Your right. I hunt the Florida West coast, but one day I went to Cocoa to give it a try. I got pulled around by the current and knocked around by the waves and 15 minutes later I was hunting the wet sand for the rest of the day. I had to laugh when I read your post because I did exactly what you see people do.

Like Debbie said there a number of lake's that only allow hunting after the season is over it's not uncommon to see that many at several location here in NJ. As far as a normal hunting day around central jersey its not uncommon to see 6 or 8 guys and girls hunting the same beach at once. Even at 3am you'll run into 3 or 4 hunters, and before work you'll see 3 or 4 at 6am. You can just take a few seconds and weed out the non threats and hunt right behind them. I reported last year that two families popped up on the beach while I was hunting 4 adults the 3 kids.The 2 men and 2 boys had Excaliburs the two ladies had whites BHID and the little girl had a ace 250. Add scoops and that's about 8000 bucks for family outing. Who said the economy is bad! LOL!

Considering the size of the coil. Then take the area of beach and area of water form beginning to waist deep. I think it is safe to say we haven't scratched the service along the Atlantic. Not sure bit I guess ponds and lakes could be picked over fairly well. I hunt very popular beaches. I see and talk to many hunters but never a problem of to many of us.

I've seen crowds of hunters in FL but not Jersey. FT myers beach can get crowded. In jersey, not counting one or two exceptions in AC, most i've seen at one time is about a half dozen. Most aren't working a specific beach. They are walking a lane and are out of sight within minutes. On the beaches I hunt that lane is about 9 miles long, so plenty of room for us grid the beach types.

There are a lot of waist deep to ankle deep ones - more have joined me from waist to chin - I got a hookah and a snuba and can go out even farther - you will never see a bunch of deep water hunters

Never say Never. When the beaches and the waist to chest begin to look like the picture in the original post, then the die hards will turn to hookah and snuba as well and then you will see a "bunch of deep water hunters" unless the economy improves and precious metal prices fall to where most people won't see it worth the effort to hunt for them.
