  1. That's funny my hiking buddy and I used to abvriate it to just The Pat-a-Guch. I'm in Jerzy, but I make a coupe trips a year to MTK and the cape. So I hit it all, sand rocks cold, weeds, warm ect.
  2. Totally, duct tape and rubber cement will only get you so far in life.
  3. Hi, I'd like to up my wader game. I've been using Frogg Toggs boot foot waders for the last three years, and I've blasted thru two pairs of them. They are good entry level waders, but I put in a lot of time on the water and I've already done two major patch jobs on my present pair this spring. I'm interested in a higher quality pair of waders, that are more durable and I'd like to make the switch to stocking foot waders. I've been using Patagonia gear for hiking since the early 90's and I like generally like their stuff, it's well made and they have a friendly repair policy. It seems tho, that the Patagonia fishing gear is totally focused on fly fishing and I'm having a hard time deciding which pair would work for surf fishing in the North East. Can anyone with experince recommend an all in one pair of Patagonia waders? I'm looking for something I can wear from March thru December, maybe when I fish on really hot day (which is super rare) I'll use my Frogg Toggs which are still totally serviceable.
  4. In terms of being cut, it definitely happens, even a session of throwing SP's on my 8 foot I've cut my middle finger to ribbons. I throw hard, and use my "forward" hand to pull down on the fulcrum to lever more torque out of the motion. There is a lot of force generated at the business end of the cast and all that force is traveling over the finger holding the line. The cuts don't happen all at once usually, the start on the side of my middle finger and work inward towards the center. I've been using gloves for the last few seasons like I mentioned in my og post, but I've been curious how others deal with this issue.
  5. Jerry Lives! I Knew it
  6. Thanks, this is exactly the stuff I was asking about. Thanks guys seems like in terms of a glove situation the Aqua Skins is the clear fav. And Hockey tape! I would never have thought of that.
  7. Hi, I hope everyone is healthy and having a productive fishing season. I'm wondering what everyone likes in terms casting finger protection. I've been using Mechanix gloves for the last few years but they tend to wear out. I also sometimes use duct tape, but I don't like the tactile feeling on my fingertip with the line. I've seen some people using what looks like an ACE bandage finger condom kind of deal, what are those? I've also seen people using golf/batting gloves. Protecting the casting finger is key to throwing long but I'm tired of blowing money on work gloves. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.
  8. there is an excellent John Skinner video on how to swim big spooks. Just search for it, it's awesome.
  9. I got my nicest fish so far this year on the long shot. I felt the same way, I would always clip on the SP, but I decided to put my faith in the bomber and it delivered.
  10. EXCELLENT ADVICE! Thanks man, my hope is to do just that.
  11. Hey Billy George, thanks for such a detailed answer. I've been throwing my white spook this spring and not having any success, your detailed post gave me so much info, I'm looking forward to putting it into practice. Tomorrow, after I get some rest, I've fished the last 6 out of 7 nights and I'm beat.
  12. Any Love Taps out there? Hahahaha. I fished the same spot all week on the same tide, found a good bite on the lead up to the new moon, and then basically nothing after that. Same as everyone else finding legal access has been a huge problem so I've basically just been focusing on a spot that know I can get to, unfortunately it's mobbed. I've been struggling with my cast (I'm trying to tweak my motion for a little more distance and it's been a struggle) and gear and making an absolute racket in the process, so apologies if I scared off your fish. I got my biggest on a Bomber long shot, and the SP's have been getting hit but no takers so far.
  13. Yea those are the ones. Someone gave me one of the big ones, and I keep it in my bag and throw it sometimes but without success. I'll have to grab a smaller one and try it in the bay. Thanks!
  14. Hi guys, I hope everyone is healthy and having as productive a season as they can under these surreal circumstances. Are spook style plugs effective in NJ? adult bunker seems to be the prevailing bait in the spot I've been targeting and big plugs seem like they should be working, but I'm not having success. Where and when do you fish the spook? Daytime/nighttime/tide/wind? I've been trying to improve my confidence in some different style plugs this season but my SP/Bombers have been getting the most attention as usual. Thanks!
  15. Fished the top of the afternoon outgoing in CMC for 2 hours. lots of bites, and lost a lot of plastic but only landed one blue. Probably had 5 or so spit the hook, still a fun afternoon on the water.
