      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. I don't know, that's a good guess. Make sure to check out mudhole.com.
  2. Excellent. Golf during the day and fishing at night. Spring is here.
  3. For whatever reason, fishing gear manufacturers seem to stand behind their products really well. I had tip break off on my Okuma Solaris rod and they sent me a whole new rod, didn't even ask for the old one back. Now I have an extra bottom half. Just in case.
  4. The internet can be a great place to find deals. I bought my gear from jamestackle.com. Good guy, great service and good prices.
  5. Don't look at those Sicilian girls too long. Their fathers may have you sleeping with the fishes rather than casting to them. :P
  6. I'm not sure, New York, New Jersey, etc. Not Mass. Check the regs, it is illegal to catch/posess river herring and alewife until 2008. Or is it 2009?
  7. Looks like what I use for bait. :P
  8. Can anyone say who cares. :P
  9. Just curious...When and where is everyone planning to start their season? Rhode Island, the Cape in April, May? South Shore, Boston Harbor, North Shore in May? I'm thinking the Cape in early May.
  10. It's funny how diferent the fish look down there/this time of year. The head is small compared to its fat belly. By the time they get up here they are so slimmed down the head looks huge compared to the body.
  11. It is easy and natural to gripe about taxes, but we aren't that bad off. I just did my taxes and after all the deductions and credits me and my wife ended up paying 15%. Yes, throw in all the other ways we get taxed, sales, gas, etc. and maybe that percentage goes up to 20%. Still not that bad. Eurpoe pays in the 60-70% range. They get all their social welfare things paid for. Great if you need that stuff. I don't. I'll take the good ole' U S of A anyday even if I have to pay 50 bucks or so to fish. P.S. gas is $2.-- per gallon only recently. In Europe it has been over $4 for a long long time. And in Iraq it is 8 cents a gallon. Go figure, but that's another discussion entirely.
  12. Come on guys. Hey, sign me up. I'll send you all my merchandise and you promise to give me back some money when it sells. That sounds like a good deal.
  13. When I bought mine a couple years ago it was just the MX but mine is the same as the MXL now. I have 100 yards of 50# dacron with 300 yards of 50# Spiderwire Stealth on top of it. The spool spins forever so it took a while getting used to thumbing for casting, but now I have it down. Fanatastic reels. Loud clicker with barely any resistance, strong consistent drag and simple sturdy design that's easy to clean and not much to fail. I'm looking at getting one of the big brothers for tuna and shark. We'll see.
  14. I didn't see the other list of rods and reels but wanted to add what I use for a reel, Avet MX4.5 They are made in CA by a couple of brothers. Doesn't get much better for quality than these reels. My $.02
  15. I believe if you cruise about a hundred miles offshore and then make a turn to the south and go another 1500 or so you will be able to catch a sailfish. That's where I caught mine. (see avatar)
