  1. I stayed in Texas for two months and finally it came to an end. It was fun while fishing almost every day. People there are friendly and very nice. I plan to visit there again in Oct for big bull red and tarpon. I miss striped bass, fluke, cod, tog as well as tuna in Northeast.
  2. I decided to test lure rating of prototype 9'6" Black Hole Suzuki ultra light today. On the way up to the tip of the jetty, I didn't see anyone fight fish. I cast 2 3/4 oz spoon first and it cast great. I cast 2 oz Yozuri Mag Darter and I hooked up a king mackerel on the first cast ! I continued to test Daiwa SP minnow and Tady surface irons.
  3. When you go to a Korean restaurant next time, try ribbonfish ( kalchi).
  4. It is ribbonfish. Boney fish, but tasty is excellent.
  5. action of 12' Black Hole Striped Bass Special 2 oz - 8 oz for big red drum
  6. When we get new modified Suzuki Ultra Light rods, I let you know.
  7. catches using Black Hole Suzuki ultra light rods rated 1/4 oz - 1 1/2 oz
  8. 3/4 oz - 4 oz and 1 oz - 6 oz
  9. The new prototype 9'6" and 10'6" Black Hole Striped Bass Special moderate rods along with modified 8', 8'6", 9' and 9'6" Black Hole Suzuki Ultra Light rated 1/4 oz - 1 1/2 oz rod samples will be here within a week finally. If we are satisfied with the samples of the Suzuki rods, we will place orders for them. But the final production of 9'6" and 10'6" Black Hole Striped Bass Special moderate rods wil be late as we have to test the prototype rods first. We will get the 9' and 12' Black Hole Striped Bass Special rods and blanks by mid Aug as they say they ship them in June. Meanwhile, I tested 12' Black Hole Striped Bass Special 2 oz - 8 oz and prototype Suzuki ultra light rods for two months in Texas. So far so good. Here are pictures of red drum and jack using 12' Black Hole Striped Bass Special 2 oz - 8 oz with 3 oz spoon and 3 - 4 oz Al Gag jigs.
  10. uni to uni knot. But I had failures twice and lost big fish.
  11. Thinking of purchasing Suzuki 10 foot and pairing it with a 5000 sized stradic. What would you say sweet spot is? Generally be fishing under an ounce, but want to be able to work a 1 ounce pencil popper at times. 

  12. mostly spoon, but I saw some catch with plug and bucktail.
  13. The rating for Suzuki ultra light rods is pretty right. I need more testing to decide lower rating between 1/4 oz or 3/8 oz. For 12' Striped Bass rods rated 2oz - 8 oz the rating is pretty. accurate.
  14. afternoon session I used 1 1/2 oz spoon with prototype 9'6" Black Hole Suzuki Ultra Light rod rated 3/8 oz - 1 1/2 oz. It cast great. I am going to test 2 oz spoon. The rod performed better than I expected for kings. I thought the rod is too light for big kings.
