  1. Thanks!! Exactly the response I was looking for.
  2. Does anyone know if the travel rod would count as your carry on? I want to travel with a backpack and the travel rod, not sure if the rod would make it one or the other with the laptop bag.
  3. These are some of my favorite threads: https://www.stripersonline.com/surftalk/topic/647977-metal-from-tins-to-jigs-to-casting-spoons-everything-you-need-to-know/ https://www.stripersonline.com/surftalk/topic/639595-best-herring-imitations-how-you-fish-them/ https://www.stripersonline.com/surftalk/topic/639218-best-bunker-imitations-from-peanut-to-full-sized-how-you-fish-them/ https://www.stripersonline.com/surftalk/topic/640007-favorite-mackerel-luresplugs-how-you-fish-them/ Definitely take a look at the CBST as well, good options there for bucktails, metals, plastics from the Tinman.
  4. 2 small ones on my 2nd trip of the year trip Sunday am soco. Feels great to catch fish at the start and end of my season even if they are not drag pullers. Thanks to the guy who who caught the first one to my right, water was a little weedy from the winds and I was about to pack it in for the am. Also found a “new” to me spot by driving around although parking looks like a pain. Always appreciate observing people to see what makes a spot a “good” location.
  5. Hey, sorry for the delayed response. Not sure if you still have the white but can I’d like to offer $22 via PayPal for it shipped.
  6. Fish have passed both RI and the canal due to global warming. Try Maine, much cooler water up there.
  7. Ok, thanks! How much are you looking to get for each or both?
  8. Definitely interesting. Weight?
  9. Thanks Carl, always appreciate feedback and suggestions. I haven’t spent as much time fishing the Ava’s or trying to switch things up when the bite is slow so definitely need to remember to stop banging my head against the wall sometimes. I am also interested in what each of you expect for fish behavior AT slack (not either side of slack). This is generally my least productive time as I’m typically getting jigs hung up even at 1-2 oz. I like the water moving but am wondering if anyone has success when there isn’t much water movement. From reading some perspectives, some think fish use the slack to try to re-position, but I would think without the aid of some moving water the fish are waiting more for the current to move and bring food and/or give more of a competitive advantage. Maybe scrounging around the bottom for crabs and lobsters at those times?
  10. Pikies please!
  11. I tend to back off on fishing max current since I typically fish the deep water areas and am not a big fan of tossing 6+ oz. Granted I could try to more aerodynamic jigs as is recommended above and I am also likely missing some of the larger fish that are hugging the bottom at max flow. I do still try to cast as much as I can, if I'm in an area where people have stopped fishing as I'm still hoping to catch fish that may be sitting higher in the water column, that or I try to do a 10 or 2 pm cast rather than a 11 or 12 o clock cast that way I am still getting down to the bottom partway through the drift. May try to see what is out there for different jig shapes, I've also moved away from bucktails in favor of paddle tails due to the success, however I may go back to bucktails with sparse hair during max current as I find they tend to get to the bottom much faster than even an aerodynamic jig head/body combo.
  12. Not sure what everyone's schedule typically looks like, but maybe holidays? I tend to not do as much fishing on the holidays just because the crowds tend to be a bit worse than the usual. Breakfasts during the season I'd be up for, early morning tide then a brunch 9/10 am before heading back home. Dec/Jan/Feb/Mar/Apr are tough for me since I tend to just curl up in a ball for the winter but keep me updated what all of you guys are planning. Maybe a meetup at some of the fishing shows prior to the start of the season if any of you typically head to them.
  13. I’m in, thank you for the opportunity!
  14. Thank you very much for posting! Going to pass for now, looking for some different colors in the $30 range. I unfortunately don’t fish parrot colors.
  15. I’m unfortunately not going to be able to make it, Sunday lunchtime is typically soccer for my oldest. That’s pork definitely sounds tasty though and we will definitely miss the company and event.
