  1. Highflyty, baits of choice are many. Could be herring, bloodworms, peeler crab, surf clams, bunker, or sand fleas. Two most typical rigs are fish finder and double dropper. As always the fresher the bait the better and rebait often.
  2. By later do you mean after you come back from fishing:icon_tongue:
  3. Magic thread, comes in white and orange. If the clams are alive and fresh they should stay on without it.
  4. Allright I can finally upload pictures. A few from last Thursday. 37", 38", and a 48" that went 45#. Also not pictured is a 19" flounder.
  5. Hulk, nothing beats fresh bait. Put your fish in whole, guts and all.
  6. only 15.9oz overall! That is incredible, I've always wanted to try out the carrot stix but have never had the chance.
  7. Sad to hear about the fish, glad it's starting to warm up a bit.
  8. I'm still getting familiar with conventionals in the surf and that is why I am going to get my next couple rods dual wrapped. Had a bad blowup with my Slosh on AI this year and just took it off and put on my Penn 850. Was back in buisness in less than a minute while I picked the braided birdnest.
  9. One advantage of a custom rod is that you could get it dual wrapped. Which means conventional or spinning so if you don't care for conventional you still have a great rod you can put the spinner back on. Just last weekend I put a nasty birdnest in my slosh, and instead of picking it out I just put my Penn 850 on and was back in action.
  10. When I was much younger we use to snag them at Chain Bridge and use them for striper and big cats.
  11. Put that in a fish tank, they are gold in about 6 months.
  12. I'll let you know after this weekend.
  13. Nice fish Morty, I put 15 hours in that spot between Fri. and Sat. I must have chummed him in.
  14. Fished Herring point yesterday from midnight till noon. Not even a knockdown, crabs were awful as I was constantly keeping busy with three rods in the water. Four skates is all I got for my trouble. Conditions were perfect with an east wind, overcast skies, and a strong current when I got there that took 8oz hurricanes to hold. Still great to be out and next weekend they better watch out.
