  1. how fast should the retrieve be? should i let the bucktail drop to the bottom? should i drag it along the bottom? sorry for all the questions, I'm really new to fluke fishing
  2. What is a typical rig to catch fluke? And how do you fish it? I'm talking about fishing from mostly piers and jetties.
  3. Ok. I'll think about getting the 3500. But in the meantime, could someone please answer the original question? Is the Battle II or shield better?
  4. I'll consider the BG, but could someone still tell me whether the shield or Battle 2 is better?
  5. i can only get it at a discount at one place. what size penn does the bg 4500 compare to?
  6. from where I'm buying my reel, they only carry a size too big and a size too small
  7. Hi, I'm getting into striped bass and bluefish fishing from shore and on jetties. I don't know what lures I should get. I live in CT, and will be fishing along the coast, as well as a bit in Cape Cod and Rhode Island. What are a couple of lures to get me started? I'm talking about maybe 5 lures, as well as the colors. I don't want to spend over $60. I will be using a 9ft rod. Thanks
  8. Tsunami Shield or Penn Battle II to go with a 9ft surf rod? Mostly gonna be on the beach or jetty. And what size? Just wondering. (i can't get the BG cuz the right size isn't carried at where I'm getting my reel)
  9. Just wondering, I know eels blood is poisonous but is that only if I eat it or also if I touch it?
  10. Are there any mudflats/tidal flats, whatever you call them in CT? I mean like flats like brewster flats? where I can walk out for miles
  11. Is it safe to buy fishing reels and rods from Walmart? The online store has so many stuff a lot cheaper, but do they still have the same quality compared to if I buy rods and reels from say cabelas or bass pro shops?
  12. yes
  13. I'm looking for at least 240 yards of 30lb test line on the internet, but everything's like above $20. Is that too expensive for line? Where should I buy line? Any website recommendations would be helpful.
  14. Any good Tica rods that are good and less than $85? I want new rods not off eBay or something
  15. Between the penn prevail spinning surf and the tsunami trophy surf rod which is better for plugging? Which one is more durable? Talking about the 9ft rods for plugging. For those of you who read my previous posts, you can prob tell I’m at a low budget, less than $85 for the rod
