Fishing Flea Market on Saturday and the Beach Haven Firemans Dinner from 12 to 8 on Saturday.
Thurs Feb 13th
What started out as snow for us here at the shore late evening turned to rain fairly quickly washing away what fell.
This storm will effect so many people so please be careful. As they say if you don't have to drive don't but we know that is not possible as so many have jobs they must get to.
At 2 am it is 35 degrees with the wind from the NNE and is gusting to 22. I hope this wind does not cause to much beach erosion.
Tues Feb 11th
Jetty Repair info from NJ DEP Press Release issued today:
CHRISTIE ADMINISTRATION ANNOUNCES U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS CONTRACT ISSUED FOR JETTY REPAIR AT ISLAND BEACH STATE PARK
WORK TO STABILIZE SUPERSTORM SANDY-DAMAGED JETTY TO BEGIN THIS MONTH
(14/P10) TRENTON - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Philadelphia District has awarded a contract for the repair of the north jetty at Barnegat Inlet, which protects the southern tip of state-owned Island Beach State Park in Ocean County, Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Commissioner Bob Martin announced today.
The contract was awarded to Agate Construction Company of Clermont in Cape May County for $7.6 million to repair approximately 740 feet of the jetty on the north side of the inlet that was battered by Superstorm Sandy. The project is expected to begin later this month and be completed by the fall.
"This project will bring much-needed stabilization of the jetty at Island Beach State Park, and should be the final piece of the post-storm restoration of our state park, which the Christie Administration has been fully committed to since Superstorm Sandy," DEP Commissioner Martin said. "This is part of the overall coastal repair and restoration effort along the entire New Jersey coast being done by the Army Corps of Engineers, in coordination with the DEP, that will result in a more resilient state shoreline."
Superstorm Sandy caused the displacement of stone along a 740-foot portion of the north jetty that borders Island Beach State Park's shoreline. The repair work will involve rebuilding the cross-section of the jetty using existing capstone, supplemented with additional capstone, corestone, slushed concrete and stone-filled mattresses.
During the project, all mobile sport fishing access points will remain open to permit holders. But the beach area adjacent and to the north of the jetty will be closed for the duration of the project.
"While we recognize the jetty is a popular fishing destination, it is imperative that the jetty area be closed to all go park-goers for their own safety during this project," said Mark Texel, State Park Director for the DEP. "Ultimately, we will have a stronger jetty that will best serve Barnegat Inlet and the south end of our park, and jetty fishing can resume."
The Barnegat Inlet north jetty was first constructed in 1940 and raised in elevation in 1974. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dredged the inlet last July. The inlet requires dredging to provide a safe and reliable navigation channel for the U.S. Coast Guard and a large fishing fleet consisting of full-time commercial, charter and recreational vessels.
Shaped by storms and tides, Island Beach State Park is a narrow barrier island stretching for 10 miles between the ocean and Barnegat Bay. It is one of New Jersey's last significant remnants of a barrier island ecosystem and is one of the few remaining undeveloped barrier beaches on the north Atlantic coast.

Mon Feb 10th
A little snow over night but all in all the weather looks a little warmer this week. I don't know of many people that haven't had enough of this winter.
I went to the Atlantic City boat show last week and just doing that has you thinking about warmer weather. It also has you dreaming about so great boats too. Now if you could get one boat to do all you like to do it would be great. It is not always easy going crabbing in a 40 some foot boat.
The annual Beach Haven Firemans Dinner is Saturday. For me this has always been a tradition. My parents in the 30s use to drive down from Phila for this event. To my Mom she always said when we got to this dinner that the winter for the most part was over. It is a great dinner and the monies go for a great cause. I can not praise the firemen enough for the work that they do. Please support them.
This week we got what I think is lousy news about this years fluke fishing. We have been grouped with Conn. and New York in the size. This year is will be 4 fish at 18 inches.
At one time New York was 20 inches and had been brought down to 19 last year now 18.
