  1. Last fall was the first time that I can actually say I truly surf fished for stripers. I have done it in the past but very sporadically. I had good success last fall when the sand eels were around throwing tins and teasers. I tied my braid to a barrel swivel then I added about 3 feet of mono to a TA clip that I either connected to a plug or tins. From the same spot on the barrel swivel that went to the plug/tin I attached 4 to 6 inches on mono to another TA clip and this is were I attached my teaser. My question is did I attached the teaser to the correct spot on the barrel swivel or should I have attached to the spot where the braid was tied on?
  2. Hello all, I am now working on a research article about striped bass and their feeding patterns in the fall run and their migratory patterns in the winter. The article should be up by Thursday 10/14/21, thank you for your patience.
  3. What’s the warmest water bass you ever caught? Last night I was in a deep back bay spot and was slamming nice fish on poppers. The fish were super aggressive and the water temp was 82.5 degrees! I couldn’t believe it. There was some big big fish swimming around.
  4. This month Ill be targeting stripers at a location where there is a bottleneck of action. During the nighttime outgoing tide, bait fish are carried to this bottleneck and the stripers feast. You can see the flash of stripers slicing through this bait ball. But considering the heavy action I wasnt happy with how few we caught last time I fished the location. I was using live eels, hooking the eels through the upper jaw and livelining them. Im wondering if there is a better way. Should I try a sinker rig instead? I was thinking about tying a weight at the end of the line and tying the hook a couple feet above so the eel cant dive for cover and is flailing in the middle of the water column. Any suggestions?
  5. Hey guys, new to the message board and located on the Sakonnet River. I'll be honest, more a novice to saltwater fishing than freshwater but I'm working to get better as a saltwater fisherman. Not looking for secret spots or locations, really just want some friendly talk about fishing the Sakonnet River and/or Mount Hope Bay. I know the bay is getting between 72-74 degrees and Common Fence Pt and the Channel there hasn't been producing more than some Porgy. Thinking of going the opposite way and down the Sakonnet and seeing if I can locate some blues and stripers. From a technique standpoint, I have popper plugs, Hogy epoxy jigs, swim baits, and tube & worm. With the water getting warmer, is it better to go early morning? Late night? What's the best time with the tides? Rising tide? Lowering tide? I have the ability to reach places via boat and jetski and I know to try and find the birds for a blitz but recently it's been staring at my depth/fish finder trying to find bait balls. Any and all comments and help would be great. Thanks guys!
  6. Guys, I have been surf fishing for nearly thirty years. Just the last few years I have been building a collection of high end gear. There is a big difference forsure. I own Van staal reels and like them. I have been in the market for a Zee Baas reel but I am not sure how the sizes compare to a Vanstaal. I own a VS200,VS150 and VS100. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  7. I'm on vacation on the Vineyard this week. I was fishing up-island Monday morning from about 1:00 a.m. to sunrise. There was a nice light wind blowing directly into the beach. About 2 hours into the incoming tide the bite turned on. I was catching stripers that were progressively getting bigger when my needlefish got slammed. A 26" striper was the biggest one at this point. As I reeled in the fish I thought it would easily be a slot fish but hopefully not over. When I beached it I discovered I hooked a tank of a blue fish at 31", and guesstimated at about 12lbs. That was the big fish of the night. A blurple needlefish was the hot lure on the cloudy, dark night. As sunrise approached birds started to show up and there was a lot of fish activity in the water. However they weren't stripers. I put in a 5/8 oz silver Hogy epoxy then proceeded to catch shad like crazy. They were fun to catch. I was getting multiple hits on every cast. The shad were also putting on great aerial shows as they tried to throw my hook. They were mostly about 12"-14" big. Unfortunately I was traveling lightly that night. I didn't have any bait hooks so I could use a small shad as bait to see if any big fish were on them. I also left the box with my sebile magic swimmers in the car.
  8. I have a brand new 12wt fly rod for sale. It is a G. Loomis CrossCurrent Pro 1. 8’ 10” 1 piece rod. Due to the size it would need to be picked up in Philly, unless we can agree on a place to meet up. Asking $425. Would consider trades for Van Staal or Zeebaas reels.

  10. For those of you who keep detailed logs, do you find that the rising or setting of the moon (either full or new) has any effect on the feeding patterns of large stripers? Never paid much attention to it but I feel like it might be an important detail. Anyone?

  15. Hello!! My trip for CA has been cancelled due to COVID so they are sending me to Irving, TX for training. Ill be there 3/1/2021 - 3/13/2021 ish. I was planning on treking to galveston or going to PINS, but someone suggested going to Lake Texoma and i started looking into it. Im super excited as striped bass are one of my bucket list fish. Anybody have tips for an out of stater who doesn't even know where the "dam" is? Told to fish off of that, but i am probably blind because i cant find it on google maps. Anyways.... any help? Any cheap cheap cheeeeaap guides? Idk if i can bring a rod or not.
  16. Hi Everyone, I need some help. I recently ordered the St. Croix VIS80MHF Avid Inshore Spinning Rod - 8 ft and I need to find a spinning reel to pair with it. I plan to get more serious about striper/blue fishing in cape cod (Eastham/Welfleet area) and this rod will mainly be used in small rivers/estuaries as well as flats. I have been doing some research and I have heard some good options are the Shimano Saragosa 5/6K, Shimano Stradic FL5000, Shimano Spheros 6K, Shimano Sustain, and the Pen Slammer 4500. I was really leaning towards the Stradic FL5000, but my concern is the weight of reel is too light for the rod (roughly 10 oz). This Avid inshore model that I purchased is about 7.5 oz. Do you think I need to pair this rod with a heavier reel in the 12-16 oz range? If so, do you guys have any other recommendations? Also, I would love to hear from anyone who owns this rod on what your setup looks like.

  23. Hey guys, First post, so I added a stupid joke... I am wondering if anyone wants to share winter striper tips. Obviously the action is coming to a end, but I know it's possible to catch em in the winter. How? Flies, Spots, Tactics? Anything helps! What do you call a fish without the eye? A fsh!
