  1. I wanted to give a shout out to my buddy Dick Perry aka Bonefish Dick who's going in for surgery on Wed 3/13. Good luck Dick. Thinking of you as always my friend. Can't wait to get back out on the water together again.
  2. Jjp5. I'd be happy to show you a few spots once they're back in Boston that I fish. Lmk if interested
  3. I'll be in Naples next Tue 2/29 - 3/6 and wading the beaches and passes with my fly rod. Any reports from the beaches or passes in the Naples area? Have the Snook started to show up on the beaches yet? Also, if any SOL'rs want to fish together while I'm down there let me know!
  4. Hi Rich. I sent you a p.m. Just wanted to make sure that you got it
  5. Thanks flysully. My post was originally to get a general understanding of what the fishing community's thoughts on this subject were. I am familiar and understand that seals are federally protected and therefore culling them would be a near impossibility. Having said this it will unfortunately take tragedies like this to begin serious discussions about changing laws. I have said for years that the first time a child is injured or killed will probably be the lightning rod needed to bring this to a national discussion. Can you imagine how many deaths and injuries there will be when we have thousands of sharks as opposed to hundreds roaming the cape? If you could provide more information about the previous work done that would be appreciated!
  6. Can the moderator please remove this post? I'd like to set up a new thread as a yes no poll on culling the seals on the cape. No comments required just a poll. Can the moderator please do this?
  7. This is a straight poll on whether or not you would support culling the seal population on Cape Cod. The method of culling is not specified, it would be via whatever agreed upon method to reduce the seal population on the Cape
  8. Awesome discussion here folks on this important topic! Keep the comments coming! I may set up another thread as a poll thread because it will be interesting to get the raw yes/no numbers!
  9. I'm doing a quick straw poll to see whether or not you would support a Massachusetts ballot to cull the seal herd on Cape Cod. I'm not specifying how this would be done for this vote. I'm just interested and whether or not you would support such an initiative. Please respond with a simple yes or no. A yes vote would be in support of culling the seal herd. A no vote would be to not support culling the herd.
  10. I'm so very sad for this man and his family. Not to incite a riot but the problem is not that we have too many great white sharks. The problem is we have too many seals that are destroying a once world-renowned fishery and most importantly threatening human lives. It's time for the politicians to address this problem. Why is it possible that out west they can pass laws to reinstitute Limited hunting of sea lions to protect the salmon Fishery but we can't Institute a limited seal hunt to protect humans? What's more important?
  11. No albies. Caught a few stripes yesterday and took two friends out at 1st light today. caught six or seven loaded mid-20s. One of my friends caught her personal best at 31 in
  12. I'm looking to fish the craigville beach area by boat this weekend. Can anyone provide any information as to the closest public boat launches with public parking for the area? I want to launch at first light
  13. I've never seen the flex sold in stores. Only online in the small tubes or huge containers
  14. Sometime in September Nate. All depends on the weather. Need flat calm conditions for the day
