Hurricane Hermine has gotten the Atlantic all riled up, causing pretty huge waves to smash up on shore. Red flags will be flying above many Atlantic beaches for the next few days as the hurricane progresses. Today I visited Sagg Main beach with my family in Saggaponic, New York. As we neared the beach, we could see a red flag flying over the parking lot. This we expected since there was a hurricane taking place some miles off the coast. Surprisingly, it was mostly sunny when we arrived. When we had finally parked and made our way on foot to the beach, the waves appeared to have much more power and force than usual. The Atlantic was showing off its potential and capability, and most of the people were respecting that by not even getting close to the waves. There were a few dare Devils that were joking around by the surf, but one of them learned a valuable lesson when she was nearly dragged out by the current.
Waves smashing on shore
On the beach, kids were playing around in a big saltwater pond that had been formed by the waves. Others were sitting behind the pond admiring the waves as they smashed on shore and at sea. Lifeguards were busy patrolling the area to make sure no one was sucked up by the strength of the ocean.
It is snapper season! They are finally biting. They are my personal favorite fish to catch. They are easy and fun. Use a snapper jig and cast out! We have not gone for snappers yet because of our busy schedule, but we will soon. (Most likely tomorrow.) If you are in Sag Harbor, just cast out at Long Beach or off of Barcelona Point. Basically any where off a beach or off a boat in Sag Harbor is fine. If you are not in Sag Harbor, but somewhere in the North, East coast, give it a try! Good luck, and I HOPE YOU CATCH SOME FISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the blow fish I caught about 5 days ago, fully frozen.
Yesterday I went to this beach at Shelter Island and saw about 5 baby sand sharks around the shore swimming around my legs. I tried to catch them with my net but they were too fast. I was in shock at seeing 5 baby sand sharks swimming so close to me.
