Steve, I already knew most of them. Deb told me down there, if someone is making a turn, the person behind them also puts on their turn signal...
And Al, I know about Myrtle Beach, we are looking a little south of there...

Bob,

Between Garden City and Savannah is some of the prettiest coast in the world. I will need a place to stop for a layover in that area --- but I think I had best not be waiting 20 years. Can't you retire early?

Cheers,

The sea level will have greatly risen due to the fact that the polar ice caps and the Greenland glaciers have melted. My property inland will now be beach front property.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to use my front yard as the piping plovers are nesting there.

Guys going crazy over blitzes when they occur, those that know what they are doing, still fishing the same way as those that did it before them did, much as I do today. I would expect that there will be changes in tackle and such, stronger lines, more realistic looking plugs and such. However, I believe that the basic premise that we use today, find the fish, learn structure, check the tides, etc, will never change.

RAG I should have added this bit of information to your Southern survival list. If you plan to Drum fish the NC Buxton Point, the Cape Hatteras National Park Service has recommended this method for surf fishing so that you won?t disturb and be arrested for disturbing the two pairs of Piping Plovers that have taken over the Point. That?s me on the left and BIG AL on the right.
MULE.

By then people will not have any interest in fishing. Regulations, access, fear of skin cancer. Townies only fishing will have ruined all interest in fishing.

20 years from now, People will be calling for this to be a "gamefish", catch and release

HOW TO: SIMPLE SEA ROBIN FILLET

With its mild taste, abundance in local waters and eager willingness to take a baited hook, the sea robin could be the perfect inshore target species. Here is a simple way to prepare them for the table!

Expect a minimum size regulation, a season, daily bag limit. Enforcement will be even busier so that requires a new enforcement office, a janitor for that office, an accountant for the payroll.

It just shows you how bad the activity has gone, that publications have to devote pages to the pursuit of "junkfish".

I mean, at the dawn of the internet, someone came up with a web site, but now magazine's covering this?

As I used to say as a kid: "Awww, come ONNNNN" (with whiny 10 year old's voice)

I once ran into a blitz of spawners at Sandy Hook and got'em on the fly using poppers.

So, twenty years from now, there'll be a guide service advertising "flats fishing for birds"

I hope there are fish... sometimes I'm not too optimistic.
