  1. He needs to update his avatar with the new book cover.
  2. I’m guessing that for some people the idea of almost-free seafood trumps any taste issues.
  3. There are people who eat albies, and apparently it occasionally shows up for sale in NYC area seafood markets.
  4. Yeah, the X2 200 and 250 are plenty large, and a significant step up in size from the 150. IIRC, the 200 and 250 have the same body, but the 250 has a larger rotor and spool.
  5. It was insanely good for about a week and a half. This year, shore guys seemed to do particularly well. The last I heard, the fish were still in the Bay, but that info is a couple of days old. The fish were as far north as Bristol and East Greenwich.
  6. Agreed. At least in my experience, albies take off like a shot when released quickly. As with any fish, the googan factor, poor landing techniques, and the desire to put every fish on social media, likely increase the mortality significantly.
  7. That actually good news for me. Most of my fly fishing experience is on freshwater, and I’m not sure I’m ready yet to handle the big albies I was getting last week on spin gear.
  8. I had a similar experience on Friday - a fish on as soon as I closed the bail. Happened 2 or 3 times.
  9. One from shore today. Lots of blowups, but it didn’t seem like many fish were being caught.
  10. I had a similar experience the other morning. Albies were jumping before the sun was even up. I’ve also been hearing reports of sunset catches this year.
  11. Definitely. Letting it fall can be very effective, even for the speedsters.
  12. My Sunday morning trip in BB was a dud. It was just dead out there.
  13. The fruit in our area is the best we’ve had in years, which surprised me after the long drought.
