glad to hear you had good q, babe.
well played, andy and sir loin.
we had a great day of fishing down at the manasquan inlet in joisey, then a really good dinner at spikes fish market and restaurant in point pleasant beach.
we caught 25 snappers (immature bluefish - i know you are but what am i?
) in just about 2 and a half hours. it was one of those days where you could spit on a hook and catch somethin'.
then we went to a local fish market/dive restaurant; the new jersey equivalent of a new england clam shack with a few indoor picnic tables.
our dinners were outstanding!
we started with new england and manhattan clam chowders. my manhattan blows theirs away, but their new england clam chowder was one of the best i've had in my life. it was so thick you could turn the bowl 90 degrees for a second or two without spillage - even as hot as it was, and it was chock full of clams, potatoes, corn, and celery.
then, my boy had mini crabcakes (meh, imo) and coleslaw, dw had a giant brazillian lobster tail broiled to perfection with coleslaw, and i had a wonderful dish of shrimp, scallops, mussels, clams, and lump crabmeat over linguini in clam sauce.
for a fishing dive, this place rocks. no wonder so many people wait an hour for a table so far away from the beach.
no traffic on the way home completed the day.
