      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. Thanks! So far not alot of action for me, just some schoolies. Hopefully things will continue to improve with the warming temps. I've had alot of fish just chase my lure back to the boat and not take it, it gets frustrating. But I'll get um eventually. Good luck to all you guys fishing down the coast from me! Hopefully i'll have a chance to get down there this summer I've only fished Plum Island a few times but had good results and would like to get back. I may have a chance to get down around mid August, how is the fishing down there by that time? Thanks, and I'lll keep you posted on the fishing up here.
  2. Thanks, Sounds promising, I'll let you know when I catch the 50 pounder :wacko: :D
  3. I'll let you know, I probobly wont be able to get out untill this weekend, it should be better then anyway with all the warm weather we are now having. Good luck, and tight lines!
  4. Not alot of Big ones yet but a few schoolies around so atleast its a start. Hopefully it will soon get better with the warm temps coming right up. I cant wait!
  5. Glad to hear somone is finally catching fish in Maine now. About 2 weeks and they will be up my way I would say. Last year it was June 3rd when they started hitting. Probobly later this year though. PRF~
  6. Thnaks for the response. I figured sometime in early may. The penobscot was very high today. I hope this rain stops soon, so I can get my last day of skiing in for this season. And switch gears into fishing :D
  7. Hey all, I hope you all had a good winter. It feels good to be back on the board. I was just curious if anyone has caught or seen any sighns of stripers yet in southern maine. I know its way to early up my way, but when do they usually start showing up in southern maine?
  8. I'll be around portland this weekend and was wandering where the best spots would be to catch some stripers and blues and what to use for lures or bait, also is springpoint a good spot? THanks in advance
  9. I use snaps when fishing tins, jigs and crankbaits. But when i fish soft body lures like slugos and storm shads, I prefer to tie them on. I think it gives them better action. But snaps are definatley more handy. Greg~ <'((><
  10. Thanks for the help, I give those a try
  11. This reminds me of a time we caught a seagull in Bar harbor using a floating crankbait, only diffrence is we hooked him in the beak. He put up one heck of a fight though.
  12. I know That i must sound like an idiot asking this, but What is a Tube'n Worm rig? Because I have heard alot of people talk about them but I wasnt sure what they are. Thanks in advance Greg~ <((><
  13. Hi, Penobscot bay is a great bay to fish for sripers and mackerel the macks are around from early july to November and the stripers are around from June 1st to mid to late september. I have seen large schools of stripers chasing mackerel in some of the harbors. And from June till August the stripers are in the penobscot river all the way to the first dam, and can be easily caught on bloodworms and lures mimicking herring. But if you are ever in the area and intersested in catching bait any spot in penobscot holds great numbers of macks all summer. Blues are scarce but can be caught on popers, near Belfast is one of best spots for them. Stripers can be picked up on chunked macks anywhere on the Belfast side of the bay. Hope this helps. Greg
  14. Its illegal to gaff a striper anyways
  15. Do chunks of mack work good for cod or haddock?, because there arnt many bait shops in my area and I can easily catch mackerel. Thanks in advance Greg~ <'(((><
