Been trying to think that if Jim is right....would that be better fishing SB or not. Me thinks that the break would give the fish quicker and more direct access to the flats. Jim's right....it's going to be very interesting to see what the results will be. Makes me wonder if the point to the right of the shuttle drop off will grow as well towards Morris and eventually make the original tub a landlocked pond.

Also, some good news on the arthritic casting thumb and wrist issue I've had the last 2 seasons. I'm only sharing this because last year 3 other guys (don't know their names) expressed to me that they have the same issue.
I found a cooperative MD, who sent me to a hand specialist OT and today they fabricated (molded) a custom rigid plastic brace for me....tried it out in the backyard....no pain, no restriction in casting! The OT was impressive.....assessed the arthritic joints, assessed the movement that caused pain, asked me to demonstate the movement I needed and where the rod needed to fit in my palm and designed and made the brace on the spot. Impressive to say the least!
Did feel a bit foolish going in for the appt. with the butt section of my Sage, given that everyone else there looked like they just got hit by a car, but as the MD said..."no reason not to enjoy quality of life". So....to you others in the same situation, there IS a solution.
