Default New-Old Guy Checking in

Hi folks. I've been lurking for a while and thought I'd break the ice and say hello.

This image of my '64 Land Cruiser was taken in 1964 on Nauset beach. Check out the Penn reels on the top rack. I've been away from the surf for four decades but will be returning to it soon even though I am now 65 years young.

I'm heading east from northern Michigan with my two Gordon Setters on 1 April and will be lined up at Race Point CGS for my ORV permit that or the following week in a white 1996 4-Runner with Michigan Vietnam Vet plates.

If you see me there or at the Orleans Town Hall pleading for their ORV permit or on Nauset honk and say hello please.

I cast an old STELLA 16000F -- no not the newer FA or FB versions and recently acquired that 11 foot ARRA spinning rod.

Tight Lines all.

David Napierkowski

welcome David,

I don't usually go that far in to the cape as it's a two hour drive to the canal area already,but have heard from many people that nauset beach is hot for stripers.

Thanks for the welcome folks.

I've reduced the quailty ratio of the JPG Image. The reels are the old green Penn 700 series which a brother lost when his *canoe* capsized at Plum Island while I was in Vietnam. (He survived but he never saw fit to replace the gear ) The other one is a Squidder which amazingly enough I still have. The spinning rods were made by a gal some of you may have known named Helen DeStefino (sp) on Lamiglass blanks and the conventional was made by her on a Harnell blank. The rods were made circa 1960 and I have no idea what happened to them. She used to have a loft in Boston where I virtually lived watching her build rods, including incredible laminated wood big game trolling rods.

For part of the time I'll be staying with a nephew at Plymough who happens to be a CCC freak. :) So I'll probably loose a few more lures down at the Canal for old times sake. In today's currency I\'ve probably left $1,000.00 at the bottom there.

My big brother first took me to the Canal and Nauset, which we walked, in circa 1955; casting 10 foot tonkin cane rods with Squidders w/36 pound braided nylon squidding line.

I'll check in again before I saddle up in the morning.

Still here, and not expecting to *check out* for the next 25 - 35 years at least.

I'm already 65 with two open heart surgeries. Latest and final one eight months back. Fixed everything cardiac with a new aortic valve, a repaired mitral and a Cox - Maze III to permanently fix the chronic AFib and Flutter I had, and I do not recall ever having felt better! All I have to watch out for now is when I'm crossing the street and not to get caught in a cross fire.

I can't tell you how great it feels to be able to punch out a good cast on a big surf rig again. I'm throwing tin on the shores of Lake Huron and may have started a fishing trend up this way. I'm planning on taking up *residence* along the outer Cape beaches this September - October

Did I ever say that I really like these emoticons?
