      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. Wales! Damn..I thought I was far.
  2. I remember as a kid, walking across the street to Seabrook harbor with my grandfathers pitchfork and a black rubber bucket. I could fill the thing in about 10 min. 1967 or so. Good Times.
  3. Mine will be the first week of July :banana:
  4. Once I was fishing for bluegills with ultralight tackle. I hooked a decent sized one and was reeling him in when a huge bass swam up and swallowed him. I immediately set the reel into freespool and let him take it and swallow it. The fish swam away until I was almost out of line I set the hook hoping to hook the big fish...to no avail. I cannot imagine a killer whale on the line.
  5. TTT
  6. Get hooked on the african water hole cam. I have seen elephant, lion, wildebeast, impala, warthog and hyena. http://www.wavelit.com/index.asp?ch=Wildlife&sh=africam
  7. I say go with "Onshore" and delete the others. I always liked that name but that is just me.
  8. Thanks guys. I had a good one. I like the new look of the board Now if I could just figger it out :lol:
  9. If anyone has or knows someone who has a beach cottage for rent please let me know. The cottage must be easy walking distance to the MA/ NH state line and is needed the week of July 4th 2007. Please PM me any info or leads or post here. Thanks
  10. Norton 2006 will remove it. I had uninstalled my version of Norton because it is a pig. I opened the forum and noticed my computer acting funny. I clicked on the "Bug Alert" and realized why. I immediately shut the computer off. Restarted and reinstalled Norton2006. It took a while because it had to log on to the interweb to update itself. When I ran a scan it found 3 instances of the virus noted above and removed them. Thanks Norton whoever you are.
  11. POST to keep myself onboard!
  12. The ocean sunfish has to be one of the weirdest creatures I have ever encountered.
