Striper Day 2017

Its that time of the year when after packing a considerable amount of extra pounds (17 extra pounds for me since September!) feasting on holidays cookies like bass on rain bait, our attention turns to  show season. And Striper Day is first on tap on January 14th at Hofstra University Student Activity Center (or if you went last year, same place, lol) .Yes, we turned  every rock on Long island looking for a bigger place with conference room or gym AND  large theater in close proximity of each other but we struck out. As did everyone before us so we were left with a decision, do we go back to Hofstra or not do the show at all. Due to overwhelming positive feedback we decided to proceed with Striper Day plans and its almost here. All information in this blog can be found at Striper Day official website at

We got some new vendors like Luna Custom Lures , Black Hole USA Rods, Fatty Lures, High Hook Lures, Angry Fish prints and more.

We will feature two short films this year on a gigantic screen. Here are the trailers

Stephen Gallant and Brian O’Connor are back with another installment of Plum Island Surfcasting

New this year is fly fishing feature  from Lonely Osprey Productions “Between the Lines” . Here is a trailer


We have full line up of seminars, including appearances  for the first time in NY by Dante Soriente, Dave Anderson, Al Albano and Pete Utsching. Again, full seminar schedule is at
