    Casting Practice

    We have a practice session nearly every weekend in Marlton NJ. This weekend it will be on Sunday (3/12) starting at 10:00AM.

    It has been a great thing with particiption growing each time. We had nearly 20 guys there last weekend running the gammut from accomplished tournament casters, longcasting fishermen and a good number of new guys wanting to extend their range.

    It is a tackle ho's dream day, casting equipment of every description is on display.

    We setup a marked field out to 700feet and there is plenty of room to have individual instructon from an experienced caster.

    Sounds great Kev, hope to see you there.

    Most guys using fishing equipment are casting 4 - 6 ounces but bring whatever you feel like.

    Bigfoot and I were there at 8:45 just in time for a downpour and lightning.

    Stopped raining about 9:45 or so, guys trickled in, we had about a dozen casters including some new ones.

    Hardcore were there casting till after 5:00pm.

    Slimedog, I'll upload the file again and email you the link again.

    Keep an eye out here, sometimes it's on Saturday, sometimes on Sunday. Next Sunday I have a NJBBA fence project to work on on Brigantine's beach so I'm hoping practice is Saturday.

    As soon as a concensus is reached with the Sportcast crew I'll post here.

    It wasn't too bad, had a good breeze but as long as the sun was out it was nice.

    I need all the practice I can get. Trying a new casting motion, it always feels weird to change things up.

    Sunday, March 26th's practice!

    This weekend's casting practice will be at Gloucester County Community College in Sewell, New Jersey starting about 9:00 AM. I will not be there, I have a New Jersey Beach Buggy Assoc. fence project on Brigantine's beach that day.

    The school is just off Exit 54B on Rt 55, just south of Deptford. Get off Rt 55 on exit 54B; take Delsea Drive North to Bankbridge Rd and make a left, take Bankbridge to Tanyard Rd make left. The College will be on your left on Tanyard Rd.

    You can see the school and get directions from your location on THIS GOOGLE MAP PAGE.
