      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

Horseneck beach in Westport

8 posts in this topic

Any body fished at Horseneck beach in Westport?

It's my first season fishing, mostly in Hampton Inlet area in NH. Been having luck with smaller fish

Will be returning to Mass on the weekends in September and looking for places in that area.

Any good bait shops in the area that are open earlier in the morning?

There's some decent bluefishing in the surf there this time of year; you'd be best off using some big plugs, and cast out as far as you can. There's a bait shop up the road called Westport Marine, but it's not on 88; it's on the road to east. Go about 3 lights down, go right, go left, and start looking for it. I've never really liked the people there, but they do have what you need.

Yeah, you could try Riverside bait. They're usually cheaper. It's down 24 on the last exit at Tiverton before you go over the bridge to Newport. You exit, go left (south), then down about 1/4 mile and take a very hard right down a hill. Riverside is right below the bridge. While you're there, you might try casting for some blues right behind the shop on the railroad bridge.
