My wife and I left the Cape at the beginning of the moratorium because striper fishing was banned. But we knew everything that was going on when we were there and had a lot of friends we were in contact with. A lot of Cape regulars were selling bass at the back doors of restaurants and never stopped inspite of the moratorium. I am not the king of the striper region but, like you, I have my own opinion about who should be considered.

As I have said, I regret ever having started the thread; I asked that members let it slide down the page to discourage any further posting. If posting continued I warned, I would either lock the thread or take it down completely. I locked it. The thread is counter to striper management policies at the time of the moratorium; it is fraught with liability issues which make further discussion untenable. I deeply regret having ever started it. The only thing that can ever approach a suitable response to the mistake is to close it. Sorry.

Not trying to reopen a sore subject here, but I had a thought...
In hindsight: I think a problem with a Hall of Fame type thread is that there may only be a handful of anglers on this site that would know if someone sold during the moratorium. Guys like me read a few articles, a few books, see some reports and fish caught, then we make a nomination... I threw a couple names in the H of F thread based on my previous sentence. There are also people who may have caught lots and large, but didn't fish your area (say L.I. or N.J.) and they could be upstanding anglers, or illegal mercenaries, but the R.I. and C.C. highliners may not have known them.

No, it was a good idea for a thread but, you must understand, its human nature not to agree. Just look at this election. Its too bad that when humans can't agree, trouble HAS to start.
It used to be you could have an opinion and if someone had a different opinion, you would just have a beer and discuss the cute girl at the end of the bar.

Now, bullets fly.

It was my idea and I thought a great one. But too many of the nominations were about criminals. I saw what they did first hand. I even wrote about them in my books but I never named them for obvious reasons. It was a horrible mistake and I made it. I can't blame anyone else.

Miguel Sardinas and Bob Marsh recently put up a pair of nice photos. This is not new but they remind me how entertaining they are and that they enhance the site. Interest has been waning recently, in some cases the fault is mine. But it is my job to encourage attractive posts to restore interest in stripersurf.com. And I think, a long with new and interesting threads and posts, pictures contribute. Never hesitate to post both ideas and pictures.

Our software here measures responses but we could easily overlook the number of views accumulated on a thread. For instance, I put up a thread this week that took over a day for its first response; but 90 people saw it overnight. Lurkers are a big part of our activity.

The mystery of Frank/Francis just keeps on going on. I have these micro-soft add-ons that come in on their own and screw up my computer. Around the same time that Francis came back I lost all my favorates. Now, "Frank" is back which could have been taken care of by one of the administrators. Whatever ......

Four days without a post, response or question has been particularly distressing for me. The implications of this silence suggest that interest in the site is in decline. In order to continue as an effective social/surfcasting site we need input from members. If I am doing something wrong to generate this decline, please say so and I will do what I can to get us back on track.

I will try to post more. I am hoping that the radio silence is because everyone is out fishing.

It's the weather and hype about the holidays or just time to hunker down.

That's what I was doing, Chris...a little. We were in Cape Nay NJ for a few days. Made some nighttime casts down there, and a few near Sandy Hook on our way back north. Didn't catch anything, but the weather was warm. In spite of all our "pokes" at NJ, there are lots of great beaches and inlets, and the lower Garden State Pkwy is a beautiful road.

Fishing has been dreadful down there. Very few fish south of LBI. Soon....

At least you must be alone Chris, as every angler in NJ will be at IBSP, except me.

Been out of the count due to family time, work and vehicle issues and will be that way through the rest of the year (minus, I hope, the vehicle issues !)
