  1. Great report! What were you using for bait?
  2. I am headed to <ACRONYM title="Assateague Island">AI</ACRONYM> this Friday evening. I just moved back into the area after spending last summer here. From the sound of it, it sounds like the toothy ones aren't here yet. What should I be going for Stripper and Drum? Will anyone else be up there on Friday? What off-road pass will I need and where is the best place to buy it? Where is the best place to get bait, if I am coming from the DC area? I will probably get there around 10:30 or 11:00 and fish all night. Let me know if you want to meet up. Thanks guys, this place is great.
  3. I am thinking of pulling the all nighter again tomorrow. Does anyone know how this storm will affect the conditions for sharking that evening? I know the storm should be clear, but will the water be significantly cooler, warmer, are remain about the same? Any other conditions that might change that would affect the bite? Thanks.
  4. Great catch! What bait were you using? About how far out was it?
  5. I was out there last night and didn't have any luck. How did you do?
  6. I went out to AI last night and fished from a different location than I did a couple of weeks ago. I used the same rigs and techniques that helped catch some shark on the previous trip. No luck last night. Really was hoping to land a shark but walked away with mosquito bites! I guess that is fishing. How much does the change in wind and water temp affect the bite?
  7. Here is a picture. Again, I can't say enough about this forum and the things I have learned here in such a short span of time. Thanks a million!!
  8. I just want to report on my first time. We were able to land two sharks a large one and a small one. We also were able to release them just fine, and no one (or shark) got hurt. After some time, some other fish starting eating our bait. Any idea what it could be? Next time I go I will definitely throw different rigs out there to try and catch more fish other than the sharks we caught. Also we stopped by Anglers on our way out there and picked up some bait, "LY" (sp?) is what they recommended. Next time I plan on using a variety of baits, any other suggestions? Thanks for all the help, this forum has been highly informative.
  9. Thanks, that is what I have been doing all morning. Don't tell my boss.
  10. First off, great site here guys. Andrew K recommended that I check this place out. There is a wealth of information here that I am just trying to soak up. I will be heading our is several buddies to AI this weekend to try and hook some sharks, or anything else that bites. Is anyone heading up there this weekend, we would appreciate any tips on how to handle these guys. Also any tips you may have regarding rigs and baits would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for the help, hopefully come monday we will be posting some pics.
