  1. Heading to montauk next weekend. Anyone know of anywhere i can find up to date info on the striper migration? Or better yet, is anyone currently fishing there and having luck with striper action? Anything i have found online has been from the spring migration or older. Thanks for any info.
  2. Still available?
  3. Thanks for all the suggestions guys! Hopefully the striper bite is on when im there, if its not, ill be at the bars getting hammered.
  4. Hey guys, im finally geared up as best as i can be for my first trip to montauk. Hoping i picked a good week to take some time off of work and get some action. Ill be there for 5 days and was just curious if you guys could recommend a few good spots to eat breakfast and dinner as well as a few bars i should check out.
  5. I will accept that offer. I can meet you tonight between 6pm and 9pm if you are free
  6. The vice is nothing special guys, it was only $75 if i remember correctly and has no manufacturer logos on it. It was purchased at tight lines fly fishing in parsippany nj. Also sorry, but, i am not parting out these sets, i already have them split into 4 lot sales. Make an offer and well see if a deal can be made.
  7. I appreciate the thoughts guys, but i still have about 10 rod set ups im bringing lol these are just the few im willing to part with

  10. Update; thanks for all the tips guys, i ended up tying about 15 flies for today and only lost 2. Got 2 trout total 1 on a pink squirmy wormy and 1 on a pink bead egg with flouresant pink dubbing. Tried fiddling around with other assorted flies but i guess pink was the choice for today. These were stocked trout so im still going to keep up with trying to land myself a wild brown or brook trout in the following weeks. Thanks again!
  11. Thanks for the tips ill give it a shot sunday hopefully i get 1 or 20
  12. Hey guys, last year i finally bought a fly set up and started tying my own flies. So far I've caught 2 trout this past spring on some bright green flies that i tied as a joke and put it on when my “caddis flies” weren't producing any bites. Now its fall and im fishing the nj area in the flatbrook river and rivers near it, and areas in roscoe ny. I went out last weekend to roscoe and in 3 days didnt catch a thing. So my question is for the north eastern area for trout fishing, what flies and hook sizes would you recommend i use? These areas have stocked rainbow trout but im more so interested in trying to hook into a wild brown or brook trout. Any advice is appreciated, thanks!
  13. Just got it last season, never used an anchor before that but no i didnt even notice that loop at the base until you just mentioned it, would have been helpful to have that info under the rocky bridge when the water was almost 8’ high and i almost flipped trying to get unstuck. Thanks for the tip!
  14. Anyone catching stripers in the nj surf yet? Id so how big? Any pics?
  15. I use this same style in a 3lb weight on my kayak and it holds my kayak even in the Delaware rivers rapids areas currents with no issue, just can be a pain in the ass to get back up some times if its wedged really good.
