  1. Hey guys. How is the boat fishing off Greenwich, Cos Cob, Rye etc, all year round? How does it compare to something like the Canal productivity wise? Any worthwhile fishing down there? TY.
  2. Ive always like these but they are like $80, and I dont think they have the protected finger tip no?
  3. Doesnt the braid destroy the rubber on these?
  4. Hey guys. I've been unplugged from the gear scene for a while. I havent looked at the latest gloves in ages. I was curious what folks are using these days for casting gloves with a protected finger tip for braid etc. I had the Stormr Cast gloves previously. While they served their purpose well for protecting my finger, they were terrible quality. The seams fell apart on trip 1 and they leaked like a sieve. Zero hand warmth etc, and they smell! What are you guys using? Thanks.
  5. Thanks Scoob. I did not know about this knot. Interesting. Cant beat the Palomar though for simpllicity in the dark.

  7. Oh ***! I was wrong all these years. You are right. Her father is another actor called Bill Murray hahaha
  8. On Saturday if felt like there was a slack tide for 1h at the change, both on the dusk and dawn switches. There was hardly any current?? Normally it's only slack for ~15min. Why is this? What was different this weekend?
  9. The Mojo was way too moderate for me for heavier jigs (~4oz). The Avid fits the bill perfectly. I've never used a Legend but it's probably somewhere between the Mojo and the Avid.
  10. I find myself posting less and less. I imagine an online community like this should be equivalent to walking into a bar and sharing a brew and some fishing stories with like-minded fisherman. What would you sit down to talk about? "Hey, I caught this beatiful 39 incher this morning and here's a pic on my phone". Now imagine half the bar cursed at you for not C&R'ing? Would you visit that bar again? Ok so maybe I talk about something else. "Hey, I fished the Canal this past weekend and the fishing was great", and the other half of the bar starts throwing peanuts and yells "Spot burn, GTFO!". Ok so now I'm really asking myself what I'm doing there, and I say "I'd like to try some new spots on the north shore, any ideas", and no one says a word other than one guy going off about how FaceBook is ruining the planet. Ok so what's left? I'm about to leave and and I figure gear is probably a neutral topic and say, "I'd like to buy my son his first reel......", and I'm interuppted with a great response, only to find out it's "Hey, look at my $2k setup, and look at my shiny stuff with this cool label". Sigh. I dont know guys. Something is getting lost in all this.

    This is why I said I used to have a tank. One night in my 100+ year old apartment we woke up to a huge wood cracking noise. The floor had pulled away from the wall due to the weight of the 125g aquarium. There was no real damage, but I had to promptly empty the tank and give it up. I miss my tank.

    What about Oscars? I've never kept them but they are awesome. You can teach them tricks. Max of 2 in a 125 gallon tank though.

    Trust me, go freshwater and Cichlids. They are beautiful, breed really easily, and are extremely hardly. Saltwater will burn a hole in your pocket and you will have tragedy at some point.
