That darn global warming!

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.

That thing sticking out of the water is the remains of the concrete ship over at Sunset Beach in Cape May NJ

Makes you glad to be inside with the heat and fire going.
The Coast Guard base is starting to freeze up too and the water rips past that area of the bay.

I've done a lot of weakfishing around the USS Atlantis,thats the name of the wreak .
50 yrs ago it sat high and proud ,in another 10-15 most people wont even know its there

you can see people on cam walking out to it ,that's a stupid chance to be taking
most of that ice in the bay is in relatively shallow water however there are deep 20'+ channels of fast moving water that move around the whole of that wreak.
if you go thru ,you wont be found

Da hawk ate my baby!!

Another problem about walking on bay ice is the tide goes out under the ice and leaves a void so if you drop through its tough to climb out of.
Not a good idea to walk out on. I know from fishing around the wreck it has some deep holes around it.
