  1. It's all about application I don't use mono for everything and I don't use braid for everything. Mono I use for fishing porgy/seabass on headboats because of the stretch. Braid I use mostly for surf, fluke and black fishing. Fresh water I use braid for fishing heavy cover for bass. Not going to write a essay on it but there are benefits for using both.
  2. Any 1/0 bait holder. Baitholder helps to keep the clam on. Never caught porgy on gulp minnows but I have on the gulp bloodworm.
  3. I stumbled across his videos a few years back. The guy knows his stuff by using his technique I have drastically increased my hook ups. He's clearly influential in the product market. Tsunami classic rods MH were sold out. Quantum accurist reels definitely increased in sales. I don't use his combo, but the terminal tackle and rigs I use. I do modify the rigs a bit. As far as gulp I prefer the the swim jerkshad in nuclear chicken or the sand eel gulp in new penny.
  4. 7 foot is fine. When I'm inshore on boat fishing for fluke it's the same rod as when I'm fishing from beach. If I go into deeper water on boat I have a beefier 7foot that can work 3oz buck tails and up. It's got to be a fast drift and deep water for me to use a 3oz buck tail.
  5. Picked up a rod at a garage sale for 15 bucks. (WMERCSBM70C1) its in great condition. Never used Wright & Mcgill/ Eagle claw rods. The model I have is designed to be a crankbait rod/heavy power. Working cranks in heavy cover. I was thinking about slapping an abu c3 on it and bucktailing fluke. Anybody have experience with these rods?

  7. Why are you embarrassed about it? The penn pursuits are great low-cost reels. I own 3 of them. You take care of them they will be fine.
  8. They can sell those products cheaper. I try to support local MAP stores when I can, especially tackle shops, but it is tough when I know I can get the same rods and reels from Amazon or Walmart cheaper. Along with a good warranty. MAP shops have to mark up their items to compete. For example one MAP shop I go to sells gulp for 8$ a pack. I can go on Amazon and buy gulp and get more for less and free shipping. One thing I love about MAP shops is you can haggle and make deals.
  9. Sea robins are tasty. They are great in a fish chowder. Or seafood paella.
  10. Spros are great the hooks are just massive. Pick up some S&S bucktails, rattletails, hurricane bucktails aren't bad either. I going to try the flex-jig swing arm bucktail. There are great custom bucktails on eBay as well. The main thing with bucktails is keeping them off the bottom don't let them drag.
  11. It's seems like you relied on your reel to winch that monster up. It's just not going to work. Loosen up that drag. Tighten it as needed. Upgrade to a 5000-6000 size. I have not have a problem with any on my battles.
  12. Take a look at the Tsunami casting rods they are great for inshore fishing. I have a couple different models. The TSCC-701MH sounds like it would be right up your alley. Medium-heavy power is different between rod brands. I use the heavy power model for heavier bucktails. I wouldn't use 12 pound mono your better off with 15-20 pound braid it has about the same line diameter.
  13. I have been using the dropper loop method for the last few seasons. I use 30# flourocarbon. For teasers I have some of those fluke candy teasers from jigging world or I'll use a glass minnow 12" above the bucktail. I have killed them will just a regular bait holder hook above the bucktail with a grub on it. I would stay away from too much terminal tackle (swivels and clips) it's just not needed. Keep it simple. I tie direct to braid. Going to try some of those rattletails and chrome spros this season.
