  1. I agree with Whaler and maybe as many items listed by name/size if you can. I know it's time consuming but the more info the better and hopefully someone will get a good deal and you not get shorted either, good luck.

    Spring striper fishing

    We fish mainly live herring on the flats but some guys do very well with chunk, only problem with chunk is catfish and eels also like it. Night crawlers may work but I think you would be fighting mostly catfish and eels again. Trolling with big stick baits on channel breaks or even in the channel will usually get you more fish but they lack in size compared to using bait.

    I've only had the Eagle Claws and have no complaints.

    Netting speeds

    We usually try to keep the fish directly at the back of the boat but if they go to the side so be it.When they are ready the person fighting the fish backs up and lifts the head up, netting head first. Never had a problem like this. Sk8man is 100% right about experience on the net, they know when the fish can be netted. One thing for sure is don't horse the fish, they tend to break line that way no matter what test.

    Open garage door?

    I don't know how old it is but some of the older ones would open if a certain frequency was used in a 2 way radio. We had that happen a few times at our station which is on a busy state road until we figured it out.
  6. X3, most of the time I run a chute copper, sometimes one off each side. One thing I do believe in is the free sliders with flutter spoons, usually Evil Eyes. You cover more of the upper part of the zone and I get a lot of steelies and later cohos with them.
  7. Meanwhile back to our original problem being Cuomo. I'll throw this out there in the fact that I just can't understand how anybody that considers themselves a sportsman would even slightly consider voting for him.
  8. I think Marc is a great all around guy and a great candidate, I'm in a boardering county from where he's from. There's two problems I see, one he's realarively young considering and not many people know him other than his area and two as stated previously, Cuomo has the NYC area in his pocket and that's a lot of votes

    I put the Helix 7 on my boat this year and very happy. I opted not to get side scan though..

    Fat guy's getting a bigger boat!

    Well thank you. A lot and I mean a lot of great guys on this site. Many years experience all around and I'm sure Pap will be here soon. Great job on that rebuild!

    Fat guy's getting a bigger boat!

    That's how it all starts, with a small boat Best of luck to you and hope to see you out next year.
  12. Low Baller I don't think you're crazy. I do that quite a few times a year just to get an extra couple of days fishing for steelhead in the river. People think I'm crazy too though.
  13. I'll throw my house, truck and boat in. Sk8man is right on, maybe a small King but from the picture I'd say Coho.

    Rescue off oak orchard !?

    I believe they will try for them all but at the very least the popular ones for the area you're in. East end 68-72 but with scanning radios should be able to pick up any. CG will also broadcast bad weather. Keep eyes to the west, if it starts to look bad a quick check for radar on a smart phone will help also. Lady O can rear her ugly head real fast if she wants too.
