"The big blues are back," exalted Grumpy hisself from Grumpy's Bait & Tackle telling of the yellow eyed gators to 15-plus pounds that are terrorizing the suds. In the mix are schoolies and a few keeper stripers, like the 9-pound Grumpy Clam glomming linesider sanded by Jay H. John Benskin also beat a bass weighing 13.7 pounds and brother John went a almost 2 pounds better, beaching a linesider that weighed 15.6 pounds. Chris Updike soaked chunks of Grumpy Bunker to seduce blues weighing 9.9 pounds and 16.65 pounds, with cut mullet the ticket for a pair of 35-inch choppers beached by Joe Csenteri. The new store hours are 4:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 4:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.
