Re: Daily Vis report thread

I went on the Barnegat Light jetty yesterday Sunday at high tide. The viz was poor, maybe 3 ft. I don't get it because the pools of water that accumulate on the other side of the jetty at high tide showed clear water. The Bay water was also clear in some areas. So why was the water in the inlet so turbid, like milky white at 20 ft ?
To me it could be just silk and sand in suspension, after a strong disturbance. But what disturbance ?
It is true that il looked like the entire US navy was anchored at the mouth of the inlet for fishing, I never seen so many boats there, but small fishing boats, not capable of disturbing the bottom. So I don't know.

I just saw Togs zipping fast in front of my nose.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

Any words of advice on diving post dental extraction? Had a back molar yanked and theres a hole there for a few weeks , didnt know if diving 20-30 ft would have an effect or cause possible dry socket. Thanks and hope to hear back

Re: Daily Vis report thread

did somebody go in Barnegat inlet today Saturday, or if given a chance, can somebody have a look at the inlet and report ?

The weather marine reports a rough sea with 3-4ft waves today and same thing for tomorrow, in addition to rain. I'd like to know if the waves are that bad in the inlet. I don't mind the rain but 4 ft waves are too much. 2-3ft doable, although not much fun.

Thanks,
Ric

Re: Daily Vis report thread

Bad viz yesterday at high tide in the inlet at Barnegat light. Fish must be there, judging from the entire navy fleet fishing in the mouth of the inlet, and the many reelers packed on the tip of the jetty. But they were impossible to see to me. Water was cold though, but milky white in shallow depth, dark green in depth. I went a few times in that dark depth but couldn't see better, basically I couldn't even see the tip of the spear.
I wonder how is the viz outside of the inlet.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

Same bad viz again at high tide Barnegat Light jetty today Friday after Thanksgiving. I doubt it's gonna be cleared up for the Week end. I have a video of last Nov 2016 in perfectly clear water. What's going on ?
And tons of fish , most of the reellers are now packed near the tip of the jetty.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

I went the other day, it was like 2ft, by the rocks... Deep it was zero. We collectively saw two tog. How was the viz bad, but tons of fish? We're heading back down tomorrow...

I'll be making my way into the mess at the tip. That's where the biggest tog should be congregated. Won't hurt for a chance at a slob striper either...

This is why you are clueless impala. Your intentionally going to make your way into a mess of fisherman on the tip. Real smart.... If they are there already stay further west up the rocks would be the common sense thing to do. Away from fisherman.... You are going to piss people off that were there first thus giving divers already even more of a bad wrap. Unless you Kno the guys fishing the tip and they are ok with you making a drift past them and they are ok casting outside of your gear you shouldn't just go past them and have the "screw you I'm coming by attitude...they will move and reel up for me.... Because that is what you are saying you are going to do correct?

Now if you get on the tip first light and noone is there and you do quick,short drifts . You have dibs. Your the first one to the spot. The tip. .But your saying your intentionally going into the mess on the tip. Id expect more from a guy who comes off on this site as soo knowledgeable to not pull a dick move like that.

Daily Vis report thread

Duh duh duh, Dmill to the rescue with another helpful, insightful post!

First off, I talk to all the guys fishing before I jump in and let them know my intentions so we can work together. Hell, most of the fisherman that are regulars down there know me.

You literally know nothing about me and since you're so active in the community, you probably never will. So you're better off not making assumptions and always sounding like an asshat.

The reelers are going to make sushis out of you...just kidding. I personally avoid crossing lines and so I try to stay about in the same spot. I let myself with the current for a dive, then come back. But it doesn't hurt to make a sign to the reelers if you have to cross a line, usually they understand and pull their line.
The biggest Tog I saw yesterday was on the jetty, it was maybe ~24 inches (edit : actually more like 18 inches ~45 cm), or something like that. Forgive my imperial unit suckiness.

I can dive in the low light green but honestly I cannot stay as I find it oppressive. There is nothing to see. If there was a fish at 3 feet from me I wouldn't see it. But I do it in hope of a Strip Bass...
Good luck to you.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

I'd like to go Sunday very early but if the water is still soup it's not worth it.
