FISHING FRIDAY: Blues swarming local waterways
It's funny what leads to some of our favorite moments on the water. Last Friday, I had set aside some time to help my neighbor fix her computer that's been on the fritz since she returned to Long Beach Island from Florida. But, to quote Seinfeld, yada yada yada, the computer cleanup was put off to another date. I used the time I had set aside to kill two birds with one stone: charge my boat's battery to full power (after its long winter's nap) with a lengthy run up Barnegat Bay, and fulfill the promise I made to all of you folks that I would check out the channels that lead to Barnegat Inlet and report the results. The results are mainly positive (mind the pun on the battery charging joke). I made my way to Barnegat Inlet in Double Creek …

Both the party boat crowd and shore-based locals getting in on the action
As local anglers try their collective hands at spring fishing after a tough winter all around, the striped bass seem to be cooperating as water temperatures slowly rise. Starting in the northern reaches of this column's publication area, the crew of the Big Mohawk out of Belmar finished their blackfish season this week and decided to dabble in the bass fishery on Tuesday. The result: everyone on board got their limit of stripers. "I know that is what so many of you have been waiting to hear," Capt. Chris wrote on the boat's website. The boat, which sails 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, had a similarly good day Thursday after taking Wednesday off. Few reports came in from the suds in the Manasquan and Point Pleasant areas, but anecdotally, anglers …

Charleston and Lexington coming to Lakewood.
A road trip that started with two wins at Greenville took a turn for the worst for the Lakewood BlueClaws as the Asheville Tourists and mother nature made for a messy swing through the southern half of the South Atlantic League. After Greenville won the last game of a three game set 12-1 Asheville won the first game of their series in a 14-10 thriller. A rain storm then rolled through the area canceling not only Saturday's game but a double dip on Sunday. The teams played a doubleheader on Monday with Asheville winning both games before the team returns home for seven games against Charleston and Lexington. First pitch on Wednesday is scheduled for 6:35 against the RiverDogs. It will also be a Kentucky Derby Preview Night and a chance to…

Let us know if the right steps were taken to fix the program, which was revealed to be in debt after "mismanagement"
Parents and officials at a recent Manchester American Youth Football meeting agreed to form a new governing board to work toward fixing the organization that was revealed to be in debt. Manchester's program has been in disarray recently — its finances are in question and some cheer parents wanted to form a separate recreation group, citing issues with AYF. "All I can say today is your organization has $576 in the bank," said Craig Karahuta, president of the New Jersey AYF Jersey Shore Conference, who led the meeting. Did the leadership do the right thing? Let us know in the poll and in the comments.

Parents and organizers express desire to fix program, which was revealed to be in debt after "mismanagement"
Parents and officials at a Manchester American Youth Football meeting Monday night agreed to form a new governing board to work toward fixing the organization that was revealed to be in debt. Manchester's program has been in disarray recently — its finances are in question and some cheer parents wanted to form a separate recreation group, citing issues with AYF. After a public meeting Monday night led by AYF regional leadership, Manchester residents appeared eager to rectify the concerns. "All I can say today is your organization has $576 in the bank," said Craig Karahuta, president of the New Jersey AYF Jersey Shore Conference, who led the meeting. It appears that, between $16,000 in debt and player fees, the organization is down $24,…

NJSIAA subcommittee rules against disabled student's request to keep playing football
An eligibility subcommittee of the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association – the state's governing body for high school sports – has denied a high school football placekicker with autism the chance to play for another year. Anthony Starego, a member of the Brick Dragons varsity team, rose to fame last year after his success kicking field goals went viral online and in the media. Starego is 18 years old and will be 19 next football season, but because of his disability will remain in high school until age 21. Normally, NJSIAA rules do not permit students over age 18 who have played sports for eight semesters to continue playing if they remain in high school. His father, Ray Starego, has argued his son's ability to play on the …
