  1. I have no problem with price increases for the permits. There's no reason they can't ship them though. My local one only has a 2 hour window to pick up during weekday business hours.
  2. The oil cooler housing is defective. They will all fail on Pentastar JKs. The lucky ones are within warranty. Seems 5 years is about the average mark. Mine failed at 7.
  3. The bay bite is a little different than it used to be. That's for the better. The fish are on bunker in early April, even late March some years. Those areas will be very productive, especially right around the New York opening. April is the best time.
  4. Something is up with the fishfinder or braid is chaffed up on both set ups.
  5. I have the same issue. @TimS Not to nag you, is there any remedy? Gets a little annoying with big threads. I have an HP Computer with Windows 11.
  6. I fished on my friends center console today and ended up tangling with a surfcaster while on a nice fish. If you’re on here surfcaster, I am sorry we were close to the beach. I can promise, if I was running the boat, we would’ve been a few hundred years out of any surfcasting range. Thank you for being courteous and taking your time to untangle us.
  7. I didn't think the quality of fluke fishing on facebook could be rivaled but a select few really dragged down this thread. Sad.
  8. This deserves emphasis. I've spent a lot of time off the Raritan Bay shoreline(I'm the younger guy that fishes with my father and Shetland Sheepdog in one particular area you frequent), Jersey Shore on headboats/Fish Monger these days, several Nantucket trips a year and Eastern Long Island in the past. One thing that's consistent in every single area or boat is the Gulp guys have much higher standards than people not using Gulp. For example, Fishermen A with bait will catch 1 keeper, 10 shorts and say the fishing was very good. Fishermen B with Gulp will catch 3 keepers, 15 shorts and say the fishing was picky. Expectations wouldn't be higher if results weren't consistently better.
  9. For whatever reason, the Helen H is googan central. I expected differently too but each trip was the same. For the most part it's not a serious crowd.
  10. I have 1 spot available for 3 days of fluke fishing this summer off Nantucket on Bad Influence with Captain Jeff Viamari. The dates are Monday-Wednesday, 7/25, 7/26 and 7/27. I'm looking for someone to commit to at least 2 of those days, 3 is best. The fare will be $350 each day. This includes the tip and is a little bit more than usual because of fuel surcharges this season. If you're interested, please comment or private message me. I will be requiring 2 days fare to hold the spot. We also have a house booked from 7/24 to 7/28 which makes traveling easier. The house would be somewhere around $65 per guy a day. This is fairly cheaper and nicer than what the hotels go for that time of year.
  11. ODM Nex1
  12. Landed a 30 lber on topwater last fall on my 701L. As long as drag is set good, you'll be fine.
  13. Relative to its size and ratings, the Evolution is extremely powerful and has a ton of backbone. Not to mention very light. I'm sure you would love it. I don't have one but am close to a dealer and several friends fish the Evolution. Personally, I love the Nex1 but there's no 8' Nex1.
  14. When bunker's around.... Absolutely.
  15. Use the lightest jig you can get away with. Depending on the beach you're fishing and conditions, that'll probably range from 1/2 to 1 1/2 ounces. I personally still prefer to use a teaser with my jig. My dad caught this 11 1/2 lber on a 1/2 ounce bucktail. The next picture is my biggest from the beach, close to 7 lbs. That was on a teaser with a 3/4 ounce jig below. 10 lb braid on each set up. 30.5 then 26 inches. Both days had great conditions and were very calm though. The weight your using isn't the biggest deal, as long as you're at the bottom but not dragging along the bottom.
