      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

For those of you who like to keep a filet or two in the freezer I have heard these relatively cheap systems work great. They say that the filets come out as nice as the day you put them in. I haven't tried them so I don't know which is best but here are links to 2.

For the cheapskates (like me) out there, there is another way to do this.

1. Fill a bowl with warm water

2. Place the fillet, or any other item in a Zip-lock sandwich bag or freezer bag

3. Immerse it in the water up to the top of the bag and seal it without letting any water in.

The warm water softens the plastic and the water pressure forces the air out of the bag. No air, no freezer burn. You may need to move the bag around a bit to get all of the air out. Also dry the bag to keep it from sticking to other item in your freezer when it freezes.

I've used this method for years and it works well. Just had a bluefish fillet for dinner. B)
