      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. So be it! Pt. Judith. Leaving at 2am for a fishing adventure. Good luck Chris. Thanks, Chris.
  2. I am fishing Pt. Judith tomorrow in a 22' Triumph. Would anyone bypass Pt. J. for another destination?
  3. I hope you sell your rod and I am equally happy that many of you show much discern about the many aspects of fishing. I really enjoy the website. Thanks
  4. Why are you selling a $400.00 rod after using it ONCE, if I may ask? I think Sopira is interested in a rod that can handle 3/4-4oz.
  5. Fishing and catching. Excellent. Have fun. Thanks for the report.
  6. I'm going with sunrise and sunset. There was an article in OTW about the three phases of morning and evening twilight when stripers are the most actively feeding.There is civil twilight, when the sun is no more than 6 degrees past the horizon.This lasts about 25 minutes. Then comes nautical twilight, which is the time before sunrise an sunset when the sun is between 6 and 12 degrees below the horizon. This stage lasts for about 30 minutes. The last stage is astonomical twilight when the sun is 12 and 18 degrees below the horizon. This lasts about 25 minutes and all is affected by cloud cover. I mostly run with this.
  7. Nice set-up. Is your vent on the bottom of your spray station? Looks like you use "buca" for your clear coat. I must try that. :banana:
  8. I just received shipment of lure building material. Last week I found a supply of 4" maple plug blanks that were actually old taps that they drove into maple trees. They are sweet looking pieces that resemble a small baitfish plug. Now, I am in the game. I build custom homes and have a huge supply of most hardwoods and red cedar from 5/4 to 2by stock.If anybody is interested in any red cedar, I have a ton of 2+2 in 30" lengths. Let me know.
  9. Nice job on the plugs.
  10. Do you turn plugs Strike King ?
  11. Does anyone use cherry to fashion plugs? Maple? Poplar?
  12. I, would pull the fish off the surf to to the beach and then drag the fish with a hand gaff away the beach to a desirable location to un- hook and behold.
  13. Very nice indeed.
  14. In the April 13th issue of The Fisherman, the author of an article used D.O.A shrimp and caught stripers.
