White perch out there for those venturing out in cold, wind | Fishing & Boating

Published

Chilly, windy conditions obviously are playing a role in fishing to start the year.

White perch continue to get more attention as wintry weather slows fishing for striped bass in the ocean.

Bucktails Outfitters in Mays Landing reported Monday that a couple of fishers came in and picked up some bloodworm and were headed out to Hay Road to give it a try on the Mullica River.

Marissa Spitzer said from Bucktails that the dam and Wheaton Bridge are open for fishing.

She said bloodworm is the best bait for white perch as well as for yellow perch. They also catch crappie and pickerel in the upriver stretch of the Great Egg Harbor River environs.

Marissa reminded that freshwater fishing licenses cost $22.50, and a trout stamp for later in the season is $10.50.

Dave Showell at Absecon Bay Sportsman Center in Absecon also mentioned Hay Road for white perch. He said Monday that fishing in the river from a boat off Green Bank and Lower Bank is working for white perch.

Noel Feliciano, who is hard at work expanding his One-Stop Bait and Tackle in Atlantic City, also pointed to reports of white perch off Green Bank and Lower Bank.

Vancouver Canucks to sport new jersey for Lunar New Year

Published

By



The Vancouver Canucks will soon be sporting a new look during warm-ups in honour of the Lunar New Year.


Trevor Lai made more than 80 sketches while designing the jersey, which features the Canucks’ orca logo transforming into a tiger, to match the Year of the Tiger on the Chinese zodiac.


Lai said he worked hard to incorporate Vancouver’s Chinese heritage into the design.


“On the shoulder patches, I put the Chinatown Millennium Gate, and that was really important, and to put the Chinese characters of the Vancouver Canucks team into the gate to say that we are one community,” Lai said.


“I think that message is also really resonating. So, to see the fanbase of all ethnicities get so passionate about this design is really an honor and I really thank the team for letting me do it.”


The lifelong Canucks fan said he wanted his design to honour the team’s logo, while also symbolizing “positive change” for the new year.


“If you look at the fin of the design, obviously that was the biggest challenge for me,” Lai said. “It’s like, how do you put a fin on a tiger? You know, that doesn’t really work in nature. And then I thought it was a perfect space to put the Chinese character for Tiger … It goes right in the fin, and it just happened to fit perfectly with the Chinese calligraphy. And I was really happy about that.”


The Canucks will wear the jerseys during warm-ups as part of their Lunar New Year celebrations.


Proceeds from sales of merchandise bearing Lai’s design will be donated to Elimin8Hate, which is the advocacy arm of the Vancouver Asian Film Festival and works to combat anti-Asian racism in Canada.
