  1. New to fly fishing... want to try trout fishing till striper season gets going.
  2. Temps will be in the upper 50s' Christmas Eve. Will Santa bring you a fish or a lump of seaweed?
  3. Looking for a good pair of waterproof gloves that will keep my hands warm and dry if dunked. I fish the Long Island sound along the Connecticut coast, so I’m looking at temperatures 20F (hopefully) and up. i know this question gets asked a lot, but I’m looking for something to use in the winter that I don’t have to worry about getting wet!
  4. Plan on fishing as long as possible into the cold weather. What are some good boots to get for surf fishing that can go over stocking foot waders? Boots you can go into the water with in cold weather? Also curious to know other types of attire worn for the cold that helps get you through the season??
  5. I just moved up to the RI area a few months ago from NYC, and was wondering what some of the late season / winter kayak saltwater fishing options are in this neck of the woods? Looking at some charts of the RI coastline, it looks like there are some rocks/ledges/structure within 2 miles of shore with depths getting to the 80 ft range and beyond. Of course I'll need ideal conditions to get out there, but wondering how late in the year I can catch tautog, possibly BSB, and cod in these areas. Also wondering about catching mackerel and herring off the yak in and around the bay. I'm sure I'll poke around some areas in the upper bay looking for some holdover stripers, but my question is geared more towards non-stripers.
  6. I've seen a lot of content on fishing the bridges, and I know that January is not the best month -- but that's when I'm free and that's when I'm going. Can anyone offer some January-specific DIY fishing advice for the Keys? Pretty much interested in tangling with anything of size that pulls, so not ashamed to pursue sharks, barracudas and jacks in addition to the more "desirable" species. Not looking for meat, just a good time with a buddy. So where should we go in January? What should we target in January? How should we target them in January? Very much appreciate any advice that folks can offer or direction to a thread that addresses this, if I may have missed it.
  7. To be honest Winter has me a bit stir crazy and I want to cast a line or two. Has anybody had experience throwing sabikki rigs from shore to jig up some herring? With the warm weather this week I’d like to get out there and give it a shot. Any advice on structure, tide timing, etc. would be much appreciated.
  8. 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:
  9. Lately I’ve seen a lot of YouTube videos and articles online about people in the New York area catching herring, shad, and mackerel around this time of year off the beaches. This has got me interesting in fishing for them around Cape Cod during the winter. During the spring, summer and early fall I catch plenty of hickory shad and mackerel out of an inlet I fish in Cape Cod Bay. So I’m wondering is it possible to still catch them in these areas during the winter or do they move to different areas. I can fish in the harbor or off the jetties in order to access deeper water (20-30 feet) Is this a fishing opportunity strictly available to the waters around New York or is it possible to target these species during the winter around the Cape? Any experience, tips, pictures or advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  10. SO I am working with the kids of the Ward Melville High School Fishing Club on ideas for next years show. They've come up with some good ideas and one in particular got me thinking. Why don't we reach out and ask the people that attend our shows, what they would like to see/experience at a show? Its a great and relevant question. So, what do you want to see at a show? The question is a general one, any aspect of a show is fine to comment on. I want to add a specific question on the coattails of the first. When it comes to seminars, who do you want to hear speak? Topics of interest? Any ideas other than the traditional person on stage speaking to the crowd? Totally open to new ideas and formats and any ideas are truly appreciated. Feel free to post here or to email us at wmhs**** Thanks Bob
