  16. Hi guys, i finally figured out how to find the web site...i kept putting 1n stripers.com and all i could get was porno...anyway i am the fishhed in the red/tan bronco you see at 8 a lot..trying hard! old timers have been telling me that they used to catch em all year long so i have been trying ....did catch a 31 on jan29 and one same size on feb22..gotta tell the truth though..i fished a lot to get those 2 fish...was down yesterday but no fish in 6 hours...it was a good day to check out the beach though..extra low lunar tide..the beach has changed quite a lot this winter # 8 isn't what it used to be but there are still a few sweet spots that have opened up. lately i have been the only one fishing the whole 12 miles..its kinda lonely hope to see some of you soon....also i would say this website is the coolest and most informative i have ever seen...maybe i'll catch fish like you guys this year!! allen PS if chris and dean and bill read this see ya soon!!
  17. Recently spooled up some of that no stretch line (it takes me a while to catch up on new stuff)...anyway the feel is great but the knots are hell...i can barely see it, hardly feel it, and it's limper than you know what...how do i connect it to the partial spool of mono they recomend, i tried the 2 uni knots but my fingers can't manage the line....also is a palomar or uni the best knot for the swivel? Thanks!
  18. Hi Bill! spiderline, 20lb. i also bought some fireline 20 but haven't spooled it yet.What is the dissadvantage of not putting mono under the line? It seemed to work fine (without it)but i'm no pro.....I also had some "eratic" casts, i assume that's because the release point of the cast must be perfect?.....it sure did feel great with a rock on it!!!! Thanks allen
  19. sounds like a great idea but i sure don't want to give my friends pain or infection..allen
  20. hey bill....was up at old inlet yesterday...was told someone caught 7 the day before ..no details. plenty of people fishin as i crossed the bridge..never fished the rocks myself but might have to give it a try if things stay slow at AI..allen PS saw my feb rock post at the bottom of the reports.....i figured new members get the tail end....allen
  21. RE: AMSA .. don't forget that if you are out of state..(or out of worcester C. for that matter)..you must get a local to sponser you, I've dropped my fee to one case of beer(import)..most other AI fishheds charge 2 cases ..some of the berlin boys demand kegs....come on down! allen
  22. hey now...only live a few miles from OP so don't need a place to stay...but would love to hook up while here...look for a red bronco on the beach(usually around #8) or give me a call 410 352 5131.. don't sound like a tellmarketer or you will learn some new cuss words! allen
  23. 1974 was a good year for AI! too bad i was chasing the grateful dead around instead of fishin....maybe tommorow.....allen
  24. After 4 unsucessful attempts finally coaxed a rock out of the surf friday the 22nd ...only 31 inches but it was a great fight! never caught one in feb before...
  25. Thanks everybody! It was swell to read your mail! alas the fish gods were not with me today....sea grass and current...but it was extremely peaceful....allen
