    I enjoyed a fishing trip 05/02/18, with David Heath, on the Chesapeake Bay. We met at 6:45am and headed south on Rt. 97 toward West River where Dave keeps his boat, a nice 24' Sailfish boat. We started cruising on the Bay at 8:15am toward the first structure. A small striper was caught there so...

    I seem to be having a difficult time this year and I see that lots are catching in the places I fish. I know my tackle setup is right so, is my herring just too big? I've been using the smallest ones I can find yet still not getting any runs. Any suggestions from those doing well this year?

    Hi guys I plan on building my first concept guide rod using fuji Ks. I've done some research but am still a bit unsure on exactly what size guides/how many I should be using for the running guides. The rod will be a 10' surf rod rated 1-4oz built for a van staal 150. I plan on starting around...

    Hi guys, I've been looking for a center console boat, but have had no luck. I've been looking for about 2 months now and just can't find one in the size I think I need. I want to be able to take it to the sound in the summer. I have been pretty stuck on 20'-22' for traveling and trailering...

    Hi all, I recently purchased a Tsunami Airwave Surf Rod, 8'0" MH (12-20lb, 3/4-3oz), and ordered a Penn Sargus SG5000 to pair it with. The reel is REALLY nice, solid, and seems very smooth (but, I haven't taken it out yet). However, I'm not too happy with the weight of it. It feels like it...

  14. Saltwater Tackle Shop
    I live on the west coast, but people here don't take spinning reels in the ocean very seriously so asking for advice always turns into a conventional vs. spinning reel debate. I'm wondering if an 8000 size spinning reel should be adequate for tuna, white seabass, and other fish up to 50 lbs...

    I am new to surf fishing and this morning I saw a school of stripers chasing bait. I tried to cast out there but fell very short. My set up is a 9' South bend rod with a hurricane spinning reel ($25 well spent) and was maxing about 50'. I was very short of casting past the breakers (which are...
  18. Stripers 101 - The Beginners clinic.
    Can someone please help? I would would like to know if the bigger the lure the bigger the fish that will possibly go after it? My rod is rated at 3-6oz, will using a 2-1/2 lure affect throwing distance(not the best caster to start)? Just started surf fishing this past Oct, already trying to make...

    Hey guys i recently purchased my first van staal and im about to buy my rod for it but im stuck on what size i should buy. Im buying a St. Croix mojo surf. I know the vs200 is best rated for 9'-10' but i cant settle on either. Maybe a push in either direction will get me to pull the trigger...
  20. Stripers 101 - The Beginners clinic.
    This must sound like such a beginners question, but how does one figure out what size to buy the different components of a setup? I read up on here, wrote a list of different stuff to buy, hooks, swivel barrels, etc, went to Dicks' and was overwhelmed with the stuff that everything comes in...
