  1. Awesome, I’ll take it. Shoot me a PM with your payment info.
  2. Looks good, hoping to buy the plug. Is there any way you could meet me at $100?
  3. Great, thanks.
  4. Also, how many ounces does the plug weigh? I’m hoping it gets down in the water a bit but isn’t too heavy.
  5. Hey, I’m definitely interested in the plug - can you tell me how deep it swims? Thanks.
  6. Bought a big 7”, 4.25oz popper with a big mouth before I went to Florida because I wanted to try to catch a shark on a popper (bucket list) but I ended up in a kayak or boat the whole time and don’t think I’ll find myself using it for a while. Never been swum. i want to trade for either a sashimi bull pop or a floating stickbait that will roll like a nomad Riptide.
  7. That’s what I figured. Happens with time anyway as the line softens/ gets used right, so no effect on the breaking strength you’d say, correct?
  8. Hey Guys, Just spooled a reel with white color pp 50# for an upcoming trip down to Florida. Did it the old fashioned way without a line spooler just by reeling the line (backing first, double uni connection) onto the reel through the rod guides with the spool of braid fixed horizontally on a table with the leg of a chair through the middle of the spool to hold it in place and also apply some pressure to the spool. About half way through putting the line on, I noticed some noise and then that the line was rubbing slightly (very slight angle, but with a fair amount of tension) against the side of the spool of power pro. I checked the line and there was zero evidence of any fraying whatsoever. There was however some white dust on the plastic power pro spool on the side where the contact had been occurring. The line itself had no fray and no dust, but the plastic spool was emitting a lot of white dust from the friction caused by the chair leg through the middle of the spool used to add tension during spooling, but since the line is white and plastic dust from the spool itself fraying are both white, it’s tough to assess the damage. Question is. Do you think the noise/ dust were perhaps just some of the waxy coating coming off of the pp and therefore NOT a big deal (or the plastic spool itself giving off some dust) or is it not worth taking the chance even though I can’t physically see damage to the line, and going for a big re-spool since there was any friction at all while it was going on the reel? Targeting Mahi, cubera and school blackfin. Appreciate all your thoughts, thanks guys.
  9. Sure, let me know what you find.
  10. Hey, do you still have this rod or did you end up selling it? Thanks.
  11. Hoping to find a 3oz surface tension lure in either pearl or pearl with the red stripe. thanks!
  12. Hi All - Heading to Costa Rica and want to get a speedy surface lure, have a few poppers. Hoping to get a pearl white 3oz surface tension lure in solid condition. thanks.
  13. Hi All, I’m looking to target Jack Crevalle from the surf down in FL this winter, most likely on the Gulf coast/ near the Intercoastal. I’ve caught tons of small jacks in inlets on metal spoons but want to target some that are hopefully of a slightly bigger class, on topwaters this time. I have a few pencils and a Yo Zuri talking popper for striper fishing here in the NE, but was also recently given a slightly larger Nomad Chugg Norris 7.5”, 4.5oz popper that looks great, but is huge: https://m.tackledirect.com/nomad-design-chug-norris-popper-lures.html My question for the group is: jacks aren’t picky eaters, but most of the jacks inshore during the winter are on the smaller side (although I’ve heard that the surf can be different). If possible, would you recommend downsizing to the 6”, 3 oz version of the same lure in order to avoid decreasing the number of fish that chase or hit the lure, or do you think that schooling crevalles will be unlikely to care, and the larger plug will give me a shot at any bigger fish that might be around? Thanks for your input.

  15. Hey, I found this thread and realize it’s pretty old but had a question about Surfcasting for jacks in Florida. I was given a 7.5” Nomad Chugg Norris popper, it’s brand new and about 4.75 oz with split rings and hooks. For targeting jacks in the surf, in inlets with current and up against sea walls, would you say to safely stick with this size, or would you try to trade the lure in for. 6” that’s about 3+ oz. thanks!
