  1. Thank you so much, would not be possible without a co angler and my custom lift that puts me in my boat but I manage! I am able to get myself into the drivers seat and my co angler gets the entire front of the boat, often times that means that I keep them in the schooling fish while they catch and I drive but thats ok the fish gods certainly repaid me.
  2. South of Portland, I fish in the Piscataqua.
  3. Thank you both! I am paralyzed from chest level down with almost no abdominal strength, on pretty light inshore gear it was very tough.
  4. Went out on Friday and the Bunker were everywhere but could not get a bass to bite. Today they were back and I decided to snag one with a jig and throw it on a circle hook and boy am I glad I did. This is the biggest fish I have ever caught, and as a paraplegic, it was quite the fight! I was so concerned about getting it back in the water I did not think to throw a tape on it.
  5. Smack it jr is always my first try.
  6. I use a lot of Hogy lures, they are some of my favorites. The paddletails are good but I really like the slow tails, a little more action out back.
  7. I am also curious if you had any luck. I am in a chair myself and have not managed to find anywhere I can fish from shore yet.
  8. Not sure of the others, but I frequently use the 5” mambos with 3/0 owner inlines any bigger and they do not swim right.
  9. I just got a 7’ MH HMG inshore that is significantly faster feeling than my 7’ MH St. Croix Triumph, at $99 it is a pretty solid option. Also might be worth looking at the Star Stellar lite fast taper, I have a 6’6’ Medium action that is an awesome rod.
  10. I went through the same thing last summer looking for jr’s, looked and called everywhere with no luck and even had places tell me they weren't being made anymore. Over the winter they popped up on several sites and I stocked up on what I consider to be a lifetime supply of my favorite smackits, maybe the same will happen this winter.
  11. 8’ st croix mojo cat with 5000 stradic would be my pick. I used that rod as a jack of all trades bicycle setup to fish all of the spots that were closed to parking during covid. 1 rod and a backpack got it done for a whole year for me.
  12. No, but if I was going to it would be a mountain biking knee/shin guard. You may spend a little more but you will not find anything safer or more comfortable if your looking for leg protection. Get something made from D3O and it will be nice and soft and you will not even know they are there. take a look at Gform pads
  13. I did the same yesterday and was not lucky enough to see anything, we still caught a few but nothing like what you got into.
  14. I try to stay as close to the listed weight as possible but will sometimes go over. Today I was casting a 1.4oz jig on a rod rated to 1.25oz, I just toned down the cast a bit and the rod felt great.
  15. I am not a fan of TA clips either, Fastachs get my vote.
