Default New To Fishing and New around here.

Just found this forum and wanted to introduce myself, my name is Ivan and i live in the Bronx, i went out and got my SaltWater license and also bought a Penn Spinner V 5500 reel and bought an 11 foot SALTWATER 2 piece Rod. After talking to a friend of mine we went out to the ROCKAWAYS and did some surf fishing with some clams, i caught my first STRIPER, NOT a keeper, but what a blast it was, i took the OBLIGATORY pic and released the SCHOOLIE. I am now HOOKED on stripe bass fishing. After that initial outing i then went out and bought a sweet 9 foot, 2 piece DAIWA, medium action SURF rod and paired it up with a PENN CLASH 4000 to use with PLUGS and Lures. I am looking to do some fishing with some fellow anglers here, i can drive to your location for some surf fishing, willing to learn and buy you lunch. I do have a 2014 Wrangler UNLIMITED but did not apply for any beach permits, will do so NEXT year. If you are in the Tri-State area and would like to hang with a fellow Surf fisherman just let me know. I can fish on Thursdays, Fridays, and some Saturdays. Looks like im hooked.

Drove me crazy when I found out in NY (Long Island) you have to apply for the beach permits by March, or then again in September. I get out there on random times visiting one of my daughters.


Anyways, there a couple of NY anglers that hang out on Frank D's subforum on this site and occasional post up elsewhere.


New Jersey Fishing forum is by far the most active on this site, usually the current report thread.


Feel free to post up there, even if you are doing NY fishing. One fellow, Steve, is a former guide on Staten Island, and also hangs around from time to time.


Welcome, Ivan, and congrats on the first striper!
