      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

Quonnie Report 09/27

10 posts in this topic

Got a late start heading down to Charlestown to hit the night->am dropping tide. After a couple few cold ones we headed over to Quonnie at 3am, just in time to catch the last of the early crowd leaving. There were only two other guys on the jetty when we got out there. The temp. stayed around 58-60 and despite the thick fog and occasional sprinkle the weather was great. We even lucked out and had the wind at our backs... a first for me.

It was good to find that those hordes of moby blues had moved offshore for a while, so we got a chance to do some quality bass fishing. The action started immediately, and we caught/got hit nearly every cast until we cashed in at about 6:45am when the bass moved on.

All in all a good night... we ended up with about a dozen bass each, all keepers from 28" to 33", and we each got a lone bluefish. The fish I kept was the largest one and the last one I caught, a fat 33". I got nearly identical fish my last 2 casts, and both nailed my popper from the rocks like freight trains as the dawn was ending.

Went back to the cottage, grabbed a brew (so what it's 7am :D ), and cleaned the catch... perfect. To me life doesn't get any better than that :banana:

Wow damn nice report buddy! It almost makes me wanna go to Jersey and fish the "breachways." That sure was nice action you got into... much better than my fish for 5 hours and only get one bite and then snap your line on the rocks action.

I'm not sure if Joisy has breachways Scoobe, but if they do, I assure you the ones in RI are much closer :D

Nice report Midnite. Only 15 days til the boat has to come out of the water. It is time for me to start gearing up for the surf. This weekend is the boat show and then football. Lets do some fishing soon.

Thanks Captain... and yes you should Scoobe and Strike King. Besides Quonnie, the other breachways and beaches in and around Charlestown have been steadily producing good bass and blues. Some other places to look into...

Point Judith

East beach - Charlestown

Charlestown breachway

Weekapaug breachway

Watch Hill - Westerly

Good luck!

Midnight:

Thanks for your reports on the RI coast. We'll have to make your moderator of the RI Forum. I usually get down to Quanni or Napatree around the end of October.

No problem Onshore... RI is great striper country and hopefully some of the northern folks will take the short road trip early/late season when the action is slower up here. It only takes about 1h45min from my home here just north of Boston, and the ride goes by quick. I've been getting down there a couple times a month from MA since last season, and this year my friend is renting a house from Sept. to June in Charlestown so it's much easier to fish thru the night and dawn.

It's a beautiful area, and all the rocks and structure have added a whole new dimension to my fishing, mainly with my plug and eel technique. The action has been great since August, and by late this month the cow reports will start rolling in. I bet you take those big plugs you mentioned in tatoobob's lure post when you head down... especially the Danny's B)

If the mod team thinks I am qualified, I'd be glad to moderate this forum.
