Things are not looking good for Seabright or the Fairbanks right now. Hopefully everyone stays safe and recovers quickly after the storm.

Is this still going to happen? The devastation to the coast is just incredible. Feel Linda weird going there to fish when there is probably not much left.

Down the coast at Island beach State Park things are surely very bad and may not be accessible for weeks or months. The ferris wheel in Seaside Heights - a long time landmark for surf fishermen - has been completely destroyed and apparently washed out to sea as of recent reports this morning.
I'm getting a bit concerned for John at Betty and Nicks tackle shop, which is located right by the ferris wheel. It seemed he was going to ride out the storm and he hasn't posted recently. I don't check Facebook - maybe he's just out of power.
Hope all is well.

Good luck with that. Normal northeasters stir up the ocean enough that it takes 2-3 days for good fishing to return....for anything!

I'd vote to just wait and see for a few days.
Wouldn't surprise me if many hotels at the shore that are damaged will just close until springtime. Barrier islands and Sandy Hook may be off limits to tourists for a long time too. Will have to wait and see.

That stinks but understandable. Would have been my first fly fishing the salt opportunity.

It's gonna be a pain to get around down there. Good luck trying to find a place to stay. Fishing should come back. I hope at least. It's gonna be tough For the fly fisherman. Bait is gone. We might get sand eels but that is unlikely. The beaches are gonna have some great new soft structure. Jetties will open up and there will be some deeper water at our feet.

As for the jam. Does anyone know the status of sandy hook? Can't wait to see it. But that if we can even drive on it. I feel a day trip is probably the best bet. And maybe even changing the location a little further south and maybe even later in the season. I know cape may has good late season fishing. That being said I'm still game for what ever. But let's see if it is even reasonable to go down any time soon. Personally I think it's gonna be at least two weeks.

The Hook is a Federal Park and it has a Coast Guard base on it so they petty much have to make travel possible on the base . And almost all of beach replenishment from central NJ on up is based out off the base on SH . I'm just worried about the hotel .

Also the fish are migrating from the north which didn't get hit by the full force of the storm so I don't think it will stop them from going south. The fish are coming and I will be there

No I think there will be fish. But fish like bait and if bait is not in the area it's gonna be hard to find them. Kinda like summer striper fishing. The fish are there but you got to find the bait. We'll see.
