  1. Stripers on the Fly
    After 20+ years of being a trout nut, I am starting to fish for all species. I have decided to start with surf casting for mainly Stripers but I will take whatever I can get at this point. I am looking for some help with fly selection. I have accumulated lots of materials in 20 years so I feel I...

    Went to the RISAA show today and they have the Raptor dry top for $225 and I really like it. Anyone have any opinions on this top for surfcasting as well as future yak fishing? Thank you. Alex
  4. Shorebound - Surf Beginners
    Hope you all had a great christmas. I have an idea. I recently got a hold of a fiberglass surf blank. It started as an 11' 4" however, I've since reduced it to 9'. My thinking is for space savings on jetties, the nine footer takes up less real estate. It only weighed 11 oz when it was...

    I have been very fortunate this year. A decent job and a healthy family have allowed me to enjoy some fishing, and the holidays have brought upgrades into my gear locker. icon_santa.gifthumbsup.gif I now have a couple of nice Shimano rod and reel combos that I will be spooling up. I'm...
  8. Tackle Evaluation & Product review
    Well after some research and insight from others it looks like I am not able to get the Abu Garcia 7001 Big Game with the 5.3 gears. I am still set on having a lefty so it looks like my choices are down to the Abu Garcia 7001 red series with one stainless bearing and 4:1 gears or the Penn 321...
  9. The Striper Forum
    well, I'm not too knowledgeable when it comes to Striper fishing, YET ;P But i do know that where I do go to try my hand at them there are a ton of Peanut bunker. I saw these lures with about 5 minutes left sitting at $6 on Ebay (for the Lot of 3) it also is supposed to be a rare color/make...

  11. The Wiper Room
    Hey Guys, I live in the Midwest and would like to get some opinions on if a fish I caught was a hybrid or striper. Both hybrids and stripers reside in this tailwater. I released the fish, so, in the long run it doesn't really matter. But, if it was a hybrid it was possibly a new world record...
  12. Reels and Reel Maintenance
    I just had the oppurtunity to use an Avet reel on a boat trip. i really liked it..... whats the opinions on these reels? I was thinking of getting an all around reel to use on the boat, when I go for fluke/stripers/blues/blackfish any suggestions?
  13. Saltwater Tackle Shop
    Relatively new to the forum and I've been lurking trying to get as much of an education as I can before asking dumb questions. I started surf fishing last year and had a blast, not much to show for it as far as keepers go, but had fun with it. I started with a 9' Ande surf rod and a Penn 550ss...

  17. Boat repair issues & Shop Maintenance
    Hi guys, I'm looking at buying a used boat that has a 2003 225 Evinrude Ficht engine. I don't know much about these motors so I was hoping to hear oppinions. I recall hearing that early Fichts had reliability issues, were these issues resolved? Are these motors reliable (if well maintained)...

    Looking for a baitrunner type surf spinning reel. Opinions on how this reel compares to the Shimano Baitrunners in both there ability to take abuse and long-distance casting capabilities. Thanks, Tony
  19. Saltwater Tackle Shop
    Any thoughts opinions out there regarding using a sliding sinker/fishfinder rig vs. a rig with the weight tied to the line for using bait from the shore? I fish the Hudson River spring run, bloods, chunk herring, hopefully live herring this year. Thanks in advance for the feedback!
