  14. I have several abu Garcia 5500 line counter reels that I use for live bait minnow fishing in the reservoirs for large trout . I can't seem to find a decent reel cover to protect then during transportation . The line counter models have the counter protruding past the side plate of the reel . Does anyone know of a cover that will fit this reel properly not just an over size cover ? Thanks Jim
  15. Newbe here. I never fished for tilefish before and I plan on giving it a try this year. I live in NJ and I know of a boat the Voyager out of Pt Pleasant that fishes for them. If any pros out there can give me some pointers were to start will be a lot of help. Rods, reels, line and all else I might need to get started. Also when is the best time of year for success? Thanks Jim
