  1. Seeing if anyone has a plug bag that can fit 9-10 inch GRS size plugs (I know I'm going to get flatlander suggestions but that's a bit out of my prize range plus there's one hell of a waiting list)
  2. So, every once in a while I take a look through Ebay to see if there are any good deals on custom plugs. I recently found a bunch of hand made/painted plugs from “WjS Custom Plugs” made by a guy in Arkansas. They all look like high quality work but I’m hesitant to drop beachmaster/rm Smith money on something from a plug builder that I can find virtually no information or reviews on, especially when it looks like they’re only sold on eBay. I’ve got one in mind that I really want to try but again... that’s 35$ that could be spent on a tried and proven plug. Has anybody tried these out before or know any info on the builder? I sent him a message on eBay for details and will update when I receive a response.
  3. Aren't they at this point? You pretty much cover everything with modern soft plastics, jigs, tins, etc. Seems like no point in lugging around a louis vuitton bag full of expensive wood anymore. Maybe topwater for kicks, otherwise I'm not seeing the point anymore.
  4. Want to trade my brand new GRS surface giant for another GRS black over white
  5. I need a new Canal rod because of my mojo breaking. I’m thinking about buying the TFO GIS SURF 10’6 rated 2-8 oz. anyone out there use this rod and is it cable of 6oz jigs? And how true is that 2-8 rating. Does it have enough backbone to cast far? Does it handle the current when fish is on. Last questions has anyone dealt with TFO’s warranty program. Thanks
  6. Im torn on which flatlander plug bag to order. Anyone have any pics they can share of their high low bags loaded with plugs? Trying to get a visual of the capacity. thank you!
  7. Driftwood Lures 2oz jr. Cobia plug lot. $50 shipped
  8. Hey All, I've been reading tons of guides trying to find out what are some of the more common and useful lures for a beginner. I'll be going for striper this season at both Robert Moses and the North Shore around the Huntington area. What are your go to daytime and nighttime plugs/lures for this area? I'm not trying to break the bank, and would like to start out with at least 5-6 different options for various conditions. This is what I narrowed my list down to so far: Sebile Magic Swimmer Lures (Bunker Color) - $10-20 Super Strike Darter (Yellow - night time) $20 Daiwa SP Minnow (Black/Purple) - $10 Buck Tails (1-1 1/2 ounce) $5 7-8'' Tsunamia Soft Sand Eel $5 How does this list look? Any other common plug I am missing?
  9. WTB RM Smith sharked out strider. Last one i need for my collection. Also looking for any other customs such as halloween or rudolph.Thanks!
  10. WTB RM Smith Sharks * handcarve * hammerhead * tiger * great white Looking for only new condition. thanks!!!
  11. The analytical side of me has to ask this question? Besides the obvious that it has to catch BIG fish... what makes a great plug? No one tells you what kind of wood they use? The sink rate? When it’s the preferred plug by current, depth, sweep, tide change? Day or night? I know there is much more.... Is there data out there? why does no one show you this when talking about their custom plug? just wondering...
  12. Want to buy Cyclone lures
  13. Hello everyone. I'm a new member on this site, and new to striper fishing. This year will be my first attempt. I would appreciate any info about rod and reel setup, technique, plugs and lures, times of year, and places to fish( I realize that's probably not going to happen).
  14. Give me your top five (or more) saltwater lures, plugs, soft plastics, or anything else that you have used to fish for stripers and blues over your fishing career.
  15. I have a shop in my small coastal community that has hundreds of vintage rods to search thru. I saw a video of Conolon Rods being built at a factory. I am using Mitchell reels and would like to match the reels with rods. I am wondering if anyone knows how long they made Conolon rods. I want to find ones that will work in the surf.
  16. Does anyone know of a company or builder that makes giant darters? Mike's customs is the only one I've found but was wondering what else is out there. By big I mean 7 inches+ weighing 3 or 4 oz
  17. Morning gentleman. So here's the deal. I'm going to be ordering a lathe soon so I can start making my own plugs once I get good at it. Main reason for this is that I wanna build plugs that are much bigger than the ones available out there. 10-12 inch swimmers and Darters, needles, etc is what I'm thinking. So figure anywhere from 6-10 oz of wood is what I'll be throwing. My main rod right now is a 1321m with 5 old school wire guides and while she casts and handles fish fine, I doubt it'll be the best choice for truly giant plugs. I also plan on building a 136mh for bait fishing but I've never heard of anyone plugging with that thing. So I need a recommendation for a rod 11-12 feet that can get the job done. Thanks!

  20. I have had ;luck on live bait but does anyone know any good lures for surfcasting for Striped bass????????
  21. Was fishing plugs yesterday. First loss was a Gibbs pencil popper. My fault for not pushing the line to the rod with my finger after the cast then reeling to prevent it going on loose onto the spinning reel. Then I lost a guppy mini pencil popper. This time the snap straightened out on the cast. It was at least a 70lb test snap coastlock type snap. So I'm thinking that next time I'm using the Tactical Anglers paper clips. Wasn't using them because I'd misplaced them. Ever snap off a lure and if so, how often? Anything ELSE I need to think about to prevent snapping off a lure into the ocean?
