We are into fall, with October a few days away, and the water temps are still in the mid-70s.
Summer giving way to fall is a happening that gets the local fishers and knowledgeable visitors into what many believe to be the best season of the year for fishing off, in and around South Jersey.
Fore! Here comes an encore.
A couple of super weather days combined to gift us with rare nice weekend, and that got fishers motivated.
Like many area fishers, Dave Showell had a slow spell that likely was caused by the persistent combination of heat and humidity and rain and wind.
It sits on a nice plot of land, in Mays Landing, like an old friend.
The first of the fall surf-fishing tournaments began Saturday with the 58th H.W. Shaner held on the beaches of Avalon in less than ideal conditions.
The funky weather continues, and so does some very decent summer flounder fishing.
Labor Day is not the end of summer, nor apparently the end of heat waves.
