I haven't fished the surf for too many years. Used to live in Salem. I go to Plum Island, Cape Cod Canal, and RI, now that I've started back up. My Son wanted to try the surf. Got a couple of new sticks to go with the old ones. Once a surf rat always a surf rat.

Moved into Crescent Beach, Niantic, CT in July last year, couple hundred steps from the sound. Too busy in the last year with home repairs remodeling and work travel, but intend to do some fishing from shore this year. Newbie to fishing, so gotta get rod, reels, jigs etc... Spent sometime on the site last night, looks like there might be one or two out there ;) that know something about it. I guess first querstion whats the best bait/equip shop in Niantic for advice?

Thanks for the excellent site! I'm a total newbie. One of the younger guys interested in fishin. This site will be an invaluable tool as I seek to learn about the pursuit. I'm just starting out - grew up fishing freshwater mostly bass and trout. Every summer would go down to Indian River Bay with my dad and brothers and my uncle would take us out on his boat to fish for flounder, weakfish, and seabass. Once I got a little older, we started fishin for others, like tog. Now, I rarely have a chance to get out on the ocean.

I'm headed to Acadia National Park, in early September and I plan to do some 'research' in the field - put in a little sweat and blood. What I've read here doesn't sound too promising for stripers in Maine this year, but I'm not about to give up before trying. I've been reading up and will keep doing so - thanks for all the good info! If anyone has any specific advice or any particular parts of the blog that they can point to that address fishing conditions in maine this year, please give a shout. I want to figure stuff out for myself, but I will only have 9 days or so up there so I want to maximize my time. My family's going on a camping trip there but I am willing to drive a ways if I can get to the fish. I plan to be shore and jetty fishin - but if there are any recommended trips out that way, that's another thing I'm tryin to research.


Tight lines all and thanks for this site!

Hello all,

My name is David and am a 100%disabled vet and have been fishing off and on all my life. I am moving from NV to MO the 1st of September in hopes of finding a place my Wife son and I can afford to live and be able to fish. Currently i have a 14ft Gregor aluminum boat with a 15 horse Evinrude given to me by my Dad. I have made some improvement like addin an Eagle 480 Elite fish finder/GPS and decked the boat.

Currently I fish mostly Lake Mead which is over 100 miles from my house. While the Stripers seem to be getting healthier and more plentiful the trip to the lake(diesel fuel cost) and the distance are really limiting my trips there.

Lake Mead offers great fishing for two short periods of time. I am really looking forward to a longer season, more species of fish and more lakes to figure out.

Any info about Stripers or any other fishing within 100 miles of Kansas City will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum David, and thank you for your service to our country!

I lived in Kansas City from '95 to '04, but was on the road most of that time with my job, an as a result I never really explored the lakes around there as well as I would have liked.

Blue Springs Lake is close and holds some decent fish. Truman Lake is a bit further away but also has pretty decent fishing at times. Definitely would be worth checking out.

Hi all! Found the site surfing for information on stripers. Nice site and alot of good info here. I am pretty new to striper fishing and where I reside here in Illinois we have a couple nice lakes that have both hybrids and pures. Sold my bass boat and picked up a Lund so I can troll for them now and looking forward to catching my first "reel burner" soon!

Thanks for all the good info. Hope I am able to contribute some in return sometime.

Tom
