So, its probably a widely accepted 'cultural thing' endemic to NJ.

This is Nih-Jezzey, Viva Yo!!!!!
(and where a middle finger salute is always optionally appropriate)

Nope, wrong. The last one I remember doing that was from Montauk. It WAS a 50'+ sportfisher. A Similar culture there on LI. Not all of LI, mind you, just from Manhattan to Montauk. :-)
