  1. Is there somewhere it says who will be giving seminars? I saw Bill Wetzel will be speaking =)
  2. If we see a tagged fish, we leave the tag on or take it off?
  3. Great thread thanks!
  4. They still have some cheaper (including the $143) if you click "from other sellers".. I didn't realize my reel was coming from China whoops!
  5. You are the man thanks!!! I bought another! haha
  6. I paid 200 for a 4500 today (thought that was good) I wish I saw this the other day!!! Nice deal you guys got!
  7. I'd buy one right now
  8. Went to the beach for 2 hours early this morning. Shorts all over. Went back for a couple hours in the afternoon, the wind kicked up and they were still there. Some sand eels in the wash and some sand flea. No other fishermen either trip. I hung up my waders tonight just to dry them off. They aren't going away just yet.
  9. In a way it's nicer to fish because we get to use some lighter equip. 9'6 airwave is one of my favorite rods to use. Barbs being crushed already bailed me out this fall when I hooked a bird wing (helpful with fish too ). Good advice. Time to go take some rips!
  10. I may have seen you out there good luck!
  11. Part of me wants to get everything ready for the spring but part of me needs to at least fish tomorrow first! Nothing again today while working some good looking beach. Diamonds w/ and without teasers, SP's, rubber shads, and of course tipped bucktails. Saw some guls working while a ton of cormorants relaxed on top of the surface just in casting range w/ no action
  12. These are some great responses. And it's really insightful to see what others think about. I've had some very good trips up until recently (even after the snow) but no sign of life the last 3 days while working a good amount of beach. I love being out there as long as there's a chance at a fish. Hoping that those cold days didn't close the year for good. I did snag a sand flea today (which I found at least 20 in a stomach last week) so there's something for fish to eat but starting to think there may not be any fish to hold in an area. It's one of those times where I hope I'm wrong.
  13. Hi all I'm happy to be a part of this great forum I have been reading for a month or two now and am excited to get involved! Have you or when do you plan on giving up on fishing for stripers from the surf this season? Is it the 50 degree water mark? When the boat fishing reports slow down? When you stop seeing signs of sand fleas/eels any other bait that's still around? I don't want to stop fishing but I don't want to head to the beach without a shot of caching them either! In my mind I'm worried it could be over after the southerly winds change Monday that water is cooling off fast!
