  1. I fish Jamaica bay as I am from NYC. I have not really seen any fish here. I saw a short bass from one of my underwater filming expeditions and a week or two ago I saw a collection of bass scales on the ground from when someone had caught and cleaned a bass. But otherwise the situation is the same for me here in NYC and there are some visible schools of baitfish but no bass or blues in my area. I have always thought about making the trip out to Jersey to try and catch some fish but I guess you guys aren't catching much out there either.
  2. Went out today for blackfish from shore and caught nothing
  3. Do porgy still bite at this time of the year?
  4. Appreciate it bait tailor. For the record I have the money and means to get the gear I need. I just wasn't sure WHAT I would need at the time i made this thread and was looking for reputable brands that are specifically designed for the elements, rather than north force or spyder jackets (which is all I had at the time). These guys need to understand that for the for majority of newcomers like myself, the most outdoorsy thing we've done is hop from one train to another on a February morning. So proper surfcasting gear, attire included, is certainly worth discussing.
  5. As I cannot catch any real fish I start micro fishing. What is this
  6. Serious in that I did throw it back. Not serious as that bluefish is anything but "gorilla" size. Nice fish though
  7. Anyone want to give me a rundown on how to squid? If not I can always Google lol
  8. Here's a gorilla blue I caught back in September. Almost all the fish I catch from shore get thrown back, this one included
  9. I caught about 10 cocktail sized bluefish this year from my super secret spot in NYC (near Rockaway). The year before I went to the Rockaway every week and didn't catch a single one on bait or lure. I've seen those people and their buckets of fish. I remember in 2017 when I fished in breezy I would see guys bringing ropes and barrels full of bluefish. And I don't mean to point fingers but I've also seen party boats on Instagram and Facebook bragging about every passenger hitting their limit with pools of blood and guts thrown everywhere. Then a year later these same boats can't find a single school of bluefish so they instead go for porgy seabass or fluke. Definitely I think overfishing for bluefish is a big problem. Who came up with this 15 bluefish limit? I don't think it should be anywhere near that high.
  10. I enjoyed your report because I too have not been catching Jack squat
  11. Awesome thanks!
  12. Hello I live in an apartment and cannot store a 14 foot kayak in my home. I have an inflatable kayak but it is a headache to take out. Is there a place or service where I can rent a fishing kayak nearby to Jamaica bay? Or maybe store a kayak at? I'm new. Thanks

  14. Im fishing in new York by the rockaways from surf. Im not catching anything. No bluefish no blitz no taug no porg. Seems like fishing was better a month ago
  15. Im not catching any fish here and I'm using lures, buck tails and metals, in the 2 ounce range. Do I just suck? Lol
