  2. Stripers 101 - The Beginners clinic.
    Hi, I am new to striper fishing, and have been watching several people fish for stripers on the Cape Cod Canal in MA. It seems that they have the spool loose, so that a striper will take the bait and run with it. My question is, how loose should it be, and don't you have to "strike" the rod when...

    Hey guys, newbie here on the S.Shore of MA, have only fished fresh when I was a kid and am now starting salt. Have an old 19' bowrider boat and am planning on taking my wife and 7 yr old on our first family fishing expedition next week while we're all on vacation (staycation). We'll be staying...

    I know there have been about 1 million threads about this... But can anyone give me a quick run down on a homemade scale that you use to set drag? I figure there is someway i can do it precisely without using having someone at a store do it. Thanks, Ethan.

    Okay, before everyone starts screaming at me to do a search, I've already done that and just have one question that didn't seem to be answered on any of the threads I read. This is what I know (which ain't much): generally you set the drag to about 1/4 the breaking strength of the line (maybe...

    Hello, I've searched the site on this topic but could not find a clear answer. Just wanted to know how long do you wait before you set the hook while chunking mack or using clams. Lately I've been loosing fish using j hooks and letting the fish take out line for 3 to 5 secs and then trying to...

    I was fishing a sandy beach today that was loaded with small schoolies all afternoon. 10' spinning rod with 20# mono. All they wanted was a Kastmaster and teaser (mostly the teaser). I landed 10+ fish and probably dropped another 15 more, which bugged the hell out of me. I'm thinking the...

    I had a bigger than usual fish on early sun morning and lost him. The line snapped above the leader, so I know it wasnt the leader or knot. I have been using 20# test mono with 50# leader tied to an artificial. In this case, tied to a 12# rigged sluggo. I've lost fish before and understand...
  10. Boaters Forum
    Just bought a 17.5 ft center console and was hoping for some pics of how you all set up your boats for fishing. The boat is a hyda-sport interceptor. I'm sure some of you guys have some great set-ups with some custom ideas to make fishing easier and more productive. The boat has what looks like...

    A buddy of mine caught these the other night. Someone posted them in another thread, all photo-chopped to make them look bigger than they really were. This is to set the record straight.... :icon_stirthepot: thumbsup.gif
