  1. Fish around Boston and Lower Cape often. I am planning on going to the canal. Instead of going during the sunrise and low tide rush, I am planning on going at high tide in the evening. Never fished the canal before but hoping for some advice. Is the East End better at high tide? Planning on casting top-water plugs.
  2. How do you guys like to fish? I usually give a spot 30-45 minutes before I head to a different one if there's no action there. I just wonder if I'm missing out by not waiting it out and fishing that spot long enough on a particular tide...
  3. Hey all, Just wondering when you usually catch your first striper of the year in any given state. Just curious, Thanks
  4. Hey everyone, Last year was the first year in a boat trolling tube n worm for stripers. Did very well in rivers where depths maxed out at 35' (all the way down to 4') using unweighted tubes with 40-50# braided fishing line. I am wondering if it would be beneficial to add an egg sinker (and what weight to add) for deeper water? Or would it be worth it to get a dedicated lead core setup? Ive seen many posts online that say the tube *needs* to be close to the bottom or close to where the stripers are, but clearly that isn't true from my experience. I'm just wondering if its worth the money to go lead core to get the tube down further, especially if it would help me catch bigger or more fish. Obviously adding a lead weight won't cost much and I'll definitely be trying it out this season. Also, I did not have any luck fishing the ocean (Long Island Sound, CT side) with the tube and worm. Would getting my tube down deeper help in this situation? Fished a few times near reefs and shoreline/structure with no luck. Thanks! Sharing your experiences or adding your input would be very beneficial.
  5. We typically head up to Maine for a few weeks camping and surf cast fishing. Anyone know about camp grounds there? How about surf cast fishing? We have never visited but it looks very interesting for a new place for vaca. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
  6. Hi guys, as the striper season is weaning towards the end, I am going out to denver, colorado for a little 5 day vacation and the weather is going to be perfect to fish for stocked stripers and or wipers if possible, I will be out there with my plugs and soft plastics hoping to wake a few up, has anyone tried this before? Striper fishing in ponds and lakes can be wicked different than the surf and was wondering if you guys had any tips & or places to hit in denver for advice and etc. Just gonna snoop around not too far from denver so we may not travel too far out, thanks!
  7. What are the rules for fishing at Sandy Hook at night? Can I just drive in at 12:30am tonight and fish? Is there a gate? What's the deal?
  8. I know that there are probably a million posts on this site about rods and reels, but I still wanted to ask everyone about them. I wanted to get a Penn Spinfisher V 4500 size and a St Croix Mojo Surf 10 foot Medium Moderate Fast. I'll be mostly fishing Block Island and Long Island during the summer for blues and stripers from the surf (maybe the occasional albie). Was thinking about 20 lb braid. Does anyone have any suggestions? The reason I picked the Spinfisher is because it has a completely enclosed case and I want it to last a while. I was looking at the Battle 2 but it has all those holes and I don't want it to get filled with sand and water. Thanks
  9. What does the Fall migration look like in the Seacoast area? are there any rules of thumb when the bigger fish start to leave and then schoolies etc? There is definately a lot of buzz and excitement here about their arrival in the spring- but when do they start to move out and what does that look like? First Year fishing for Stripers in the Seacoast, Reading threw this years and previous years threads have been really helpful- Thanks for all of the shared information, I hope to be in a position to pass it on at some point.

    Dare I ask - How do I buy the proper parking permit for fishing areas out on the East End of Long Island - in mid-October. I'm ok with the local rich people making it difficult to fish anything out there except crowded ole' Montauk - but just don't make it impossible for me please. I know all those other areas out there hold fish often.
  11. 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?
  12. New to the Portland area and curious to hear some favorites from locals: 1. Tide/time of day? 2. Top water lure? 3. Swim/crank bait? 4. Colors? 5. Any local shops or people making good bucktails? So far I've been fishing the outgoing at dawn at a tidal river with moderately strong current. I've had some success using techniques that have worked for me in NYC/cape cod waters using white bucktails, bone sp minnow, tsunami swim shad and white/blue talkin popper, but I'm wondering if any locals have some experienced advice to offer. Thanks for any info, Ryan
  13. So I have a question I’m in the market for a new reel for stripers, blues and bottom it’s between Avet MXL 5.8 and the Seigler Small I’m coming here for your honest opinion on which one would you purchase and why?
