We really like when we get reports back & pictures make it even nicer. Towards the end of June we had the pleasure of meeting a friendship duo Wayne & Jim. Wayne was kind enough to say these words~Good morning Sue, John & Holden, 
We came to Surf City for a family reunion, but I also came with the intensions of catching some fish.  That's why I call it 'catching' and not fishing.  And all three of you are the reasons we enjoyed ourselves so much on the shores of Surf City catching our different fish after the sun AND moon cooled off in the ocean!  The blues were fun to land and certainly quite different than landing them from a boat 25 miles off shore.  Perhaps with a bit more practice, we could go for their striper cousins!   Jim spent the last 20+ years in Alaska claiming he worked for a living, but we all know he spent years tossing his fishing line into the beautiful waterways of the state.  My wife & I are from Pittsburgh, Pa, and we have been blessed to have put our fishing lines in waters(salt & fresh) all over the USA & Canada at different times. Thanks for your gift of enthusiasm & passion for the sport and for the use of your equipment and cleaning station on the morning after.  We hope to see you next year about the same time when we stop in to see your smiles, check on what's running and pick up the necessities to go 'catching' once again. God bless.  Wayne

If Wayne & Jim are reading this-please know the pleasure was all ours. We love what we do & we are who we are because of you & everyone else who steps through our doors. We are truly blessed. It was so much fun getting to know the two of you. Look forward to seeing you again. Until we meet again, keep smiling & enjoying life, after all each day is another day in paradise!

Saturday August 1st-    What? August? Really? Stores are filled with BacK to School Supplies. When it actually becomes time that I shop for what my kiddos need, the stores are all out. The solution is not for me to go earlier, HMPF. Yesterday took me off the island to North Jersey. What should have been a 5 hour max round trip drive took 9 hours. I thought I was playing it smart avoiding the drive today "Turn Over Day". Nope. Too late to make our  reservations for our dinner reservations at The Gables. So glad yesterday is behind me. 

Today started on a positive note. Woke up to hear that Francis Hettler got a 5lb 6oz fluke off the surf yesterday in Harvey Cedars. And when I walked into the store there was Billy with his 13 lb 6 oz striper that he got this morning on bunker in Harvey Cedars.
