      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

Piscataqua 8/20pm

Squid up river??

Fished in the Piscat in Eliot after work tonight. A bass on my third cast then nothing for hours on neither bait nor lures. Broke off a nice fish 5 minutes into a fight on cut herring. Had her straight up and down and she broke my 30lb leader in half:( caught a couple more small bass. Then at about 8 tonight I thought I'd hooked a tiny 10 inch maybe bass. Got it up to 2 feet from the surface and it let go. I brought the bait up to a foot so I could see if I still had a chunk and a squid comes up with it and attacks it. It pulls on it, lets go and darts in on it again and again for almost a minute. I just stared in amazement! I've never seen a squid four miles up river before.

The squid had a liking to herring, eh?

Yeah, it aggressively attacked the herring chunk over and over. Even when I pulled it away from it.

I just never heard of squid four miles up river. The tide was about half way in.
