  1. Posted this on a different thread but thinks its better suited here. Wondering what your guys thoughts are on the application of a 7.5 - 12 inch slug-go in the surf scene on the south shore. I've always considered it a back bay SS or NS unweighted play. Curious how you guys are using it on the SS? I would assume in an inlet it has to be weighted beyond insert weights to be effective. I'm thinking 1.5 - 2oz jig head minimally to get it down. Upfront on the sand beaches, I would think on a calmer surf you could probably get away with 1/2 - 3/4oz jig head or maybe even an owner weighted swimbait hook if you're just fishing the lip.

  3. Couple bucktails from today. Really enjoying the new vise, worth the money for sure.
  4. Great info fellas, much appreciated! I'll definitely get some pictures up when I attempt this project.
  5. Thanks good to know! That takes the fun out of making something yourself and catching on it but his do look good.
  6. Looking for some suggestions on dying a white bucktail Wine red? This would be the first time I've tried to dye a tail, figured I'd give it a go this winter. All suggestions are welcomed. I saw that Rit makes a wine colored dye but not sure how that would work with the deer hair. Appreciate the help.
  7. Anyone happen to catch the video of all the dead stripers on the Virgina coast from a couple of weeks ago. Looks to be all the cookie cutter size stripers we were all playing with at the end of the season. Let's all hope it didn't do to much damage to the stocks.
  8. Alright I have to bitch about something that pissed me off today. Im walking back from my local inlet and some inconsiderate a$$holes left two plastic bags of bait with large containers of clam and bunker in them just sitting on the beach. I mean how do you do that?? You come to a place to fish and just leave your unused bait on the beach for high tide to wash out?! They're fortunate I didn't see them do this or I would have feed them that clam down their throats and I can promise they would not do that again. I hate people. End rant. For the record I hauled it out with me
  9. It's funny I wasn't paying any attention to the signs on my way into the park and I got to the parking lot and was like this is weird no one is fishing. Literally thought to myself why is no one else fishing the inlet right now?? My first reaction was what am I doing wrong and where is everyone else? Turns out the park was closed... my bad. Didn't get a ticket either so that's cool. Good news though fellas the fishing wasn't good so you didn't miss anything.
  10. Just picked up a pack of the paddletails. I've been using the regular split tails for a while. Anyone have any experience with the paddle tails? Are the any good?
  11. I'd happily make the walk but I'm still trying to find those spots. It's only my first season in this area, got lots to learn.
  12. What's MD? I haven't even caught a fish with stripes yet. Only thing I've come up with are blues and skunks
  13. None of us have mentioned any "hot" fishing in the area so not sure we are blowing it up. Not to mention the dude on YouTube who posts videos every other day of what he catches specifically at jones beach. so anyone who might read this and think you should fish here bc we've mentioned limited success or that a bluefish was caught, don't waste your time it's not worth the drive. Other areas are much more productive right now imo
  14. HA Idk what the correct term for it is but the grassy areas with the soft muddy stuff and if you're not careful occasionally they'll break and you'll fall in the drink HAHA But being serious though most of the area between the meadowbrook and wantagh bridge is sand but there are some areas where it's a "marsh bank". You know what's great about going for a hike though... generally you'll be solo
  15. Yea, same I haven't done anything on the beach yet. I've had some limited success along the bay side though. Quick question actually is it cool to walk along the sod banks on the bay side? Am I going to eventually get yelled at by a park ranger for doing that? Cool pic, definitely the work of a Kraken haha
