  4. Hey folks, Excited to be heading to Belize in July. Couched under my "40th Birthday Present", I started pitching it to my wife four or five years ago, and it's officially got the green light. Even my toddler daughters approve, too. I'll be posted up on Caye Caulker July 18-22, and I'm excited to be down there when the bigger poons are on the move. Other misc. details: the new moon falls on the 20th. I think I'll carry an 8-11wts down with me, (including my 10wt CTS Affinity X-Herb Special (my first build)). I'm also bringing down an older T&T Vector and a Bauer M4 reel to donate to the local high school fly fishing program on the island. If anyone has landed in that neck of the woods, I'd love to hear about your experience. Any insights you can share about tides/moons, water temps, feeding habits, etc. I'm sure I'll get it all from the guide, but I need something to preoccupy my time with.
  5. Hi All, I am NausetDog's older brother. I'm getting into fly fishing again after my first foray some 40 years ago. I'm looking forward to catching my first Striper on a fly!!! Regards, NausetFog
  6. I am looking for a reasonably inexpensive 9' (or longer) 8 wt. w/a fighting butt - has to break down to under 4', so 3 or 4 pieces. Fishing Florida flats in Feb & my larger SW sticks are too big. PP preferred & shipping to 11939.
  7. Is it me, or is looking like it may not be the best weekend for fishing in SoCo? Big storm just passed through, Wind will be sticking around most of the weekend, I'm guessing the water is churned up as of now... Anyone have any positive thoughts!?!?
  8. Hello. I'm visiting Mill Valley (CA) for a few days in early August to enjoy some shows at the Sweetwater Music Hall and am thinking about fly fishing the nearby saltwater. Comfortable & equipped to fishing the inshore and onshore salt of Massachusetts (e.g., Cape Cod) and Florida (SEast & Keys), I aim to avert Spot Burn" yet request / need your observations and suggestion(s) concerning whatever opportunity(ies) might or might not be presented within walking distance of my hotel - i.e., Pickleweed Inlet, Bothin Marsh Preserve, Coyote Creek, and Silva Island. I'd also very much appreciate suggested patterns & size(s) to bring, or tie. Please PM if, as needed to avert Spot Burn. Thanks in advance. RL2TF
  9. Would it be ok if I used 8 weight fly line on my 9 weight rod for striper? Would that work?
  10. Folks, I am a newbie and this is my first post, so if it is in the wrong place please bear with me. I haven't fished for years, but caught the fishing bug again. I used to drag a lure behind a trailer-sized sailboat in Southern California, and whatever caught itself I was happy with. That is the extent of my expertise. I am 12 years new to MA but don't have the luxury of a sailboat, but do have a sit-in kayak equipped with two rod holders and a medium duty spinning rod. Would you kindly recommend places where I can take my kayak and do my beginner-like saltwater fishing here in MA, preferably where I don't have to pay $$$$$ for parking. I am in Canton, so Boston Harbor and places south are generally within range. My intent is to park the truck, dump out the kayak and just go. Can you help? Thank you all, Herman
  11. Hey guys, I have a 7 foot shakespeare alpha rod with 20lb test line and I want to catch a fat cow striper in the cape cod canal in a few weeks. I've heard that you need a 10 foot rod to fish the cape cod canal, is this true? I dont have the extra money to get a new set up but i was thinking of throwing a live eel on the hook and throwing it out as far as i can and let the eel swim around and hopefully the stripers will eat it. Has anyone ever fished with a rod under 10ft in the canal? I have a primal urge to catch a fat cow fish and cook it up and eat it with some panko fried in the oven and i really need to make this happen. Can someone help me out with my shakespeare 7 footer whats my best bet to catch a fatty? *whats the best set up for me?*
  12. About 3 years ago after a life fishing the surf and saltwater I decided to learn as much as I could about the fresh water fishery and explored NJ's various lakes and ponds. Had so much success that summer catchen some beautiful largemouth. Really was amazed by the tranquilty of the fishing. Very different from the intensity of surf fishing with regards to crowds, conditions, and equipment. Was wondering, any of you guys split your time up throughout the "peak" salt water months (April-December)? Really enjoyed that particular summer and thinken of sprinkling in a few sweetwater sessions throughout the coming season. Having grown up along the NJ coast, salt will always be my 1st love, but I definitely became hooked to the new world of freshwater. Just curious if any of you take a break from the usual routine of hunting for stripes, blues, and albis to go after large, sunnys, crappie, and other NJ freshwater fish. Good luck to all.
