Ørsted Breaks Ground in OC – So What’s Up at IBSP?
How much heavy equipment is being brought into Island Beach State Park, is it related to industrial offshore wind cabling, and will any of this work impact access for surfcasters this fall? These are the questions we asked the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) press office on Monday afternoon, and nearly 72 hours later The Fisherman Magazine has still had no response back from the “slow-walkers and jive-talkers” in Trenton; government transparency is clearly a thing of the past in this administration! First, we kick off this week’s video forecast with a look at false albacore and a spotlight on the weekend weather, an Open Boat look at upcoming tournaments and events, while we also root around the outback waters to hopefully get in “lee” of Lee! The latest look at The Fisherman’s Dream Boat Leaderboard, South Jersey sheepshead on the prowl, and George returns with the Pocono Outdoors update. The final segment this week covers active work being done for Ørsted’s Ocean I project in Ocean City with exclusive video by Thom Lee (@thomleevideos) of civil disobedience during Ørsted’s literal “groundbreaking.”
