So I recently just bought an ODM DNA Backbay 7'6" and only had it for a week and took it out this morning and found this?! Haven't even hooked up to anything big that would cause it to be under pressure for the epoxy to crack. I was shocked when I looked at it and saw that the epoxy had cracked all the way around the reel seat. I hope this is covered under their one year warranty? Anybody else's rod have this defect?
Hey guys. I live on staten island close to the water and do just about every kind of fishing here. I fish from the kayak, from the bay, midland beach, conference house, great kills, by the pier, off the jetty's, night fishing, day fishing, plugs, chunks and everything. The spring season I got a few nice bass of the yak. This summer I got some doormat fluke of the yak also. Lately I haven't heard of much action if any going on anywhere locally mainly cause its dead this time of year. Here and there I hear some reports of a bass picked off. The thing that stinks about staten island is that there isn't a great fishing community so there is no reports or websites for reports. I travel a lot down to Riis park for the surf but lately the fishing stinks over there also because of the whales and seals in the water pushing the fish away the past 2 seasons. Once the fall rolls on in I take the worthy 3 hour trip down to Montauk for a few days and go to LBI here and there. Also off the boat in jersey and etc. However there are times when I still catch bass off staten island plugging. Most people look at me like I have 3 heads when I try to explain what a lure is lol. The people here have mostly no clue what they are doing. Occasionally you will run into the real fishermen who know and they usually have an idea of what the fish are hitting and where. I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a staten island fishing report of some sort. Once mid September hits, I want to be out as much as possible all the way through December in the staten island, new jersey area fishing. Thanks a lot guys !
Hey guys, so yesterday I fished this skinny/shallow inlet throughout high tide (low tide is inaccessible for fish) and I found schools of bunker cruising the surface with their mouths open, along with small unknown baitfish. I had fish this area once a month ago and caught tons of schoolies, I came back today knowing that bigger baitfish were here with potential bigger stripers. I threw everything in my bag (even a live eel) with no hits. Am I doing something wrong? Or is it possible that no predators were in the area? Are striped bass known to go in shallow water, or are they hidden in the deep pockets near the rocks? I spent hours trying to figure out what was the problem. If you want to know the spot, PM me. Its somewhere in Peconic Bay, NY.
