      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. Well finally grabbed some bloodworms to try my luck off the beach Monday night on the incoming. After about 30min I got my first tap of the year, minutes later I landed my first bass of the year (all of about 11"). I managed 4 more fish in the 14-18" range. Decided Tuesday night to do the same. I was a beautiful evening to be at the beach. Wasn't long before they hit hot and heavy. Landed and released 8 fish all in the 14-20" range before running out of worms. Water is surprisingly warm at the shore for this time of year IMHO. Hopefully some bigger fish will be here soon.
  2. Do they smell bad as you approach them (Mola that is). I thought that someone once told me they stank. :lol:
  3. Nice fish! Having grown up in Guilford, your post hit home. Get down there from Maine once in a while having my sister in law in Madison. Usually do a lot of bowt fishing out of Niantic with my father in law.
  4. I heard the Saco has come ALIVE!! A couple of buddies of mine hit it Sunday and boated 112 fish, biggest was around 22". Plastics seemed to be working wel for them.
  5. Cundys Harbor is on East Harpswell towards the mouth of the New Meadows river. There is some great fishing to be had there this time of year. The stripers stack up around the island ledges (which are abundant). Absolutley beautiful area! Watch for rocks while in the boat.
  6. In the summer there are lots of macks caught there. Stripers are to be found come dusk outgoing tides. Other than that watch out for cruise ships, panhandlers and wild Zebcos a-casting.
  7. :) Unless you are a little person that fish looks more like 26". Always hold the fish out (showing little hand as possible) to make it look big. Never buy tape measures at flea markets.
