    Capt. Andy at Riptide Bait and Tackle had a big batch of jumbo bloodworms in to the shop over the weekend available for folks wetting a line by Sunday. "We still have a couple of $50 gift cards out there for the first legal stripers to swim through the door that are caught in the Brigantine waters," he said over the weekend. By the way, we spoke with Andy recently about a "tackle swap" that he planned to host in the shop; the date is now set for March 24, a good opportunity for folks to sell off some of those old rods, reels and pieces of tackle. "We will have people in here looking to turn your old unwanted fishing gear into cash," Andy said, adding "If you are looking to clean out your old stuff and maybe even replace it with the new technology that is out there then Riptide Bait and Tackle is where you want to be on March 24." That's from 9 to 4.

    Capt. Andy at Riptide Bait and Tackle attended the big beach access meeting in Brigantine last Tuesday along with a couple of hundred other locals. If you're getting a beach permit this season, you better hurry if you want that North Brigantine access; NJDEP is issuing only 500 permits for the northernmost management area, and there are already about 150 of the permits sold thus far. Check with Andy on details, but you'll need to go to the Bass River State Forest folks to get that permit in 2018.

    Capt. Andy at Riptide Bait and Tackle said the big news around Brigantine is the status of the NJDEP decision at the north end beaches. There's an NJDEP meeting at the North School at 301 E Evans Blvd at 6 p.m. Tuesday, February 27 for those interested to learn about any buggy access changes. "Nothing on perch but I know there are stripers swimming around," Andy told us on Monday, adding "Not that I have seen any but I know they like the Brigantine waters and love my Riptide Rotters." Andy said the shop will be open on March 1 and will have bloodworms.
