Super Storm Sandy
Please visit www.SouthShoreLiftProject.com so we can prevent this magnitude of damage from happening again.

There are are many tide prediction apps for the iPhone and Android and believe me I have tried many of them. I now have a current favorite and it's simply called High Tide and it can be found on the Google play store and Apple app store. I like this app for it's speed of finding tidal information for you current location. This app uses your phone's location and finds the closest tidal prediction station without having to go through a search process or scrolling through a map then clicking around. Read More

New Trophy Tackle Location
Hurricane Sandy was devastating to the south shore of Long Island. The flood waters of the storm damaged the location of Trophy Tackle beyond repair. Rather then give up Trophy Tackle quickly rebuilt their business in a new location on Long Island. This new retail space is over 4000 square feet and may be the largest offshore and inshore outfitter in the north east. The new address is 434 Rutgers Road, West Babylon, New York 11704. Their phone number is still the same 631.274.7042 as well as their website, www.tunafishtackle.com
Potential World Record Yellowfin Tuna caught aboard The ExcelWorld Record Yellowfin?
A yellowfin tuna caught by John Petruescu in Mexican waters aboard the San Diego-based Excel is expected by the crew to become the largest yellowfin ever landed on rod and reel.
The Excel, which had been fishing at remote Hurricane Bank (960 miles southwest of San Diego), will arrive atFisherman's Landing early Sunday morning and only then will the official weight be known.
However, in a satellite telephone interview, skipper Justin Fleck revealed that the yellowfin "taped out" at 459 pounds, not the 400-pound mark that has been shared all week on the vessel's Facebook page.
