  2. For sale. Fished once. Mint. Tranx 300a with powerhandle and spooled with 15lb jbraid. Nexus 7’ extra heavy. Awesome fluke combo. Great for jigging tog. $400 local pickup Queens/Nassau
  3. As the the title states, who has one and how do you fish it? I'm curious, as a learning experience, as to how people are setting it up for fluke, tog and striped bass. Especially if you're from the cape or long island, montauk, jersey... What test braid are you using for each specific species. What are you finding it can handle real world in terms of sinker weight, diamond jigs... I appreciate Kil's perspective, but he also may be fishing a different technique and I'd like to know how it's working out for others.

  8. For sale is a shimano tranx 300a upgraded with jigging world power handle. Spooled with 15lb jbraid. Fished once and rinsed down. $260 shipped in the US.
  9. Just curious what others are thinking. Been reading the study and surrounding articles about the striper population being under severe stress. Several commentaries from folks at the trade pubs talking both sides of the slot limit argument and approach. What do you think we need to do to ensure the next couple generations have striped bass out there to torment them? Slot? Closure? Really interesting to read how much worse the morbidity on released fish is compared to my personal assumptions. As one who sucks at catching bass in Western CT, I guess the only consolation is not being a proportionally large part of the problem.
  10. Hello! I've got a few questions about fishing for striped bass during the winter months, as I REALLY don't wanna be playing video games indoors and would rather be catching fish! So here are my questions; Where do you fish for them? What lures to throw? What tactics should I use to find some fish (Doesn't matter if its big or small I'm just trying to get some fish!) And also I live in the Fairfield Area. Any information is very appreciated!!! Tight lines!
  11. For sale is a brand new tranx 300. Low gear. Spooled with 20lb Jbraid chartreuse. Jigging world power handle added. $250 shipped.
  12. Stopped by tackle world today. Looked at their selection, Shogun, black demon, black widow, and the Dark Knight. The Dark Knight was the closest in weight, action, and backbone. Infact, if blind folded, I would have a hard time telling the two apart. That being said, the challenger 7’3m is rated 20-25lbs and the Dark Knight 7’2 is rated 30-65lbs. I didn’t have my challenger with me to compare on the spot. I looked at mine when i got it. So I didn’t pick it up as I’ve wanted a second. Has anyone handled a Dark Knight or fished it? Is it really a 30-65lb rod or is this greatly exaggerated. I can’t imagine a 30-65 being advertise as an all around inshore including fluke. Seems like a great tog rod tho.
  13. For sale: Brand new never been fished Jigging World Black Widow 150S. Rated 15-30lb. Please note, some are used to the old green color they used, they are now blue. This comes with a Shimano Stradic Fk 4000. Also never been fished. Please note that a jigging World Power knob has been added. Original knob will be included. Fairly priced at $360 picked up Brooklyn/Queens/Nassau Will also trade for a brand new with tags Blackhole Challenger 7’3M conventional (non spiral) and a few bucks my way.

  18. Hey there! I've got a question about where to fish for striped bass(either big or small, I'm just trying to catch some fish!) in the winter months (December-March) and what to use to catch them (lures,tactics,etc.) I live in Ct. and also if there are some fellow Connecticut fisherman could you give me some recommendations as well? All help is very appreciated!!!
  19. Hi guys! I have some questions about what I've heard is one of the most versatile lures out there; The Buck tail. Now, I rarely use these and that's probably a bad thing as from videos on you tube, forums and articles they say they produce a lot and even catch some pretty nice sized bass! I've only used buck tails for fluke but want to try it for striped bass. In my Area, there are mostly bass in the 12-24 inch range (mostly school bass) but sometimes a 28 inch or bigger will appear. So my questions are; What size buck tails should I purchase? How should I fish these buck tails? and what are some other methods and tactics to use Buck tails? All help is very appreciated!!! Tight lines!
  20. Hi there! Fishing newbie here with another question, Do swivels/fishing clips scare away your fish? especially striped bass? I know when you are using hard baits it doesn't really matter but sometimes I use a jig head and soft plastic and wonder if that scares away the fish. All help is appreciated!
  21. Howdy! Fishing newbie here with another question, what are some good lures or lure colors for dirty/murky water? I'm targeting schoolie striped bass and bigger. There's a lot of rain coming my way down here in CT, but I just can't wait the two to three days of water clearing up after all this rain. That's probably just what I have to do to catch a few fish but I still really wanna try! The conditions are probably gonna be cloudy, breaks in between when its gonna rain in the day, I'm gonna fish in a creek and then the mouth that connects it to a channel and marina/harbor. I hate playing damn video games inside and would rather save it for the winter! All help is VERY appreciated!!! Tight lines!

    How successful have y'all been in livening scup? i had some 40's on liveling from shore. saw a 70 doing it and didn't even believe they got that big!!
  23. Hello! fishing newbie back with another question, anybody know any ''good'' or working hard baits for Striped bass in the size range from 14-28 inches? Any of these hard baits could be top water, swimmers, poppers etc, trying to imitate a peanut bunker (small menhaden) or small baitfish. I'm just in need of some hard bait lures right now as an alternative to soft plastic baits. All recommendations and help is GREATLY appreciated!!!
  24. Hi! I'm a bit of a newbie and new to this site, I have one question about striped bass handling, whats THE way or other ways to hold a striped bass from the ranges of 10 inches to 25 inches, I mostly catch schoolie striped bass in my area. I try to prevent them from flopping on the ground, as they can injure themselves from articles I've read. I lip them sometimes or even place the fish on my fore arm to support them to take a quick picture, anything I'm doing wrong here? and what are good ways to handle and hold them properly? all help is very appreciated!

  25. Hi All, new to the community here, I will be in Goose Rocks Beach Maine for a few days, I primarily surf cast in southern RI and the CCC. I am planning on trying surf casting over there but have a bay boat to get a little further out there if the shore fishing is slow. I was planning on loading up on mackerel Al Gags and poagie chunking. I have lots of top water plugs and divers, needles etc, any recommendations for that costal area?
