We will be having the second annual Sandy Hook Jam on 11-11 this year . I don't want any scheduling conflicts this year with the people who like to fish for the stockies. We will probably be staying at the Fairbanks again this year more details will be posted as we get closer to Nov. The hotel has a very nice restaurant right next store that has a OK beer selection and fine Italian cuisine . So add this date to you calendars people . We had a blast last year hopefully we will have a better one this year . I'm looking forward to see how some of you have progressed since the last time I seen you wet a line.

Sounds like a plan. Hopefully 2012 will see another great fall run like 2011. Springtime this year might be decent too.

I never did ANYTHING like this. Where is this at? What can I expect to pay for the license and accomedations?

What kind of equipment would I need? I have a 9'8wt, that's my largest rod.

By all means give it a try. It will definitely broaden your fly fishing perspective and you'll have fun with your PAFF buddies even if the fish don't bite.
The location is in northern New Jersey - you'll be fishing right on the beach. I'm not sure how far - it would be closer for you, probably in the range of a three hour drive. You won't need a license (this could change) but will need to register online. You can use your 8WT. An 8WT is on the light side - most striper fishermen use 9 or 10Wts but an 8WT will suffice. Accommodations are up to you - it's off season and with some searching you should be able to find a cheap hotel.
Take some time to check out some of the salt water threads here on PAFF as there is lots of info on fishing the NJ shore.

That's plenty big enough.

Thanks Dave (not the farmer...who in true form only offers humor and no real advice haha!)

Do I have to make one of those stripping basket thingies? I can make one out of a dish washing basin, right? haha!

I would love to try this out. If there is no license cost and its w/in a 3 hour drive, I see no reason why I couldn't get up for at least Saturday.
