Hey there, just signed up this morning and been poking around a bit.

Been fishing stripers for quite a while around Boston, mostly marshes and Rivers, from the bank, when time Permitted. Schoolies on Small mouth tackle was fun as a kid and beyond.

Get in the Harbor when I can, and to the Canal more often than that.

Prefered method is the one that works on any given day. Hope to add Eel skinnin' to the repetoire this season.

Build my own rods, though not anal about it. Have some fine store bought. Though can't bring myself to throw a fly I did not tie.
Can't wait to try some lures I think should work that I have made up.

Moved from the South Shore to Somerville a while back. Gotta get out and prospect for new spots. Looking forward to that.

That's it in a NutShell.

Madoo, no stripers where you are. Here's a list of fish that inhabit your waters.....Grouper, Queenfish, Mahi Mahi (Dorrado), Longtail Tuna, Giant Trevally, Spanish Mackerel & Snapper. Sailfish can be caught between October and May. However, my guess is that you'll need a boat for most of these saltwater fish.

Shore fishing provides you with barracuda, big saltwater catfish, and various species of shark, including the Guitarfish. However, I'd be a little careful plucking its strings, it's from the shark family and looks like a cross between a skate and dogfish.

sorry i didnt see this earlier, school and baseball(im on 3 teams)has kept me off.
im andy,im 14, and live in noe calinuh(north carolina for u up north ) i was actually born in seattle washington, and lved in sandpoint idaho until i was 7. i had always fished with my grandad every once in a while, but never really got into it until my dad got a boat 2 years ago. now fishing ends up in everything i do. i live in the middle of north carolina, and the lake i live on is the only lake in the us with a self sustained striper population. promblem is, that because of this the state doesnt pay much attention to the stocks in our lake, and the stripers have almost dissapeared due to a man illegaly dynomiting and selling the fish. anyway, because the stripers dont really run till mid- winter, i focus mainly on offsore fish(60 miles off in a 21 foot center console, crazy, but pretty damn fun) because of the traditional fishing/hunting bond, i got my first shotgun the year we got the boat. its a 20 gauge, and ive killed everything from deer to turkey with it.

hey y'all
Stephen from Alabama here, although I've recently relocated to Atlanta with my wife. Throughout the course of my 23 years on this earth, I've fished mostly largemouth bass, catfish, and brim. I've made several excursions to the ocean where I've encountered some of the larger varieties of fish. I'm a graduate student studying to become an archaeologist (no I have never dug up any dinosaurs, nor found any gold), and love to do anything outdoors (biking, shooting, fishing, hiking, or swimming).

Im Jim and I live in eastern Pa. I Grew up in Staten Island NY fishing Great Kills, and NY Harbors,
and for LMB, Cats and Carp in Wolves pond, Clove and Silver Lakes.
I made the mistake of hooking into a huge striped bass one December night many moons ago near the
Verazzanno Bridge that changed my fishing forever. I've been avoiding blue fish eversince. Now its pretty much strictly stripers. I've been trying to figure them out ever since.
The web site went up before the forum around the beginning of 2004
We began with a free brave net forum then switched to the
phpBB board in March of 2004.
Here is the original board as it looked on the March 04 wayback machine
and again 7 months later in October 04
It pretty much looks like it does now.
Heres a rather embarrassing http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://...ripers247.com/
look back at the evolution of the site through my self taught web design. Despite those shortcomings it served us to this point in our development. It has been awesome in some ways and at times frustrating but through your efforts we can be pretty proud of our development to this point.
A big thanks to the veteran and founding Members for helping us get to where we are.

Aw what the heck I might as well join in here too!. I am Warren I live in Central New Hampshire. I fish for stripers when I can. I am a welder & heavy equipment mechanic by day and that keeps me busy. My friends & I fish from the Piscatiqua to Naraganset bay. Stripers, Blues & SBFT, mostly on the fly. but when that don't work, out comes the trusty Penn Slammer

The history of phpBB boards
built by James 'theFinn' Atkinson in July 2000.
Interesting story.
We use the latest version of this board.
It now has many different skins and features and mods.
More are being utilized and built daily by different programmers.

Default Re: Introduce yourself .....

Hi, my name is Kurt and my story a long one, some might say long-winded! I am 49 years old and getting ready this summer to turn 50 and was worried I haven't had time to do all that I wanted with my life. I haven't even fished in the last 4 years!!! That is really unlike me, my mother thought I might be contemplating suicide! That just isn't me though, I figure if I do it right, I might have another 25-30 years left before I get too decrepit to be able to fish. I got alot of making up to do along that front. My job is paying me O.K. enough to maybe make a couple of cheap trips across the country once in awhile to seek out some fish I've never had the priveledge to fish for. I've never fished for or caught Stripers, but have always fantasized about catching them. Another fish I would love to fish for are Redfish down south in Florida. I love to fish, but don't really care about eating them, sure some fish I would love to try, but for the most part, I'm in it for the fight. I grew up in the Midwest and fished for Largemouth Bass most of the time, which I think are pound for pound some of the best fighting fish alive today! If the Stripers are everything I know Largemouth's to be, then I will be in for an awesome fight! Most of my time in the last four years has been devoted to trying to get out of the "Rat-Race", I've made several decicions both bad and good pertaining to investments and have come out somewhat behind the 8-Ball!!! My dream is to make enough to be able to retire on and never have to worry about money again. So I may just have to worry about where I will fish next. I have redcently become involved in Solar Power for the United States, with no investment required of your own. You actually rent the equipment for the same rate you currently pay to your electric company for up to 25 years locked in!!!! If you have any questions about this, just drop me an E-Mail and I'll give you all the information you can handle.
Right now I work for the State of Washington as a traffic systems technician, and I actually love the job, but will gladly trade it for being finacially independent, that way I won't have anything holding me back from fishing all I can for the rest of my life! I am quite adept at fishing for all types of salmon, Largemouth bass, catfish, bluegill, crappie, and will love to be able to add the redfish, Stripers, bonefish, and anything else that puts up a good fight. One fish I'm just starting to learn is the Walleye, which I'm told are the most delicious fish out there today. Wondering if any of you might agree or disagree, I've never had Walleye yet, but in the next few months, that will change. I'm very personable and excited to talk to all of you and be able to call you friends, I look forward to seeing you in the forum as well as on the water, if you've read this far and aren't yet sleeping; thank you very much!!! I will definitely keep in touch and let ya'll know of my future exploits.

Kurt..............
