  1. Great program! I've been tagging for them for about 5 years. Its pretty cool too because if someone catches and reports your tagged shark, they will send you the updated info. (where it was caught, length, etc.)
  2. Would you take $30 pp shipped for lot 2 and 3? Thats the 4 poppers and the single darter. Im on Long Island. 11901. and Merry Christmas!
  3. Personally I prefer a higher retrieve rate when fishing the jetty. Helps me get back in faster and avoid blues. I mostly fish bucktails on the bottom.
  4. I just this past year stepped up my game on fish care. The bleeding in a bucket prior to icing makes a huge difference IMO in your end product. That plus vacuum sealer provides awesome fish all winter. I have never added the saltwater to the ice in the cooler. I'll be giving that a try next time. Thanks Joey
  5. I bought a Guy Cotton top this past winter to replace my 10+ year old Precision Pak top which I loved but is falling apart. Not sure if it is the Dremtech or previous version? Overall I like the top and the fabric is very durable which is the main reason I picked it. I fish jettys a lot. No issues with water intrusion through the sleeves or neck from rain/waves (I do not swim). It is fairly comfortable. I have worn it a dozen times so the test of time is still in the works. Being tall and thin, 6foot @ 165 pounds, I find the body a little baggy for me in size large. Sleeves could be an inch longer but this is also the story of my life with how most clothing fits.
  6. As for the difficulty sighting in. I would check what was already mentioned about adjusting the poundage exactly even. This can cause a timing issue. I would set the poundage back to 50 and set the pins to 20, 30 and 40 yards. increasing to 60 pounds should only require some minor adjustments. Good luck with the bow and in the field !
  7. Glad to see you getting good advise on keeping it to ethical distances.
  8. I saw the first two episodes and was wondering the same. It certainly eliminates the need for an acid wrap and the rod wanting to spin.
  9. I really like the acid wrap layout. I'm currently working on changing my arsenal over.
  10. Lots of good recommendations above and a lot of good reels out there on the market today. I really like my Curado 200 which does double duty SW and FW. I also have a Calcutta 300D on an 8 ft loomis for surf and boat casting. I really love it and it casts extremely well. It really throws a mag darter and the 1.5 oz plugs well.
  11. I'm a big fan of the JRE. I've listened to both of those and I agree, MIND BLOWN. I assume you have seen the few with Graham Hancock on the same topics (episode 872 & 961). I love all the health and fitness info I get thru his episodes too. Joe has brought a lot of positive light to hunting and conservation over the past few years and certainly increased my belief on the positive side to health of red meat!
  12. That was a really good listen. As was Doug Durens previous one on JRE. CWD has been a growing issue for a while now. One of many issues the ever growing deer population will continue to promote. Fortunately on Long Island by me this isn't an issue (yet) but the increasing rise of tick borne illness doesn't make me feel much better. I wish there was too many striped bass.....
  13. For small fish I also cut the gills but put them in a bucket of clean water for a minute or two. Makes a big difference IMO.
  14. Very glad to hear that it is getting dredged. Big thanks to Zeldin and others involved. Those most recent pics looks pretty normal though. Im curious what exactly they will be dredging, will the bar be addressed?
  15. I would assume that there is such small profit margins that there isn't any room to adjust prices. As mentioned, its a small market and easily monitored. I wonder how many rods get built a year by these companies?
