      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. GRH...I traded in a few entry level set-ups for a nicer one this year. Did some research on this site and others and decided on the Teton Tioga. Super nice reel, totally sealed drag, easy spool changes. Plus it comes in less than what you were hoping to spend. Mo money for other gear. Check it out.

  2. I have to admit to spending nearly all my time in the kayak forum, but thought it was time to branch out.

    I'm new to the plug building game. Learned nearly everything on this and other sites. Here are a few pics of my first's.

    I'll tell you this was a GREAT way to kill the winter. I really enjoyed making these.


  3. I enjoy fishing the sweetwater as well. Definatly addicted to the salt, but the fresh stuff is much closer to my house. Some good info on this thread.

    Eric...what part of the state you fishing. I live out side Worcester, and am shocked at the size of some of the bass I pull out of the lakes/ponds around here.

  4. To Jeff, fishing is so much more than catching fish. Ever notice the beutiful landscapes he surrounds himself with...

    The lovely back drop of Deer Island, paddling around in the raw sewage of the mystic, and enjoying a nice day near the warm water outflow of the power plant.

    It just doesnt get any better than this! LOL Jeff, just messin with ya.

  5. Starting to get my stuff together as well. Few modifications to the yak this month and I'll be ready.

    While were on the subject of gear...

    I used Stren braided line last year. No complaints. I think its still in good condition, does anyone see a need to replace it? Stuffs kind of expensive.

    I replace the monofiliment line on all my freshwater gear each year, thats whats got me thinking.
