  1. 9' ODM NEX1. More durable than the Evolution and just as nice to fish with (IMHO).
  2. Does no one use a bimini twist anymore? Australian Braid? Seriously, what Foxwoods321 says. An FG will go through guides easier but are tougher to tie out in the elements. A uni to uni is a pretty simple knot to tie if you need to make a leader change while not sitting at home in front of the TV...
  3. I've seen the same thing. Costs of everything are going up. If you want/need something, buy it now...
  4. I think Grumpys has them in stock. Check their website...
  5. As of 4 hours ago (of this post) he was still posting to his personal Facebook page, so it seems Bob is still among us. Oh, and according to one of his recent posts, he is 73 years old, in case anyone was wondering. As far as Frank Daignault goes, I really liked his books, and especially loved 20 Years On The Cape. It influenced me to write the "Weekend Warrior" column for StriperSurf and then for this site. His forum on StriperSurf, specifically his reactions to minor ciricism, was very disappointing. I guess the saying you should never "meet" your idols is true.
  6. This! Or, if you can wait, the new line of St Croix rods that are coming out, the Seage (hope I spelled that correctly) are super nice. They have a couple 8 and 9 footers that may fit your needs. I believe they are due out November 1st.

  9. It would benefit Shimano and Daiwa... :-)
  10. Once his buddy dove the second day and saw them, was it still necessary to kill the fish to be believed?
  11. I had a great experience with Puppy Love Pet Rescue in NJ. They were easy to work with, and when they had a pup come in that fit my list of wants, they reached out to me.
  12. Captain Rons works great on flies.
  13. I have come to learn since we got him that the tongue sticking out like that is called a "blep." He doesn't do it often, so I try to grab a photo when he does.
  14. If I recall correctly, that wreck was a mile or three north of the judge's shack. But I don't recall as correctly as I used to.... There has never been replenishment on IBSP, at least not through that area of the beach. I have had many good nights fishing that bulkhead and the beaches west of it. So many good stories...
  15. This is Stu. We got him last August and the rescue said he was "between 3 and 5 months old" and a "lab mix". Curiosity got the best of my wife and she did a DNA test on him. He is labrador retriever, husky, golden retriever, german shepherd, chow, pit bull, american foxhound, and about 8.2% they couldn't identify that they called "supermutt". Overall, he's pretty damn awesome.
