      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

digging seaworms?

7 posts in this topic

anybody has experience digging seaworms? I called many bait shops on the north shore, no shop carries the seawworms this time of the year. I am thinking about digging them because I live very close to the beach. Anybody has any experience? Any tips where to dig? how to find them? mud or sand? how deep?

In New Hampshire state residents can take up to one quart of clam worms per day without a license. Best place to dig is in mud flats where there are also clams. Nice thing about worms is you can dig in closed clam areas. I can usually pick up a few dozen good size worms in about half an hour. Normally there only down 6 to 12". In NH your digging tool can not have a handle more then 18".

That is a perk of living in NH for sure. If you are in MA you need to get a digging permit from the municipality you want to dig in. My Dad used to dig worms on joppa flats in the early 60's and even then you needed to get a permit from the town.

If you want to dig a few up just go down to beach at low tide..look for a nice mussel bed (hint Danvers River) and you'll find some under the mussels.

The Discovery show "Dirty Jobs" did a segment on digging blood worms in Maine. I believe they were somewhere around Kittery?? Could be wrong on the exact area but somewhere around there. The digging was very good that day!
