  1. There is no ice still in my area and while I can not fish - I make homemade fishing tackle. I made a video about how I make very simple strike indicators. Take a watch:
  2. 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!
  3. I am getting ready to come up to New York City for vacation in October and I plan to surf fish Montauk. I have a few bucktails and yo zuri mag darters. Could anybody give me a few other suggestions of some good lures to throw? The set up I will be using is a Star Rods VPR 9ft Surf with a Tsunami Shield 5000. I look forward to hearing from the community soon. Sincerely Sandesh Sukhdeo
  4. Hello, Is there a fly box (brand, model and size, please) that you’d recommend? Looking for something that I can carry with me when wading; something that can carry Surf Candies, Deceivers, Clouser Deep Minnows... the usual. What about out those of you who also like to carry longer flies such as flat saddles? Thank you, John
  5. New to the Portland area and curious to hear some favorites from locals: 1. Tide/time of day? 2. Top water lure? 3. Swim/crank bait? 4. Colors? 5. Any local shops or people making good bucktails? So far I've been fishing the outgoing at dawn at a tidal river with moderately strong current. I've had some success using techniques that have worked for me in NYC/cape cod waters using white bucktails, bone sp minnow, tsunami swim shad and white/blue talkin popper, but I'm wondering if any locals have some experienced advice to offer. Thanks for any info, Ryan
  6. I have a daiwa Catalina 100 with a power handle. I am looking for a Light bait casting rod with a trigger grip and full rear grip. I don't like th trevala as it is way too heavy for what I'm doing. Bucktails from 1-4 ounces and popcorn rigs with 6-7
  7. I purchased this net a few years ago after a 50lb bass was to big for the net that I had. The opening measures 30 inches across at its widest point. I then sold my boat and still have the net, unused. So I am selling it now. Asking $60 picked up in Manhasset, NY Thanks for looking
  8. (I apologize in advance for this post, I'm just really excited to go fishing this summer) I spend a lot of time freshwater fishing in the north shore area and it was just this summer that I started to transition towards saltwater fishing. Last summer however, my lack of proper saltwater gear and knowledge of the fishery limited me to jigging up squid and mackerel from the Salem Willows pier. Currently, during my Christmas break, I've been spending a lot of time researching the striped bass fishery and purchasing new tackle for this coming summer. Hopefully you guys who are familiar with the fishery in the north shore area will be able to answer a few of my questions regarding tackle that I would need and some other striped bass related questions. The equipment that I have right now is: pflueger trion spinning combo (6'6'' medium action graphite rod, trion 30x reel, 12lb mono) - the only saltwater readyish rod that I had last summer unfortunately Ugly Stik Bigwater 9' medium-heavy + Okuma Avenger abf 50 + 17lb mono w/40lb shock leader - just recently bought from a friend barely used I plan on purchasing: -a couple 3/4 oz bucktails -a couple 4 oz bucktails -pack of softbaits (something along the lines of berkley gulp) -2 floating daiwa sp minnows -2 cotton cordell pencil poppers -Berkley big game 17lb -Berkley big game 40lb -a bunch of the basic tackle (bank sinkers, swivels, hooks, sabiki rigs, etc.) This season is going to be mostly a figuring things out time for me, so I don't plan to put too much money into it, but I am willing to spend enough to where I'll be able to figure out what works and what doesn't. I honestly have no clue how to surf fish for striped bass and bluefish, however I did spend some time browsing forums and reading articles on the subject, which gave me a pretty basic understanding of what I'll need. I'm not too sure though so I have a few questions. Will the surf rod and reel (the ugly stik and okuma) that I picked up work well for surf fishing in the area? Also, do you think that the lures that I picked out will be sufficient for catching bluefish and striped bass? I understand that giving away fishing spots in a big no no in the fishing world, but as someone who genuinely is clueless as to where to fish from, do you think you guys could direct me to a general location in the north shore that would a good place to for me to get the hang of things and learn the ropes? I've heard good things from the plum island and Gloucester harbor areas. Also, I don't really need to go to an established "fishing' location like a pier or a jetty right? Like with surf fishing I'll be able to just set up along a beach that seems fish-able and make a day out it? Last part I promise. This is purely out of my obsession over getting everything planned out as soon as possible. For bait, I hear a lot about using clams, mackerel chunks, bunker chunks, and eals, but I seldom hear anything about squid. After last summer, I've gotten pretty good a catching squid. I was wondering if I'd be able to rig up a squid the same way you would a fish chunk and cast it out for bluefish and striped bass. For example, on Monday I spend day catching a whole bucket of squid off the salem willows pier and throw them in the freezer right when I get home. Would I then be able to use it for bait later in the week. This would save me a lot of bait money. Hopefully I won't get banned or something for this ridiculous post, but thank you so much to those of you who reply!!!
  9. I'd like to hear your opinions... If you could only take 5 lures fishing for bass, which would they be? I'm new to surf fishing, having just moved to the coast from PA. Trout bum converting to Beach bum craving Stripers. I have gear to start with, but want to make sure I use my money in the right place on the right tackle & lures. Appreciate your shared knowledge!
  10. What are your recommendations for a size 4000-6000 spinning reel to be mounted on a 7'6" seeker Rod. I will be fishing with plugs and bucktails up to 2 ounces. I Will be using 20 lb braid and 30 lb mono leader.
  11. Anyone use TROKAR hooks for stripers. If so, how well did they work. Are they worth the money or should i stick with Gammus?
  12. Hi, I'm looking to get into tuna fishing and was curious what kind of tackle I should be looking for, chunking, plugs, etc...
  13. As a response to the forum about cabelas and bass pro shops thread, give your local fly or tackle shop a shout out. I use a few on the east end of long island and they help me keep the lines tight. On the south fork, Ken at tight lines tackle is great for info and keeps the shop stocked with great products. On the north fork Steve and crew at wego tackle is loaded with all your bottom fishing needs. Support your local shop. What shop(s) takes care of you?

  15. Guys, i've posted before that I'm not new to striper fishing but new to using articials like plugs and bucktails to catch stripers. In looking for an efficient way to fill the tackle box and get a decent selection of plugs,* Thanks (*edited - if you want to discuss the usefulness of a variety of plugs, please post the plugs here and ask the question - we don't allow promoting sales on other sites, copy the list of plugs - ask what folks think of the plugs if you really want to know. Not the prices, just the plugs. Thanks.)
  16. I recently spoke to a reputable rod builder about getting my first custom rod made. The three blanks he showed me were the GSB 1321m, mh and a Century (2 piece) all 11'. I liked the 1321 M but was told it can break using heavy plugs 3-4 oz., the century was described as indestructible but was a little more money (also two piece rod). I thought the GSB Mh was a little heavier and stiff. I fish mostly 3 oz or less plugs and bucktails using braid with a 704z. My next upgrade is a VS250 (when I save enough).I have heard the 1321 M is the go to rod for most. I am leaning towards that rod, but before I plunk down a good piece of change I wanted to ask those who know best. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  17. Has anybody had to try to collect the value of lost tackle from their homeowners' policy after a fire? Were you told that you needed a rider of some kind to have the coverage that you wanted?
