  1. Hey all, new here and looking for some pointers on fishing in the Adirondacks. I've been late summer camping there for the last 4 years and never seem to land any big fish. First question: I usually use a spinner with live bait (nightcrawlers) or soft plastics but only seem to catch really small fish. I've tried a ton of lures (spinners, poppers, jigs, spoons) from shore and from canoe (don't have a boat yet to troll from) but haven't found any real success. Wondering what lures work best and how/where to find something other than oversized minnows. Second question: Most recently, I brought up my usual spinner and tried fishing the Ausable River near Wilmington, NY but had no luck...even though it was an incredibly beautiful area and I still had a blast. Now, thinking I need to dive into flyfishing (I'm a glutton for punishment and gear) - wondering what type of rod/reel and flies I should start out with to get going. I'm usually up near Saranac Lake and the surrounding lakes - wondering if anyone has any pointers to help me land some bigger fish. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi all, Finally getting into surfcasting on long island and just got my outer beach pass for my 4runner. I see that this post is from 2014 so just wondering if there any new air compressors that I should have on my radar. I see that the Viair 400p comes recommended by a lot of people and I'm pretty sure that's what I'll go with - but wanted to check with you all first - thanks in advance!