  13. Folks, I have been fly fishing freshwater for many (a lot) years, but realise that saltwater crossover is like going back to the first rung on the ladder. I can tie, cast and read a river but I would like to get some input from the forum as to what the real key challenges are. I know there will be a giant list of points, but if contributers could put down their top 3 challenges that they have experienced in moving to saltwater that would help myself (and hopefully others) understand where to concentrate our learning. I am thinking of presentation, retrieve, blind / targetted rather than kit but also input on KEY equipment is very welcome. Thanks Jim
  14. All, I've got a Pflueger Supreme 35 that I purchased Summer 2017 (I think, but 5% chance it was summer 2016), and I can't find any info about it online. I'm trying to decide if it's OK for saltwater use. Online I can only find Supreme 35x. I don't see any indication of the "x" on my reel, but I'm not sure if it's the same thing. The 35x is saltwater approved. Edit: it says "SupSp35x" on the bottom of the box, but nowhere else. I'm assuming it's salt safe? Any ideas?
  15. I was wondering what rod you guy would use with a 3000 saltist back bay i was thinking a 8-14 pound test rod (usually labeled as medium light) but i know that the saltwater daiwa reels tend to be on the larger side so i'm just looking for some of your input
  16. Brand new, never used Cheeky Limitless 475 and spare spool. This is in the limited edition all black that is currently sold out on their site. Awesome 10-12wt reel.

  20. So my new to me boat has been great. I have been pushing with the muffs religiously the last couple weeks I owned it, and even run in freshwater to be sure. The other day I wanted to use Hondas flush option that attaches to the garden hose on the 150. I know it isn't as good, but figured let's try it out. So I screw on the hose, turn it on, and by the time I get back to the boat, the hose is out of control spraying everywhere. I reconnect, try again, and same result.....4 times. So today I researched this issue. Pictures speak for themselves, but a full salt lick clog was in there. Works great now!
  21. Can anyone help me make up my mind on a saltwater spinning reel? Looking at ~ $150 reels and so far the spinfisher and BG have come to mind of course, as well as the tsunami shield. Penn conflict looks nice too, but can it handle big game? Thanks
  22. How's it going out there everyone? It's been a while since I've been into the surf, or beach in general due to medical issues and hospital trips over the course of 2 years. I was just looking for general info on where I can wet a line for striped bass, blues, porgy, seabass, dig for clams, squid jig or crab net. I fished Plum Island yesterday and it was slow for me last night, not much bait anywhere except for a clams every 15ft {are these surf clams edible? white big shells} looking to try something new . I currently am using a mojo surf 10'6 3/4-4oz medium and a pen spinfisher v 6500, I also have a Tsunami trophy surf rod 3-6oz medium heavy for chunking or throwing big bucktails/jigs in the Merrimack river. I am willing to drive 1-2 hours for spots. Just looking for general areas to explore and gain more experience with the plugs in my bag which I'm trying to limit to 8 or less to become proficient with specific techniques. I have fished , Deer Island , Plum Island, some beach fronts in Ispwich and Salem. I have only really fished from shore and do not have access to my own boat.
  23. So I have a question I’m in the market for a new reel for stripers, blues and bottom it’s between Avet MXL 5.8 and the Seigler Small I’m coming here for your honest opinion on which one would you purchase and why?
  24. Hey guys, I've recently become enthralled with hitting the surf for some bigger fish than the 6-inch dinky Large Mouth Bass at my local lake. The idea of using the biggest body of water available to me to catch fish that I can actually take home and eat is extremely appealing to me. The fish I intend on hitting primarily are Perch, Corbina, Halibut, Rockfish, Lingcod, and Striped Bass (if they're around). I am unsure as to whether Rockfish and Lingcod inhabit my local Orange County jetties but they look like loads of fun to catch! I know that Leopard Sharks, Rays, Guitarfish, as well as other larger species inhabit my local beaches so I'd like those fish to be taken into account on the off chance I hook one. I would prefer my gear not to snap and leave me a little in the hole! I've been doing a lot of research on gear and technique and have been looking at a few reels and rods and would appreciate advice on my choices. The reels I am looking at (Open to suggestions, of course): Fin Nor Lethal LT60 Penn SSV Penn Battle II For the rods (open to suggestions again, and also unsure of what size rod I should purchase): Offshore Angler Powerstick Star Stellar Lite Daiwa Beefstick Ugly Stick Surf Rod I've been watching a ton of videos on rigs and general fishing tips. So I have a rough idea as to what I need. I know that I need a variety of 1-4oz sinkers (both pyamidic, round, and coin), basic sabiki rigs for bait fish, ~30(?) Pound braid and fluoro leader, and hooks (unsure of what size). For baits, I've heard that Berkeley Gulp Sandworms are "Perch Crack", shrimp and sandcrabs are good; however, I am uneducated in swimbaits so I would also be open to advice there. General beginners advice for the species I have listed would also be very helpful. Any advice and help is much appreciated! Thank you!
  25. Ok, I have been gifted a handfull of johnson 1/8oz spoons in various colors. I'll be honest, I have never used a spoon before so I don't know techniques for temp., species, or time of year. I got a recommendation to try a silver one for skipjack (catfish bait) but would the hook on the 1/8 oz be too large? (I want this to be an open topic and maybe lead to a start of newbie threads to explain certain bait/lure presentations.) I did find some info but for that specific question I can't find answer. Thank you all and good luck fishing.
