  1. I bought a '97 SR5 tacoma, lifted a few inches with 285/70R17 tires. I will be returning the truck to original ride height (period) and stock rims. 99% of the time I will drive the truck on pavement. 1% of the time I hope to drive the truck on the east coast beaches (assateague and NC). What's a good size tire and tread for this use. I'm old and don't want a load aggressive tire on the pavement. Thanks.
  2. Looks good. I ended up buying a '97 tacoma. Now I'm searching for fuel-miser car to go with it.
  3. Hey, thanks for all the input. Good info.
  4. I don't have one. Researching them for possible purchase.
  5. Could a Subaru Outback or similar car handle driving on the beach along the mid-Atlantic; such as Chincoteague/Assateague Island.
  6. The auction ended at $2235. I didn't bid.
  7. Any thoughts on the approximate value of a very old 16' Whaler (trailer and motor) that has no hull ID number, has mostly been sitting for many years, 75 merc outboard that ran when last used, and no controls for the motor. I was able to look at it and saw some scuffing on hull. I'm told that there are no leaks and I believe they are honest. I would search the boat value websites, but I don't know what year it is. untitled-27-1

  9. Thanks for the suggestions. The owner of a local shop said I'm all set as far as rods/reels and shared some local spots as well.
  10. thanks. your website doesn't show up in the thread.
  11. Thanks for the suggestion. What species are you targetting with that size rod? I plan to fish the surf at Back Bay, nothing else. Are my rods too big for rudee inlet? I really don't want to be buying more rods. I'd rather use what I already have. I suppose that I could trade them in or sell them. They are like new.
  12. I'm now living in the Virginia Beach area. The only excuse I have for not surf fishing is that I don't know what I'm doing. Where can I go or what can I read to get an education in short order. I've done a little bass fishing in my time and, as a kid, did some saltwater fishing from a pier using bottom rigs for spot and croaker. I own two 10' surf casting rods with spinning reels; one fast acton graphite rod, 12-30 lb., 2-8oz. and one medium action fiberglass 10-25 lb. Bought and used them once about 8 years ago on a trip with a buddy looking for stripers. He had to rig them for me. We were bait fishing. They still have the original line. Leader was cut off of one because it got all clustered. The only fishing knot I know to tie is the fisherman's knot. I can learn others, just don't know what's appropriate where. I'd prefer to use lures. I don't own a 4wd, so I'll be walking to my fishing spot, either Back Bay surf, Rudde Inlet, or somewhere else if I discover it. I'm interested in catching tasty fish for my consumption, not much into trophy fishing at this point. I don't know what species are tasty. Blues? Had a short-term job in my 20's doing creel surveys of saltwater fishermen. Saw a cooler full of tautog. The guy who caught them said they were very tasty. I see the limit now is 2 per day. I don't need a lot, but two seems rather low unless I get other fish too. I read a book about stripers and some online info about surfcasting in general. I'm also aware of Any advise on what species to target, what lures to use and how to rig the line is appreciated.
