8/17 - Night Feed at Sandy Hook
I wasn't there, but someone I work with was at Sandy Hook last night around 8 PM and from what he said there was a nice shore feed going on.
He asked me this morning if it is unusual for bait fish to beach themselves. I asked if the bait fish were alive. He said some were. I asked if he saw bait fish jump from the water to the shore. He said yes. I asked if he saw or heard any large splashes. He said yes, and that right after he would see the bait jumping on the shore.
I tried to get him to describe the predators, but got little, so I don't know if it was bass, blues or what.
He said it lasted about an hour but there was a lot of bait on the beach when he got there, so he guessed it had been going on for a while before 8 PM.
He said it was at the "first beach" (I don't know what this means having never been to Sandy Hook).
He also said he had a fishing rod in his car (just bought it this year to involve his kids in outdoor activities), but didn't realize what he was seeing was a feed.
I told him NEXT TIME CAST!!!!!!!
Oh well, wish I had been there, but it was fun to hear of a good old push the bait against the shore feed going on.
