About Me:

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

What I do for a living:


  1. Recently purchased a Lamiglas Carbon Surf 10 ft rated 1-5 oz from Tomo's Tackle online. Want a back up for the upcoming fall run since my 10 ft ODM DNA 3/4-4oz is at the tackle shop. Reel seat was too small for my VSX 200. During a morning outing at the inlet, vsx kept slipping out of the fuigi reel seat every other cast . Switched to my St Croix triumph 9ft rated 1/2-2.5 oz. but it felt like noodle casting 2oz bucktails. Shop is putting a slightly bigger reel seat on the DNA. What do you think of the Carbon Surf?
  2. As the the title states, who has one and how do you fish it? I'm curious, as a learning experience, as to how people are setting it up for fluke, tog and striped bass. Especially if you're from the cape or long island, montauk, jersey... What test braid are you using for each specific species. What are you finding it can handle real world in terms of sinker weight, diamond jigs... I appreciate Kil's perspective, but he also may be fishing a different technique and I'd like to know how it's working out for others.
  3. I saw this video and thought it was really cool. I didn't know that there were striped bass running the coast of california. This was pretty crazy to see that there all over the west coast and east coast.
  4. looking for information on how to fish *reefs for striped bass from shore or boat.
  5. Hi there! Fishing newbie here with another question, Do swivels/fishing clips scare away your fish? especially striped bass? I know when you are using hard baits it doesn't really matter but sometimes I use a jig head and soft plastic and wonder if that scares away the fish. All help is appreciated!
  6. Anyone fish the Hackensack ? Usually fish down south but trying to find something local since difficult to travel with work. Live in area but have never fished area.
  7. Fished once. Seagate 20 with 15lb jbraid. Tsunami classic 7’ XH rated 20-40lb. Used for a few drifts in montauk. Picked It up for friends to use. No longer needed. Washed down. Box included. $215 or best offer picked up in Queens/Nassau
  8. Looking to buy jointed mambo minnows. Any color will do and slight use is fine. Thanks for looking!
  9. Just curious what others are thinking. Been reading the study and surrounding articles about the striper population being under severe stress. Several commentaries from folks at the trade pubs talking both sides of the slot limit argument and approach. What do you think we need to do to ensure the next couple generations have striped bass out there to torment them? Slot? Closure? Really interesting to read how much worse the morbidity on released fish is compared to my personal assumptions. As one who sucks at catching bass in Western CT, I guess the only consolation is not being a proportionally large part of the problem.
  10. Hello! I've got a few questions about fishing for striped bass during the winter months, as I REALLY don't wanna be playing video games indoors and would rather be catching fish! So here are my questions; Where do you fish for them? What lures to throw? What tactics should I use to find some fish (Doesn't matter if its big or small I'm just trying to get some fish!) And also I live in the Fairfield Area. Any information is very appreciated!!! Tight lines!

  14. Hey there! I've got a question about where to fish for striped bass(either big or small, I'm just trying to catch some fish!) in the winter months (December-March) and what to use to catch them (lures,tactics,etc.) I live in Ct. and also if there are some fellow Connecticut fisherman could you give me some recommendations as well? All help is very appreciated!!!
  15. Hi guys! I have some questions about what I've heard is one of the most versatile lures out there; The Buck tail. Now, I rarely use these and that's probably a bad thing as from videos on you tube, forums and articles they say they produce a lot and even catch some pretty nice sized bass! I've only used buck tails for fluke but want to try it for striped bass. In my Area, there are mostly bass in the 12-24 inch range (mostly school bass) but sometimes a 28 inch or bigger will appear. So my questions are; What size buck tails should I purchase? How should I fish these buck tails? and what are some other methods and tactics to use Buck tails? All help is very appreciated!!! Tight lines!
  16. 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!
  17. How successful have y'all been in livening scup? i had some 40's on liveling from shore. saw a 70 doing it and didn't even believe they got that big!!
  18. 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!!!
  19. Hi! I'm a bit of a newbie and new to this site, I have one question about striped bass handling, whats THE way or other ways to hold a striped bass from the ranges of 10 inches to 25 inches, I mostly catch schoolie striped bass in my area. I try to prevent them from flopping on the ground, as they can injure themselves from articles I've read. I lip them sometimes or even place the fish on my fore arm to support them to take a quick picture, anything I'm doing wrong here? and what are good ways to handle and hold them properly? all help is very appreciated! Tight lines
  20. Hi All, new to the community here, I will be in Goose Rocks Beach Maine for a few days, I primarily surf cast in southern RI and the CCC. I am planning on trying surf casting over there but have a bay boat to get a little further out there if the shore fishing is slow. I was planning on loading up on mackerel Al Gags and poagie chunking. I have lots of top water plugs and divers, needles etc, any recommendations for that costal area?
  21. 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.
  22. Don’t want to open a can of worms . But what is everyone’s thoughts on status of NEW JERSEY stripedbass stocks ?
  23. went back to the same spot I was yesterday and the fish were waiting in the "pocket" (a spot I found that I call the pocket). Release 12 dink striped bass and landed 2 in the 32 inch range. its been really really good in ocean county.
  24. I surf cast, i boat, and i kayak, but hands down love the Hobie way of life
