  1. Coming up to fish Montauk the third week of October. ‘Twill be my first time, so I need some help with gear choices. Have booked a well-known guide for a day, but I’m hoping to hang around a couple of days afterwards and try out what he teaches me. I’m a kayak fishing guide down here in the Southeast, so I’ve got some stuff, and I do know my way around the water. Just not in the Long Island surf. Surf fishing down here is cut mullet on the bottom and wait - boring. I only use bait on my charters in the heat of summer, when the water is loaded with mullet and pogies, and it’s so hot the fish won’t chase anything else. The rest of the time it’s artificials or flies, so I know how to fish lures. I’ve got Simms waders, but they’re stockingfoot (former trout/steelhead addict), and my wading boots are felt sole. I know I need korkers, but does it matter which ones? My preference before has been for lighter rather than heavier. Are they sized like other wading boots are? I’ve got bogas and a good surf belt. I’ve ordered a bag from Jamie that will double as a skiff bag for down here. I’ve got plenty of good stuff for layering underneath, but I need a good top. If it’s warm, and I just need a jacket, I’m fine. Got several of those. I pulled out my Immersion Research dry top - neoprene cuffs and adjustable collar with Velcro, but I hardly use it because it’s just not big enough to layer under. It’s designed just for paddlers, not for fishing, so it’s tighter than I like. Do I absolutely need something with latex gaskets in October? Okay if I do, but I’m hoping not. Recommendations? Anything else that’s a must have? I have a couple of headlamps and waterproof flashlights. I have good pliers that will hold up to salt. I built a 9’, 1-4oz rod out of an MHX blank, paired with a Spinfisher VI 6500 I already had, spooled with 30lb invisibraid. I’ve got leader material from 15-50lb. I have good friends who live in Southampton, so that’s where I’m staying. Anybody who's willing to let me tag along any of those days, if you ever come to Hilton Head/Savannah area, I’ll take you out in a yak or a skiff and put you on some good inshore fish. I’ll provide all the gear. You can check my IG if you want to see what I have to offer in return. I don’t believe in asking something for nothing when it comes to fishing.
  2. I am in the market for a SUP for fly fishing here in New England, specifically North Shore Massachusetts, New Hampshire Sea Coast, to the South Eastern coast of Maine. As you can imagine my biggest concerns being durability with the rocky coast as well as effectiveness out on the water in case of chop and wind. Using a kayak these days which is fine but would rather be standing to cast more effectively especially in deeper water and out on flats or shallows. Any feedback on models such as hard board to inflatables would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
  3. Hey folks, My dad is leaving for Cabo San Lucas next week and is in need of a recommendation for a fishing trip down there. I don't know if they do open boat party boat styles like they do here in NY. Would probably be a charter for him and his brother. Both novices. Something fun and near shore and reasonably priced. Small tuna or mahi trolling maybe? They're staying at the Me Cabo Hotel, so something near them. Any help would be appreciated.
