  1. I also go to UMass and would be interested in learning more about this. Consensus around here seems to be Puffers
  2. I assume the threat will die out as winter approaches? And next season will be safe?
  3. Hey guys, There is some slight rust beginning to form on my hook keeper. Do you guys have any advice on what to do to prevent the rust from spreading? is it even possible that it will spread to the rest of the rod from the hook keeper? Any general advice? Thanks
  4. Thing is my season is already over now as I head out to college in western MA tomorrow so I'm fine with putting the rod away for a 1 month repair. And why ask for 2 coats of epoxy?
  5. I cant imagine it being that bad. Looks like I wont be at the canal in the near future

  7. I will be getting a better rod/reel next season, looking to spend around $200-300. Would like to keep this one though because it is good and would be nice to have to just throw bait out as I use lures on the other rod.
  8. No the ceramic ring fell off the 2nd guide down. Rod tip ceramic ring is hanging in there but I'd like it replaced as it got pretty beat up this season
  9. Hey guys, I use an 8'0" penn fierce II rod with a 5000 fierce spin reel. Total set up cost me around $110. Recently I noticed the ceramic ring fell off my guide and the local shop quoted me around $30 for the entire guide to be replaced plus the replacement of the rod tip. Is this a good deal for a rod that cost $110. Just want to do my due dilligence on this. I have no experience replacing guides so that should be better left to a professional. Thanks
  10. Hey guys, I'll be going to south Jersey shore this weekend for a few days and definitely want to get some fishing in. It'll be mostly from surf. I have an 8 foot rod, what type of jigs/bait/lures would work best this time of year? Plan to hit it early morning or at night. Would I be good fishing from surf with just an SP minnow? If not, what are your suggestions? Thanks!
  11. what knot do you use to tie sp minnows? i find i will waste a lot of line wrapping it around a 7 inch minnow doing polamars
  12. Hey guys, Just wondering if you guys use snaps to quickly cycle between tackle without having to retie knots. I recently started to use them and have today lost 2 fish (one on a circle hook and one on an sp minnow). I'm wondering if I'm losing these fish because of the snaps that I am using. Do you guys have any advice on using these things without losing fish? I also lost an sp minnow today attached to a snap that just snapped off as I was casting it. Hate to see $13 thrown away like that. All help is appreciated.
  13. pencil poppers?
  14. Does improper drag contribute to gut hooking a fish?
