Would I be undergunned with 8 weight rods?


If the wind was howling yes but I find a full sink line cuts threw the wind very well but your casting skills have a lot to do with it in the wind a good double haul is hard to beat most of the fish are right at the breakers so you don't have to cast to far for the most part .

All BS aside, some of us wouldn't even remotely consider an 8 hour drive. The idea of having a 1.5-2 hour drive is acceptable and a way to do something.

+1. As a veteran of 5 or so trips to erie, I can safely say that it's insane to go there from eastern PA. There's better steelheading at about 2 hours closer in NY.

I've thought about going to the steelhead jams because I enjoy seeing everyone so much, but if I go that far, I may as well go to michigan.

Fast fact: When in erie, you'll be closer to chicago than your home in philly.

If you're up for going, you won't regret attending the erie jam. I've genuinely enjoyed sharing the streams with my friends out that way. That said, the quality of the fishing in erie isn't enough to draw me again.

^good to know jay, thanks.

still being pretty new to the site, meeting a few members was honestly my biggest reason for working out the trip to erie. this makes more sense in pretty much every aspect.

I wanted to go to erie simply because i've never caught a "real" steelhead. I went to the SR last fall and caught a 15 inch steelie. I don't count that.

Erie would be quite a drive..and i would probably only ever do it once. But i would go up to the SR anytime I can find the time and someone to go with me to accomplish the same goal.

I HAVE caught plenty of blues and stripers. But only on plugs and bait. I have a fair amount of experience chucking "8nbait" in the surf..and plugs in the inlets..but never tried it on a fly rod.

i've always wanted to...and find it hard to pass up the opportunity to learn from those that know what they are doing.

So i am leaning towards the Salt as well.

Now..I have two months to get some salt gear together...

If it's any consolation to anyone, i'll be throwing an 8wt. I've caught a lot of stripers on my 8wt before and can tell you it handles stripers up to mid twenty inchers and moderate wind just fine. i'm sure a 9 is much better suited for big fish and wind, but right now my wallet is not suited to buying a new outfit, so 8wt will have to do.

I'm going to attend this, no doubt about it. I have all the gear except boot foot waders, so here's an excuse to buy some. Plus I may take a day or so off.

I've geared up for salt and only slightly fished it at OBX a couple times. I'm all for this; it'll give me some experience on where to go and what it's all about. So far all I've done is read up on it.

What kind of lodging is available in that area?

John

Salt or no Salt?

Sandy Hook is remarkable unique fishing and land form area (the Cape Cod of NJ state).
I have fished Sandy Hook several times and remember outstanding time I have had.

If you get lucky and the school of stripes or blues comes by, you will hammer them and come back home with sore hand from pumping the fish, than you sleep like a baby from amount of oxygen.

There are more fine locations in the area; one of them is Breezy Point – exceptionally unique bird nest and park peninsula with Manhattan and Sandy Hook view and Long Island beaches, including angler’s paradise - Montauk.

I’m tear apart between Erie and Sandy Hook jams and they are both appealing to me but I lean towards the steelhead jam.
Either way I go I will pack my windbreaker jacket first.

I put this on the calendar. Hopefully nothing 'important' pops up. I'll have to bring my gear home from DE.

Will we be meeting any where in particular or assembling at a certain time? Never been to Sandy Hook, so looking forward to it. Plan on bringing both 8 & 10 wt. I skipped the 9!