It is hard to believe that we overfished fluke last year that we got this ruling. We all know that there were not as many boats in local waters here last year as some were not replaced after Sandy or folks were to busy with their homes to put the boat in the water. We also know that fishing on the beach was not very productive as far as fluke also so how did we catch more?
To our south Delaware whose size had been 17 inches with no closed season 4 fish is now 16 inches.
I don't know what happened here for New Jersey but if was for the better what they did to us. We are still waiting on dates.
It would be really nice if they would sit down and look what they have done and reconsider.
Wed Feb 5th
Rain again here at the shore.
Yesterday the ASMFC met and are trying to balance out catches of fluke among the states. We are grouped with New York and Conn.
What they have come up with is 4 fluke @18 inches for the State of New Jersey. The dates have not been set as of yet but we are suppose to get 128 days. Now it will be up to the State to set the dates.
Tues Feb 4th
No snow here! Rain for us which washed away almost all the snow we had on the ground and also thawed the bay out more.
It is below freezing this morning so watch out for icy roads.
We have some discontinued reels on sale. Shimano Baitrunners BTR 6000D and 8000D either one for 145.00. We also have a couple of 310 and 320 GT2s left also. Price is 68.00 each.
If you are interested drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Freight is included in price
Here are a couple of things to do this weekend to help shake off some cabin fever. Looks like Saturdays weather maybe okay before the next round of snow.
Atlantic City boat show is this week and it looks like the weather will be good for that show.
NJBBA will have their Flea Market on Sat Feb 8th from 8 - 1 at the Elks Lodge 1875 located at 600 Washington Street in Toms River.
Sat Feb 1st
I love turning the page on Jan. It makes me feel that we are getting there as Feb. is a short month and I have the Firemens Dinner to look forward to on Feb 15th.
It is a nice morning with the temps above freezing is allowing some thawing in the bay which has some ice flows going out the inlets.
I hope you enjoy the weekend as it looks nice.
Wed Jan 29th
How often do we all say we want the weathermans job. Last week they predicted 6 to 12 and we got 3 inches of snow. Last nights 1-3 is 6+. It looks like we need to double it or cut it in half to get it right.
The snow last night was a light fluffy one. It was beautiful and glistened like diamonds on the ground.
Looks like another warming trend coming for a few days. Maybe that will thaw the bay out some.
Jan 28th 2014
A little bit of a heat wave this morning!
I for one will not be sorry to see January over with. I am not a cold weather person so this has not been one of my favorite months. What the cold has done has made us get a lot of work done to the house that needed to be done.
We have gotten lucky with the snow here. The 6 - 12 inches from the other day turned out to be maybe three. The main thing about snow on LBI is that there is not a lot of cars riding on the road to help make the treatment they put down to make it work especially on a weekend when there are no work trucks going over it.
Saturday brought us some strong winds which cause some beach erosion on some beaches. This pick is from Paul M. in Holgate.
Looking forward to warmer weather. Stay healthy.
Jan 14th 2014
It is hard to believe that this month is going by so quickly. We have seen all kinds of weather. We have had record setting cold to almost record setting heat. We have had our share of snow that has been short lived and some heavy rains that have helped to wash away the snow. When we had our coldest weather is was very wind which kept the bay from freezing at that time but once the wind stopped we did have some ice in the bay. For right now it is ice free.
The record cold has brought problems to some homes this winter with the pipes breaking. If you leave your heat and water on it is not a bad idea to turn up the temp a little bit.
Lots of construction still going on as more houses are getting raised or some new ones being built.
People are suprised when they see me in the Acme that I am not south for the winter. Sandy has dictated my plans as we continue to repair like many others are still doing. Projects are coming along well despite a little set back with the flu which definitlely put a stop to thing for awhile but now it is back on track.

I would like to thank everyone for all their support last year.
Last year I thought of myself as a survivor and we did survive with your help .This year as we go forward hopefully everything will continue to get better for everyone as we watch our island rebuild from one of the worst storms it has every had.
Wishing you a Happy and Save New Years and looking forward to seeing you in 2014.
