Speaking about the price of lead,have you guys looked at the new environmentally friendly non lead sinkers?

Made of iron and they're degradable in water, not sure thats such a good idea....anyone used them?

They suck... twice the size of lead of the same weight, hard to hold bottom in a running tide due to the mass that they represent... and they leave rusty, nasty stains in your tackle box. unfortunatly, they, or a simular substitute are the future, New Hampshire has allready banned the use of lead in fresh water for sinkers less than an ounce.. and there has been talk for years now about banning it in the sea... it's only a matter of time...

An aside note.
Some of the soft plastic makers are looking for a viable but pliable biodegradable alternative to the current resin soft plastics.

These weights made in the UK - looked interesting but nothing over two ounces yet as far as I know.

Great thread!
I've been living in the Berkshires the past 8 years and am SO glad to be back on Long Island again.
I just brought my reel in for new monofiliment and some service and can't wait to hit the beach again!

Hey guys. Just joined. This is the first thread I've read and I'm already quite impressed. I've been a fisherman my whole life, but after moving 500 miles, I'm just getting back into surf casting for the first time in 20 years. This thread was outstanding and I can't wait to probe the rest of the forum.

Well I like beer and bait, but no lawn chair for me. I prefer the slippery jettys and wish I had those spiked sandals on many occasions walking back to shore or the few times we had to land a big fella with no net... Got many battle wounds from the jagged rocks... OUCH!!!

Jetties without Korkers or some other type of spiked footwear is a major injury waiting to happen - not a possible injury, a definite injury. It's only a matter of time.

I don't go on slippery rocks without 'em. Or at least make your own, with hex head skrews epoxied into soles of boots.

New Guy---->Thanks for the Thread! This is what I've been looking for! I just needed some basic info on tackle for Striper fishing. I Just bought a nice 21' Trophy boat from a bud and I am trying to rig up for some Striper fishing. I really have no knowledge of how to fish for them. I have been reading local articles and have visited several websites doing a little research. The tackle I have now is all geared for small ponds or local reservoirs. The boat was to good a deal to pass up and I got tired of fishing from the shore. I wanted more action decided to start with Stripers. I know I have a lot to learn but I'm willing to put in the time. In closing I would like to ask a question. I live in California and was curious to know what the major differences in Striper fishing on the east coast vs. the west coast? Thanks again!
