      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

Thames Stripers

3 posts in this topic

Fished for a few hours today and landed 3 20-25" stripers. 2 on 5" storm shad, 1 on 6" white sluggo.

Lots of guys fishing, most doing fairly well as the herring are in thick. Toughest part, really, was finding a spot to fish that you could acutally get a cast off (through the trees), and have enough access to fight and land the fish.

The fish are all holdovers, nothing from the sea - yet.

Thanks for the report. If the herring are in thick I am surprised that no migratory fish are on their heels. I always get my first travelers in the upper Merrimack as soon as the herring are there in numbers. Sunset with a 9" sluggo or 7" FinS has been my lucky charm the past few years.
