  1. Want to have a rod built for fluking from shore and occasional casting to bluefish/ striper or albie etc. Want an 8-8.5ft max length but want a 2 piece (60-40 or 70-30 split) so I can fit it in my tdi golf easier. I tried out the Century ss1025 but it felt a little too whipey/ light and not able to throw 2- 2.5oz if needed as the rod specs say... will pair with a VR50 spooled with 17lb braid. Any thoughts on having a ss1025 blank tip cut down to like 8ft or 8'2" to make it a little stiffer to impart better action on the jig? Open to to other blank suggestions. I tried the ODM Frontier x 8ft 6 but it was too heavy (action and the factory rod build weight). The ODM DNA 9ft is a bit closer in action (however too fast maybe) but its 9ft. Thoughts on cutting the butt end down by 6 inches could be an idea perhaps? I want to be able to throw 1/4oz -2.5 with the primary range of 1/2oz -2. Last I heard about the Weapon... are they all 1pc though? I just got a Star VPR (pictured below) and fished Jersey with it last week. Right weighted rod for the vr50 but action was a bit heavier than I would like. Cheers
  2. Well if you are still on here Sam I have a whole set of these rods and love them! Great for travel to Florida / mexico / san diego. I use them in the summer on the Chesapeake for live eeling for Stripers. Currently looking for a 6ft Medium light A-C-602ML. I have a 6ft MH, 6ft Heavy, 7ft medium, and 7ft MH. PS my profile pic is a fish i caught eeling with one of these rods.
  3. They use pigtail slide rigs like this in Hawaii for GT (Ulua). They use anchor weights ( with metal spines) to cast and lock on to the reef. The anchor weight is attached to the line with heavy floss or wax cord. The weight is sacrificial. Then they send squid tentacles down on these slide rigs once an hour. If a fish gets on then they break loose the rig from the reef and fight. Ultimate cast 1nce, bait, and wait! Their surf rods have metal butts to lodge into the holes in the volcanic cliffs. They camp out at noon to hold the spot till dark. The night after the pics the guy I met caught an 80lb yellowfin at the same spot. Hardest-core surf (cliff) fishing there is except for plugging for GT in AU.
  4. Yes I plan on making the trip at 4am and fish to noon prob Thursday / Friday the tides look right. Do you or anyone know if the 3 day $90 pass can be purchased in the early AM (5am)? Otherwise I'd have to make a trip one afternoon when its raining as it looks will be a common thing next week.
  5. Headed to Sea Isle City NJ for family Vaca next week. What are the rules for surf fishing during the day and night on Sea Isle City beach? I have my NJ license set. Figure I will chunk with the family on the beach morning and evening. Any restrictions after dark or otherwise things to know? Also plan to get a 3 day offroad pass for ISBP and fish the inlet with plugs... Thanks All

  7. We used Circle hooks with no problem today and all fish hooked in the mouth. DNR relied to my email and confirmed must use circke hooks on ALL live bait no matter method. Here is email... Hi Adam, Keith is correct, trolling with live eels is considered another form of live-lining, and you have to use an inline, non-offset circle hook. This is basically just slow trolling and bottom bouncing/dragging a live bait. If you are trolling with ARTIFICIAL lures, such as "hoses" (surgical tube lures), bucktails, plastic shads, swimming plugs, or umbrella rigs, then you may use a J-hook. regards, Erik
  8. Hey all, Question, heading out for the first eeling trip of the summer tomorrow. I have a question on the new circle hook regulations... It says... Anglers must use non-offset circle hooks when live-lining or chumming. Anglers must use non-offset circle hooks or "J" hooks when using fish, crabs or worms as bait or when using processed baits while not live-lining or chumming (treble hooks are prohibited). Is trolling a live eel with a weighted rig considered "live-lining"? If so how? We have always used 2 J hooks rigged on a live eel (1 at the head and 1mid body) when trolling snd never gutted a fish let alone hooked any under 19 inches... Opinions?

  10. Awesome! They do exist! And on a bucktail to boot!
  11. Went down to OCMD Monday morning. Just got back. Original plan was to hunt for a year round rental for my buddy who is moving back down there and fish in between. Stayed at Oceanic. Fished Inlet in the Late Morning and later in the evening till sunset and nothing. Then watched Capitals win at the Pit and Pub and then closed down the Bearded Clam. Needless to say I had to sleep in lol. Fished late morning into the afternoon and gave up. Was gonna hit AI this evening but wimped out. Cut my losses and came home. Will try next week on the New moon. Did see some taug caught onnthe 2nd street bulkheads. The worst tho was watching a 16 and then a 20 inch blue caught as we pulled out of the Oceanic. Had already commited to the wifey I was coming home to take son to baseball practice. He was using Spec rigs which I despise for some reason... i have such nice looking bucktails!
  12. Just my thought but wouldnt all those fleas dead in the wash bring in the fish? Im hoping the warm spell last week will iignite something this week. Headed down Monday morning through Wednesday.
