      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

Hey Salty, did you notice the putrid mulch like crap that seems to be suspending in the surf? I thought it would of been gone by now but is seens to be suspended in the surfline; leaves, garbage, sticks and I'm sure it's having an affect on the fishing.

Gotta love how messy that beach gets. Funny thing is that when they open up the entire beach to fisherman and beach-goers, it gets picked up real quick. There's got to be a balance between saving some birds and cleaning the beach dump!

.02 worth!

Back in the 60's my father used to tell us to pull the lines out of the water when the tide turned . I remember colored dyes, strips of leather and bubbled up schmegma and god knows what else coming down from the merrimack. After about 35 mins or so it would clear and we were free to fish again. The coast guard boats were at the docks where the old pilings stand now next to the fishing party docks. Just for fun we used to try to reach the cutters decks with our weights when dad wasnt looking, and yes Kay was there selling us worms. So to see regular fishing stuff and common natural debris doesnt really bother me. you are right, they do clean up when the beachgoers return. tight lines.............catch the big one

M ans son :wacko:
