  1. I was there during the middle of July last summer. We had a good time chasing around packs of Snook running along the beach lip. The key seemed to be bait (greenies and glass minnows). If there was a little bit white water, it was easier to fool them. For us, the northern beaches were better as long as you could find some stretches without too many people in the water swimming and goofing around. I also second C.B. Outfitters. We ended up booking a guide to fish the flats in the intercoastal for speckled trout, which was a lot of fun. Jim Neville Marine Preserve is also worth kayaking.
  2. It sounds like tying up some leaders with clips and some without is the way to go. The main reason that was curious about using a clip is that when using spinning gear, I have found that I am more likely to experiment with different lures when using a clip, especially in the dark. I guess we’ll see how it goes.
  3. I am getting rigged up for my first season fly fishing the salt after years of surf casting. Is it common to use TA clips to make changing flies easier? I going to be tying up leaders of various lengths and was thinking about adding 50 lb TA clips. What are the pros and cons?
  4. I discovered yesterday that "Running the Coast. 1,000 miles with the striped bass migration" was available on Amazon Prime Video and free to watch for Prime subscribers. It is worth checking out if you haven't seen it.
  5. While fishing around deer island this morning at low tide, I found a casting rod and reel that looked like it fell off a boat recently. Anyone lose one?
  6. I recently put 20lb 832 and have had some problems with breakage. At first, the problems were being caused by a broken guide insert, but even after switching to a new rod, I have had a few problems with alberto knots so I switched to using a swivel with a polomar knot. My theory is that the line is not very abrasion resistant.
  7. That's a bummer. I'm staying in a rental overlooking Oyster Pond without a boat and hoping to catch a striper or two, but it sounds like the beaches are super slow.
