i can't say what the target may have been, but what i saw in the net was a couple dozen jumping mullet...nothing more thankfully.

but it does happen today, and i'm sure if the haul had been something other, then netters wouldn't have been complaining. damn rednecks.

Fred was a good egg. I built the rod holders in his store when Andy did the renovation a few years back. I enjoyed listening to his stories about the old days. He never quite got over losing Azie. Hopefull, they're setting new world records together again.

Now I'm not sure if it's the same Fred. I'm talking about Fred from Staten Island, owned Fred's B&T on Amboy Road.

This was Freddie Gartner, nicknamed Doodlebug for his favorite method of fishing. He was from Belmar NJ and member of the NJ Striped Bass Fishermans HOF and Shark River Surf Anglers.
One of the pioneers of modern bridge fishing.

Asie Espanek took a 64 pounder off of staten Island in the 80's. Its still a SI. record. Thats asie with fred at Lemon Creek
Add another Kudo to Asie - Two years prior to the 64 she captured and released a 54 pound fish. She caught the fish on her boat which was equipped with a large live well, put the fish in the well and ran back into Sheepshead Bay weighed it at Stella Maris and with a major league crowd watching released it into the bay.
