  1. Haha thanks, it's a funny picture with my phone on a rock, it was 42 inches and fat so around 30lbs at least I think.
  2. Would you split the peanut?
  3. It's worth the 10 bucks, I find it to be really accurate, makes no difference if you are on land or water. It was nice this summer for find deeper edges where the fluke hang out next to the beaches and points. I fish from a kayak without an FF and it helps a lot.
  4. I'm in eastern CT, and it's like the blues didn't get past the Race this year.
  5. You guys didn't see blues last year? I'm in the eastern sound and last year we had big schools of fish 10+ lbs mid August, they thinned out after that but I was still catching them until late October. This year, nothing bigger than 3 lbs from the surf, and very few of them, it sucked.
  6. I wish they made some smaller sizes too, a 30 would be nice for back bay type stuff and fluking.
  7. I'll take it for a 100 shipped. My first purchase on here, I've used paypal for a long time on ebay but never like this so just send a pm with what you need from me if you don't mind, thanks.
  8. I've also had really good luck with this reel, on its 3rd season and it has taken a beating, including a couple accidental dunkings with the only problem so far being that the drag clicker doesn't really click anymore. For sure give us an update if you don't mind, I'm curious how quick they are with the servicing process.
  9. Awesome, thanks, that's actually the exact lure I wanted to throw, I think it is 2.75.
  10. Can the 9' 6 actually throw 3 ounces well?
  11. I don't even use a ff, I like to find the largest concentration ledge/rocks/boulders in the area and expand from there. Pretty much trial and error soaking some crabs. A small rip is usually a good indication of where to start, I like to park 10-15 yards away and let them come to me like Tim talks about.
  12. I used my Tranx for an outing this year and it worked just fine, a 6lber barely pulled any drag. I do prefer the spinning for jiggin though, easier to pitch in different directions and gets to the bottom faster.
  13. Where about are you fishing? If I had freighters going by me regularly, I'd look for another spot. Don't give up after the first try, it takes some getting used to.
