      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

Old Orchard Beach report 5/28, 5/29

4 posts in this topic

Well finally grabbed some bloodworms to try my luck off the beach Monday night on the incoming. After about 30min I got my first tap of the year, minutes later I landed my first bass of the year (all of about 11"). I managed 4 more fish in the 14-18" range.

Decided Tuesday night to do the same. I was a beautiful evening to be at the beach. Wasn't long before they hit hot and heavy. Landed and released 8 fish all in the 14-20" range before running out of worms. Water is surprisingly warm at the shore for this time of year IMHO.

Hopefully some bigger fish will be here soon.

One of the largest stripers I ever caught came off Old Orchard Beach. I was fishing with my 12 year old son at dusk. 2 rods in spikes. One rod just about pulled into the water. Set the hook, and handed it over to my son. He fought the fish for a while, and finally pulled it out of the surf. Over 40" , and a small crowd had gathered around him. Should have seen some of the faces when we released that fish to fight another day. Caught a couple more, including handing a rod to some guy that was standing with us for about an hour. His first striper - I'm sure he was converted.

I ahve always done well up there I used to vaction up in the ocean park, had some really nice fish up there. Did you dig your own worms from the beach? That was some times the best part. Congrats on the 40 and then to release it always good to hear. And letting that guy reel one in is awsome
