  1. Problem is it’s not even viewed as a surf fishing permit it’s a load the whole extended family in the back of pick up and have a bbq on the beach permit. I’d say Less than 50% of people on the beach on a weekend are actually trying to catch fish. Like people said someone grabs their ultralight combo from Walmart and some worms and tosses their line out. I’m all for increasing the price to get some more enforcement out there. Another thing that drives me nuts is letting your kids go run around all crazy. I’m trying to fish at the fishing beach go to the wading beach if you want to act like that. I wish they would make a rule that everyone in the car has to have a fishing license or something like that. Also these are the same jackasses who get stuck at the entrances and **** them up spinning tires and get stuck.
  2. I always miss the big fishing shows because I find out about them after the fact. When are the dc/baltimore/Annapolis shows this year? i know this coming Saturday the 12th is the Frederick Saltwater Anglers show at Frederick county fairgrounds.
  3. Just as the title says where are the good Delaware/Oc fishing shows at and when? I find I always miss one I want to go to because I have no idea that it’s going on. Thanks!
  4. Had to carry my big rig from the bed of my truck to my garage by myself and it was difficult. Definitely making a dolly here soon.
  5. I think my first season I won’t really venture into big water and i do it will be close to shore. There’s a decent size kayak club around my way that I’m going to try to get out with guys from there as long as they don’t mind a noob tagging along.
  6. Lol great point about having to take a leak. Thanks for the input.
  7. Thanks for all the very helpful replies. In 62 degree water(60 degree outside temps)are neoprene waders sufficient or is it 100% dry suit only?
  8. Just bought a 2018 Jackson Big Rig today due to it being a great price. Won’t be taking it out fishing until the spring so I’m going to load up on accessories slowly until spring. In your opinion what are some can’t be on the water without items(I know a PFD is 100% necessary). Thanks! Also is the $300 dollar paddle vs the $100 paddle a big deal?
  9. Does anybody on here have this yak? I’m 6’3 320 and looking to get into kayak fishing the Chesapeake Bay and associated rivers. I was looking at this or the Jackson big rig but the vibe is priced much better. Anyways does this kayak handle for you? I would probably use on the rivers mostly. Looking for anything positive or negative thanks.
  10. Still available?
  11. Finding a peaceful litter free spot on the bay isn’t easy. At KN people just leave trash and bait for the ranger to pick up. I help him out and try to pick up any trash that isn’t disgusting old bait. Also so when I came on here for the first time I definitely didn’t understand the whole spot burning thing. I got lucky and someone helped me out. I now understand why it’s bad. However I’m not the type to go on FB or Instagram and brag about where I caught a fish.
  12. I really like my costas. There warranty is great and if your break the frame or mess up the lenses you can send them in and they will fix them or send you a new pair for just under 100 dollaare.
  13. As someone who fishes from shore it’s tough. I’m lucky to pull one or two decent sized schoolies every trip for the most part. It sickens me to see people who don’t respect the size limits in person and online. I use Fishbrain sometimes to just see what is biting and people post picture all the time of well undersized stripers in their coolers.
  14. I’m in! Thanks
  15. Interested in buying lot if you’re willing to ship...
