  1. It’s funny how out of all of the hobie brand accessories, a Bailer isn’t one of them. It’s a cheap way to have piece of mind out there. (I’m sure hobie’s would cost 3 times what everyone else charges)
  2. The gap does look a little bigger than I recall on mine, but those bearings aren’t like regular ball bearings. They’re cylindrical Rods that won’t corrode. Just try to avoid laying the drive down on the sand.
  3. +1 on the trevala s. I use the mh conventional for fluke and haven’t found a better rod for bucktailing with gulp. The tip doesn’t move too much with 2-4 oz jigs so you can really tell how much the jigs moving while still being sensitive.
  4. I see that RI fluke regulations are 6 fish at 19” starting May 1st and bsb doesn’t open until June 24! What’s with such extreme regs for this year? I feel like 6 19”+ fish per person is super excessive. Thats 4 guys on a boat being allowed to keep 24 good sized fish. Seems wasteful, although I’m not surprised considering how all of our fisheries are managed straight into the chitter.
  5. They’ll get the most pitiful slap on the wrist and nothing will change.
  6. I’m sure all the families of slain innocent victims of mass shootings would say the same thing to you, and people who resist logical gun control. All guns used in crimes were once purchased legally, by law abiding citizens.
  7. Hopefully this means there’s a new star drag or lever drag for inshore stuff coming out!
  8. How does it throw the upper end of its range? Can it throw a 3oz pencil well?
  9. I will take this for $100
  10. This is just another reason fisheries management should be erring on the side of caution. Using Maximum sustainable yield to manage a species is dumb and keeps the fishery in a poor state. The goal should be maximum abundance for every species. Letting the species get depleted one after another throws off the whole ecosystem.
  11. It’s kinda cool for a tropical environment, I wouldn’t wanna rip around around in New England being so exposed to the water and wind. 15k for a one person fishing vessel is also kinda steep
  12. I don’t know if there’s any merit to this, but I feel like letting the liquid turn brown stiffens up the baits a bit. Like ageing a fine wine lol
  13. You talking about the current administration or the people who are supposed to be protecting the species they manage?
  14. While fluke and seabass fishing, if I’m underway and spot a piece of structure on the ff I can put it in reverse and come to a stop instead of going another 10 yards before I can drop my bucktail.
  15. Hahaha darn
