Big Announcement

First, shop news.  Big shop news.  Soon, folks, we've got something very exciting coming up. It's big news, really big news. People have been asking, "What's Grumpys got up their sleeves this time?" Well, you're going to find out. We're making an announcement about an announcement, and let me tell you, it's going to be tremendous. Stay tuned, because soon, we're going to unveil something that's going to make a lot of people very happy. It's going to be fantastic, believe me!

We get asked a lot here at Grumpys if we clean fish.  We always had to answer no, until now.  We are going to be starting this May with a Happys Fish Cleaning service located at Grumpys Tackle.  We are currently hiring for this position. The candidate must know how to filet and skin multiple species of fish including fluke, blackfish, sea bass, sea robin, tilapia, finger mullet and skate.  Candidate must also have at least 7 fingers, one of which needs to be a thumb. Please call Ray at the shop to apply.

As far as the fishing report, it seemed the past few days the striped bass bite completely died off.  We weren’t sure what was going on, but even the bite on bloodworms dropped to a trickle of fish.  Well, our very own Sean figured it out.  The BLUEFISH ARE HERE!  They are a couple of weeks early, but after this mild winter it isn’t much of a surprise really.  He got them in the bay off Good Luck Point on Tsunami Talking Poppers.

For those who don’t know, we have some very competitive people who work here at Grumpys.  And not just for fishing, but for everything. Two of the largest competitors here are Ray and Scott.  There was a discussion about which one of those was the fastest, which eventually evolved into a bet on who will do better in the Sandy Hook Half Marathon being held at the end of the summer.  The loser has to bathe in Nair from head to toe.  Who do you think will win?  Vote here.
