Jim Miller, Jesse Calhoun, Matt Bejsiuk and Dave DiMario with some of the striped bass and bluefish they caught recently while fishing aboard Tail Dancer with Jim Fowler at the helm. Cathy Crossland of Bayside Marina reports the shop was busy weighing in fish this week in spite of the "dead sea," as she called it. The Bayside Bounty (boat division) and the Veterans Tournament were won by the same person, Melissa, with a 33-pound, 46-inch striper. All three people on the boat were veterans.

In second place for the Veterans Tournament was Rich Quinones with a 24.9-pound, 42-inch fish. The beach tournament is still open; Rich caught his fish on clam on the south end but wasn't preregistered. You have to be registered win.

The Gold and Silver Mine- Beware of ‘good deals’ touted by telemarketers

The Gold and Silver Mine- Beware of ‘good deals’ touted by telemarketers The Gold and Silver Mine- Beware of ‘good deals’ touted by telemarketers I never cease to be amazed that people who do not normally buy or invest in coins buy coins online, through newspaper ads, telemarketers or TV infomercials and expect to receive an immediate profit. Some of the items that are offered through these venues will never be worth the purchase price, let alone turn a profit. And when I ask people why they purchased the coins I never receive a direct answer.

I have seen it all (I think; actually I hope so). The lucky purchasers are those who at least get something of value, even though they grossly overpay. One example that stands out is an individual who got hooked by a telemarketer who would call when “Something special just came in and we’re giving you first opportunity to buy it.”

Brigantine catches of the week Nov. 7

Blake and Willie with a pair of stripers at Bayside. Blake and Willie with a pair of stripers at Bayside. Cathy from Bayside reports that the winds were relentless last weekend but apparently didn't scare the fish away. Bayside regulars Blake and Willie went out Monday with some not-so-fresh bunker (left over from before the storm) and came an hour later with a pair of nice stripers from the old bridge, one measuring 33 inches and the other 31. Then they went back to their usual tog fishing.

And it's been quite a tog season, especially at low tide. Stripers seem to be favoring the top of the tide. We got in our first shipment of Tactical Angler tackle. The poppers are like nothing else, and the sub darters are awesome in rough surf.

BRIGANTINE–The day after municipal elections, members of Brigantine City Council passed an often debated ordinance, 15-2014, that bans smoking on municipal property. Notably, the golf course and beaches were exempted. 

Residents attending this and previous meetings have generally expressed support for the restriction. Charlie Miller, chairman of the Municipal Alliance for the Prevention of Drug and Alcohol Abuse, gave a statement in support of the ban.
