Certainly before my time. Just some nice pictures. Things were simpler in the sport then.

Great pics. Thanks for posting these. I'd say the 2nd and 3rd pics are from Atlantic Highlands, Franks Pier to be specific. I'm guessing mid 60's as that was my early experiences in learning to fish, and about boats in those waters. Used to stand in line at 4:30am to rent wooden rowboats from Frank's Boat's and my neighbor brought his own Ted Williams 7.5 hp to hang on the transom. The ride to The Hook seemed to take forever, but when we got there and the fluke started hitting, it was so worth it.

I think it's amazing how much things have changed. Look at what they are wearing to go fishing. That one fella has a tie on lol

Warms the heart! Thanks for sharing. Those were the days when kids had fishing poles in their hands instead of iphones .

Wow awesome old pictures. I love the clothes they were wearing, a suit to go fishing! Those party boat pictures are cool. Found the Holiday, my very first party boat trip as a kid, Sailed out of cape may. There motto was "no bullshit, just fish" was on there business card. Well dad and I got the BS no fish for us, didn't matter I was hooked. Saw the amberjack boats on there also. Capt Vinny Ardolino. Just found out he passed away this past august. Guy was a legend! Fished out of Brooklyn ny, used his boat to ferry people off the island during 911. If you have not seen it google "the boatlift". That man sums up NY attitude...get it done! RIP capt...

Ned - this looks like it will be another epic post from you about New Jersey boating. Thanks again for bringing back the memories of where I grew up and learned about boats and fishing!

I spent my Summers in Barnegat Light from 1962-1971. 4pm many afternoons I'd walk down to the docks to see what the modest boats, with modest Capt's had found for their charters. Best time of my life.

I was a kid in the mid 60's and my uncle had a wooden 18' Lyman with a 75 hp Johnson at Brown's marina. That shot of the Morgan Creek railway bridge brings back a lot of memories. As a young boy, I remember seeing some of Zuback's boats and thinking they would go through any kind of seas. There were many Luhrs, Pedersons and Zubacks around back then. Do remember Millie's bait shop right on the other side of that rail bridge? She rented flat bottom row boats as well. I follow your big thread and I have enjoyed every post about that boats of that time. I also really love your personal boat as well. I never thought that you'd get those old engines running reliably.

That time has made me a life long boater. I have a diesel powered Carolina Classic 28 now at Morgan Marina for the last 6 years. Prior to that I had a 28 foot Chris Craft Commander flybridge for 15 years. I labored lovingly on that boat for 15 years, varnishing the bright work and keeping her in Bristol condition. Unfortunately, hurricane Sandy took her away in 2012. I named her the Fine Catch when I got her, because she was such a beauty.

I recently found this - my great grandmother's fishing pass for Squan Inlet during the war. Allowed them to 'fish' aka go looking for U Boats in their 35 Elco. All I know is he used to run away from the GBT...lost all his line too many times

Thanks guys. Sorry to say this thread canít go on like my other one as I donít have nearly as much stuff. Maybe Iíll see how much I can add to this.

Fine catch,.... sorry to hear about your boat and Sandy. The boat I rebuilt just barely escaped being wiped out. I think another foot of water and she would have been gone. As was 3 of the 4 blocks holding her up waged away. The engines arenít prefect (mostly a couple of little oil leaks Iím working on), but they do seem to be good and reliable so Iím really pleased. The boat did turn out pretty nicely so Iím pleased. This past summer I had her over to the north fork of Long Island (Greenport, Shelter Island etc) and out to Block Island, Mystic Seaport a number of times. So sheís starting to get around.
