  1. anyone know if Bucks opened up yet? If not, thanks for the John Henry suggestion. Its not far off, and I will tell "Dude" you all said Hi.
  2. Hey all, sorry, I know I read about this is a different forum. Did Bucks open yet? If not, can anyone recommend anywhere close to it? (its my usual go to...)
  3. Anyone know what the Surf is like? I'd planned to head out Sat night thru Sun afternoon, but I'm not sure if the OSV is open, or if I have to cast over 12 foot breakers...
  4. I’d concur, since switching to circle hooks I’ve set the hook more often and lost less fish, and it’s always sitting pretty around the mouth. Real quick release… and most of all, real easy release, I can spend a moment looking and admiring my fish before release, rather than a panic’d de-hooking session,. and that's why I'm there.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
  5. This has been one of the most educational threads I've read in my short 7-8 years of surf fishing. The advanced perceptions shared by some elder anglers (and that doesn't mean older), has really given me something to think about. I am a more responsible angler because of this thread, and that deserves my gratitude. Thanks for sharing everyone. While I’ve never hurt a fish, as I start to catch bigger fish and go for bigger fish, it reminds me to keep learning as you could do something even if unintentional. Anything that promotes safety of fish, resources, and anglers sustains our current situation, which I've grown to love in my short 7-8 years out on Assateague. And yes, there are always those who wish to take away our passion, so it’s important we look at these angles and perceptions. Thanks again for all those sharing. Take care of your beach, water, and fish. Teach a kid to fish, and teach a kid to fish correctly- that’s what you’ve done for me here. (35yr old kid.) Thanks.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
  6. Hi Everyone, i am heading down in a couple days. Can anyone tell me where they sell fresh bait? and maybe what baits are best now,,.. or is anything biting in this hot weather? Thanks.
  7. I am coming down in a couple weeks and I am wondering if anyone can tell me a bit about surf fishing in myrtle beach. can you fish right in front of the hotels? Is anything biting right now...(or in 2 weeks,)
  8. Wow Dave, his teeth are wicked scary. Your almost spooling is exactly what happened to my Saturday night, about 325 of my 17lb test staight out, only I had incredibly different results. Nice Shark, its those that keep me out of night yaks.
  9. Fished Friday and Saturday, skate, 1 kingfish, an hour battle with a ray... (my there were a lot of rays this weekend. I must have seen 50 large rays just crusin the surfline...). We also had one hook up that screamed the drag straight out, played with us for an hour and a half, .. then took off straight out again. Just before spooling me - I had about 20 yards left on the reel, the line broke. I think it broke on the outer bar as I was about to get a couple hundred yards back in with the line. Possible it dove deeper and the line was rubbin in the bar out there.
  10. I went twice and got skunked, then I did some research (internet/books) as I was river small mouth fisherman orginally. My 3rd time grabbed me my 1st strike! the ugliest thing I had ever saw, a bif fat skate..... 10 minutes later a 8 in blue and then a kingfish... I was hooked,. Haven't gone out for smallmouth in 4 years now. Can't wait for some evenings on Assateague....

  12. Fished Sat and Sun, like others it was like I was feeding the lil' snappers. I couldn't keep bait on the hook for long. Caught a king and a couple 15 in blues, but mostly I feed snappers for 2 days.
