  1. Just saw this Interview with Crazy Alberto Knie, thought some of you may be interested.
  2. I'm in!
  3. Heard Prospect actually is the best bass waters in NYC. Don't know if there's any truth to that or not.
  4. If you read the post like mos people do, you would know what the popper is there.
  5. They were protected from DEC, but not considered endangered until recently, this year. Being on the Federal endangered species list grants the species much more protection than the state's DEC regulations.
  6. Figured I would try to get some plugging in after work at the jetty today and try my luck at getting my first keeper on a lure. Saw a few other fishermen there that was using artificials, and a couple bait fishermen as well. Threw some tins, then a Storm shad and finally worked a Lex pencil popper. I was more practicing how to work the popper than anything else, when I noticed this young kid by the jetty trying to un-snag his rig. I told the kid the rocks there are slippery, and to be careful. His dad was all the way on the other side, and I was worried he might get himself hurt. After that, I tried to give the kid some tips on where to go to get advice on gear, spots, and type of bait to use. They were asking me what they could catch with the bait they had, and what type of fish I was trying to catch with the Lex popper. Then I asked if dad has his marine fishing license and federal marine registry, and shortly after telling them how to get the license, this is what happens on my next cast... [img= http://www.stripersonline.com/image/id/3536640/width/700/height/525' alt='525'> Either the bail closed, or while explaining to the dad and son, forgot to open the bail, and BAM! Right into the jetty rocks.... Any chance of saving it? Haven't caught my first keeper yet, and this happens =T

  8. I had a few telescopic rods, they're just toys. I used to catch small fluke with them, but nothing in the keeper size class unless it was less than 2 LBs. In Brooklyn, I often frequent the pier at Owl's Head park, on Bay Ridge Parkway under the Belt. Just resterday, I caught a 2lb fluke, and many other guys were catching big Blues, huge Sea Robins, and skate. None of these fish would have been able to be lifted with a telescopic. It's probably best if you get at least 12LB mono line to fish these areas, and that would require 2-5 oz of lead to hold bottom at the piers. This is the minimal. You'll need a rod that can handle 2-5 oz of lure weight, and strong enough to handle 12-20 lb test line. You'll want a reel that can handle 150-200 yards of 12lb mono as well. I believe this set-up would last you a long time before your skills require you to upgrade to a more specific set-up. The great thing about this set-up is that you won't need to get rid of it, but you can still use it along with other set-ups you aquire in the future. The telescopic just sits in the corner now, never to really see water again. Learn from other's mistakes, I think that's the purpose of your thread. PM if you want to know of other locations around BK to shore fish.
  9. Would you take $18 shipped? Please PM if offer accepted.
  10. Price drop, $190 shipped.
  11. What's an egg sinker snag rig look like?
  12. No problem. Here you go. [img= http://www.stripersonline.com/image/id/3488380/width/600/height/450] [img= http://www.stripersonline.com/image/id/3488383/width/600/height/450]
  13. Hi, I'm still looking for an RM Piglet in pink scale for my wife. I have several RM plugs that I can trade with. I don't have much, so selection might be limited, but let me know and I might just have what you're looking for. Thanks!
  14. CI4 CI4 stands for Carbon Interfusion with the 4 referring to the number of electrons in the Carbon atom. Ultimately, this means CI4 is reinforced Carbon Fiber. It is over one and a half times stronger than our normal XT-7 graphite and is over 20% lighter. Because it does not contain metal, it is impervious to rust. So, as a result of its strength and weight, we can create an extremely lightweight reel with very precise tolerances.
