      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

Met Marty and Ryan at 4am.Thunder and Lightning and Downpours for first hour as we trolled the beach and points for zip.Heading to a small island at first light had a nice hit in 8'of water right up on the rocks.Fish spun me around quickly and had a nice tow ,peeling line off the reel and bringing the yak right up onto the rocks.Giving a little line to her she pulled me clear of the Island and into the bouys.Wrapping on a bouyline I thought Oh!no hear I go again.Luckily I managed to guide her around the wrap and clear.Finally getting my hand in her mouth and dragging her aboard.Marty came over and helped me with the pic and measurement 38"Looking at the fish you would have thought it was bigger.Big head,thick all the way through,shoulders.Quality fish.Joe joined us shortly after but schoolies were all we could muster after daylight.Kinda discouraging considering th amount of fish I marked.Water temp56 that's 10 gegrees cooler than wed nite.Thanks guys for coming down.Let's do it again?

Nice touch, Lefty.

Also nice to see you're still around on this site.

I sure do miss using my yak.

Only been out a few times this season.

I'm being treated for tendonitis in the elbow.

(Tennis elbow, sux)

May have to trade in my yak for a Hobie with the mirage pedal system.
