Day 9 and still no power and no LIPA truck in sight…

I hope most of our readers have got their juice back and are starting to put their lives back together. I’ve heard that my kids will go to school tomorrow. That is cool, some sense of normalcy. My son is already stressing about missing out on school work…who am I kidding. He has been stressing out since the day one. Must have got his smarts from his mother.

Access…there is still a lot of fishing left according to…well ,me. There are fish still up in Cape Cod Canal, still in Montauk rips. But if you are living on Long Island or New Jersey you will have a hard time getting to the water to cast you line. These areas have been particularly hard hit, in some places water has breached the barrier islands, in other case the strict curfew is in place to guard against looters. Yes, it will be hard but not impossible. With a  little research, you can still find a place to wet a line. For those of you interested in such things, I understand that Montauk 4×4 road has been reopened.

Let me get this out of the way. The winner of our last two giveaways, another thing Sandy precluded us from finishing on time.

I sent the book to Saltwater Edge, LI Outdoorsman, River’s End, Saltwaters Tackle, Fisherman’s Line and Surfland via UPS yesterday. I assume, they should have it today. It is also in our online store and Amazon. We will do something special to help out those in need in few days but first I need to get my juice back…and get the furnace going. This burning shit in fireplace to get warm is getting old…although I have no lack of books to burn 🙂

    My Prayers go out to ALL of you who live by the shore. No power, no light, no heat, and now this friggin’ snow! It’s cold out baby.
    Just try to remember the guy who was angry because he had no shoes, and then saw the guy who had no feet. Hang in there guys.
