Guppy Lure Company pencil poppers giveaway

As many of you already know, we at Surfcaster’s Journal are big fan of Guppy pencil poppers. Its one of those plugs that started as a “Canal” plug till Jersey guys brought it to the home waters and hammered the fish with it, and the rest is history. The consistency has always been one of  its best attributes and the fact they make it in different  variations to be used under many different conditions.

As of this spring and going forward , Guppy Lures are only available on their website at   www.guppylure.com and no longer at retail outlets.  Check out their redesigned  website and online store at http://www.guppylure.com/

Today giveaway features two Guppy Lures

Guppy Mini 2 oz pencil popper &

Guppy Jobo Jr 2 3/4 oz pencil popper

One winner will be drawn at random. Lets to it old fashion way  with “I am in “ in the moment box

Good luck, winner picked on the week

Tight lines to all of youIMG_0867

Surf Fishing Tip of the Week # 54 Fishing with Bait

Surf Fishing Tip of the Week # 54 Fishing with Bait Primer.
I know Vito is going to dig this one (he was the original chunker before his found his religion). All kidding aside, it is remarkable how many guys use (in my humble opinion)  undersized and plainly overmatched equipment while bait fishing.  You don’t see this much in the plugging game. 

Now don’t get me wrong, there are spinning rods and few reels designed specifically for fishing with bait. The problem is that average fisherman usually will not go out of his way to buy them. he will buy 6 custom rods in 69 colors schemes that do almost exactly same thing instead of a chunking rod. LOL

A little exaggeration  buy you guys know what i am sayin

Bluefish are making appearance this week !!!
