10.27.10 Delivery of eggs for Trout in the Classroom


Today was delivery day of thousands of trout eggs to participating schools throughout New Jersey for TIC, Trout in the Classroom. It's a program co-run by the state out of the Pequest Trout Hatchery and several groups, including the Jersey Shore Chapter of Trout Unlimited, of which I am the new TIC Coordinator. Duane and Ken made the trip up to the Pequest Trout Hatchery to pick up the eggs and then several volunteers met them on the Parkway where we picked up our eggs. I went to four schools delivered the eggs, food, and filters to get the teachers and kids going. This past May I went with several schools to do their fish release in Allaire State Park into the Manasquan River.


At night I stopped by Allenhurst around 6 pm , low tide S-SW wind, a few guys catching nothing.
