Surfday seminar schedule

36 posts in this topic

For anyone that's never been JSS put on a great show.  It's the one fishing event I make sure to get to every winter.  Great seminars and plenty of tackle.  It's well worth the price of admission.

The seminar schedule has been changed from the original post.  The seminars and speakers are still the same just a couple of the times have been changed.  Here is the latest line up.  Hopefully it's the last.Seminar-schedule-2018..png.e94833dea688535d4a7053aa90033aee.png

The Surf Day show is all about plug porn..  It's pretty crazy to watch ..

Yeah, it's plug porn and a lot more.  Bucktail makers, rod builders, seminars, teasers........  It's surf fishing on steroids!

Yeah, but almost no one cares about all that other stuff.  No one is lining up at 8pm the night before to purchase teasers or bucktails.

 

It's comical to watch grown men run into the room to purchase a GRS or Dmag just so they can flip it the next day..

 

Just one mans opinion.  I went the first year to help out at the Menhaden Defenders table and to see old friend Tony Stetzko..

 

Have not been back since.

It may change every year but in the last few years it has become way to crowded...u wont get the deals there that u would at the fishing flea markets and in the past the topics on the seminars centered more on N. J. as well as some of the local speakers...

A couple pieces of update information on Surfday.

First, the bad news.  Because of the behavior and lack of consideration that some guys had last year the building will NOT BE OPEN all night for early birds.  The outer doors will be locked until about 6:00 A.M. at which time attendees will be allowed in until the show opens at 8:30.  In spite of the sponsoring clubs pleas some insisted on smoking (and not just cigarettes) and drinking beer while waiting.  Being locked out is the result.  Also be advised the parking lot will be patrolled by the local police during the night.  

Now a little good news.  Amongst the literature package for all attendees there will be copies of Willian "Doc" Muller's book "Surfcaster" for about the first thousand people thru the doors.  When they run out there will be no more.

I'll continue to add updates if and when they become available.

The first thousand! Wow. So how many people attend this thing. And do all of the good plug makers sell out right away? Is it really worth it getting there super early

There are a lot of good plug makers so it's not likely they'll all sell out early.  However, waiting until later in the day is not a good idea either.  Besides the tackle makers there's the seminars.  Those are definitely worth the effort to get there.

I’m very interested the Delaware river fishing seminar as I live right near the Delaware. I’m mainly coming for the seminars but of course am going to be picking up some plugs and of course some bucktails in white and blurple. Some tin bucktails would be nice if you have any!

Same.  Relocated to Camden County from Ocean county a 2 years ago and have never fished the Delaware.  Plan on making a serious effort this year.  Was very happy to see this seminar listed!

I’ve done some fishing in the Delaware. If you do some research you can find out a lot about it but I’m interested to see if there’s more to know. I’m wondering what they consider the lower Delaware and what techniques are best. I usually fish bunker but have heard recently a lot of people have more luck on blood worms. Never tried lures there. Planning on fishing there every day since I’m so close, besides work and sleep that’s all I will do during the river run.

@Big Will I've been doing lots of reading, scouting spots and talking to some people.  It seem bloodworms are the way to go at first, with bunker becoming more effective as the spring progresses. I'll try both for myself and see which I do better on.  I'll be hitting it a lot too this year.  A 20-30 minute drive versus an hour plus to the beach/bays will let me fish more during my work week for sure.   Maybe I'll see ya out there.

It’s unfortunate that I’ve heard that my favorite spot I used to go to is no longer easily accessible. Because of security and the fact that the best fishing is at night there is nowhere to park without the  possibility of being harassed or getting a ticket.
