So today was the start of Trout in the Classroom throughout New Jersey. This morning I drove up to the Pequest Hatchery with Paul to pick up trout eggs for our 24 schools. We had several volunteers from the JSTU chapter and the Freehold Conservation District help deliver the eggs. I delivered eggs to two area schools and the kids were excited to finally get underway.
In fishing news, I got several calls that fish were caught early this morning up and down Monmouth County. Big blues and keeper stripers were had off the front of the rocks. One fly guy said the fish were out of reach and guys got them on plugs. Around noon I took a ride down to Asbury Park to find a flat ocean at a very low new moon tide. It's a great time to go out and scout your local haunt. The below image is from 8th Ave in Asbury Park. Making notes or remembering beach structure will always give you an advantage when tides are different.
