  1. Hmm ok, I've got some ideas for spots then, I have one specific one I've been wanting to try forever
  2. oh interesting.... i wonder which part of the west passage it came from. well that's discouraging... so maybe try deeper areas than normal? I did find some decent seabass and scup numbers, but the scup weren't that big and not seabass season yet so i didnt focus those areas too much'
  3. I was wondering if anyone is having decent luck for fluke in RI, I was out yesterday in the bay and didnt even find shorts... going to give other spots a shot but wasn't sure if it's just my location or just the fishing this year
  4. that is really unfortunate... I hope that never happens to my local spot
  5. Wow that is just wrong...
  6. wow, how did they break off a fish like that with anything resembling 50lb mono
  7. So, I decided to to a little fly fishing yesterday evening for largemouth, and as I was unhooking one, i saw a second line, and realized I had already removed the fly, what is this second line? So I look closer and there at the top of its throat is a hook stick out attached to the line with a familiar swivel attached... luckily I had forceps with me so I was able to get the hook out, and once I saw the hook it hit me, this is a dropshot rig that I lost early this spring, I think I broke off on a rock pile since a small tag of braid was still attached. In the end I'm just glad i got this hook out of the fish and released it, although I am impressed at how healthy it seemed after a season with a hook in it. So, has anyone else had similar experiences where you were able to remove some of your, or someone else's lost tackle to let a fish swim away better than you caught it?
  8. Yeah they are heavy, but to be honest, I haven't minded the extra weight kind of feels nice... i mean for a super light weight setup it wouldn't make sense, but for a 4 or 5wt and up, why not lol.
  9. Oh yeah those things will never see the salt Haha, havent actually tried fly fishing the salt yet, but may this year with a graphite reel I got on amazon... 15$ and surprisingly nice(for the price)
  10. oh i agree, having a lighter version would definitely be nice... i wonder how much one of these things would weigh if you made it from some sort of composite?
  11. I've never tried the shorter one, but I'll be curious to see how the extra size effects it... maybe it will give the predator a run for its money
  12. Well it looks like old town finally gave the larger size topwater a pdl drive
  13. So, I picked up 2 old automatic fly reels at a yardsale today, one pemcoand one shakespere model ft automatic, along with a 7ft 5wt shakespere wonderod. I ended up spending the second half of my day fishing on my kayak, and figured why not take the Shakespeare along with me... after that I may have to start using more automatic reels, it was just such an awesome experience! So, what's everyone else's opinion on automatic reels, and are there many modern options?
  14. Thanks, dont think I have ever seen a northern, only striped
  15. i just did some research, and we seem to have northern sea robins (smaller and darker) and striped sea robins (big orange ones)
