  2. could be as far as i know. ive seen seals back there in the colder months and ive see whatever kind of saltwater turtles we have in NJ up in the AK
  3. thread closed. found what i was looking for. thanks SOL
  4. first post in a while in the reports page. not due to a lack of fishing though. hit NOMOCO last night with some free time that i had ( 1730 - 1930 ). worked a section of surfline at the start of the incoming. water was fairly calm with small waves providing a bit of white water over the bars. switched between throwing gulp with jig heads and bucktails for the flat ones. landed 2 short fluke on the gulp and a small snapper as well. first fluke was spitting up mole crabs. nice evenin on the surf.
  5. sorry, i didnt get the notices that you responded. also, ill pass at the price on a used pair. thanks.
  6. as the title says, looking for 7" VS Pliers. let me know what you have.
  7. 2nds if it falls through
  8. Kil do you have the stock guide layout for the 9'6 ? just curious to see as a starting point for my build. thanks
  9. Got out Friday around 9. MOCO. Fished some hard structure. Landed 6 on the teaser and swim shad combo. Broke out the fly rod and caught my first bass on it. Back out this morning. MOCO from 0600 - 0900. Got 1 on the teaser in the wash. Made a 2nd trip around 1400 - 1700. OC then MOCO. Got 3 more in OC on the teaser. Much dirtier water every time I fish OC. I don't know if the shore break stirs it up that much ssediment or what. When I moved north to MOCO the water was gin clear again. The only time i have encountered dirty water in MOCO besides for a sustained storm break was when they're pumping, but moving a bit allows me to find clean water.
  10. I was catching a few on accident a few weeks ago off some rockpiles.
  11. Saturday morning. late start. MOCO 0800-1030. hard structure with a falling tide. got 4 small fish on the teaser. these were the first teaser fish i remember catching this fall. prior, i believe every fish i caught had taken the lure over the teaser. met up with a buddy who started in the dark and only pulled 1. he ended up with 2 more after we met up on the swim shad. back out in the evening in OC. 2130-0030. had no choice but to walk out on the bar as the water was that low with the moon tide. i dont ever recall being that far from shore in that little amount of water. worked hard for a single fish on a bomber. missed at least 1 to 2 hits prior. he hit hard and fought well for the roughly 24-26 inch fish he was. nothing on the teaser.
  12. Try to keep other conversations, inquires, and rants in separate threads. If you have a question about something that would make a good thread on it's own, please start one. For all of you new to the site, this is how you should make your report. Remember it's up to you how much information you give, but please keep it within the rules. County, Front (oceanfront) or back (rivers, bays, and inlets), Conditions What you were fishing for, What you were using, What you caught. You can say that you caught fish in Ocean County but saying that you got them at Ocean Beach is a no-no. The terms to use are.......... Monmouth County Ocean County Atlantic County Cape May County North Jersey for the Hudson and other backwaters. County name plus "In the back" for Inlets, Rivers, and Bays.
  13. i use a mono leader attached to my braid with an FG knot. i put a dropper loop a few inches below that connection. the teaser is always some sort of fly i tie. either a Rays fly or some sort of variation. the teaser is slid onto the dropper loop. the clip is around 24-36 inches below the teaser.
  14. i got a 4 tube custom bag made. it has a removable front pouch with bucktail loops which holds plenty of bucktails and assorted soft plastics. also works well for rigged eels. the bag itself has loops for tins inside and 4 huge tubes. it has an area on each side for attachments that can be custom made. (he also has standard attachments, pork rind holder, water bottle holder, spare tube, etc. anything you can think of he will design for you) the bag is hook resistant which i love. i can stuff more plugs behind the tubes if i want. the only think i wish i did was get a 3 tube instead. thats in my future plans.
