As 2020 winds down into it’s final dregs, Carole Ann and I have done some reflection on Jingles year.
As 2020 began, there was fair amount of consternation on both of our parts, but we resolved to keep our head into the wind and forge into the 2020 fishing season. The Spring run for stripers and even a few blues was reasonably successful, with a number of weigh-ins coming through the door.
As May rolled around, we were all thrilled for the fluke season to open. While fluking at times this year had its’ challenges, all in all, it was pretty successful from our standpoint. We had a fair number of weigh-ins and many of our “regulars” found some productive spots to bring home doormats.
When the LBISFC kicked off with the inclusion of kingfish, we saw a number of eager anglers targeting them with success. We had some stripers and the tournament was successful. The blue fish were nowhere to be found this year, fingers crossed for next year.
Ultimately none of this mattered without the support of our Jingles family of incredible customers. With help from David, Jordyn, Trevor, Nicholas and Bob, Jingles continued to fulfill your bait and tackle needs, relatively seamlessly in 2020.
We want to give a special thanks to our Beach Son, Connor Smilon and to our Uncle Tony. Without them, Jingles would not be the same. Connor’s constant help and guidance has helped immeasurably and Tony’s presence behind the scenes keeping us sane and doing a bunch of the “dirty work”, can’t be appreciated enough.
So, thanks to ALL of you for your continued support. Jingles would not be who we are without you all. Our deepest heartfelt condolences to those of our Jingles family that lost loved ones this year.
Here is to an incredible 2021 and remember to stop by and see us Christmas Eve morning.
Capt. Steve and Carole Ann
