Bore Fever

Surf Alaska (17 min. ago) - There is a condition we call bore fever. I’ve been infected with it over the years, though my symptoms have definitely lessened after finally catching the elusive giant wave last year after a multi month effort. Bore fever for myself and our friends is an obsession with chasing the the bore tide that has symptoms like 7hr drives to try and catch a single wave.  read more...

Tube And Worm

Kayak Fishing Stuff - Tips and Tricks (2 hrs. ago) - I‘d like to share with you what has become the deadliest technique for fishing off a kayak in the Northeast. It's called the Tube and Worm (T'n'W). I first became aware of the rig in June of 2002 when Joey, Doug, Jim and I were in a tackle shop in Cape Cod looking at lures. We came upon the T'n'W and we discussed how it was one of the hottest big bass lures in New England. Commercial fisherman used them at night in the bays and hammered fish. We discussed how we should try it off of our kayaks but we didn't take it any further.  read more...

Stoke - Lost and Found

Novice SUP Surf (2 hrs. ago) - Can't deny I had a shite surf summer - part of the reason is that someone stepped on the season throttle and accelerated spring straight into Autumn. No sooner had summer started it seemed like all the leaves were turning brown and blowing off the trees. No idea where the time has gone this year.  read more...
