  1. Guppy Pencil / Magic Swimmer / Savage Sandeel
  2. For the canal I like to throw Outcast 2.5 & 3.5oz pencils
  3. I have an MXJ-MC - great reels for chunking bait in the surf - for plugging and night fishing I prefer using conventional reels with a levelwind
  4. For a new setup this offseason I picked up a Torque 9 and the new 11'6 Arra rod - the Torque 9 balances well with this rod and the 9 was not as large or heavy as I initially thought it would be before holding it in-person and matching it to the rod. Cant wait to use it at the canal in May.

My go to outfit is a GSB1201L with a Penn SSV5500 and 20# Fireline. This is the one I grab when heading down to the local south shore beach for an hour or two of plugging. Putting a VS150 on it when the new ones are avail. It's a great conventional rod, wish they still made them - its the lightest setup I own as well - its deceiving that its rated to 8oz and is so light and thin
  6. Spinning - Lamiglas XS 1061PP 1-4oz w/ a Saragosa SW 10000 Conventional - Lamiglas Super Surf 10ft MHC 4-8oz w/ an Abu Inshore 6501 or Avet MXJ MC These are my favorite setups for the Canal (95% of my striper fishing) - they cover everything from light lures, pencils, sebiles, and heavy jigs.
  7. Stren High Impact for chunking (on the Battle 6000 I'd go 20lb) - cheap and a good quality line (similar to Big Game) Ande Pink or Backcountry work good too

  9. I have the 30lb green slick on my Saragosa 10K and have been fishing the canal with it this season at least 3 times a week - no issues/complaints so far
  10. The 1205 is a great all around 10ft conventional surf rod and easily throws 1.5-3.5oz The 1322 is my favorite for 2.5-3.5oz pencils
  11. For plugging and jigging I use 30 & 40lb floro - Seaguar red label and Yo-Zuri pink (both easy to tie strong knots) For chunking I use 30lb Big Game mono leader or 40lb mono - I like to conserve my floro for plugging and see no benefit in using it for chunking. You can get floro leader at decent prices if you take advantage of off-season sales, etc - I would only use mono otherwise
  12. Slow/parabolic rods for pencils / fast action rods for jigging, metals, etc - it's good to have options and personal preference plays a big part - if you fight fish and horse them in mainly using just your reel then there both at equal risk to potentially break IMHO
  13. Guppy, surface cruisers, left hook, after hours - they all work and have there moments depending on current speed, size of baitfish, etc.
