Fast crurrent so was casting near the shore and this 26"er hit my white spinner bait on 4 lbs test (probably two seasons old) /ultalight gear. took me almost 90 mins to boat. Probably most fun fight of my life, must...

    I finally after four early AM appointments on the boat and about a dozen or so schoolies I pulled in my first keeper. 34inches and about 18bs, it tasted so good. I have to say feeling a fish that big hit the shad like a freight train I want more. This site has been such a great help and...

    I'm new to the site. Caught a 24" striper tonight at the Kittery Point Bridge. I was fishing for mackerel and the striper hit my Sabiki rig. A fellow fisherman helped me land it. There were mackerel jumpin' all over. Caught a bunch for bait. A good start for the season; I hope to do a lot...

    This was my sixth surf trip on the surf this fall and I finally shook off the skunk. My buddy and I fished the surf in three locations from CHSP to DSSP from 7:00 a.m until 4:30 p.m. Skates and doggies were providing all of the action until 2:00 when I saw my big rod twitching. It looked like...

    What would you guys say is your general keeper to short ratio? Also, is it likely that you will at least catch 1 bass (keeper or not) per each outing? I've been out on my boat at least 2-3 times per week going after bass for the last 3 months. Since July, we've pulled 2 keeper size fish (32...
