      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. Good Luck! Tight lines.
  2. I fished PI point from around 4:30 to 6 Tuesday the 20th. Caught a few in the 20's on 4" white storm shad. Fishing seemed slow but it was nice to break the ice for me.
  3. I've had good luck in the past finding bigger fish under a schoolie blitz. Seems to me that the big fish are lazy and sit under the blitz for scraps, imo.
  4. That's great news!
  5. Thnx for the info, much appreciated :lol:
  6. Where about did you guys fish?? Congrats on a day day fishing!
  7. Well said .
  8. Almost made that mistake last year at night. Thought it was a schoolie and went to lip it. :lol: Noticed that it was a snapper at the last moment. It isn't a nice scene when a blue bites someone. :bluefish:
  9. I also go with a single barbless hook on my fav bluefish lure. You can just give em a little slack when you get them to the boat they will spit the hook most times. Other than that...pliers! If keeping them....One nice pop with the billy club to the back of the head does it.
  10. Great reports Fred! Thank you!
  11. Stout Billy's in Portsmouth has everything you need to hook up your kegerator. Stout Billy's
  12. All very good advise. As for your drag, check it often!!! It can tighten without you knowing.
  13. Nice Fish Lefty!!! Maybe I do need a yak! I tried one for the first time last week, fresh water, caught a 4lb bass and it moved me around. I can't imagine what a 40 would do!
  14. I've seen what seals do to fish and never seen a clean cut like that. Seal teeth are more like cannine teeth.
  15. Amazing vid!! That must have been one huge blue!
