  1. What's a good career for a guy who likes fish and fishing? Ideally something that involves both. Besides the obvious bait and tackle store, charter captain, deck hand, etc. I mean absolutely no disrespect to these guys who work like 16 hours a day in some of the harshest conditions for honest pay. It's just that I think the blue collar nature of this field often keeps away a lot of young men, who are forced by their parents and society into studying something they end up hating and that is basically useless anyway (business, history, criminal justice, etc) I'm thinking marine biologist, researcher, environmental lawyer, public advocate, etc.
  2. I would like to know this as well.
  3. I don't fish here and I don't care to. However, what ever happened to the sheepshead in Sheepshead Bay? I know there are a lot of older folk here who may have been around when they were still abundant.
  4. Basically I have a conventional reel. Can I put the conventional reel on a spinning rod? If not, why? Also, I know that party boats don't typically want passengers to use Spinning Reels when fishing. Why? Thanks.
  5. What do you guys think about this: fleece top and bottoms with full wetsuit underneath?
  6. Anyone know where I can buy a drysuit in person in NYC? I'd like to be able to try it on or at least get an idea of how it fits
  7. I recently started kayaking and enjoy it a lot in Jamaica Bay NYC. I want to keep doing it in October when the weather starts to cool down, my question is how should I dress? Right now, in July, I just wear shorts and a tee shirt. But in October will I need a wetsuit? Drysuit? Maybe just polyester top and bottoms and a weatherproof shell? Also it would be nice to wear something that keeps my butt and legs dry. Water is always getting into my kayak
  8. i dont see anything there
  9. So does anyone actually catch any fish here? Because all I ever see are dudes soaking bait
  10. Good to know I'm not nuts
  11. It's June and I'm still wearing a fleece and sweatpants to stay warm most days. Temperatures are still averaging high 60s to low 70s at best, with the occasional mid 50 here and there. Is this usual or unusual? Impact on fish?
  12. Gimbab I don't know if it's normal but it's been hard for me as well this year. Harder than usual. I remember in 2016 I was catching sea robins and skates in April and just now in June I've started catching these fish again.
  13. Good thanks for the update guys
  14. Green striped bass right there
