      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 Guys, I would like to visit one of the southern Maine rivers to fish for Stripers from the Kayak. I'm from Mass, and only semi familiar with Maine waters. Can you offer some suggestions? Thanks
  2. Roger that! I was fishing the merrimac via the kayak early on the 4th. It was a nuthouse by 10 am, when I finished up. I never saw so many many shore guys. Fish must get sinkers off the head. Another reason I kayak fish...to avoid that kinda circus on shore. Just holiday loonies...they will thin out.
  3. I was up at mouth of Merrimac on the morning of the 4th. Plenty of schoolies chasing the sandeels. There were bigger fish sunning themselves on Joppa flats. I was in kayak and would spook many pods of fish, but the were not taking anything. Frustrating.
  4. Don't these articles just kill ya?! Guy goes out to beach and sees hundreds of Stripers...all in casting range. Maybe some day for me. :(
  5. Keep in mind the sportfish we are ussually after are migratory fish. For example the Striper travels though both clear waters of the Cape and nasty river waters. So I don't think the issue is so much "where" we caught it. Just realize eating these fish regularly is not good. Occasional eating is OK. No worse that the rest of the crap we eat. :) For example, I caught and eat a nice Striper from the Charles river this spring. It was great. I would never eat any fish that actually lived in the Charles. Again, that is just one guy's opinion.
