  1. Montauk sucks. Best if you avoid the area. On the negative side, my winter walks produced way less plugs for me to re-use this season. No fish. No breakoffs. I might even have to breakdown and buy a pencil popper for the 1st time in 5 years.Can you help a brother out and come on out and lose some? Who the Hell uses those line stretcher plugs anyway? On a positive note......CCOM is doing a big cleanup tomorrow,PSEG has dropped the two proposed sites for a substation and there's now sand on Town Beach. Cheers, Mike
  2. Heading to Charleston for the school break. Family members have a great set up and I can fish the grass/edges from their dock. Low Country Flyshop has closed their brick&mortar shop. I'm looking for fly suggestions. Between my Northeast box and my Belize box, do I already have something that might work? Cheers, Mike
  3. Thank you....
  4. Hey Pak, how do you figure out how much chain/fit of strap? Been toying around with the harness set up for the 1st time.Don't know if I'm doing it right.
  5. Don't recall shipping being prohibitive. Spoke to Ribb, they suggested a rake,and they shipped. Still using over 10 years. Get the stainless. Cheers, Mike
  6. It's my understanding that the Alamo is a result of rock placement. Plenty of times I didn't make the shoulder, and wound up getting sucked over to NorthSide.
  7. Poulin: It's an hour and twenty with no traffic. I would be leaving by 3am to make sure I was down at the launch in time.
  8. It would be hard to resist those marshgrass reds in Northern Florida (Jacksonville) all the way up to Charleston. Savannah, St. Simons Island........man there's a lot of great redfish water. The guys at Black Fly (Jacksonville Beach) would be a great resource. Cheers, Mike
  9. They will have to pry my ChowderClam from my cold dead hand!
  10. Angler House? I fish out of there when I'm down. What was the nightly rental? When I'm solo I look for the cheapest place that's a right turn leaving Lorelei (post fishing)
  11. Best of luck. Document the build. Cheers, Mike
  12. Now that's a wedding present! Congratulations on both! Cheers, Mike
  13. I really like my Live Watersports....but it's really big. I recently paddled it to Block Island from Montauk, and I kept pace with most people on race boards. As the earlier comments state: You will not find a more stable platform. I'm 6'4" 280, and I put the whole family on it.Getting it on and off the truck might be an issue as well. I also have a 14' monohull board, that Mike Becker @ Nature Shapes made for me. That has made the crossing to Block Island a few times as well. It's a beefed up version of the BARK Eliminator. Displacement hull, quiet, fast and stable. Not able to add much more weight. I used the Bote inflatables in Belize, and they were just fine for flat water. Great platform and handled me, gear and beer just fine. You get some wind, and they are a bitch. If you are deploying from a boat, those inflatables might be the ticket. Cheers, Mike
  14. Great to see.
