Happy Veteran's Day

Ah,its nice to get up at 4 am….to go fishing instead of work. Meeting our Rod Guru Lou Caruso to do some testing and video this morning. Working with Lou is always a pleasure. Any of you guys need rod built or repaired this winter ,you should talk to Lou. Even if it’s just for advice. I have grown to respect his thoughts and ideas very much over the years, he knows his stuff and his prices are really reasonable. You can check him out at http://louscustomrods.com/

STRIPERTHON 2010 is over, done ,caput. We are still waiting on a Penn Torque 5 bailess that we ordered from Penn. So far, it has not arrived but then again Penn has a hard time filling all the backorders. But be assured that you will get it if you win, even if I have to go buy another.

I need a good full day to sit down, get the pictures organized for a vote. I just haven’t had much time with writing for upcoming issue and working on a video. If you ever have time to waste, get yourself video editing program Then , after you spend 30 hours on a 3 minute video you’ll realize why all the editors are balding and gray.

When you make a cast today, change a hook or hug your kid, remember those who perished so we can enjoy the freedom and American way of life.

Liberal, republican, tea party of independent, it doesn’t matter. Our soldiers don’t ask you what you are before they put their lives on the line for you. All they ask is that you respect what they do.

Today would be a good day to say thank you.

Shout to our boy Kevin Robinshaw, whatever part of the world he is toad and Jay Dodd from Jay’s Lure who recently returned from Africa. And every other dude or dudets out there on active or inactive duty reading Surfcaster’s Journal

We are PROUD of you and We Love Ya’

Thanks for all that you do so that our kids can sleep safely at night

•NEW• VMB150 •NEW•


The new VM150 features a changeable left- or right-hand retrieve, holds 350 yards of 30-pound braided line and can handle up to 30 pounds of drag stopping power. At $399 it’s the strongest, most affordable reel in its class. The aluminum and stainless steel construction of the VM150 create more than enough strength to tackle big and exotic fish and the precision gears and smooth drag performance make it the perfect go-to reel from boat or from shore.

    Don’t forget to say Thanks to the “old timers” on the beach that served many years ago and continue to serve our country in many different ways.
    I know of one fisherman who is a military veteran and retired from the US Army. He is a well known surf rat and a vetaran of the Surf. The man knows his stuff and catches fish like no one I’ve ever seen:
