  1. Would the Tekota 600 (TEK 600) spooled with 50# braid be sufficient to troll a tandem mojo - max total weight 28 oz. I would think so but others said braid should be 65# braid. I think 50# is appropriate. Thanks in advance.
  2. Looking to get 2 rods to pair up with 113H or an Avet MXL to troll mojo or tandem mojo rigs. I was thinking of the Connley Custom Kingfish 20-50 or 15-50 rods. Any thoughts or alternative considerations. Appreciate the comments in advance.
  3. Was looking to get the Tekota 500 to jig for Stripers off of NJ and pair with a travels rod. Is the 500 to big or acceptable for intended use. Thanks in adavance.
  4. I am looking for a reel to troll mojo rigs ( including tandem ) and was think to get the Tekota 500 or 600 (not newer A model). I would likely use 40 or 50 # braid. Would the reel and like be adequate for the job. What rod would you recommend too. Thanks in advance.
  5. Penn Warfare looks like a nice reel and price is attractive too.
  6. I have 5 Penn 113H’s and an Avet MX but have some Shimano reels that I really like and would like to get one for trolling. Do you find the 600 versatile, say for jigging with eels - realizing I may need to change rods.
  7. Is the attached 113H a High Speed Reel and can I put wire on it for trolling bunker spoons? Thanks in advance. I know some 113H’s say High Speed on them but this one does not.
  8. Thanks gents. I will be pairing with a proper trolling rod. Appreciate the comments. Wish you all tight lines in the New Year.
  9. I will be trolling for stripped bass for first time in Raritan Bay for first time using spoons and tandem rigs. I went out a bought 2 - 113h (made in USA) and looking to use wire line. What type of line should I use for backing (braid / mono) and should the leader be? The reels came with 30 or 40 pound braid already on them and wondering if I can just put wire right on top of it or if I need to switch it. Thanks in advance.

  11. Thank guys and good luck out there.
  12. No need for wire just use the #40 braided line? Thanks again.
  13. I am debating between the SX, MXJ, MXL to use more from the surf than pier with #30 braid for Stripers, Blues,Drum, and a like. I am leaning towards an MX model as I think I could use when trolling for Stripers but not sure. Is this possible?I would purchase the MC version of the 2nd generation. Thank you in advance. Any rod recommendations?
  14. Thanks all. Looks like it will be the SX and will start researching and testing some rods. Thanks again and keep the lines tight.
  15. I am not looking for specific locations of your or looking to violate any protocols of the website. Are there any beaches or areas that people could recommend to surf cast. I know Sandy Hook is good but any other places. I am coming from Union County - fairly new to area. Thanks in advance.
  16. Looking to put some wire line on my Penn 113H for trolling Stripers. Can I spool the reel with wire when the spool is made from machined and anodized aluminum and not have to worry about corrosion. Or do I need to purchase a brass spool? Thanks.
  17. Thanks for the advice.
  18. Thanks guys. I am a newbie and looking to troll with Tony Maja bunker spools hoping to land some bigger Stripers. After the research done it appears as though wire or money are the two options. Good luck.
  19. Looking for a rod to pair with my Avet SX MC recently purchased lined with 30# braid. I will be using this set up primarily for casting from pier/surf/boat for Stripers. What brand, length and power rating would you recommend. Thanks in advance.
  20. Looking for a rod to pair with my Aver SX MC recently purchased lined with 30# braid. I will be using this set up primarily for casting from pier/surf/boat for Stripers. What brand, length and power rating would you recommend. Thanks in advance.
  21. Is the SX MC or MXL MC the better choice for bait fishing for Stripers from surf/pier. Looking for something smaller / lighter if possible but still adequate for purpose. Appreciate any recommendations for rods to pair with the reel.
  22. Thank you guys. Looks like the SX MC it is. Was also looking for SXJ however believe there are more multi uses for the SX vs SXJ.
  23. Looking to take some friends on a head boat fishing for Stripers. Can someone pls let me know what techniques are used. Any additional information helpful. Thanks in advance.
  24. Recently purchased Calcutta 400b for fluke fishing. What is the maximum lead that can be utilized without wearing out the push button? 3-4 oz? If needed to increase to 8 - 10 oz I am thinking I would have to switch to my Tekota 500?
  25. Need to get my Penn Conflict 6000 and 2 Penn Senators 113's serviced. I live in Union County, NJ. Can anyone recommend a place to have my reels serviced who is good and trust worthy and reasonably priced. Thanks.
