      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 guys

I recently heard that the Salmon run in the Smith River area of Cal. and in fact the entire Northwest was great this year. It is now Steelhead season but I found this nice vid.

On another note there have been a great number of mass animal die offs. The latest I have seen is this school of memhaden!!!! Yikes!!!

The water should get warm real fast with the lack of snow this year & no spring melt off.

I checked the offshore buoys and the water is still at 43 degrees. It normally is down to 38 this time of year. Not sure if it makes a difference to stripers but the bait might get messed up.

My local ponds still have open water on the them. Early ice out!
