Meet & Greet Thread - Member Introductions!

Meet and greet:

Hi, my name is John and I founded S-B in 99 or so to be an online community for Striper and Fishing Finatics. I live in Rhody, fish for stripers from the surf when I can, do IT stuff for real work.

My son, now 6, loves to fish - infact, I think we'll go fishing in a little while

I've had a lot of great help and support for launching S-B & keeping it going - so thanks!

Thumbs up

Hello ,

My name is Mike. This is my 4th(maybe final) full season of surf fishing. I'm getting married next September.

I enjoy fishing from shore with plugs and eels. I try to fish at least 3 nights a week and have learned more in a few years on this site than I probably would learn in 10 if I had to do it the old fashion way.

I don't have any plans to ever purchase a Zee Baas and I'm also pretty sure boat fish don't count.

Hi my name is Jim and I'm an alcho.. sorry wrong group, my name is Jim, I've been online here @ SB.com for years. I'm married with two boys 9 and 6, both are out of snoopy push buttons and are fishing with spinning rods. Baitfishing is where it's at for me and boat fish do count, but it is sometimes hard to keep count . For work I've been in banking technology for over 10yrs.
Go Sox, Go Pats!!!

Hi my name is Bill and I've always been kind of a pacifist. When I was a kid, my father told me, "Never hit anyone in anger, unless you're absolutely sure you can get away with it." I don't know what kind of fisherman I'm gonna make, but I want you guys to know that if we ever get into really heavy current... I'll be right behind you guys. Every step of the way.

I'm steve and i've fished most of my life. I worked a a commercial fisherman in chatham for about 2 years on a gill-netter for cod, haddock and monk fish.

My last season of striped bass fishing is this one due to my move to california this september. I'll be moving to Balboa Island in Newport beach and plan to focus on sailing for a bit until I can afford a boat on the west coast.

I love this site and plan to poke my head in occasionally. I've learned allot here and met some great people!

Thanks for a great site John!

Hi my name is Bob, i live in the desert. I know what water is for. One or two times a year i get to Hull Ma. to visit with my brother (rjinhull)and fish. We talk all the time as i fish VICARIOUSLY through him. I love fish porn. We talk long distance as hes fishing and im checking my sea chart to find him. I read everything on here to help me on my trips. Best trip had a mac have sex with my shoe (Does that make me a fishophile?), never washed it and kept going. big fish that year.

Hi,
My name is Mikey and I'm a rapper. I like to steal other people's fish and parade them down the beach.
OK, I discovered this site about 7 years ago while rehabbing from knee surgery in the winter. At the time there were about 40 members.
I would only talk to the Specialist, because anything else I posted would get harassing comments from the bassmaster, who now, strangely enough, is a very good friend of mine.
Lots of really good folks that I've spent lots of time with, most of which centers around harassing pictures, big blitzes, funny stories about my brother, and Portugese moonshine from a Sierra Mist bottle.
I usually fish North Shore, but also mix it up in Connecticut, Western Mass, the OB's with my bro, North Shore, then RI to finish it all up.
Recently I've travelled to Cutty to test the dfirst aid skills of Smokey and doc.
Well, that's about it. My name's Rick, look for the Bombardier sticker in the rear window.

My name is Larry! I have been fishing fresh all my life but started fishing for stripes about 10 years ago! The fever took hold quickly! After only 2 years I had a full blown case of striperitis.......had joined MSBA and become Vice President, had a 4x4 dedicated for only driving the beach and was fishing more than I was working!! I was directed to this site I guess about 6 years ago??? I currently hold second place all-time for posts! I am chief cook and bottlewasher of a small custom plug building business called BigFish Bait Co.! I learned how to build wooden fishing lures from the many generous and gifted builders who frequent this site! It has become a passion and an addiction and I truely enjoy building lures and catching fish on them.....it is such a rush!! I just got married in July to the love of my life, Angie, and she also enjoys fishing! I have 2 sons from a previous marriage.....Larry is almost 15 and Nathan is 13! Larry loves to fish and Nathan hates it so it is a bit of a paradox! I fish south of Boston, Cape Cod and Cuttyhunk quite a bit! I fish 99.9% wooden lures.......it is the challenge of tempting a striper to take a piece of wood that I enjoy most!

Almost time to get our fish on!!!

Well, I guess I'll follow suit, Hi my name is Jon and I found this forum a little while ago, with the intention of learning how to make my own plugs. I am down here in Falmouth Ma, I am in my first season of surfcasting and love it. I have been fishing most of my life, but never from the beaches until moved here. Prior to coming here I spent 18 months in Alaska as a fisheries observer aboard the longline, scallop, and king crab fishing boats. After that I moved back to Maine (where my wife is from) and worked as a sternman aboard a couple of lobster boats. That's about it. I also wanted to say that I am glad I have found this site, I have met a few people, but I really want to get more involved in plugfest, plugnight, and maybe hook up with a few people to do some fishing. Thanks!

60 % of the time, it works every time.

When I was 4.5, my dad taught me how to ride a bike by taping my feet to the pedals and pushing me down a hill. I fell and landed on my head. I hope that explains a bit for you guys.

Hi my name is Ralph and I like to fish for stripers. I found this site through Yahoo or Google looking for striper info. I work in the semiconductor field doing nothing all day other than checking out fishing sites and car audio stuff. I usually fish 2-4x a week and sometimes more. I joined this site last year when I was sent out west for work related stuff and now im on here all the time. : )

Hi,
My name is Eric. I found this site through a friend at work. This friend happened to be the founder.

In my real life I am a principal of a middle school. This has cut deep into my second job as a light tackle charter captain. I used to be a math teacher with summers off.

I got into the fishing thing sort of backwards. I started out flyfishing. I now rely on friends to teach me the "dark" side of fishing. Eeling & livelining. I have been called Darth Vader this year. I like it.

I tie flies, build rod, and recently begun to build plugs. I enjoy the challenge of figuring these things out.

I run a mako 192 cc.

My name is Tyson, I'm 26 and do graphic design/Advertising for a living.

I've been fishing as long as I can remember. I grew up on the south shore and was lucky to have a great dad that always took me out fishing. My parents owned a house on the vineyard till I was 10 and they divorced and the house was sold. I still get out there at least a few times a year and always during the derby.

I recently moved to the north shore from Boston and couldn't be happier to go fishing in back of my place and mountain bike across the street. I have a 17ft whaler that I don't use nearly enough. I still prefer catching from shore. I'm not good enough to be a plug snob i generally roll 50/50 bait/plugs.

Hi, I'm Jim. I've been on S-B since April 2005. Not too much into the postings, but I like to read and learn. I was turned on to S-B by a long-time friend Chris L (MSBA President).

I do the website for the MSBA and am the one annoying people at every meeting taking their picture!!!

I have freshwater fished for as long as I can remember and it is still my passion. Stripers were always a second thought until a couple of years ago and now I'm hooked.

I've met a ton of cool, knowledgeable people through this site and through the MSBA. John R has helped me out on a couple of occasions, on the web, on the beach and through emails. He is one of the best guys out there!

Great website and I'm glad to be a part of it!!!

I've learned a lot from this site, and everyone on this site is awesome! really a great bunch of people