  14. So pretty much I always see people recommending types of reels and rods but never actually see numbers example (fishing for fluke 7ft rod 20-30lb rated; single speed reel 5.2.1-6.0.1 that can handle 300 yards 30lb braid with 15 pound drag I am curious what are you recommendations for type of fish. I don’t want to know brands of rods or reels but more of the technical items u need to fight these fish I think this type of info definitely helps out. Add any other species you like to the list. 1. Fluke/sea bass 2. Blackfish 3. Stripers/blues 4. Weakfish 5. Cod 6. YFT

  16. Has anybody used the St Croix musky spinning rod? If so how well can it throw lures over 4 ounces? How stiff is it?
  17. Where are those Stripers??!!!
  18. I heard my first peepers of 2018 last night, that makes it official, no more snow. My snow blower is going out to pasture until next season. Spring is here, those pretty yellow flowers will soon be blossoming on the bushes signalling the arrival of herring, with stripers hot on their trail. Steamers begin next week for me as well. Longest winter in decades for me.
  19. Hi, this is my first post and I need a new rod. I was thinking about the new Tsunami Slow Pitch 7ft XH, wanted to know if anyone else used this rod (pros and cons). Or if anyone has any other recommendation. I’ll be using it for stripers/blues (deadsticking and jigging) and some deep ocean fluke jigging from time to time. Thanks
  20. Just got a new fly-fishing setup for stripers in creeks as well as chasing albies. It is a sage Flight 2 pc 8wt with a ros rapid 7/8 reel. I will primarily be throwing clousers and sandeel imitators. What kind of line and backing would be a fit for this.
  21. Hey all ~ I will be visiting Cape Cod in early July, I have rented a house in a canal, not the main canal, though. I'm planning on targeting striped bass, I also want to target any fish I can off the dock, so I'd like to ask if there are any lure recommendations for stripers, and any lure recommendations and guesses for what fish might be living around the dock? Thanks Josh
  22. Hello everyone, First post as a new member of the forum. My background: I put in a lot of time fishing the Cape & Islands 10-15 years ago. My usual shore haunts were the Canal, Bass River/Yarmouth area, and Nantucket. I also did some boat excursions around PTown & the Islands - all great times. Work took me away for about a decade, but I am now back in the Dartmouth/Wesport area, and if the fishing is going to be anything like I experienced this October, I am glad to be back! I am typically a bomber, eel and pencil/spook guy, but I have decided to spend some serious time with the fly rod next season. I got lucky on gear (found a 3-Tand T-90 on sale during Black Friday and a G-Loomis 4xPro Short Stix 9 wt on closeout) but I am looking for recs on a good all-purpose short head line to go with them. I'll be spending most of my time wading in & around moving water in Westport/Dartmouth targeting bass - I imagine I am going to be throwing a lot of clousers and sand eel patterns. Also want something I will be able to throw (from a boat) at Albies come fall. I imagine this means at least an intermediate and probably a sinking line. I would say I am a decent caster with plenty of room for improvement. What do you guys think? Best, StripeDoc
  23. I have heard much about the stripers at Fort Wadsworth but have seen some of the threads here about crime. Anyone fishing the area lately? Tired of going to Montauk especially when the fort is so close. It appears you may need to have a buddy with you due to the various issues. Anyone looking to meet me there almost any weekend?
  24. Hello SOL! New to this game, and like many before me, ‘hooked’ simply does not describe this obsession. I live in Bath, ME about 30 minutes north of Portland. I am not looking for spots or coordinates, but had a question about my location. Southern Maine has its famous beaches, but the options seem slimmer up in the Mid Coast. Is it worth putting in my hours in the mid coast? I want to conquer this area from the shore! Any insight or input is much appreciated. TL!
