Saltwater fishing has been pretty good. Most of the migrations had already taken place or were at the tail end so the fish had moved on. Bottom fish are still there but we're having a tough time finding them because the entire sea bottom has changed. Most of my GPS coordinates for wrecks and rock piles are useless now because everything has shifted, Sandy shook the snow globe.
We did unfortunately lose a few freshwater lakes/ponds. Three of the ponds I fished regularly were over run by saltwater then emptied by the receding tides. Those will take some time to restore.
