04.10.14 Wonder where all that pumped sand goes??????

     Tonight I'll be doing a presentation at the Spring Lake Liveliners meeting in Spring Lake Heights. It starts at 730 so if you're in the area stop down. Went out to scout their "home waters" so I knew what things were looking like. While coming over the bridge I couldn't help but notice the line of sand traveling south to north outside of the Shark River Inlet. That's why Sandy Hook needs to be dredged every now and again.

This sand is coming from the beach nourishment work in Belmar currently happening at 16th Avenue. Don't think for a minute that the bass that come back year after yer to the same places won't find huge changes on the beaches this year, if they can make their way through the sand to find their foraging spot.
