      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, I need a new Calendar and was wondering if anyone has seen a surfcasting themed calendar. TIA Steve

  4. I hit parking lot 1 and sandy point for the incoming tide. Nothing
  5. Hi, I fish there all the time, here's what I recommend make sure your equipment can handle the strain, I use a 12' ugly stick with a penn 8500ss., 20 lb big game with a 40 lb shock leader. Set the drag at @ 1/3 lb test. Mark on the reel where the setting is. In the normal play of a keeper I do tend to tighten and lossen the drag. There are times when the fish have been over 40" that the 1st pull burns my forearms and I will loosen the drag a bit and retighten when I turn the fish. After setting the hook with a quick flick of the rod hold the rod high and keep a steady tight line. Sharpen the hooks !! This has the biggest impact to hookin fish. big bait, big fish, personally if I'm there to catch a bigun I will use either cut herring or macks. Clams will also work, but the small ones will pick at the bait. Hold your rod, only use the spike only when re-baiting. This keeps the hook in the fishes mouth and gives you a headsup that you got a hit. I set the hook on the hit, some folks wait, but I think if its a keeper that the fish will engulf the bait, small ones pick at it. If you miss the fish, don't reel in they maybe back or another will take a poke at it. There's a reason why you got a hit in that spot, that because the fish are there. Wait a couple of minutes and if no hit then check your bait, its proabably gone. Good Luck Steve
  6. I live in salisbury and I like bridge road and crossroads if fishing in Salisbury, Steve
  7. I normally don't comment here, but if your fishing during the tide the rod is in your hands and you don't have time to drink. If your fishing outside of the tide, then there's not alot of fish to be had and you can relax and have a beer. I actually enjoy zipping 4 oz lead right past the ear of idiot who steps in front of me. Eventually they move. Steve
