Trouble with Contact Forms

My apologies to anyone who has tried to reach me recently through the contact form here. The company I had used previously is no longer operational? Or something. Anyway , I have an alternate now , we'll see how it works. I may change it over the next few weeks , or I may not. I should probably take a few minutes to write my own code , but I've been busy and these sites are an easy solution that saves me a lot of headaches. The whole affair is driving me crazy really, so I have an email listed also. I'll probably get millions of Spam emails , but also a few honest inquiries. I look forward to hearing from you!

As a favor to me , if you ever see anything strange or things like this not working , please let me know! Thanks!

Thanks for reading , too. Most of you will never know how much I appreciate my audience on the web , but I am truly thankful for everyone who takes time to read what I post. I am humbled by the response I have received over the last few years.

Have a great weekend!

Pier Fishing , In Pictures

Most of these made the rounds on social media in some form , now they are going up here for posterity. I made it out fishing for a few days at the beginning of the month , nothing to brag about , but it was a much needed break from the Summer doldrums. Enjoy!

Clearnose Skate. I get one of these almost every time I go.

A good place to twist your ankle...

Busy , Busy , but I did manage a few short flounder.

One of the busiest boats out of Rudee Inlet.

Good Morning!

Looking South from the pier

Spadefish!

Stingray!

Check out the barb on this bad boy...


Where is my fishing only area? 

You'll notice the last picture is a "Surfing Area Only". I didn't go fishing there , but I did have a rather unpleasant run in with surfers at the pier. I don't pull my casts up short , and I managed to drop one about a foot away from one guys head. One of the girl surfers proceeded to give me a good cussing , and one of my neighbors on the pier called the police. It was so much unnecessary drama , especially when you consider that these clowns have a designated surfing area that they do not have to pay to use , while us pier fishermen have to pay to play. It's unfortunate. Eventually , I'll probably end up hitting a surfer with a sinker , not on purpose of course , but rather because they can't follow the rules and stay 300' away from the pier. It's a sad state of affairs when you consider the number of people who have died when a wave pushed a surfer into a pier piling. It happens almost every year here on the East Coast.

Have a good weekend!

Emergency Hangover Cure!

First off , I haven't been hacked nor am I posting affiliate links or any of that other crazy stuff. I truly have found an effective way of recovering quickly from the worst hangovers , virtually pain free and instantaneous.

It has everything you need to get over your hangover quickly , after even the biggest beach parties. Protein , B-Complex Vitamins , Zinc , and a healthy dose of Salt to get you back on your feet quickly.

Click through for the rest , I promise there is no gimmick , and this has helped me several times...

Virginia Beach Fourth of July Fireworks , 2013

I spent most of last week on the pier , managed to shoot a little video in between fish on Thursday night. Think of it as an implied sex scene from a cheesy '80's movie - minus the rockets , and clips of trains disappearing into tunnels.

Yeah , I was pretty excited to get some time on the water.



Have a great weekend!

From The Vault

A few pictures I found on an old SD card in my GoPro :








I posted these to my G+ page last night. For some reason , it was exciting for me to find these on the SD card. Brought back a lot of fond memories of good times with the people who are most important to me , and places I love.


With the exception of the two gnarly cloud pictures , these were taken at Chincoteague , Assateague or Virginia Beach. The coast of Virginia , in all of it's various forms , will always be one of my favorite places to vacation.

Now it's time for me to go make some more memories with the family! Enjoy the upcoming holiday weekend!

Have a great week!
