Default Mid Coast Sicky Information




Fishing Columns

Newark Star Ledger Al Ristori
Asbury Park Press
Edit** The asbury Park Press link appears outdated.
here is another newer one

The Coast Star, a weekly out of Manasquan on Thursdays, has a column by Jim Freeda of Shore Catch Guide Service. His guide service splits up in the Raritan Bay area and Manasquan/ Barneget areas. The following link will get you to the Coast Star. http://thecoaststar.com/

Then you have to download the whole issue (18m it's big) to see the column
(the link for the download is on the lower left of the webpage.. This week, the Dec 21st edition, his column is on page 62 of 76. I like his stuff better then Ristori. Also he'll mention plugs, pix, etc that is in his Shore Catch website and helps you out even more.

Forgot to include Shore Catch giude website, if you don't have it.
