  1. Love my Star rods.
  2. I've used that tie-able Tyger leader. It works pretty well. Terminator used to make Titanium leaders which were supposedly very flexible like their spinnerbaits. I never tried them though. They were very expensive.
  3. They're in your profile picture. FinS or BKD lures on a jig.
  4. I will give
  5. "catch & release"
  6. "bucktails"
  7. 2015 Ward Melville Fishing Club Expo!
  8. Any knot will work. If you happen to hook into a fish that takes you all the way down to a bare spool, chances are you're not going to land that fish anyway.
  9. Won't be cheap unless you can find used parts somewhere. But I'm pretty sure this will work for you if you want to spend the money. Stella 5000FA knob (part #RD 8188) which is about $65. You will also need two ball bearings (part #7786 & 7915) for about $20. You may also need 2 washers(part #8169) and 1 washer (part #8171). You will probably have to buy from a reel parts place like Mike's or E-Replacement Parts, because Shimano no longer stocks them.
  10. I'm In. Nice work!'
  11. I will give! Congratulations!
  12. I like this rig. Advantages? 1. Single hook reduces harm done by trebles to fish intended to be released. (You can use a circle also) 2. Bunker stays on the clip much better than using just a hook. 3. Hook point stays exposed. Almost impossible for the hook point to bury itself back into the bunker
  13. I have an older 2500 with a 3000 spool on it and it's a great little reel.
  14. Depends on the brand, but high end Shimanos have less than a 30% margin. House brand Okumas, like the ones that are always 50% off at Dickheads have much much higher margins, especially at full retail.
