      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

5 posts in this topic

I cut & pasted this from a KFS forum

Here is the how the prizes are going to go.

Open Division

First Prize: Malibu X-Factor Kayak

Second Prize: Accent Carbon Paddle

Third Prize: Lotus Mildwater PFD

Fly Division

First Prize: Heritage Marquesa Kayak

Second Prize: Thomas & Thomas Fly Rod

Slam Division

First Prize: Ocean Kayak Prowler 13’

Second Prize: Bending Branches Stealth Paddle

Top Raffle Prizes: Ocean Kayak Prowler 13’, Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120

Also will raffle off over 40 other great kayak and fishing products – every person entered into the tournament has a chance to win these prizes. Extra chances for these prizes can be purchased the day of the event, with all proceeds going to Casting for Recovery.


Bluefish will not be counted for prizes, it will only be striper and weakfish measurements thta will count.

The only time a picture should be taken of a bluefish is to qualify for the slam division - and a measurement will not be necessary - just a picture. We are doing this to for safety as dealing with these fish and trying to get them to pose can be a little dangerous.

LOL about the bluefish. Nothing like someone lip gripping a blue.

Lots of big weaks there. Should be a blast. I am going to shoot for a slam.
