  1. What is everyone’s favorite type of braid to use on their saltwater fishing reels from the surf? Like what do you feel gets you a longer distance? Thanks
  2. We all have a lot of free time now.. So I spend every day couple hours or our local lake. We have some trout, bass, crappies, sunfish, and cat fish there. This year trout was not stocked in our lake because of carnivorous... but we still have some of them left from the last year stocking.. Will be interesting to see what you have on your lake! Good luck and stay healthy!
  3. Hello name ant from the north jersey area 25 minutes away from the gwb, looking for people to meet up go fish and if you do have a boat would love to go out when you take it out! I have the gear i just need to find someone thats docks in the hudson river NJ side!
  4. My uncle lives in Connecticut and I have been wanting to plan a trip and I would like to go fishing while I’m there but I’m not sure what to use when it comes to bait and how tides affect fishing I am from Florida.
  5. The stripers are here! Time to get the reports going. Please, be considerate in your reports, i.e., don't be so specific that you could spot burn but share enough to contribute to the spirit of "sharing is caring".
  6. Hello! I have been to the Beverly pier many times. I have fished at the pier and at the marina place where the parking is. I have not caught anything at the marina, just a squid. However, on the pier, I have caught mackerel. Has anyone had the luck of catching other species like flounders or stripers? I think the crabs get to the bait before the fish can. Has anybody caught tog there maybe when dropping down to a piling? Info is appreciated. Thanks!
  7. Anyone know any spots to (legitimately) pitch tents close to montauk? I know now about Hither Hills but they are always booked and East Hamptons is far, been nearly 40/45 minutes to the point. Anyone know now any good spots to pitch tents in and around Montauk? I called the state park “Teddy Roosevelt” but apparently they don’t allow tent camping. Many ideas and thanks in advance.
  8. Hello, I am new to this website and I am an avid 14 year old fisherman. I go to the canal probably around twice a year. I have not caught a fish yet and have only been twice. I think my gear is not good enough because I can't cast very far and I don't know any locations. Is the TFO GIS Mag Surf rod a good option? Could anybody drop an easy but good location that I could get to. Also could anybody give me recommendations on rods that can cast 5oz plus jigs and poppers. Can somebody also explain to me the new/full moon and the breaking tides thing and when that occurs. Thanks so much!
  9. Hello, I am 14 years old and love fishing. I live about an 1 1/2 hours from plum island and go fishing there in the summer. It is sometimes very costly for me to go because of the time waste if I don't catch anything. I was wondering if anybody has any intel on fishing the merrimack river for stripers by surfland bait and tackle or in other words the mouth of the river. Any comments are appreciated. Thanks!
  10. Hello, I am 14 years old and currently have two surf rods that I share. I have a 9 foot Daiwa, (FTS902MFS) medium heavy. I also have a Hurricane MAKO, (1002SRF) medium heavy. The line recommendation on the hurricane rod is 17-40. Currently, I have 50 lb zebco line spooled on but I believe the line diameter is too thick thus not creating long casts. The weight rating is 2-6 oz also. I was wondering if this is good enough for the canal to start out with. I am new to the canal and live about an hour and a half away. I was wondering if I should minimize my line strength to 30 creating more line capacity on my spool and thinner diameter. What lures should I use on my two rods? Could somebody explain to me when the best time is for fishing? I heard something about a new moon tide and breaking tide but I don't know how to recognize it and don't fully understand it. Any help is appreciated.
  11. Up for sale is my Islander LX 4.0 reel. Asking $375 shipped or $365 local pickup. with Rio WF10 F/I fly line and backing. No longer using this size reel as I have moved back up north. Local pickup in Baltimore, Maryland or I can ship USPS priority. I have bought and sold lots of items on here and never had an issue. This is an awesome reel with a great drag sound if you like to hear the real scream.
  12. Just wondering if there are any other kayak fishing clubs on Long Island? I’d really like to join one. Always nice to have company and share information with others. I know about KFA. Are there any others?
  13. im just north of Boston and im trying to catch my first tog and hopefully some more keepers. i went fishing off the jetty yesterday past the lighthouse at Scituate to mess around and lost every jig i put out there on the rocks lol. i only had blue crabs at the time that i was cutting in half. * now im trying to head out with my hobie and maybe cover some structure and rocks north of the lighthouse. as long as the weather is nice i can fish anywhere from the plum islands to the cape if anyone wants to meet up and fish. im busy in the evenings so itll be first light to about noon. the crabs will last about 5 days he said so they'll be good until thur/fri.

  16. Hi all, I am at student at UMass Amherst, and am in desperate need of some places to fish. I would ideally like to target largemouth, smallmouth, trout or anything else up here that is willing to bite. I have no idea where to fish. I have tried a few ponds I've seen on google maps, but have had minimal success. I have two spinning rods with staple freshwater lures (jerkbaits, spinner baits, spinners, jigs, plastics, topwater, etc.), as well as a fly rod with some basic flies. I am definitely more apt to fish with spin tackle though. It's also worth noting that I have a pair of fishing waders. Can anyone direct me to any spots that have shore fishing access near Amherst? I have access to a car and willing to drive up to 45 minutes away. I would love to fish some places like the Connecticut River, the Deerfield, or the Oxbow, but have no idea where these places have shore access or where to even start fishing bodies of water like that. I am new to StripersOnline, and this seems like an awesome resource for fishermen. I am from South Jersey and spend the majority of time fishing at home in the back bays or in the ocean for stripers, flounder, weakfish, bluefish, or anything else that bites. I also fish a lot of small ponds near me. I would consider myself a good fisherman, but have caught very little in Mass since coming up here. I feel very much out of my element. I would greatly appreciate any advice or tips on how to fish in the Pioneer Valley.

  18. Specifically after rinsing your reel off. I know you should use reel oil for the best results, but has anyone had any experience with WD 40 on reels for rust prevention etc?
  19. I was just wondering if anyone here has had any experience or luck using a drop shot rig while fishing in saltwater. My thoughts are to rig a mirrolure soft plastic shad like I would a plastic worm or lizard for catching bass I don't see why that wouldn't work. Any thoughts or tips on rigging soft plastics for saltwater in general?
  20. I need a great pair of pliers for Salt Water. I am not terribly concerned with the price, I just don't want to ever buy another pair unless it is my fault (lost, traded for hookers and blow, etc.). * I have already considered the P-Line, but my fear is they are made in China. I will call P-Line Monday and ask where the pliers are made. Any suggestions will be appreciated!
  21. Looking to buy jointed mambo minnows. Any color will do and slight use is fine. Thanks for looking!
  22. Anyone with some recommendations and what to order? Whenever I go to the shore, I'm nostalgic for a slice of pizza on the boardwalk, or a hotdog at the Windmill. There used to be a great seafood place in Asbury Park called Net Lanes. It was like a diner. But I think it closed down years ago.
  23. Hi all, New to the forum but I just recently purchased a couple of Hobie's for me and my son. Any suggestions on good locations to fish, where to launch, etc. Thanks!!
  24. Good morning everyone, I have a pretty extensive book collection when it comes to fishing books, (how to, stories, guides, basically everything. But I’m always looking to add more to the collection. Anyone have any recommendations. Rare books or discontinued ones. If there still in print I most likely have it, but I’d still like to hear what everyone thinks. Thanks!
