Benefitting From Geological Events

Long Island’s north shore formed in the retreat of the Wisconsin ice sheet during the last glacial period. The boulders left behind sometimes expose their tops in the falling tide. Geologists call them glacial erratics but Pete the dockmaster called the bigger ones elephants.

Either way as long as you don’t trip and bust your shins or shear off an outboard skeg it’s a hell of a playground and why is it only people from Maryland call them rockfish?
