Why cant we start a new fourum/topic for the off shore fisherman. This would be a fresh topic and most of us could probably pick up on a few things or pass some stuff on. I spend alot of time on other sites picking up on a ton of west coast tricks. Tackle is always a big issue out west. Those guys do YFT(huge)on stand up with tricked out TLD 25'/30's and Penn 16's. This is un heard of around here. I had two of my TLD's tricked out and now I leave my 50's at home. Saved some $$$ and learned how use my reel accordingly. Now I use a mutch lighter setup on fish I once used 50's for. Any way if it was'nt for that off shore fishing forum I would still be lugging my 50's and 80's around. FOR OFF SHORE AND ONLY OFF SHORE

To the powers that be,

I second that emotion. Mike, I too learned and liked the west coast traditions. All I use now are 5 TLDs and 2 Penn 15KGs all rigged with 50lb Mamoi and 150 lb wind-on leaders

Offshore Forum,hmm...
That sounds like a great idea.This can open a whole new world of fishing to many people.I myself have spoken to alot of people on this site from selling offshore tackle and there are alot of them with many questions on the offshore game.I have helped a bunch of people already but am no expert,in fact I learn things everytime I talk to someone thats been doing it longer than me or just different.I've taken advantage of a few offshore seminars over the years and I think its great when these guys are willing to share some of their knowledge and techniques with us.Mike,this is a great idea and I hope they do something with it.

Totally agree. The tackle used on the west coast is a lot more sophisticated than the gear we use here.

My "heavy" reel is a tricked out TLD30 with 80# spectra, a 1-piece frame, oversized drag plate and ABEC 7 bearings. Spins like a top, is compact and light, fishes 80# with no problem; one of my favorite standup reels.

It is good to see a few fisherman have replied to this topic. Setting this up would need the attention of the "webmaster" and the staff at Noreast. However I would be wiiling to post on the off shore topic often. I guess the first topic should be shark fishing and BFT fishing because these fisheries are the first oppertunities we have. Hopefully we will see a BFT fishery this comming season. I have no problem sharing #'s or catch info. It has always been comforting to know when I sail beyond the 25 - 30 fathom lines there is someone sailing ahead of or in trail of me. Pairing up boats. There is an article in the Big Game Fishing Journal, Sept./Oct issue that Tred Barta wrote that covers NY/NJ BFT fishing. All may not agree with Tred but this article defenitely has some good info. Anyway lets do it!!! Capt. Mike

I would really enjoy an off shore forum. Every time I make the trip I learn something new, see something new, or have questions I need an answer for.It would be nice to share experiences, problems and find better ways of hooking up out there......Lets do it!!!!!

Hey guys,

I am new to the offshore scene and I would benfit tremendously from your knowledge. BUT, isn't all offshore fishing done from a boat? Why don't you guys feel free to share your thoughts/knowlege/questions in the "Boating Angler" forum? Too many forums isn't good either.
