  2. Hey guys...I am about to go on a another trip, but I took a couple people out last night and we caught something amazing. By far my most memorable fish catch of all time. Here is a teaser, a full report will come tomorrow when I have gotten some rest!: Anyone want to guess what this is? Ben
  3. Well got back from oc and had a great time met alot of people turned 15 and im down there i decided well i dont love my rod and reel. So thought i might as you guys. I would like a rod that can cast alot of weight like 8+oz. and im lookin for a reel that will hold like 300 yards of 20lb test. It can be casting or spinning and i would like the rod and reel to be under $250. Oh and a 2 peice rod is neccesary because i obviously travel so thanks. This is question number 1 after the 2010 oc trip.
  4. I've asked around and I'm not quite sure what kind of skate this is. People have ideas but nobodys sure. Anyone know? I've heard so far it was two different types by two different people I was hoping to find someone who sees them on a regular basis and would know for sure

  6. OK every one for those of you that don't know what the Spring Fling is, here's a brief run down several years ago when this site was young a hand full of us here on Atlantic Anglers got together to do some fishing and just hang out and have a cook out on Assateague island for the day. As some will remember the first year was a little wet but others were very nice. The reason for this thread is to try and nail down a date for the Fling it will be held in May the questions the need to be answered are to have a one day or two day Fling so people will have a better change to come so the dates that I'm suggestion are. 1. Saturday May 22 2. Friday May 21 and 22 3.Saturday May 29 4.Friday May 28 and 29 This thread will run for the next month or so and then others will follow with more information.
  7. Hey guy, I've been wanting to add to my bait selection and Im thinkink this spring run may be the best time. Typically I use Bunker or BW's for fishing the DE surf. I have heard of people using Clams, Chab, etc... I would like to know by you die hards what baits you feel work best on the DE Surf... I would also like to know who you rig it. Are you using a fishfinded rig or something else. Thanks
  8. We always wonder how the people fishing at various points in the city do, and now we know that there are some huge fish biting off the shores. Reader Ryan Eugene Kelley sent us this anecdote and photographs from his friend, Rodney Calhoun: Bed Stuy resident Percy, seen here riding a Queens bound G train to Bedford Nostrand, battled his giant 43 lb striped bass all morning. Wilson caught the giant fish behind a school in Far Rockaway using clams for bait. "They're smart you see, all morning they were just sucking the bait, not really striking it you know". But eventually Wilson got the strike he'd been looking for, and now he and his family will be eating striped bass for weeks to come. "I'm gonna fillet it up soon as I get home, then I'm gonna take a nap, that fish wore me out."
  9. I was just wondering if anyone fishes around sandyhook from a kayak. I just bought one and was interested in any advice on where is good to put in at and where most people fish without getting knocked around too bad by other boat wakes and rough water.
  10. I have had a few people ask me how I catch grass shrimp. What I use is a simple net (see image below) and scoop along the marsh, pilings and rocks. I hope this helps.
  11. Today was the Great Bridge Fisherman Association's First Annual Fishing Flea Market in Chesapeake Virginia. I had some time this morning so I made the hour drive to check it out. It was well worth the drive. There were over 70 tables with anything from brand new to beat up, overall I would say the majority of every thing being sold was in primo shape. The selection was overwhelming and I felt I was I at the State Fair only better. There was fresh and sallt water fishing gear, boats, fishing clubs and food. There was also a lot great people from all over the area looking for a deal. I met a lot of people that I have seen on the water but not in person. Every one was eager and excited at the prospect of Spring and a great fishing season. This was a first class event put on by a first class fishing club and I am confident they will make this an annual event. Here are some picture I took today. Thanks for the cup Mark!

    I just wanted to remind people about the Deleware Mobile Surf Fisherman, and that its important for us, as anglers and beach rats who like to fish to join. I joined earlier this year.....and I'm from MD. I may never make it to a meeting or function....but I feel its my obligation as a frequent user of the DE beaches for surf fishing. What a priveledge! Morty has more info (finnaddict), but its a small fee to register(i think 25 bucks first time), and its worthile to do. You get a cool license plate that says your one of the brotherhood. I was just sittin here remembering this past year....when we are catchin sharks on the beach during the 3 R's...which is an un-guarded Fishing Beach...and someone gets the rangers to try to kick us off. Of course the rangers didn't.....It actually happened numerous times. I think...if we, as fisherman, dont have a united voice...they'd take beach access from us....find some new insect or bird to protect and close the beach....or whatever. Anyway, there is a link Morty posted a while back.....Im hopin he'll read this and add it so others can join Deleware Mobile Surf fisherman... ...waitin for the spring migration......
  13. Lady Pamela II Sportfishing Charters Fort Lauderdale, Florida Fort Lauderdale Fishing - Deep Sea Fishing Charters Ft Lauderdale - Lady Pamela 2 954-761-8045 February 23, 2010 Jim, David, Jesse and three others joined the Lady Pamela II for a shared fishing charter in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. With six different people on board, everybody wants to do something different, so that was our plan. We started with trolling gear in the water, catching King Mackerel and Bonito fish. Then we relocated with live bait looking for a Shark bite and ended up fighting a Warsaw Grouper. Our last pit stop was to a wreck with a live Bonito and a Barracuda ate. What a day. Tight Lines!

