Not the kind of streak anyone wants to be on. I’m riding a cold streak in the home waters. None of the typical surface action has materialized like normal. But what’s worse, the fallback structure and rips that produce with blind casting aren’t producing (One 14-inch striper to show for the last three outings). Time to get in the car and go home. Do you think that KFC is still open?
Where are the gators? Now’s been the time for them to wreak havoc in the bays during fits of ruthless surface action. But they’ve gone deep, or disappeared. Sonsofbitches. The choices are laid out: Run east again or south to the ocean side, but that’s asking for a triple digit fuel bill. It’s been six-weight days pulling schoolie bass off shoreline structure and waiting for something big to show itself. The Forks are calling…
…There’s a manatee in Stony Brook.* *[Editor's Note: Chill out, angry Vegans, it's a joke.]

From Newsday, new Governor David Paterson is expected to reject the Broadwater Liquified Natural Gas Terminal for Long Island Sound. From the article: Paterson is also expected to say that it would not guarantee low-cost natural gas for Long Island, that it would disrupt commercial and recreational fishing and that it would, in essence, turn over a section of the Sound to a private company and exclude the general public.
