      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

Piscat outside and upper

3 posts in this topic

After going to Septemberfest Saturday morning and pick'in some new hunting gear, I was ready to put away the rod and pick up the bow that afternoon. But my daughter and neice wanted to go for a ride in the "lobster" boat. We get down to the mouth to find birds diving and fish busting. Every cast w/ a popper hooked a mid sized blue.

Here is Morgan w/ her first chopper.

They never touched the cut macks, divers, or jig. Just dailed in on the minnows on the surface. Tried for one w/ the fly rod but couldn't get it to gether in the wind.

I decided then to launch the aquasport (which I'd talked myself out of a week before) and head-out sharking on Sunday. It took $250 to fill'er up (out of my Allagash trip fund) and we in by 6:30am Sunday. Forcast was marginal w/ 10-15 & 2-4', get past 2KR to find 15-25 Erly w/ 4-7'. After ten minuted of taking it nose on and a few soakings we give up on the blue-dog run and look for choppers. No birds to be found & no chance on spotting a blitz, we troll diver and poppers. Again the poppers got the bite on. Lost count on how many but from 7:30 to 10:30 we didn't go 10 minutes w/o a hit. Lots of big boys, many doubles and a few hat tricks. Never surface trolled for blues before, what a blast; a couple even cleared the water as they hit.

Took friend out, from down South, last night, whos in town for the race. Didn't get 200 yards and stripers everywhere; 15"-30" taking anything we threw @ them. Fished with-in site of the dock all evening. Had maybe 1/2 dozen casts w/o a strike. Was able to catch fish on every plug/jig/rubber in my bag :lol: .

Those deer are safe for a few more weeks, cause I can't pass up fishing like this. :P
