  1. Me and my fishin partner will be down for the old inlet tourney next weekend. If anybody is around the fridahy bfore....and you see a silver honda ridgeline on da beach...stop by and have a drink..or just say hi!!! ~Mark
  2. Would love to catch a Hammer from the surf.....nice to see AAnglers is still active....I haven't logged onto it at least a year!!
  3. Night fishing is a wonderful time to target these critters as well...privacy and no swimmers at that time, and casting works wonderfully due to the steep drop / no secondary bar. theres also quite a rush yakkin our baits in the dark.....especially after you get past the breakers..a little freaky...but thats not for everybody and safety is key....
  4. Whatever we do....were on the same side, and need to keep fighting for our rights...and use discretion when targeting sharks...im gonna have a great season....and not let this stuff bring me down....but I will use my noggin when i'm out there.
  5. How were you losing the bait? Was it gettin bit off...or was it coming off when you cast? there have been many threads with the cutting up and hooking of bunka.....ill try to find one
  6. Myself and a few buddies will be down there that night to try our luck...so i ll keep an eye out for your red jeep. Won't be there till about 8:00 or so....but ill keep ya posted.....one of us should catch!!!!
  7. Coop gave me my first surfishin tips years ago when I met him on the beach...he's a barometer for when fish are around...and an ambassadeur of the beach..as are a lot of others on this and other forums. By this weekend some bass willbe caught....ill be there for it!!
  8. Im going to try to get down there real soon.....this weekend is looking good.
  9. Where was that caught?? Down south somewhere. Thats a pretty freaky picture with that bite out of the fish. Doesn't sur[rise me however.
  10. Hey Hulkster. I know there was some damage to Assateague...but not sure about DE Seashore. Maybe Morty or one of the locals will know....but hopefully its open. I checked the DE Seashore Ppark website and didn't see anything posted about it. ...
  11. Id agree. fill those reels with mono ...30 to 40 lb., add a heavy shock leader of over 100 lbs., maybe 30 feet or so, then add a wire leader of maybe 10 to 15 feet. Braid is great...but its expensive . will cut the crap out of you when handling a big fish, and gets in terrible knots when a shark rolls in the wash....
  12. Im pretty sure all the beaches will be closed down...and pretty darn dangerous. Would suggest you make some other plans for the weekend.....itll be nasty
  13. Yeah...you know the statistics and habits of a Bull....they are there.....its only a matter of time before "incidents" occur like this one...whether with fisherman or bathers. Thats a serious critter.....Is there any kind of protection on Bull Sharks??
  14. When you mentioned line replacement. it made me think...at Angler's..just before you cross the bay bridge heading east...that have spool of 3000 yd suffix at extrreme clearing prices. $24.94 for most. That was a month ago...but they may still have inventory. Its a steal for what I believe is the best mono....FYI if any yall come from across the bridge.
  15. thanks.appreciate it. ill know to check that in the future,
  16. Ive heard there will be some rough surf this weekend due to offshore Hurricanes. It was showing 4 to 5 foot seas on the Web. Any input on how this will affect surf fishing, kayaking out baits??Thanks.
  17. Thats fairly infuriating. Thanks for the info....id like to fin some of those fisherman who do such a thing....
  18. Is that Ban gonna be roll on...or the spray kind?? So what does someone want fins and jaws for?? The fins are put in soup?? Aphrodisiakkkkk?? Seriously, who would buy those things? Possibly restaurants? wouldn't they have to be sold in another country or the Black market? Lot of questions...but i'd agree that it was done from a boat and dropped overboard....if the rumors are accurate...
  19. If thats the case...and they were finned and the jaws cut out....I would say that someone needs to call a meeting with the authorities....because that kind of garbage isn't from us...or anyone I'd associate with. I live a few hours away from the beach, but Id be glad to attend any meeting that is set up...or contribute in any way. Finned and jaws removed...thats utterly ridiculous.....
  20. If you go to the Atlantic Anglers Delaware home page....scroll down about 10 or 15 lines and there is a Rehobeth Bay / IRI fishing forum....has some good info for ya. Look through it and if you have any questions....ask those guys.
  21. Well..ive mised the whole summer of fishin...too busy. Ill be tryin to get down soon....and especially for the fall run. Looks like some big Bull Sharks have appeared recently...in DE and AI. Wonder what the Shark toourney will produce this weekend??
  22. Hulk...top and bottom and FFinder rigs are not the best at IRI...Im speaking about fishing from the rocks here. Drifting or casting artificials / live bait is the way to go at the inlet...there are too many hang ups and massive currents to fish bottom rigs from the rocks. However, Tog fishermen fish the rocks using sand fleas and crabs very effectively...its finesse fishing for sure. I use jigs, swim baits, eels / artificial eels...etc...all fished using the current, with varying weights to keep the bait where you want it....then reel it in quickly. Some swear drifting sand fleas is the ticket... Surffishing275..unfortunately by June 25th the big stripers will be north of us...but there will be some year-round resident schoolie stripers still around, with a few keepers mixed in...but not the 30 and 40 inchers that are around now. There will be bluefish, croaker, kingfish, etc...However, Shark fishing from the beach will be just getting into high gear...so keep watching the posts.....I love me some shark fishin.....
