  1. Absolutely loving my tsunami airwave elite “light surf.” 8ft and quality components for a good price. I got this rod as my “albie rod”
  2. Washing after every outing will seriously increase the life expectancy of your boots. I used loctite on my triple threats and they've been good for a year, still in one piece. The dry rot on the back strap is real though. Maybe if you're not using the boots for an extended period of time it may be best to take the soles out. Just a guess.
  3. I've lived in both Rhode Island and Long Island. What you're saying is definitely true. The limiting factor is access. Narragansett bay is loaded with spots where you can park for free and vertically drop a crab for a keeper tog. I'd really like to get Long Island tog dialed in but I don't have the patience. I wouldn't be caught dead at Shinnecock on opening day either.... We have our own strengths. I've found the shore fluking far superior here in NY.
  4. South shore was dead flat this weekend, at least when I was out
  5. I’d want a longer rod with medium power.
  6. Fish blitzing just out of casting range this morning on a south shore beach. Shoulder to shoulder people on the beach trying to reach them. Saw some whales come in 200 yards from shore. Gonna try live eels on the north shore tonight.
  7. Saw the sun today. That’s it that’s the report.
  8. They’re around, but I agree they’re not chased as aggressively. Still a great time with ultra light tackle under dock lights.
  9. Rhody. Access is incredible (compared to my home state NY) Great for a shorebound guy like me.
  10. I had an unreal day catching mostly slots and over slots on a GT ice cream. Haven’t had a day like that in awhile, bass blowing up on my lure until one hit that single swing hook. Great lure for the conditions, 3oz. and casts a mile. Saw some very large fish get caught yesterday.
  11. +1 on the stradics. A lot of reel for a great price.
  12. I’ll take em for $65 shipped
  13. Cracked my windshield for the 2nd time in 6 months. Unpaved highways and rocks flying up and hitting my car. I'm flying through windshields!
  14. Most fun I've ever had shore toggin is dropping vertically off piers and other structures. When the tog come shallow it's my favorite way to fish, especially when the water is high and the visibility is crystal. I use bottom sweeper jigs in various weights and drop an Asian shore crab (or two if they are small) down and wait. If conditions are really good you may even see your crab get ate. Use a short and stiff rod to muscle that fish out of the structure. Definitely true what others were saying about "drumming up" a bite. As you keep dropping crabs down and feeding the fish more fish will come to investigate. Don't try to set the hook on every little bite either. Wait for the "the one." It's impossible to describe and can only be figured out by trial and error.
  15. Found what I’m looking for. Thanks everyone for all the recommendations above and thanks SOL.
