water looked fine didn't see any oil or anything of that kind i believe it is safe to eat them since there coming from the ocean and they really haven't been in the water that long yet and the water is still cold when it starts to heat up i think thats when u'll see the problem don't know the temp of the water all i know is it was COLD

you might want to post that I believe they still close the gates at times, so if your back there, your back there till the next day.

we have alot of ways out mainly over the hills and through the reeds neverknow when they close gates or block the main road happened last year to us so we made sure it wouldn't happen again its just easier to go through the gate and not get ur truck all muddy

John you must mean the low road,I was there today and went up on that hill in 4x4 Let me tell you I went about a mile before i got neer the river and was able to turn around! Was scared to death if I got to close to the edge i would roll the dodge over! Even Gunner was not comfortable with that ride.
Additionally Flood Gate rd gate is still locked with a note by Greenwich Twp police Closed to all but clean up crew.

I went to the DOD today. The gate was moved on the main road. construction crews had fixed the road, and were movin some dirt around. I was able to get in and out no problem. Water was cold and muddy. Wind was really kickin too. I caught my first of the year, a nice 27" bass about an hour before high tide on blood worm with a fish-finder rig. Eatin good tonight!!!!
