August 25, Wicked weather

As you probably expect, the coastal weather here has been exceptionally ugly since Monday. Today is actually worse. It’s pissing down horizontal rain, and the top wind this morning has been 44 mph. So not very good for fishing. In fact, the only thing we’ve heard about in Joppa Flats is a 35 foot sailboat that ripped from it’s mooring and now lays right in the center of Joppa.

    I would not complain about the heavy rains and wind. We sportsmen/women might just get lucky and have those 2 prima donna plovers wash away. Then the parking lots would not be taken over by the birders and their wardens sitting at the beach front. Boy, I and anyone of us would love to have a sign at any of the lots that say “RESERVED FOR FISHERMEN / WOMEN”

    Lots 2 and 3 remain closed…for the “non existent 2 birds”!!!! A new precedent is being set…meaning these lots will be regularly closed for the entire summer !!!

    I think we should expect the lots to remain closed till September 1. It’s just the way things seem to be going. Bummer. But I’m pretty sure those plovers are gone now. The tide was way up on the beach during the storm.

    The Refuge is a lost cause, they can and will do whatever they want. What we should be worried about is the stranglehold that they have on Sandy Point STATE park. When the Feds get a grip on that then we are in trouble, the state has already turned over much of the patrolling detail and Plover nesting area enforcement to the Refuge and they closed off quite a bit of the river side for birds. As soon as they have the power to close that down for the summer they will.