  14. to prove people wrong that one is able to catch a huge rockfish off the beach. Everyone i talk to thinks i am crazy for thinking that it's possible to catch a rockfish off the beach... i think this is the year i'm going to put alot of time into proving them wrong, even though i might have to drive 160 miles to do it... this is my year....hopefully....hopefully...
  15. Had a great time today at the Bull Island Anglers Club lead pouring party at Craig’s House here in Poquoson, Virginia. Had a good turnout with people coming and going through out the day. Everyone either brought scrap lead or molds. There was more than enough to go around, I arrived with about 30 lbs of big pieces of lead and left a good variety of inline, egg, and pyramid sinkers. A couple of guys made up a bunch of lead heads as well. We even had some excitment when someone accidenty threw some old lead in the pot that must of been damp and we had a nice lead explosion that covered half us. Luckily no one was hurt. Of course most of the conversation was about fishing and we are all eagerly waiting for spring. When it does come we will all be ready with our fresh buckets of sinkers! Here are a couple of pictures from today.
  16. when i first got on the site, i would rush home to see what was happening in out fishing holes,and our great beachs, the site was great for us local fishermen , but thats all changed now i even hate to get on the site,iam a believer of the old saying ( IF IT ANIT BROKEN DONT FIX IT) to many changes and to much about other place and old post that stays on for yrs. Sorry for being hard on the site but just thought it was time to say something, i know few other people have the same feelings as i do but just dont want to say any thing to sam, but if you dont tell him how you feel them he dont know to fix it or maybe made it better. old time fishermen P.S. HOPE WE GET THE GOOD SITE BACK
  17. I have a 135 Optimax on my mako. Recently i tried to get out for some fishing and my motor wouldnt start. My battery was good, i couldnt find any fuses that had gone bad, and gas was getting to the fuel filter by the motor. Does anyone know if there is a fuel pump on the motor separate from the one in the tank that would feed the injectors? If so this may be the cause of the lack of feul. It would run if i put gas into the throttle body , but as much as i cranked it over she never flooded. None of us ever smelled gas. Ive had a few people tell me that fuel pumps have been a problem with those particular engines. My closest warranty authorized mechanic is near Pocomoke MD at Thornes Marine. Has anyone ever had any dealings with them? Thanks in advance for any input. On another note i am hearing of 50-60lber's being caught near bouy 18,19, and of course the high rise. I cant get' em so good luck! Doug
  18. Tog time again , With the closing of commercial crabbing where do I get bait ? Is it clam time or will there still be people salling out of state crabs ? The weather sure has been keeping the fish safe
  19. Well, did the Lesner shuffle last night! About 16-18 people in line bombing 2oz cannonball jigs with salt water assasin's or zooms to the channel. Slow, but steady bite from 5pm-7pm with fish in the 18-24" range. I picked off an 18" and 19.5" and kept the larger one to eat this morning with my son for Brunch before the Turkey feast! Nice to get out and get an early season rock for once!
  20. The following is an actual question given on University of Arizona chemistry mid term. The answer by one student was so 'profound' that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well: Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)? Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant. One student, however, wrote the following: First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. There fore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added. This gives two possibilities: 1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose. 2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over. So which is it? If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, 'It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you,' and take into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number two must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is e xothermic and has already frozen over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct..... ...leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting 'Oh my God.' ------------------------------------------------------------------------- THIS STUDENT RECEIVED AN A+.
  21. I was at the west <acronym title="Ocean City">OC</acronym> ramp on Sunday and talked to a guy who said he had notified DNR after seeing people on top of the south jetty keeping undersized fish. A little while later, here comes the boat with the suspects, about 10 of them. DNR jumps out on them at the ramp and a DNR boat pulls in behind them. After checking things over, out comes the citation books. Next thing you know, DNR takes most of them and the boat away, presumably to the DNR office. A couple of their cohorts had driven into the lot just before the poachers arrived-I'm guessing they were there perhaps to quickly spirit away the fish while the rest of them pulled and secured the boat. Not this time, boys... Great job, DNR!
  22. As we were leaving Assateague yesterday a gentleman stopped us at the pumps and asked us if we would answer a few survey questions. He identified the company he was with (which I don't remember the name of) and said the information was being collected for NOAA. I asked a few questions and he assured us the information was not to be used for setting limits or minimum sizes. The questions included what state/county we lived in; how many days last year we saltwater fished; how many days in the last two months; had we ever bought a new vehicle specifically for fishing/hunting; had we caught anything; what were we fishing for. I didn't think anything of it until tonight when we were at the GMP meeting I asked a few people if they had seen him or knew what the information was being collected for. The park service lady who was listening asked me to hold on a moment and grabbed a gentleman and asked me to repeat myself. He said they are to have permission and they were not aware that he was there. So.. did anyone else get stopped? and if so, did you happen to get any information. I have the name and email of the park service employee I talked to - he said if they email or send me anything to forward it on to him so he can look into it - he seemed genuinely concerned.

  24. Kayaking bait out from the beach for shark, I have noticed that if the conditions are not perfect my bait tends to drift with an 8oz weight on a fish finder rig. Can anyone share some ideas for heavier weights to keep the bait in one area? I have heard that some people in Fla. use bricks tied to the hook with 20lb test. Any feedback/pictures would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  25. I have read many reports on people kayaking their bait from the shore and then waiting for the big catch. How far do you kayak the bait out from the shore? First I guess, am I misunderstanding that people actually go out via a kayak and drop bait? Lastly, if I just launch my line from the shore, what size weight should I use to ensure I have a possibility of watching the pole move, probably due to wave action. Any information will help, oh and it will be from OC in Sep.
