    Ridiculous fish man, congrats. There are guys that write for half a dozen fishing magazines that donít have a fifty from the surf.

    Also fished a lot this season. Average size was way up from previous years, not sure if thatís the slot limit working or if Iíve learned a couple things. PB 48íí but probably not over 40lbs

    Got my first False Albacore in Late September in Narragansett. I am recovering from Albie feveró itís so visual, and challenging, and when you finally connect they just rip drag. This one fell for a topwater plug in the middle of a striper blitz.

ID:	436871Pic doesnít do it much justice, we were trying to rush and get her back in and it was kinda a tough spot to fumble around with a wet/foggy camera case. Got the tape on her and quick boga to weigh. 53Ē 54#. My only tap of the night hit a blurple swarter first cast after switching. Took solid 15 mins to get her in, assisted by a couple waves. Took as long to revive- knew she was ok as she kept a decent lock on my thumb and was moving the head.

    This one is a rando pic of a hook that a monster slipped out of. Got it to the rock once, grabbed the leader and it took off. Got it back again within sight, it shook and turned and bent all 3 hooks on a vmc 4x treble. Looked upper 40# with a ton of girth. Click image for larger version.

    Random 40# I had still in the reel. Got to a spot around 1:30am, dude was there packing up. Said he hadnít got a hit. That fish hit my first cast after he left. Caught 6 fish on 10 casts, all over 25#

    The pic is kinda perfect though.

    That 4X VMC is as worked as Iíve ever seen one. Must have been a beast. Do you think they arenít as strong as they used to be? This guy I know who fishes hard seems to think that. Glide bait? I need to get some confidence with those.

    Guess I gotta get some Swarters too.

    Another couple pics of my best from the season, ~6pm in the middle of the summer. Got cartwheeled by a wave but held on to the fish as it still needed reviving.

    The blurple swarter was a legit all star this summer. Dives a bit deeper than stated (down to 24") but its legit at night.

    All 4 hooks on the VMC- 2 of them completely opened up and the other side bent in, toward the same direction. I've heard the VMC- even the 4x- have become a bit brittle lately. Many recommend the Mustad 5/0 or thereabouts.

    Lots of glide baits once late august hits. Also had a lot of success with larger Dannys during mid summer when larger pogies were all over the south shore.

    I posted these in the shitty picture thread, but thatís mostly fly/freshwater discussion. These were from back in July. Not quite New England, but damn close. Caught on circle hooks with live porgies.

    Good to know about the Swarter, Tomoís Tackle just started carrying them. I like everything Iíve used from Joebaggs, got my first Albie on one of his Peanut Resin jigs.

    I have some of the Mustad 5x and theyíre a nice hook thatís pretty cheap. They run about ~1.75x larger than the same size VMC 4x hooks and theyíre a lot heavier even when theyíre the same physical size. I can only use them on select plugs without affecting the action or float. Havenít tried the new BKK or Tsunami Saltx hooks but theyíre expensive. The Saltx are reportedly really light. Both are strong Iím sure.

    Word. I got a bunch of Dannys and Gliders that Iíve gotta get more practice and confidence with. Thanks man.

    This thread reminds me that I confied a couple stripers with a ton of herbs. It's sitting in my fridge in a clasp sealed jar. I ... should probably pull that out and check on it. It's been, um, 6 months. Um, there's a thread for that, I know. I'll breach both of them.

    Thatís my uncle (and his boat). Iím on the left. Funny you noticed the hat but not the logo on my shirtÖ which I thought wouldíve been more recognizable to this crowd.
