  1. Although we fish frequently in our lakes and streams at home I am fairly new to surf fishing and my 2 children (11 and 8) are also very interested in anything fishing. Last year we took our first family trip to Sandy Hook and we had fun (there were a few fish thank goodness) and we plan on taking another trip in about 2 weeks to try our hand at stripers and winter flounder. We are going equipped with 2 surf rods (10' and 8') and two of my medium-light rods (6'6" range) that we use at the lakes around home, the surf rods will have Daiwa BG reels (5000 and 3000) with 20lb braid on the bigger reel and 17lb mono on the smaller reel, the lighter rods will have Daiwa BG 2000 series with 15lb braid. Also we have sinkers from 1oz to 5oz and circle hooks ranging from #2 all the way to 8/0, bucktail jig in a few different sizes, top water lures, metal spoons and some Berkley Gulp that I keep reading the flounder like. Is there any advice you may give from rigs that might work better this time of year, bait, etc.. and do you think I would be better off on the North side of the beach and is there any benefits on fishing either the ocean side or bay side of the hook? I read the post about spot burning and I am not asking for that kind of information, but just a little insight, please don't get yourself in trouble if I am asking the wrong questions. Thank you for any advice you are will to give to help me keep this fun for the kids.
  2. I would like to thank everyone that participated in yesterdays Ward Melville HS Fishing Expo and Fundraiser. The show every years is an awesome one to put on and an experience and a half for the kids to participate in. From the vendors to all the guests that visited us....we would like to thank you for supporting us. Something of note. For the past several years, we have tried to promote an angle to our show....the FREE TACKLE GIVEAWAY to visitors (not club kids) that are what we consider "youth" anglers (5 to 20 years old). The participating "youth" anglers participate in a scavenger hunt of sitting in on seminars to visiting either hands on workshop areas or education/conservation minded vendors that are spread throughout the show. The past 2 years, we are left over with a good amount of tackle and what not. I usually go and donate some to other causes around Long Island and I also raffle some off to the kids of the Ward Melville Fishing Club. This year we were nearly WIPED out. That's close to 2000 shirts, jigs, rigs, lures and miscellaneous other stuff combined....probably well over 2000 but you get the picture. We are (and I know many people at the show have told me the same) seeing more and more kids coming to the show and we are now seeing greater participation. This is a credit to all that have made the show what it has become. It is something awesome to say the least, the best of the fishing community. I know a large amount of guys that come to the show also go on SOL and wanted to share this. I also wanted to let you know that I posted the raffle winners on our website as well as the clubs instagram account. calls will be made later on today for those that were not able to stay for the drawing. Thank you Bob Wilson
  3. I am seeing kayaks for sale in a lot of places. Probably getting two for my boys. 8 and 11. They are good swimmers. Kayaking areas would be freshwater, buzzards bay and sounds of NC. They both like fishing. What kind of comparison data is available on major brands? What brands do people avoid?
  4. after they found out that donkey they all have raped has rabies now after they get vaccinated they will go like many others towards europe as immigrants, especially now that the deed is uncovered and even if many do such things there, it is a good shaming point
  5. My 5 year old granddaughter caught her first fish the other day(a little sunfish in a pond) and she's really excited to try it again. I told her once you catch a fish you are allowed to exaggerate and make up a good fish story. She can't wait to have some fun with that. I'd like to take her somewhere in the Bourne area for scup or sea bass such as a local beach or dock or a safe jetty to walk on. The canal is out of the question. I wouldn't mind going to Falmouth or Wareham. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  6. I've got four boys who love to fish. RIght now they are into quanity and I'd love to find a place/time to get them on stripers from the beach, regardless of size. They spend Summers down in Naragansett with their grandparents and are always askingme about striper fishing. Really only have time to fish during the Summer, any thoughts? bait or lures? rigs? Thanks in advance.
