Ha - guess they'll have to rewrite all those little placards they have posted talking about the "moving island"....nothing like establishing a national seashore to preserve "untouched" nature - and then artificially alter it to suit your needs...

Sam - I have no info - was just reacting to what Randy posted. However, I wouldn't be surprised - don't they already bring in sand after big storms?

OK,

This hit me as part of what I do on the side is a Non-Profit group here in VA (I will discuss later).

Any idea who pays for the beach replenishment up there?

Very, very Curious!

I think the replenishment in OC this fall had a huge effect on the stripers coming in close at AI so one at AI would have a great impact.

I find it hard to believe they can promote a moving island and propose a renourishment. With no jetties that sand they put up north will be gone in a flash after a NE'r or two.

they generally pump from pretty far out, what is does do is eliminate the sandfleas etc as well as plover food for a while.
