Coming up this weekend, Surf Day at River's End, CT

On tap this Saturday, one of my favorite shows of the season. It’s in Old Saybrook, CT at River’s End Tackle, hosted by Pat Abate. For those of you who might not know, Pat is not only the owner of the shop but is considered by many of us who know him one of the best surfcasters of this generation. Many surfcasters from NY and NJ make a trip, catch few seminars, enjoy a bbq (on moose stew we had few years ago!). River’s End is also a place where you can have your VS reels serviced and on hand will be VS super Rep Craig Cantelmo with other factory reps. I will be there speaking on strategies for big bass. Why did they ask me, it’s a mystery. Everyone knows I catch most of my fish with the keyboard 🙂

Looking forward to seeing many old friends and meeting some SJ fans

See you there..

River’s End STRIPER SURF DAY April 2nd, 2011 10-4

It won’t be long, the first migrating schoolies will be at the wall and the long wait will be over. Until then join us in celebration of surf fishing. It’s a great day to hang out, take in a seminar and just get reacquainted with some old and new surf rats. We’ll have great speakers, demonstrations, factory reps, sales, door prizes, same lousy food and good friends.

Zeno Hromin – Strategies for Big Bass
Craig Cantelmo – Fishing the Montauk Surf

FACTORY REPS from Super Strike, Van Staal, Shimano, St.Croix, Lordship Lures, Tsunami, Aquaskinz, Northbar, Line Stretcher, Lunker City, Power Pro, Loomis and more will be here.

    Looking forward to meeting you Z!
    First time there and I can wait to scope out the shop and take in all the surfcasting awesomeness. I think I’ll leave my wallet at home haha!

    Z, will see you on Saturday at Pat’s. You are right on when you say Pat has one heck of a surf selection in the store. I attend every year and always enjoy the day.

    I dropped by once last year when visiting a friend out in CT. Nice shop and helpful when I asked about where I could wet a line for the few hours I was in the area. Would have loved to drop by this weekend, but have a prior committment. All the best, safe travels to all who are making the trip.

    My pal Billy D president of the CT Surfcasters, will be doing a demonstration table on different ways to load a Redfin. So if you want to get loaded- stop by and see Billy.

    Pat will have some new Beachmasters on the wall.

    And Donny Musso is going to be there I hear. Donny and Vito-

    You should show up just for them.

    Man this is going to be nuts…so psyched. Wasn’t willing to drop $100 driving to NJ and back with tolls/gas/admission…this is going to be the highlight of the Spring!

    I just might…explode. Surfcasting overload…I am priveleged to attend this awesome event. My surfcasting education has been pretty accelerated these past 2 yeas and seeing this day in action is going to be the icing on the cake in my winter prep for what hopes to be a terrific season. These guys are like rock stars to me. Hope Tommy makes an appearance! I’ll have to bribe him with some CT sausage and peppers lol…
