      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

you do need to buy it and I have no idea how expensive or even where to get it but you just move your boat around the chart and you can see what under you. you can rotate it spin it change views and what not.

you do need to buy it and it's not cheep from what I hear I had a friend load it on my puter but there is no way for me to copy it or share it other wise I would hook you up. the chart doesn't go as far as magnolia and I'm working on getting more charts for that area. It is too cool though

There's no rocks near Manchester and no fish either ;-);-);-);-)

Gosh, I grew up fishing those shores in the 50's, 60's and 70's. Been back every year 2-3 times until last year and I've never had any trouble finding fish, especially in the fall. Gloucester to Marblehead and, even on to Nahant is a fantastic shoreline.
