  1. Looking for opinions on your favorite spook-type lure in the 1-2oz range. Something that rides high and of course, has great action.
  2. Maybe I missed it or I just couldn’t find it with the search but is there a thread running for the 2022/2023 fishing shows/flea markets in the Tri state area?
  3. my wife says you have one too many kayaks. Purchased in June 2022 $1500 OBO this unit is barely used. If you are looking for a budget friendly kayak this is the one. 13 ft long with seat risers, Yak Attack safety flag, scuppers. A very stable boat, used in freshwater only. I live in NH willing to deliver within reason.

  5. It’s been 24 years since I last caught a Maine bluefish. This morning was a nice surprise with multiple mid to high 30” blues. I know many people that have been catching them the past few years up here, but I’m not one of them. I sure hope they stick around for a little while!

  8. I’m reaching out to see if anybody else fish off of a Jetski? I’ve recently purchase a Fish Pro and I love it. I want to start going off shore 10-15 miles. But I don’t want roll out there solo, having that second Jet Ski could be a life saver. Tight lines!
  9. I haven’t fished in several years due to time and raising kids. My oldest is going with me now, did I read it correctly that you can only harvest 1 striped bass and 3 bluefish?
  10. So, I’ve decided to get my feet wet and start fishing some custom plugs at the advice of some other members here! Although I don’t like to admit it, I don’t know a whole lot about custom plugs! I’m definitely learning what some of them are and who the makers are! I’ve played around with a couple different plugs, mostly top waters, as I love to work pencil poppers and always have! So, I don’t really need any help with the pencils! I guess my big question is, what plugs should I start out and stick with? I know everybody’s big on metal lips and darters and I think swarters lol, Pikies! I know there’s a bunch of different types of wood swimmers and such! So if anybody has any advice on what sizes and weights to start out with, I pretty much know what colors work around here! But, I would love to hear what most of you feel are the most productive costums, here in the Jersey Shore waters! And if it’s been asked before, apologies in advance lol! Thanks! EA
  11. I am just beginning to get into surf fishing and I’m looking to purchase a rod and a reel. Any suggestions on an affordable set up for a rod, reel, line and etc.? What brands are best for rod and reels? Looking to spend less than $200 for everything. Thanks!
  12. I am searching for any information regarding the action and how to fish each type of plug. Unfortunately I have not grown up using plugs, nor do I know anyone who has. I have searched videos, articles, and on here. If anyone has any tips or can point me to the right direction, I am in great appreciation to all of you. Thank you.
  13. Looking to sell my Old Town Sportsman 106 fishing kayak. I bought it in January, and have used it three times. It is a great boat, very stable and holds 450lbs. Plenty of room for a larger person like myself (6'2" 350lbs). I'm ready to upgrade to a pedal drive or powered unit. Looking for $900, cart not included. Located in Southern DE, willing to meet locally. Thanks for looking!
  14. Got a 12/0 to go with a 60-130 rod and im a little stuck on how I should do the line. I want to do the line in a way so I don’t have to worry about fishing near rocks because I wouldn’t want to get cut off. How would I do that? Less braid more mono? Like 600 yards of braid and rest mono? Or all mono? But then I heard of all mono messing up the spool so idk. If y’all have any suggestion plz hit me with them.
  15. Hi last year was really my first year kayak fishing for fluke. I got a older petal drive kayak in fall. I would like to go out for blue fish and stripers this year with it. How do you guys organize your tackle. There’s limited space that’s within reach and no room under the seat of my yak. I normally surf fish and I don’t see my surf bag being a great option.
  16. Fiberstar Composite Predator blank with Fuji and American parts custom wrapped. Blank is about $220, parts/materials about $150, labor about $200. Reel is a new Penn Torque II 5000 with 40lb power pro line $700 Take the total package for $800 before the season start.
  17. I'm Selling a Custom Made Cape Cod Canal Lure Bag that I purchased 25 years ago and I also added the Van Staal Patch. It's a Heavy Duty Surf Bag as pictures will show. It measures 7 3/4 inches in height and 12 inches long top and bottom and 8 inches wide. Back Pocket is 4 1/2 wide and Front Pocket 3 1/2 inches wide. It also has 6 Bucktail Holders. I don't know who made bag maybe SC will know. I'm asking $550.00 or $575.00 shipped. I'm in Suffolk County Long Island. Thank You rreelman!
  18. Forgive me if I'm not asking this is the correct area. Now don't get jealous I just bought a Swifty 9.5 for fishing on a small local pond. Why you may ask, I need something I can pull on a cart behind a small segway. Due to the amount of wind on the pond I believe that skegs would be a huge plus since the pond catches a fair amount of wind. The swifty does not have a flat surface on the back to mount a skeg. What I am wondering if I can use 2 small skegs one on each side at an angle or am I better off to install a rudder?
  19. Not really a question, just sharing a funny little story at the intersection of politics and fishing. Unless, of course, people have strong feelings about the Mayor resigning or the fact that ice fishing shanties are apparently used for prostitution.
  20. I'm sick of going to the same spots and getting skunked over and over. At what point do you say this isnt fun anymore I'm just wasting time and money with nothing to show for it except a fish or two you cant even keep. And Ive noticed more often than not the crowd of people along the water with me arent finding fish either. I'm going to try surf casting this season and experiment at new areas along the coast instead of digging through forums for a popular place to fish only to go there and be disappointed. But Im not sure what I should be looking for, what are promising signs of fish. lIf im going to explore I want to at least do it methodically based on logic instead of just hoping this is a lucky spot. Obviously theres increased activity at dawn and dusk. Is the middle of the night a time of inactivity like middle of the day typically is? Then you have the tides that play a role. From what Ive gathered the moving tide creates underwater movement and turbulance that releases food and nutrients for baitfish and/or disorients them. Our target fish then move in on these vulnerable bait fish. Ive read the sweet spot is 2 hours before or after high and low tides is that right? Why would you want to start fishing 2 hours before high tide? i can see 2 hours after high tide, the water starts picking up speed and carrying baitfish from their inland waterways toward the open ocean, forcing them through chokepoints along the way that Target fish exploit. But 2 hours before high tide, the water is moving lazily inland I dont understand why that would be beneficial for action. And im not sure why there is an advantage of fishing around low tide. What other environment features can you read like you can a chokepoint? In a cove for example are you more likely to find fish at the entrance or deep inside? in shade or in shadow ? are they attracted to current eddies or calmer water? I know fish like structure would it be useful to study underwater topography charts where can i access detailed charts on a specific area?
  21. I started getting serious about surf fishing this season. My main goal is to start targeting sharks. I just bought an okuma solaris surf rod. 12ft heavy action. It has the ability to lob up to 16 ounces of lead. I also have a df100a on the way and some carbon washers to boot. It's nothing fancy and I still plan on getting a penn prevail or airwave rod for my bg 8000. Anyone else wanna share what they started with for surf sharks?

    Hello, I recently tried to make the Holly Cattell bangle from the cookson project book. Using my little butane torch, I had real problems soldering the 5mm bead onto the ends of the 3mm silver wire. I spent all evening trying, and eventually gave up. The next day, out of interest, I tried again using my plumber's propane torch. No finesse whatsoever, but with a big roaring flame, it soldered perfectly first time. So, was my problem that the little butane torch wasn't up to the job? A friend told me it should be sufficient because it gets hot enough to melt the solder, but surely it's not just the heat, but the amount of it that also counts? (the little torch didn't even make the silver glow red, the big one did very quickly). If I do need to buy another torch, would something like a Sievert do? I have read the forums and a lot of people like the Smith's little torch, but it's a bit out of budget at the moment. So i I decided to Google if are there any free torches I could get luckily I came that promised free torches but I just have to pay for shipment only so I did. Guess what? I got delivery 2 days ago.
  23. Greetings, I just joined and was interested in those who collect lures and what screw tails Bomber Long A's any one had. I have over 200 and I know I am missing 80+ colors. Bomber made so many variants on top of all the different color patterns. I am still missing a Pumpkinseed color.
  24. Just removed this great ladder rack from my F150 in order to install a cap.... This is a Thule black steel ladder rack made to fit all full size pick up trucks.
