      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

10 inch fish on a 10 foot rod

9 posts in this topic

I know we all like to post about the biggun, but I couldn’t resist sharing this story.

99% of my fishing is done in various rivahs in So. Me.

Yeah, I catch a lot, but…..most are schoolies.

Last night I decided to try for the biggun as I really wanted to feel line peeling.

So I put on my waders, grabbed my 10 foot St. Croix, some clams and hiked out onto a rocky outcropping off the beach.

Imagine my surprise when I reeled in the smallest stripah I ever caught.

All of 10 inches. B)

I took it in stride, had a laugh and promised to revisit that spot in September.

:bluefish: I think the smallest striper I caught was 8 inches :bluefish:

It still counts as a nonskunking

I know the feeling. I caught a striper this year that wasn't much longer than the bomber it hit. Ballsy little bugger.

2006, the Year of the Microbass.

Guyza,

Were you fishing the beach front at long sands just north of of

the camp ground?

Chowderhead (armand)

Hey Armand, you change your screen name?

What the heck is going on with you?

I was thinking you gave up fishin?

To answer your question, YES.

Give a call and stop being a stranger.

Caught one in the Saco river early in the season that was about the same size! I have no idea how it fit the 5 inch Storm Shad in it's mouth! B) Or what it would have done with it if it were a real bait fish!
