This and that

Winner of Lemire’s Plugworks  metal lip lure is anglerace@hotmail.com

The winner of the 8 1/2inch, 3 ounce mammoth Wave Jammer who guessed Lou’s favorite picture is …well, no one. Not one of you guessed that Lou favorite picture is on page 75…looks like a fine picture to me 🙂

So the plug goes back into the rotation, to be given away at another time.

Wait, its holiday season…so why not just pick another guy randomly?….Ok ,the winner of Wave Jammer is ….Zeno Hro….wait, that would be a bit weird…and unethical.

Ok ,the real winner is Ryan Chenette, the guy who says “I never win anything”

Both of you must furnish your mailing address to info@surfcastersjournal.com within 5 days or you forfeit the prize. Remember that big loot of AOK Tackle tins? The winner never stepped forward so I will give you a chance to win it again soon.

We might be fishlanthropists but we got rules…capish ? 😉


Few thoughts on last minute gift ideas. What do I want? More St Croix Legends and CTS rods would be nice…not sure if can get that passed by Da Wife


From Camp Site Sports in Huntington NY, comes the news that they are now a GoPro dealer. Now you can check out these little gems in person  and see what the hype is all about


This is from email I received from them,

Everyone should have one of these little marvels in their tackle box, on their boat, their car, their skis, their fishing rod, wherever you want to put it. The list of potential mounting spots is endless. Capture true 1080p HD video and 11Mp stills in a pocket sized, waterproof, shock proof, virtually indestructible package. We have a host of GoPro accessories in stock including many mounting options, LCD backs and spare batteries. While stocks last we are offering a free 8Mp class 10 SDHC card with each Go Pro camera purchased.

In other news, Burford Books, publisher of many surf fishing titles  have a new redesigned website. Check it out at www.burfordbooks.com

Reel Women of Fishing is a calendar that some of you might like to find under the Christmas tree…you can check it out here http://www.amazon.com/REEL-Women-Fishing-Calendar-2012/dp/B0069OOLGK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1323984640&sr=8-1


Last and definitely not least, tune in this weekend for a Commando Surfcasting Custom Bag giveaway. As soon as I come up for air I will hook you guys up. And yes, that comment about Johnny Walker was a joke…I can’t hold liquor of any kind so I don’t bother. Hell, if I drink a dozen beers in  year that is a lot..although I must say, on a warm summer night, a big juicy steak on the grill…it calls for a nice, cold Sam Adams. Its funny thing, no one i fish with drinks. We all show up at the beach, each guy with a thermos of 7/11 coffee. Then we make another pot after we drain what we brought….old men 😉

Smile for the camera

I am not a big fan of smarty-pants  who like to tell  “I-told-you-so”. Like my boss who tells me I am better off working than chasing some fish that might or might not be there (unfortunately he has been battling a 1000 this fall). So what I am about to tell you, I am doing it with mixed feeling…if for no other reason than it happened so fast…

I wrote few times over the last year that I can envision the day when a live video feed will be streamed right from the Montauk Rocks  or Cape Canal, or Cutty, or Block, or your honey hole, live onto the internet. In REAL TIME. Oh what a joy to finally be catching a fish or scratching your balls on a rock in a wetsuit, not knowing you are broadcasted live onto the internet. Hook in a hand, wiping your ass with a sock, picking bugger out of your nose, braking a rod on a cast or just gazing after that cute jogger that just ran by, all watched live by your wife and kids

The day of reckoning is here.
