      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

Rye Harbor State Park

5 posts in this topic

If your looking for a great place to take the wife and kids (and get a little fishing in as well :D ) check out Rye Harbor State Park....

http://www.nhstateparks.org/ParksPages/Rye.../RyeHarbor.html

I took my boys there last night and it's great place to visit! They have grills, picnic tables, benches overlooking the water, great view of the Ilses of Shoals, solid jetty, manucured lawn and oh, lots of room to fish. We fished off the jetty for a little bit catching a couple of schoolies. Later while the boys were turning over every stone along the shore line I fished opposite the jetty (left side of the park) catching about 10 schoolies using an Atoms popper. If nothing else it's a great place to relax, always a cool breeze that keeps the bugs away. Check it out, only a few minutes from Hampton and there's Seafood resturants right next door! :lol:

Back when I was living in NH (c. 1991), we used to fish off the jetty at the Rye State Park from 1-2 hrs either side of high tide. We'd fish with seaworms, casting out into the channel at the end of the jetty. On a good day, the bite would be non-stop and we'd catch some pretty large sized flounder that made excellent fillets ... yum. Don't know if they're still there, but this would be the time of year to fish for 'em.
