  1. How do you guys/gals rig your live bait? I’ve had stripers steal my live herring and mackerel off my hook the past 3 days so I want to increase my chances of hooking up. I’m using a size 6/0 circle hook. For herring I hook behind the dorsal fin and for mackerel I hook between the mouth. In the past I never had this problem. I’m waiting for the striper to swallow the bait before I even pull on it but the striper pulls the bait off the line before I get a chance.
  2. Edit: Double post.
  3. I was snagging pogies and realized some tinker Mack’s were chasing my treble hook so I quickly snagged some. Anyone else have this happen? What’s the best way to fish for Mack’s in Boston harbor from shore? I got a hit on the Mac within a few minutes.
  4. Did you mail in your original tittle or a copy of it?
  5. I’m having a hard time getting in contact with the Environmental Police Recreational vehicle/boat registry in Boston. I want to register my new boat, but they won’t answer the phone and I’m hearing they are not taking walk ins during Covid but I’m not sure if it’s true. I want to walk in with my paperwork. I feel if I do the mail in option, my boat won’t get registered until next summer.. Does anyone have any info on this?

  8. Selling my like new 2015 Hobie Revo 13. Used under 15 times and is in perfect shape. Comes with everything it would new plus the Hobie cart and a fishing crate. Located in MA $2200
  9. That's a pretty cool idea. I found one under a piece of plywood in my backyard, when I was in a kid in the mid 90's and then again hiking off trail through the Blue Hills in 2008. I walked right passed it. I didn't even see it until my friend walked by right behind me and it started rattling.
  10. I'll be at the canal this weekend. Any tips for fishing in a hurricane lol?
  11. I'm pretty sure you were right next to me. Were you with your buddy?
  12. Were you at the canal this morning on the east end? Thought I might have saw you judging by your avatar.
  13. Thanks for the insight guys. What reel do you think I should pair up with this rod? It will be used mostly at the canal. I have a shimano baitrunner 6000 that I really like but I feel it's too small for the canal? What about the 8000? I was also looking at the Fin nor leathal 100. My budget is around $200.
  14. I ended up finding it and had it fixed up at M&D's.
  15. I just got a TFO 10'6 rod as birthday gift and I'm trying to figure out what it's rated for. On the rod, it says 2-6oz, but on the TFO website and researching on SOL, it's saying it's 2-8oz. Do they just put 2-6 on the rod, but it's really 2-8?
