  1. I'm very sorry to hear this, my deepest condolences.
  2. I just picked up an Okuma Rockaway rated at 1/2 to 1 1/2 oz based on some suggestions that I received here. I want to pair it with a BG for use on albies from the surf. Is 4000 the way to go? It seems like the 3500 is basically the same weight and the 3000 may be a touch small for the 9 ft rod. Suggestions are appreciated. Thanks, Branden
  3. Looking to get rid of this mixed lot. 65$ TYD, which is just about half of what I paid for it. Everything is new, but please note that one pack of the storm shads has 1 bait missing.
  4. Looking to trade these darters for bottle plugs. I'm fairly flexible on color. Primarily interested in SS Bottles but willing to entertain other offers.
  5. Let’s go with this 1-5” bone 2-5” black 1-5” bronze (that’s the bronze over silver, right?)
  6. Sounds good. Depending on what you have I may be open to trading all 4. Just let me know.
  7. Looking to trade any two of the 6.5" mag darters picture below for two 5" mag darters. Fairly flexible on colors.
  8. Ok, I appreciate the input. I’m not sure that I’d be able to rewire them due to the way that SS molds the wire into the plug, but I’ll just run them as single hook baits.
  9. The specs on the Okuma do seem appealing. I’d be fishing mostly off of jetties, but I don’t think that the extra length would hurt. Theme that I take away from all of these responses is that many guys like 7’-6” and many guys like the longer rods too, I’ll try to handle a few different rods and go from there. thanks to everyone for all of the info.
  10. It's not the end of world if Cabelas doesn't carry the rod, I can purchase it elsewhere. What do you recommend?
  11. I'm looking to burn some Cabela's points and gift cards. I was thinking of grabbing a rod/reel for beach fishing for Albies and smaller stuff. I was thinking along the lines of a St Croix Mojo Inshore 7'6" MH (1/2 oz to 1.25 oz) with a Daiwa BG 4000. The largest stuff I'd be throwing would be Metal, SP Minnows, Egg Float/Fly, but I also want something that will do well with unweighted Albie Snax. Thoughts are appreciated. I'm not looking to spend a fortune, but want something halfway decent. If I can get by with something at a lower pricepoint, I'm all ears.
  12. I was recently given a couple of the smaller size SS Poppers and both had the front swivels cutoff. These belonged to the father of the person giving them to me, so they had no idea why it was done. Is this a common practice? Any thoughts on why it’s done? Im just oddly curious about this.
  13. I'll take that trade. Sending PM to coordinate shipping. Thanks!
  14. I'd also consider trades for a straight up trade for Super Strike Bottle Plug, SS 5" 2-3/8oz Little Neck Popper, OR 2 of the 5" size Yo Zuri Mag Darter, used is fine, I'm flexible on color as well.
  15. I'd also consider trades for a Super Strike Bottle Plug, 6.5" or larger Gibbs Danny, OR 5" 2-3/8oz SS Popper, used is fine, I'm flexible on color as well.
