  6. i'm in california, fishing a couple unstocked small lakes (3 to 7 acres) near my house. so, urban, shore fishing. everyone is going for panfish, lmb, catfish, and the occasional trout (when they are stocked). almost everyone uses bobbers and bait, and artificial baits. they set their rods out on spikes, bobbers, and sit with their bait or powerbait on their hooks. i'm a pretty active type person, so i seem to like lures. i'm using kastmasters and mepps - small lures, 1/8 oz or less, 8# mono, a fenwick ultralight rod. no leader. i may jig by the shore, if it's deep. otherwise i cast and try different depths out in the middle of the lake. other times i run my lure along the shore, avoiding snags. so i figure i'm learning how to use these lures, which to me takes some practice. am i okay sticking almost solely to metal for these fish, or should i try other methods in addition to the spoons i'm using, such as swim baits, or even bait. and when i'm casting to the middle of the pond, it just seems so vast for bait. isn't metal better for the deeper parts, due to the lack of visibility?
  7. Recently I've been fishing a particular spot that has been very productive at the height of the current. Like most productive places its often packed with other people shoulder to shoulder. In this spot a 3 oz. SS needle just doesn't get down into the strike zone fast enough so I can use it effectively before I have to get it back in to avoid other people. I have other plugs that get the job done if I need them ( bucktails, savage eels, etc.) but for me but I have a lot less confidence in them, also it'll allow me to carry less stuff. Anyway I'm starting this thread because I want to load an SS needle to about 3.5-4 ounces. I've only loaded red fins with water before so I'm curious about the proper method to load an "N"fish. I've seen the videos and read what I can but I want to get your guys input. Can I load a 3 oz. needle to that weight? What's the best type of shot to use? How much will it weigh when I'm done? Any "cheaper" 4 oz. needles on the market that i can just buy. (I don't let myself spend more then $25 on plugs) Any articles/videos that would help me would be appreciated. Thank you
  8. While walking the beach from Ramp 55 to the Hatteras Inlet my wife and I came upon a branch washed up on the shore with a tangle of fishing line , weeds and these two old lures. Theyre both 3-1/4 inch long. The one on the right looks like an imitation or possibly a precursor of a Stingsilver but with distinctive red eyes. The other one on the left is really bizarre...looks like a cork screw. Had that little red plastic piece as a flipper tail ahead of the treble hook. The nickel like finish is worn off revealing a copper color underneath. The numerals "289" are engraved at the eyelet. Any of you guys ever see anything like this in all your years surf Fishing? I havent...and I've been at it 30+ years.
  9. Thursday my wife and I were walking the beach from Ramp 55 to the Hatteras Inlet and found a branch with a tangle of fishing line, weeds and these two old lures. They're both 3-1/4 inch long. The one on the right looks like a Stingsilver but with red eyes. The other one on the left....never seen anything like it....looks like a cork screw. The nickel like finish is worn off revealing a copper color undeneath. The numbers "289" appear engraved near the eyelet. Any of you guys ever seen a lure like this?
  10. I posted this pic in the OBX Surf Talk and Main Forum. Found these two 3-1/4 inch long metal lures tangled up in a bunch of fishing line and weeds while walking the beach at Hatteras Inlet Thursday. The one on the right is probably a Stingsilver copy ....the one on the left is really bizarre. Has a nickle like finish that is worn down revealing a copper color. The numerals "289" appear engraved near the eyelet. Any of you seasoned surf fishermen ever seen anything like this?
  11. Complete re-edit: Getting back into surfcasting, need to buy lures again. Anything you consider a waste of money, or a must have in coastal Connecticut? Will be walking the beaches with an 8'6" Tsunami Trophy II rated at 1/2 to 1-1/2 oz. Hopefully this will be addressed in Skinner & Hromin's books when I take a look. Thanks, -M

  13. Three nights ago, I left my Plug bag and surf belt on a rock at a local fishing area in Rhode Island. By the time I went back to get them they were gone. If anyone here has happened to come across these items, please reach out. I can name location, brand, belt accessories, and plug bag contents. Any help to recover these items is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  15. Ok I need guidance, just moved to Long Island and love fishing. I never realized how much goes into the sport. I have a lot to learn. The last two seasons i’ve Been surf fishing but with not much luck( yes, i’m a bait soaker). I have tried some lures ( buck tails, diamond jig, spoons) out a few times but since I didn’t know what I was doing I kinda gave up. I have yet to catch a fish on a lure. I would like to be able to learn the lures and someday catch a damn fish. I have been to the trusty YouTube watched a few videos in hopes that things would change this year. Watched vids on how to tie different rigs, on how to read the beach which I still don’t know if I’m doing right. My gear so far: 10’ st croix mojo surf paired with penn battle 6000 12’ penn rod with penn fierce 2 live liner 8000 the 6000 has 40lb braid I believe the 8000 has 50lbs mono i think both rods are medium to heavy what the hell do I need to do other than “ get out and fish more”? More YouTube I guess any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

  17. Hi. I'm new here. I wanted to ask for some pointers and possibly share some information about fishing *the south shore. My son and I are reasonably experienced fishermen. But we're entirely new to Jamaica Bay and all of the South Shore for fishing - and fairly new to blues and stripers. For the last couple months we've been renting a small boat and fishing for blues and stripers in the back *. We've probably gone out 7 or 8 times, starting in early September. We've caught a lot of nice, if not wildly large blues and stripers, a few into the 7 or 8 pound range, all catch and release. We're working entirely off the surface, using lures, hunting around for surface commotion and baitfish getting corralled near shores and marshes etc. Last weekend we went out and we didn't see a single instance of surface commotion and we didn't even get a bite, let alone catch any fish. Clearly something pretty dramatic had changed from the previous six weeks. But we were in the dark about what. I was especially curious because my understanding at least was that blues and stripers in that area should be heating up over October rather than trailing off. Has anyone else seen that shift in the same area or in that general area. And for those who know the area better are there obvious things about recent weather or the runs or anything else that would explain it? Obviously, sometimes a day is just a bum day and it's a fluke. But it seemed like something more than that. So I'm curious if anyone has any thoughts, has seen the same thing or has any ideas based on knowledge of that water. Thanks in advance! Josh
  18. I am making lures with 3d printer and i draw myself. Coming Soon.....
  19. Hi y’all I’ve been searching with no luck to find a spot on hickory shad imitator lure. Background I hit one of my favorite fishing spots,about this time of year, just about every night the hickory’s are rolling pretty thick. I want to get a lure that will get me the presentation to catch fish feeding on them. The fish range from 6- 16 in the ones I catch on flies etc are always on the large side. This is a nighttime situation any thoughts or direction to share be much appreciated thanks
  20. In the surf, what do Stripers feed on during the beginning, middle and end of their season? Secondly, what approaches work best for you and your approaches change throughout the season? Thank you in advance ——— Tight lines! SB
  21. what and how big ,for daytime and night.these lures can get your head spinning,especially if you bought some because they look "cool"----realistically,what do you carry for early season.
  22. Hypothetically, say that you had 50$ (give or take) to spend on lure(s) that you would have to use for the rest of your life. Give me a list, or some pictures. I can't wait to see what everyone thinks.
  23. I have this wood 8-1/4 inch bottle plug-signed by Donny in person-I would appreciate info on value-thank you-rreelman
  24. 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!
  25. 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!!!
