  1. Thank you - missed that but I wound up on Nauset beach. No action but a lot of seals.
  2. Thank you = good info
  3. That's confusing - I went last spring to the appointment over by aviator with my truck and they gave me a hunter green sticker, and then I got the regular fishing pass which was white. (I lost the green one, and they will not replace it). Maybe you can help me with some info - I am able to get the regular breezy sticker but I don't believe I can legally go down on the sand with it. I know there's a 4x4 breezy specific sticker, but I asked my family that lives there and they can't figure out how to get that one (maybe commercial vehicles only). Will the parks dept leave my car alone if I have the regular breezy sticker and fishing pass?
  4. I am going to be in Wequassett for a wedding and I have approximately 7 free hours to try to fish. I am wondering if there's anywhere close to this area that would be a good place to surfcast. I am not looking for any spot burns - but I would appreciate any input on areas, parking, locations etc. Thank you.
  5. This is the type of input I was looking for. Thank you.
  6. I figured this would be a busy time of year, probably looking to order before the spring. Thank you for the info I'll look into it.
  7. Slightly off-topic but I have a Penn reel about 8-9 (not a z) years old. I kept having issues with wind knots and I used it with different length rods and braids. I called Penn and they recommended switching to fireline, and I haven't had a single issue since. I'd give it a shot.
  8. Awesome - that's 2 for Mark, Any opinion on the VS?
  9. That's not too far, thank you I'll give him a call.
  10. Thanks for the input. I have not used a VS and honestly, I don't plan on dunking it unless absolutely necessary. I'm more interested in casting and durability. I don't need to show off I'm more just looking for the highest quality. I do like that it's sealed but I'm not even sure it's worth the extra money over some other quality reels out there. In the past, I've always been faithful to Penn and that's all I've really used.
  11. Amen!
  12. I am looking to upgrade my 9 ft. set up and I would like some advice. From most of my research, I am thinking of a Lamiglas blank (I was thinking either nightshift 10ft and cut down 6 or 12 inches or the skinner 9ft). When it comes to a reel obviously a VS is the gold standard and I would think a 175 or 200 would be good enough for a 9ft. rod. The problem (as most of us have) is the price. Here are my questions: 1. Are there any recommendations out there for a custom rod builder in NYC/LI? 2. Are there any other rods/blanks/reels that compare to above at a better price range? I plan on doing mostly plugging and live eeling with this rod. Mainly on rock jetties/sandy beaches, and inlets. Please let me know - any advice is much appreciated.
  13. Funny you should say that - I got both the fishing permit (white) and the 4x4 permit (green) this year. Unfortunatly the 4x4 pass got lost in a move, SMH. I should be able to use that launch in Floyd bennet though, Didn't even think of it, thank you for the advice!
  14. I wouldn't imagine a fish could survive there!
  15. They built some Groins on the ocean-facing beaches in Rockaway this past winter. I've already had about 5 close calls between moss, waves, and wind - starting to think it's worth just fishing around them instead of on top of em.
