Another year of Jersey Shore fluking is in the books.
“It’s over Johnny. It’s over.”
So says Col. Trautman to John Rambo in the closing minutes of First Blood while holed up inside the battered police headquarters in a small town in Washington State. C’mon, you know the movie; it’s a classic! And it was our first introduction to Rambo in a fictional northwestern town someplace north of Portland, OR and south of Seattle, WA according to lines in the script. Kind of ironic to think about now after the riotous summer of 2020, huh?
But indeed, this year’s fluke action has come to an end at the Jersey Shore, with no word yet as to what we’ll see in terms of season, size and bag for 2021. With a little bit of Rambo in each of us, anglers know that “Nothing is over,” and “You just don’t turn it off.” That said, here are a few recent catches reported just before the big lady belted out her final notes, and just as you and I are preparing for the fall sequels of porgy and bass.
