  1. I did not get out much last year, but the year before we were getting keeper haddock (still better offshore) inside 3 miles. A few off Nahant and more off Cape Ann. All on jigs. So, it can be done, but not in great numbers...
  2. For me, I don't go through enough of them to sweat the price (only a little) so it is solid ring Sampo Ball Bearing is what I use. Most of the time I use swivels to avoid twist and a crane swivel just will not turn anywhere near as well as a ball bearing swivel. If I can"t find Sampo's, Spro Ball Bearings swivels are just fine with me.
  3. I have a couple of pairs of Donnmar Stainless Steel (real stainless) Pliers in 2 sizes. The light pair is over 20 years old and the heavy pair for over 15. At the end of the season I rinse them off in the salt water and come spring they are ready to go... Did the cheap plier thing for many years and got sick of reaching for pliers that took 2 hands to open... Not cheap, but not overpriced for what they are. I will say that I use very good zingers on both of them and glad I do, hate to lose them...
  4. Thanks, I had posted it on the Fish On thread...
  5. Due to the predicted inclement weather, the Fish On! Andover 2019 seminar by Allan Butler, scheduled for Tuesday, February 12this postponed to Tuesday, March 5th at 7pm.
  6. Cortland Master Braid is the toughest braid I have found...
  7. Yes, I did for about 4 years.
  8. Trophy Largemouth & Smallmouth Bass & Fishing at Night Tuesday, February 12, 2019 - 7:00pm Andover Memorial Hall Library 2 North Main Street Andover, MA Fishing videos from 6:00-7:00pm. Seminar starts at 7:00pm. Weekly door prizes! If you want to catch more trophy largemouth and smallmouth bass consistently, there is no better way than to fish when the lunkers come out to feed at night. Guide and outdoor writer, Allan Butler, will share proven techniques for getting big bass at night here in the Northeast, in your waters. He'll cover the best types of water to fish, time of year, weather and the tackle you need to land your personal best. From shore or boat, don’t miss out. Sleep is for the weak!
  9. I am giving them. Giving would be better than doing and will edit for clarity... I have been presenting seminars on fishing for over 20 years...
  10. Sorry, I don't understand what you are trying to say/ask... This seminar is about the great tackle we have now to use for groundfish, along with tips on improving your catch. Some of it will not apply well to party boats, but I am sure that even experienced anglers will find some helpful info at this seminar.
  11. I will be presenting two seminars this year; Jigging on the Ice, Not like Our Father’s Did It! 7:00 Friday And Haddock, & Bottom Fishing; More Fun Than It Has Ever Been! 3:00 Sunday Hope to see some of you there!
  12. One thing about Ted Williams that I like to tell Baseball fans is the time in an interview he was asked what was the best thing about baseball and he said: "it gave him time to go fishing!"
  13. Topwater at night... Not all of them...
  14. Better to have loved and lost, then to never have loved at all... May you land her next time and thanks for a great report!
  15. Welcome and Tight Lines!
