  1. and if you look at the names of most of those caught with undersized fish its pretty clear which ethnic groups are the biggest culprits
  2. much higher price for legal sized fish thru the front door.the blackmarket is mainly for undersized fish
  3. still,if you use a 20 lb average bass size,only an average of 1390 fish for each open day,sad to say the least
  4. Sudsy,are you looking to get it back to NJ,or planning on coming to canal later on?i could grab it from Puck and meet you later in season at canal
  5. its not jealousy,i have had epic fishing from Demo to Montauk that rivals anything that I have had at the canal,i have had epic fishing from the canal to Race point,but would never ever post specific pictures because I respect SOLs policy of spot burning end of story
  6. it is great that you had a taste of what the canal can offer,its great that you respect the fish you catch,its great you clean up after yourself,but one thing that this site members with any experience frown upon is a spot burn which your pictures and videos certainly show specific spots regardless of what other media is doing with the on goings at the canal as a member of SOL you shoukd be alittle more careful on posting images of specific spots.
  7. Still only around 1000 fish a day being sold if you use a,20 lb average,no reason for a price drop
  8. Look at how places on 6A from Truro to ptown that are not displaying the no vacancy sign that was the norm for this timtheree in the season a lot more cars heading north
  9. I am afraid of the stop and shop parking lot
  10. Ged don't hit your head when you fall off your throne.you have thousand upon thousands of recs that leave their house with the intent of bringing home a bass.in the end as our gracious host Tim says a dead fish is a dead fish
  11. no,if their is a problem with the stocks,then look in the mirror and see that you are part of the problem,dont place the blame elsewhere.anybody who spends anyamount of time on the water can plainly see that the recreational sector has a greater impact on the resource than the commercials coast wide.until everyone works together things are only going to get worse.. in the real world the vast majority of recs fish to keep a fish,what we read on this site is not representive of the fishing world
  12. i guess if you like serving coffee and donuts,D@D would be a better way to go.what is sad is all the recs that torture a fish with hooks for the fun of it when stocks are crashing,just saying
  13. not sure why you would think it was a privilage to fish with Mundus,there were many captains in Montauk who were known to catch fish,who were not egomanics
  14. i think you might have gone a little high,it gets worse by the week.less than a 1000 fish a day if the average is 20lbs.i,d bet boston harbour and north of boston is giving up the most poundage.that is legal poundage
  15. geez Kones you certainly didn't look you could have 60 years on the water,i guess i'd better take better care of my self.and dont be afraid of the sharks they don't like that old flesh
  16. so i like to ski,and one of the ways i can afford to ski is by coaching,i like to do woodwork so i build and sell things out of wood,i like to build houses so i work constuction here and there,i like to fish so i sell some fish,is that all ridiculous. i have no real job never have,i do what i like to do and make money off that is that riduculus.i know plenty of guys that cut firewood as a supplement to their varoius other jobs.nothing will ever change as long as the finger is pointed in the other direction.as far as commercial sized fish they have been decimated by everone that fishs both recs and commercials,unfortunatly when things are good everyone wants in,the lack of fish is the best thing that can bring the fish back just as it did in the past few centuries .
  17. my suggestion is head down to Mass,go to one of the dispensaries,get some really good weed,the skunkery the better,get really buzzed before fishing and enjoy the night
  18. Knowledge in the fishing world means nothing time on the water is what matters.
  19. all need you need is an 8oz diamond jig to snag others lures and jigs no need to bring other lures except a 32 oz norweign jig which is great for close quarter combat
  20. over the almost 20 yars that I have been a member here I met hundreds of members maybe close to a thousand.at one point there were spring flings fall flings plug get togethers and cod fishing trips,very few are still active members
  21. talked to a ranger late last night,said it doesn't look good any time soon. mosquitoes were so bad I left after about 5 casts
  22. Bob as always the price at the counter doesn't go down even though the price at the dock is way down.its a big country with lots of people who like to eat fish
