  1. Sounds like you were feeding a seal
  2. I just left them in Florida up to 10 lbs
  3. Looking. Let me know what you have. Will take a used saddle as long as feathers are long enough. Thanks
  4. Racist #1 found.
  5. Or is it too soon? Thoughts and prayers?
  6. Fishing is about fun and memories for me. A sea robin is my favorite species to catch on light tackle. There are longer, faster, harder runs from other species, but they give a blast on 4 wt gear and provide constant action.
  7. bunker snags. followed by giant metal lips
  8. Does anyone actually test gear out anymore without someone else reviewing it first? Or try new things that others are against? I just read a few articles on a few different topics that basically say that I've been doing things wrong. bottom fishing with the "wrong reels" tying terminal tackle with the "wrong lines" tying knots with the "wrong knots" I guess I've been doing it wrong. Time to start over! What was the last thing you took a risk on, and succeeded or failed, without the input from someone else?
  9. Giant Trevally Sea Robin Black Marlin
  10. You can drive a 57 Chevy. That's old school.... You don't have to be 100 to rock old ways. And it's not a bad thing. I have a bad shoulder and arthritis in both hands, and I'm 33. I feel there are benefits outside of just fishing fighting abilities.
  11. Perspective question. Since fish come inshore to spawn, is it fair to assume that they will continue to do so? Do you think those fish will head directly back to the farms after spawn, or remain on those inshore humps?
  12. It’s incredible to keep seeing “light” rods and guys not getting the concept of powerful rods. Old ways lol.
  13. Lamiglas Insane Surf 902m Penn Spinfisher SV4500 30 lb line of choice
  14. that's a lot of feet!
  15. Do throwaway reels really exist anymore? (Obviously, yes) but there are so many cheap reels that just need minor maintenance because they've taken the Penn route. Simple gearing. No fancy features and simple gaskets around the handle and drag. There are guys using old Stradics, Sedonas, BGs and they don't have any of that but are still work horses. I have an old $30 Pflueger President that I still use kayaking in case it goes overboard. Handles everything up to big bass. Why wouldn't a current $50 reel be able to handle the stresses of kayak porgies, blues, bass or albies? And 40# of drag isn't hard to have. A reliable, consistently smooth 40# of drag is. But 40# of drag locked down and a 30# fish sounds like you might be taking a swim anyways I don't fish over 8# of drag for any inshore fish
