      Surfcaster's 2016 Reboot!   09/21/2016

      Howdy, folks. I know this is way overdue, and the damage is probably already done, but after weeks of working with the database I've finally wiped out all of the spam posts and topics. This was no easy task, considering there were three-quarters of a million bogus posts and nearly three hundred thousand bogus topics. Once a hacker/spammer network finds a vulnerability, they send out automated programs that basically destroy a database like this. Over the past couple weeks I've migrated all of the good data into a more current, secure platform with the hopes that we can somehow rebuild. New member registration is tightened way up, and a third-party spam monitoring service is in place. I've also invested in an awesome new gallery extension,  allowing members to create, manage, and share image galleries. Please give it a try, and let me know if there are any issues. I'm still testing and working out the bugs. Surfcaster's forums were once an amazing resource for everyone to enjoy, and we're hoping it can once again build back up. The main site (non-forums) is pretty banged up, but once the forums are complete my next task is to re-invent that as well. Spread the word. Hope to see a lot of you back! Cheers, Andrew

  1. Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone has ever gone out of Eastman's Docks in Seabrook, NH on the 3 hour bass fishing trip? I was scanning the information on their website, but it doesn't say exactly how the trip operates. Its a 35 dollar trip for three hours, but I'm curious as to the methods they employ to put customers on fish, so to speak. I guess I'm wondering, what do they give the customers to use for bait? How far out would one expect to go out if they used this trip? Thanks, Rob
  2. Ugh, dogs already?
  3. Walmart is the cheapest, as far as I can tell
  4. Hi everyone, I'm thinking of fishing Joppa on Friday. I've never been, so I have some questions. I'm thinking of using a 10' jon boat and paddle out with my brother in law. Would this boat suffice? Next question. Where can I launch? I keep seeing that little ramp next to the house on that road thats about 2 miles from surfland, just past downtown newburyport. Can I launch there? Last question. Do baitfish come into joppa during the high tide? Thank you, Rob
  5. This is probably a dumb question, but why is the mouth so damn dangerous?
  6. Hi everyone, I'm going out this Saturday with a friend out of Beverly. Are mackeral still around?
  7. If the mackerel take off, will there be bunker or herring around? If there mackerel get spooked, do you suppose you can lure them in with chum?
  8. Its too cold for them up this way. Occasionally you'll hear reports of one or two this way, but chances are they got knocked off course and ended up in our waters.
  9. Hi everyone, Is it safe and possible to use a Jon Boat in Joppa? Also, is it possible to jig up mackeral in Joppa? Thanks, Rob
  10. Deval is a moron. Don't blame me, I voted for Muffy!
  11. That place in Haverhill where that guy got the herring is called River Street Bait & Tackle. They are on River street. They are awesome. They have awesome bait at awesome prices.
  12. I don't like fishing Lawrence either, but I'll tell you, after fishing, hit Lawtons Hot Dog Stand. If you eat outside by the canal, you can see a whole bunch of big carp swimming by.
  13. here here. I inherited my grandfather's old 113 after he died, and he bought this reel 30 years ago. After I got it, say 6 years ago, this thing is still a brute. It had the chromed brass spool, now they are plastic or whatever they do. Penn used to be very dependable, now, I'm not so sure.
  14. What model did you get? I know the senators and internationals are made in the US, as well as some of the levelwinds.
  15. I wonder if its old stuff cabelas just wants to move?
  16. Hey everyone, I know I'm posting in the wrong forum, but, I'm going to be Kayak fishing Joppa in the spring, and I was just curious as to what to use for a rig. I was thinking a Penn 6500, with 20lb fireline, The rod on the other hand I'm not sure of. I want an inshore model, light, but can handle chunk baits. Any suggestions? Thanks
  17. River Street Bait and Tackle on River Street in Haverhill has herring, 6 packs, 10 packs, flats, they got it
  18. go with the shimano
  19. Maybe the Mechanix series gloves with the clarino palm and fingers. If anything, you won't feel heat friction from the line leaving your finger......
  20. Yeah thats a loss for children who loved his show. At least he died doing what he loved.
  21. Scoobe, I hate to say this, but I strongly disagree with you here. The United States and England are not the only countries to have been victims of terrorist attacks at the hands of Islamofascists. The Madrid Spain Bombings? Bali? Russia? These people attack countries to interupt not only one's way of life, but its financial institutions as well. You say that its not about religion and freedom, but I hate to tell you, yes it is. You can't blame poverity, oppression etc, because these people choose to live this way. They are against progession of the times. These people are brainwashed into thinking that if they commit these acts, then they will go to heaven and get 70 women, so they basically look forward to this. You say you that we put ourselves in the cross hairs because we are aggressors in the middle east? Remember Scoobe, 9/11 happened on our soil, we were attacked unprovoked. Its not about oil, which seems to be the liberal response to this war. Oil Oil Oil. Its nonsense. I really don't understand why people are supportive of the United States and feels sympathy for terrorists. We are stepping it up because we don't, and we won't stand for this nonsense at the hands of these people.
  22. They are supporting Hezbollah because Hezbollah are using scare tactics. Its similar to the Saddam Hussein regime. The one thing you cannot forget, is that 9/11 happened because we are hated because we don't make Islam the uniform religion of this great country. These islamofascists are willing to die for their cause. They don't care who they take out with them, so long as they get their point across. One of the great things about this country is that we have the freedom to choose our religion. I'm sorry to say, but if we elect a liberal president in 2008, there will probably be less of a focus on terrorism.
  23. Beckett sucks. I'm going tomorrow, just got engaged to my wonderful girlfriend, and we are celebrating. Hopefully Schilling will show Beckett how to pitch. Oh, and going to PI tonight. Will report tomorrow morning
  24. you know, they say if you get stung by one, have someone piss on you......
