  1. I have three TMS 80 of different weight, and none have that issue. Great rods
  2. Take a look at the Shimano Teramar TMSX80XH. It will cover your needs and is a great rod to fish.
  3. I won a VR50 a few years back and use it on a light custom rod for tog jigging on a boat. Great small strong reel that works very well and can take the sea spray in all the windy weather we now have to fish. Also is a hard tail setup in the fall.
  4. Mike, Thank you for the response, Although I have read a number of your responses on this forum that were on point, showed a clear, experienced and knowledgeable response to the subject matter, I don't have a clue what "There is my personal recipe thread. Feel free to contribute" means. Unless it means this is your personal forum and all the unrelated BS with you and your circle that goes on and on for pages is your thing, if so........it's been a new experience of what this site is all about and where it's not going. Appreciate, L
  5. Other than Tog Jigging, I use a conventional reel for Tog. I use a Tranx 3000 AHG and a Tranx 400 AGH. Any sign of trophy fish I switch to a Talica 10 II high / low.
  6. I have noticed over the last five or so years, possibly longer, that there has been a somewhat drastic change in the wind velocity along the coast, Twenty to forty years ago, there might be high winds about two days a week and now it is most often five or six days a week. Does anyone out there have a data based reason for this change, and based on the current data, what are the coastal wind projections in the oncoming years? Appreciate all knowledgeable feedback L

  8. This is the first time I have ever looked at this forum, and it could be a good one. It appears, based on my review of the various subject topics, to be a joke/message center for some individuals that have made this their home to talk about "Their Circle Things" Talk about the subject or go talk about your issues or thoughts on the Town Tavern where your discussion is appropriate if so? I have seen a lot of good data from those individuals that use their forum for other matters on the subject at hand, but then there are pages of their own unrelated chatter/ BS. Why?
  9. Never had any issue with these Tranx TRX 300 AHG or Tranx TRX 400 AHG and when its Togzilla time it is always a Talica 10 II (the hi/lo can make a big difference on getting a giant moving)
  10. I agree with 832 but if it is 60 pounds and above it is Jerry Brown without and hesitation. Also use JB at the 40 pound level.
  11. I can give one observation. 20 years ago, there were two windy days and five reasonable windy days. Todays it is just the opposite. In the past when the temperature dropped and it stayed cold the wind was minimum. Today, regardless of whatever, it blows hard five out of seven days. There are a lot of very knowledgeable individuals out there, I would love the understanding of what has caused this drastic change.... other speculations are not requested
  12. There is something that always sticks in my mind that I find very applicable with sporting equipment for the vast majority.... I was taking a tennis lesson way back at about the time that the new thing were metal rackets, and I was playing with a wood Bancroft racket..... in that regard I asked the instructor about my racket and he said "Don't be concerned about you racket, it is a lot better than you" I think this is the norm more often with fishing equipment . reels, etc. for way more than the vast majority. Just a perspective that I feel is true with the fishing equipment I use that is very good equipment in the range of such.
  13. I took the winter cover off last Saturday for a plan to go through the engines and systems this coming Saturday, and detail and bottom paint the following week. Bad Karma- the temperature dropped 20 degrees this week and it has been blowing 25 to 40 for five days straight since the cover came off. The only good news is that the marina put the docks in this week (but the water at the dock is still only 43 degrees). Whenever, but there does not appear to be any rush, although, I wish there was.
  14. Sorry to interject, but I see a number of spark plug comments which opened up the memory bank. My wife tells me that before we were married and she had a house on the beach in Saunderstown RI, West Passage of Narragansett Bay, when the bluefish came down the beach feeding, she would catch and land them just using spark plugs, no hooks. She said her lab "Ski" would drag them up the beach as they were landed so they didn't get back into the water.
  15. I agree with DZ, fishing tog jigs other than vertical is a no go.
