    I agree, last year the fish showed up way late, fishing was really slow. I think we are going to see warmer conditions later in the year more often. If the water temp is really warm definitely delay your trip if possible.

    stripper clip?vs basket , work in water?

    One good wave from the salt and that would be a birds nest I would think. A strong current would also create problems and it looks like to much work . Might be ok for casting off a boat.

    Never thought about that before. I used to catch them off the ledges when I was a kid using periwinkles for bait. If I recall correctly they have spines that might deter the stripers from swallowing them ? That being said they eat crabs so who knows. I'm sure someone here would know.

    What kind of drag ?

    I am gonna spend a couple hundred max. It's not gonna get a ton of abuse because of my limited fishing time.

    Eric, I remember two or three years ago the beaches were littered with juvie crabs that same color about the size of a quarter. Nice fly.

    What kind of drag ?

    I am looking to buy a new reel this spring and with all the improving technology out there I was wondering what you guys prefer for a drag system on your reels. I will be getting something with a sealed drag but would love to hear your opinions.

    Leader Choice

    That was about the most detailed desciption I have seen about the leader/tippet difference. I am sure that will clear up any confusion for a lot of folks. That was very well done !!

    Magnum's Dragon Tails

    I used them a while back when my kids used to have them as toys. They do have great action. The problem is they weren't durable, maybe these Dragon tails are a little more rugged.
