      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. As long as I'm free, I'm in. Sign me up for team Surfcaster.
  2. I had a slight tear in my eye as I lowered the yak into the basement for the winter. RIP old girl! Hope everyone has a great New Year! Have fun and be safe.
  3. Would love to join you, but I think I'll be stuck home through the winter as well.
  4. I hear you...wouldnt be able to get away with those jeans on a SOT! Like that 4 wt by the way, hope you get a few months out of it before you crush it. LOL!
  5. Thats a funny lookin kayak Lefty!
  6. Starting to organize and pack things up a bit. I have a couple of those Cabelas 7 amp 12 volt batteries. Currently they are both charged. Do I keep them charged when storing them or run the battery dead? Maybe it doesnt matter. Just curious, as I would like to keep them in good condition. Thanks
  7. Hey guys, thanks for the info. I'll go charge em up.
  8. aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh the bud girls! Maybe the highlight of the season. Guyza, it doesnt matter if the bite is off when you got boats like that running around.
  9. It really was a great season. Im not totally throwing in the towel, but pretty much wrapping it up. I had the chance to fish 6-7 new locations (with winthrop being one of my new found loves) and had the oppurtunity to meet a bunch of you. Thanks for sharing information, and passing along helpful hints. I also want to throw a thank you out to Jeff...I learned a ton from him this year. Both on this site and on the water. Size of fish and quantity of fish definatly improved with Jeffs help. Thanks. Well its time to retire my self to the man cave...lots of work to be done before the spring.
  10. Lefty...your going to need a second job, you keep this up. With the winds and ocean condition, I did the same thing Sunday. Nice and relaxing. Caught a few small bass and some pickeral. I dont see us getting to many more days like Sunday...it was beautiful.
  11. I'll check in tomm. I was really hoping to get out sunday. Oh well, cant control the weather.
  12. Man, we havent had a good forcast in a months.
  13. Im in. Let me know when, where. I spent all spring fishing RI, but mainly fished the salt ponds as thats where the fish were. By late spring/early summer I discovered DI and had a hard time going anywhere else. I have fished east beach with friends, but its usually more of a social event. Couple beers with the rods in the water. I know the area alright, so should be able to help out a little.
  14. Im out Sat, but in for Sun.
  15. Im game! We'll just keep an eye on the weather and figure out where to meet. Joe, thats RI. Rt 4 to Rt 1. Eastern point of So County.
  16. Lefty...your really doing a number on your fly gear.
  17. I know there is a gathering on Monday, but there was also talk for the weekend. Im hoping to hit the North Shrore, but dont know the area at all. If anyone is heading out let me know. Thanks.
  18. No huge fish, but still a fun day on the water. I dont know about you Ridler but Im still feeling those rollers! It was nice seeing/meeting everyone today. Lefty...I owe you. You escaped without any reimbursement. Thanks again! BTW, I did catch a fish on every worm...just nothing with size. This was my first time to that area. Beautiful. Maybe I'll pick up one of those little places on the water! LOL!
