  1. Finally broke my skunk for the year! Monmouth county in the back. Also my new PB. Only bite for the year and it was a good one!
  2. Hit outback moco, only fished a little over an hour. Strong wind, off color water. Lots of bait, no fish.
  3. fished out back today, couldnt resist, caught the skunk. I am getting excited for spring to show its face!
  4. I would be on favor of a saltwater fishing license, to fish in New Jersey. It is like 40 bucks for a resident year license in Texas. Texas parks and wildlife uses the funding to fund research and restock fish. I agree that the monetary side would have to be explored, I wasn’t to that yet. We just moved her last year and I am learning the history of the striped bass. Practice C&R and replaces all my books this year with crushed barbs. I am not happy about paying more money to the state.... but for the sake of conservation it could be a nice step. Especially if you can get all of the striper coast to agree upon a fund management for preserving the biomass and the viability of the resource.
  5. So maybe a dumb question, but why do they not stock fingerling striped bass like they do redfish in the Texas coast? The Raritan Bay/Hudson would be a good area for releasing the fingering fish to allow them to be in a similar habitat to natural spawned fish?
  6. @Jerseypride badass fish! You deserve this one! Also, hell of a job on the release!
  7. Moco our back this morning. Caught a couple shorts. Sure glad to get the skunk off me. Also met another SOLer while getting breakfast on the way home.
  8. Hey Gillster, just wanted to let you know I received the reel. Item was as described and I am pleased with the transaction. Thank you. Tex
  9. Thank you, I am excited to get the item. Gillster, the payment was sent this morning.
  10. Scott I was more so talking about a compression plate. I like the Shaw wings. They surround the whole outboard and hold the water around the lower unit. The dolphin tale is more so just to help with bow control and less to help with ventilation when the engine is jacked up higher.
  11. Gotcha, I want it. Pm me the details for PayPal. I am I jersey for shipping 07735.
  12. Are there any mechanical issues with the reel? Has it been recently serviced? I am interested at $450, I am assuming this includes all fees and shipping per the Forum rules.
  13. Had a 4500 spinfisher live liner and it was a nice reel. I traded it to a buddy for a different reel. The only complaint was it was heavy for its size.
  14. I wouldn’t expect sea foam to help much if anything. One thing to also consider is the age of your fuel lines. Especially if they are not alcohol resistant. Also, a good raycor canister water fuel separator is a must for outboards. It will save you headaches for sure. Also leave the engine in the lower position for winter, run it out of fuel on the hose before putting her up for the season. I had had an old Mercury I left trimmed up for the winter and found a nicely cracked lower unint in the spring. Some leaves feel into the hub and blocked the drains allowing water to freeze the lower unit.
