Default New to the site.

Hey all. Just found this site a few days ago and seems like a lot of good info. So, I thought I'd sign on and give her a spin. Most of my fishing has been on the Mass. South Shore and down towards the Cape and Islands. South Shore and Boston Harbor Islands are quick and convenient, but I really like hitting the Elizabeth's for early morning Striper action, then hitting the Fluke in the Sound to round out the day. Maybe a bit of Scup and Seabass action too.
While I get better quality and quantity down that way, it's ironic that my biggest bass was taken right here in Scituate.
I'm really getting a serious jonesing for some fishing action. Can't come soon enough. I had all my tackle laid out in the kitchen today getting things in order. Snelled a mess of hooks and leaders. Changed out some hooks on plugs. Threw out anything that was even remotely questionable. Reels were all greased and serviced, but I dusted them off. Just need to check all the eyes on the rods for any nicks and such and get them changed if needed. Boat will be getting unwrapped soon I hope if the weather ever breaks for us.
I'm gonna try to do a bit more surfcasting this year too. Need to look into getting a new pair of waders as the old ones leak like a sieve.
Well that's about it for now. Looking forward to sharing some info with other members here. Patiently waiting for the water to warm up (not patient too much longer though)

Default Welcome to the site !

I have bee waiting and doing the same, tackle out on coffee table and such. What size boat do you have ?

It won't be long now, I think the next warm day I'm going to get my boat in the water and take it for a ride. The boat is new and has never been in the water so I better learn before there are to many people around or friends asking to go fishing... I want to look like an old pro by striper time :)

Again, welcome to the board

Default Migh test the boat out and check on hold overs

I was thinking of testing the boat tomorrow and maybe trying my luck for some hold over stripers. I wet tested the boat for a quick ride today... went out of Bristol around Hog Island and the cruised the shore of Prudence... Just messing around with the boat for now.. looks like my FF gets a lot of wash from my prop when running at high speeds, anyone notice how theirs work crusing?

The boat does move for a 19' with a 115 I was doing 38 knots with me and the two kids, small chop and was pretty good.. I didn't get wet till I fell in walking on the trailer lol

Cuz N, you may just have to play around with tweaking the transducer up or down a bit until you find less turbulance.
