    Rodbuilding,,,racquetball.......fishin
  1. Yeah hookers are nice:) i do have a wall full of the JJ jigs. Won’t show them
  2. yeah, when they are on the lumps down here, feeding on sand eels, we use thin OTI jigs, on the bottom. just lift up and jig a little like a eel coming off the bottom..that is fun
  3. Yes solid braid usually has less water resistance than hollow. There are lots of variables. if you drop a jig and drift away. Dropping it 100’. Might be 10 or way more feet short..And never in strike zone..
  4. if i remember i will post up closer to next weekend.. see how there catching or if stripers are around.. still in the seabass/tog mode though
  5. i think Kils out of the country fishin for a few days,, blue fishing is probably little different. most tuna fishing is usually in deeper water.. current, scope, jig weight,line weight, will all effect depth of your drop.. you may hear 90' and let out 90'100' of line..drift and scope may have you well above the fish,,,, getting in the strike area, is key....... when going for bluefin, a fast action with the jig rod, after getting to the right depth. get good bites. a jig designed for fast jigging will work good. yellowfin, i use a slower jig action. with jigs that seem to work better when a slow jig sweep with rod is used. of course, when we jig our guys use different jigs and actions. when a pattern is seen,,,guys do adjust to what fish are biting on..
  6. yeah, the sonar on TV has been used for years, great for bluefin in OBX,,,well, anywhere:) i have 4 or 5 go to jigs...i listed them. and use....they work for me one of the OTI i use and recomend at the shop ,i have caught many different types of fish,
  7. some of the boats we fish have big screen TV in the salon or out back with the sonar on so we can see the fish, and drop to that depth. most other boats shout the depths, you need to remember tide, and scope that will effect your jig depth when dropping...... getting below and jigging up thru strike zone is important. some jigs are designed to work with a faster jig motion, others are better with slower jig action.. thats why we have a few different types, sizes, and colors.. OTI have a few sizes, FC labo, PointT jude, hammered diamond, hooker ,are all in my bag...plus more
  8. Yeah when BT I like the stiffer tip when going to 5 or bigger, some guys like the bend in tip. i use a lighter tip for under 2oz BT. dragging bait, in 40-100’ here I like softer tip.
  9. That 8’ is awesome we have been using the 701 and 731 for everything, seabass, mahi, tog, striper. the 731 is a great tog rod. In that length..
  10. The 1025 are nice, the KNE a little more stout. Both fun.. the graphene is new and not in every Rod yet..
  11. Did you notice casting distance different, or just very noticeable when working the pencil. stealth models are nice what graphene stealth did you use for pencils?
  12. Good for Tog spin striper at the 50 and 90 bridge putting a 3000 reel on it..
  13. surf rods try jpr rods in OCMD and PA. century. lamiglass and more
  14. i will be fishing if possible that weekend. striper has been just ok, we are still seabass and tog fishing,,you looking for a beach trip or boat trip
