      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. Great report. Nice to hear from you again.
  2. Hi Steven Nice report. Gotta love dealing with them seals, eh? Reminded me of our trip last fall dealing with the seals trying to steal our catches. Glad you had a good time. Fishing is finally picking up for us in So. Me.
  3. Sorry if I've been ranting. I've been a bit frustrated lately. Just that we have been getting more and more requests to shut down access to shorelines here in So. Me. Some published, some not. On another note.....2008 has not been very good to me and many others that I have talked to. A lot of my usual spots that I can rely on have produced next to nothing. Thank god I have a kayak, as that seems to be the only way I can find em. Shore fishing has absolutely, sux'd. All my stripahs, what few they are, were caught on live mackerel, TubeNworm or chunks. Lures don't even get a look. Again, sorry about the ranting on shore access.
  4. I've been to Seven rivers, nice guy and hope you have a GOOD time. Just as an added note...... "A" hole surfer dudes from outah state was asked not to park on a side road that partially blocked a private drive way off a side street in Ogunquit (Marginal Way area). Surfer dudes told the owner to F off. Now we have lost that access as well. Ogunquit police have posted the entire road as NO PARKING. If this trends continues...................
  5. Situation at Parsons has changed. Due to folks (tourists or locals, I'm not sure) the Parson family has shut down Parson's beach to all night fishing. Kennebunkport police will enforce the family request. A-holes (tourist or locals) have not respected the beaches by littering, having all night parties and bon fires and trashing the place. Another place in So. Maine now off limits. I am pretty bitter about this but.....probably not caused by fisherman from sites that respect the fishery. I suspect lurkers and tourists that just don't give a sheet about our state. I see it all the time. "Get out of my way, I'm on vacation". Fishermen that respect my state, get my respect. All others can stay home. I (we) don't need your tourist $.
  6. Didn't happen for me on November 1st, but I managed to pick up 4 stripahs at first light on November 2nd. My November mission was accomplished. Let's see what this next storm will do to the weekend.
  7. Dont' give up just yet. I haven't. Peanuts, Mackerel and Stripahs are still on the menu to the North. Birds are giving away schoolies along the shore and I know some big fish are hanging onto the last of the pogies. I'm taking some time off from work on Nov 1st to catch a November stripah in Maine waters. This is the year for me to do it. Water temps are still decent. If I'm not succesfull on Nov 1st, then I will keep trying until I'm convinced they are gone for good. Good luck to the dedicated fools that are still trying. :lol:
  8. What the hell are ya doing on the other coast? Did you abandon this coast?
  9. I have noticed that High pressure, blue birds days usually equals lock jaw unless you are offering live bait. I like a baro pressure of 29.85 and dropping for all fishing. (ie) salt, fresh, hardwater.
  10. Hi Scoobe Fished out of a buds boat. Had thoughts with the Yak, but.....those waters move hard and I'm not much for taking risks while out in the Yak. Hope your summer is going OK.
  11. Hi NH Dad. Quantity (numbers caught) are down. But.....Quality (size) is up. The treble was changed out to large circle hooks. 9 fish between 38 & 44 inches. Love them pogies!!!! 44in_34lbs.bmp
  12. Since I have not posted in quite some time, I'd like to share this story and picture. (This will be my first picture since the site upgraded, hope it worked) While live-lining pogies, I hooked into a cow that was peeling line. When I went to set the hook, I was on for a few seconds, then lost her. When I reeled my line back in.......I noticed I got my live pogie back and I stole a partially digested pogie right out of the cow's stomach. Unreal or what?
  13. Lookin forward to it!
  14. Hey SK Nice to see you are still cranking them out. BTW- Last evening, on a local river, I picked up a few schoolies on soft plastics. Finally, some fish in So. Me. Then as the sun was setting and getting a bit darker, I started casting one of your home mades, and sure enough. Success. :D
  15. Last year, May 8, caught a bunch of schoolies in a So. Me. rivah to start the season. Definately migrants. This year, May 8 again, but only managed one small in an hour worth of casting. This fish was about 12 inches, no sea lice and not overly bright like a fresh migrant. I suspect this particular fish was a holdover. (I could be wrong) I can also say that the O river does support hold overs as well. Either way, the season has begun, thanks to the great weather of late.
