  1. Cape Cod Canal
    Hi - I need to upgrade my surf casting rod this year and was planning to use it in the Canal. I'll be using stickbaits and topwater lures most of the time. Anyone have thoughts on the Okuma Cedros CSX-S-1102MH. Specs: -long for getting distance, 11 feet -light, weighs ~13 oz -line rating is...
  2. Maine
    Somewhat interesting read. Leaves me basically unaffected as a lure guy. I don't think I have many/any lures with more than 2 trebles. When the rare occasion arose where I used bait, I had a circle hook anyway. I haven't read into the study at the address linked to in this pdf file yet...
  3. Surfcasting Central
    Hey guys Any thoughts about using Berkley Gulp Saltwater Eel when surfcasting? Which sinker do you recommend using with that? Thanks
  4. Massachusetts
    couple things that have been on my mind lately, hoping some folks here could provide a little insight. apologize in advance if my questions are stupid. 1. when surf-casting live eels as night...does anyone ever use an attractor? some sort of spinner maybe 2-4" above eel's head? it just...

    Judging by the pictures you guys are putting up in the upper Hudson anglers club and the Hudson river forum it appears to be shaping up as a phenomenal year.

  9. Saltwater Tackle Shop
    I am in the market to buy a new reel and was offered a used Shimano Spheros 5000 in pretty good condition for $60. I'm willing to pay al little more ($80) but have heard pretty good things about this reel. Any thoughts?
  10. Saltwater Tackle Shop
    A great show, nothing but salt water unlike the other big shows that are mostly hunting guides and lodges with the occasion saltwater oriented booth tossed in. I had a blast, everyone was there. Wasn't 5 feet from my car when I ran into my friend Matt, aka Chumbucket. Once we got in Chum and I...
  11. The Sports Bar
    Matt Hassleback said some of his teamates were writing journals and expressing their feelings, things of that nature while documenting the last two weeks. Though it wasn't for him though. HUH? WTF? Is that a Seattle thing? or a generational thing. Come on. This is football not freaking...
  12. Tackle Evaluation & Product review
    Picked up a SERIES ONE ROD last friday for the winter tailrace season and this rod is LIGHT! I'd say one of the lighter rods in the $80-100 range. the rod feels great, fishes even better. It's eays to cast jsut as long as you have a little weight to throw and it's very manageable for a heavy...
  13. The Striper Forum
    Well, I think this just about does it for me. I have gotten most of the gear out of the car.....tackle boxes, Battles Boxes, Surf Bags, rods N reels, etc. have all been taken in. But ofcourse I did find it very painful, as usual, so there is still one 7' St. Croix Tidemaster in there with a box...
